Foods To Avoid This Summer



June is approaching, and the temperature is set to soar further. In this summer heat, one must know what to eat and WHAT NOT TO EAT, to stay healthy and fit!

We bring you a list of few things which must be avoided in this summer heat.

  1. Spices and chillies – No matter how much a spice-lover you are, the more the consumption of species and chillies in this summer heat, the more the risk of summer problems. These things generate a lot of heat inside the body, increase the metabolism rate, and can also hamper the effect of anything cool that you eat.

So, try and avoid spice for a month or two!

  1. Caffeine –People depend on tea and coffee to function properly throughout the day, but do you know that these are bad, especially in this weather? Caffeine generates excess of heat in the body. Try going for other cool drinks like coconut water, lemonade to stay cool and active.
  2. Alcohol – Do your body a favour by staying away from alcohol during the peak of summer. It might feel great sipping a glass of drink after a tiring day, but it is harming your body in ways you can’t imagine. In fact, alcohol increases so much heat in your body that it can also lead to a heat stroke. So, summers and alcohol are a big no-no.
  3. Fried food – Who doesn’t love chai and pakoras? Everyone does! But one must resist these in summers, as they can be your bane. Fried food is also bad for your stomach in this heat, and can be a cause of many problems. Stop your urge for a while and be nice to your body!

With mercury levels shooting to new heights daily, it’s imperative to take utmost care of your health and body!
