So you had a cheat week of sweets and late nights? Two top trainers and a nutritionist show you how toA� get back on track

Boxes of mithai, calorie-dense meals and playing hooky from the gym. Barring the truly disciplined, most of us can check all these boxes this week. So how does one get over this self-inflicted health setback? You can begin with a meal that includes a lot of dietary fibrea��the sooner you get rid of the unhealthy mass in your dietary tract, the better. Keep track of your blood pressure and cholesterol readings and pay your nutritionist a visit. Plus, it helps to stay on the move and do whatever it takes to meet the 10,000 steps a day target. We got three fitness pros to tell us how they would tackle the post a�?cheat weeka�� damage.

Mind-2Move on: Anjali Sareen
Accept you indulged and instead of expending energy over the guilt, use that energy more productively. Ensure there are no leftover sweets sitting around. Carry snacks or home-cooked meals to avoid eating out, at least for a couple of weeks till youa��ve re-established your regular routine of exercise and balanced eating. Set up a little reward for yourself if you do not miss a single workout for the next two weeks. Drastic diets or a dramatic increase in workout routines, especially after a week of over-indulgences and less or no workouts, is just an extreme reaction!Sareen is a fitness and Pilates educator in Bangalore. www.thezonestudio.com

Mind-3

 

Back to the core Mrinalini Sekar
Get right back to your routine, be it walking, yoga or whatever you enjoyed doing earlier. If you werena��t exercising much before, begin with breathing exercises, stretches and move on to twists and jumps. After strengthening exercises and spinal posture work, finish with a cool down. Include lots of water, fresh and whole foods. Core Combo, a workout programme at Blue, focusses on core strength and uses HIIT (high intensity interval training) to burn off excess. The routine, when done for only an hour, three days/week for three months shows great changes in tone, stamina and around the midriff. A new batch begins on October 27. Sekar is Programme Design Director at Blue Movement Circle. www.bluemovementcircle.co

Mind-1Go raw: Shonali Sabherwal
Cheat days usually involve copious amounts of sugar, so balance your next few meals with good quality sugars from vegetables and fruits. Stick to a plant based diet and keep away from animal foods, dairy, sugars, anything processed/refined, coffee and tea. Have a leafy green smoothie, or even juices for a half day regimen. Going raw is a great balancer and restores the body to alkalinity faster. A one-week detox diet, including brown rice, pressed salads, a good probiotic supplement, food cooked in no oil and soups is also a good balancer.Sabherwal is Indiaa��s first practising Macrobiotics Counselor and author of the books The Love Diet and The Beauty Diet
