Today June 21st is being celebrated as International Yoga Day and early morning Fb and internet was full of Yoga posts. Most of the school and college kids had compulsory Yoga sessions in their institutions. Yoga is not something to be celebrated on any one day in a year, yes it can be a beginning of a daily affair.
Yoga along with a healthy diet can make anyone lose extra weight in a healthy way. Here is a daily schedule which can help all of us who are struggling for weight loss. Along with every one else we at IWB also are celebrating International Yoga Day.

Ten minutes after fruits, have a cup of green tea with lemon.. (honey too can be added)
Do some deep breathing to help with stress issues. Deep breathing helps in calming emotions too.
After 5 minutes of deep breathing have a glass of buttermilk with or without sendha namak (Himalayan Pink Salt) You can add roasted jeera also.
Start with a glass of water.
Have a bowl of salad with lots of cucumbers, tomato, onion, carrots and lemon juice.
After that one bowl of boiled whole grain dal with one spoon desi ghee added.
Finish off with a glass of warm saunf water and sit in this position….
If you can manage, you must have an afternoon nap. It helps relax the brain and refresh the body.
A cup of tea without sugar or a cup of lemon tea with honey would be great options.
Have a handful of roasted chana with tea.
or if you don’t take tea then have a fruit slush.
A fifteen to twenty minutes yoga session or a forty minute walk is must. Start with deep breathing and then move on to spot walking. You can spot jog also if you feel fit for that. End with a few stretches which will help lengthen your muscles and bones.
Dinner should be light soup
and salad. Find salad recipes here...
After dinner walk is must… always go for fifteen to twenty minutes walk.
End your day with a small cup of warm haldi (turmeric) milk. Do not add any sugar.
The best way to end your day is with the help of Shavasana… (my favourite asan)
The final word
This regimen must be made into a lifestyle for best results. Those who are light eaters can follow this diet daily while those who cannot stay without grains, must do this strictly every alternate day.
