5 Easy Ways To Keep Up With Traya's Diet Plan

5 Easy Ways To Keep Up With Traya's Diet Plan
Diet plays a major role in improving hair health or meeting our health goals. Dietary compliance can be challenging considering our hectic work schedules and erratic eating patterns. Often, one ends up ordering lunch and dinner rather than consuming home-cooked food. This is due to the constant need to keep up with a hectic work schedule, meetings, targets, and deadlines. During such times, it becomes difficult to plan out the day’s menu well with healthy foods. Day-on-day and month-on-month this process keeps repeating. Before we even realize it, this has developed into a habit.

Here’s an easy way to follow the diet plan rather than neglecting it completely.

  • Start by restricting one food at a time

    The hair loss treatment at Traya includes a prescription of ayurvedic medications which work on correcting the internal root causes of hair loss. To support and facilitate the action of those medications, a pitta pacifying diet or foods need to be consumed daily since an imbalance in pitta dosha is considered to be one of the main causes of hair loss, as per Ayurveda

    Foods such as milk and dairy products, wheat and gluten-containing foods and meat products can increase pitta dosha (heat) in the body during digestion. Hence, these food groups need to be restricted through the course of the Traya treatment. These food groups can be avoided one by one every month as the treatment progresses, instead of avoiding all of them together.

    You can start by replacing cow milk with plant-based milk such as Almond / Soya / Coconut / Oat or Cashew Milk. Gluten foods can be replaced with millet-based foods, brown rice, barley or quinoa.

     

    plant based food 

    • One-pot meals a day 

    One-pot meals include 2-3 food groups in one main meal itself and are packed with nutrients. A perfect example is that of Indian khichdi or Pulao which has pulse, cereal and vegetables combined. These main course items can be included for both lunch and dinner during hectic work schedules instead of ordering meals from Swiggy and Zomato.

     

    • Pay attention to portion control & sugar cravings

    Practicing mindful eating i.e. consuming meals or foods only when hungry and stopping when we feel 75% satiated, helps to limit the frequency of meals consumed and also helps in portion control. Increasing fibre intake throughout the day through fruits, vegetables, and pulses can help in reducing sweet cravings.

     

    • Avoid eating until necessary. 

    Limit the intake of meals to only 3-4 main ones throughout the day instead of consuming meals every 2 hours. 3-4 main meals a day helps to keep the metabolism going while improving concentration.So we won't have to tax our brains on what to keep consuming every 2 hours!

    If you wish to snack, opt for healthier alternatives like popcorn, puffed rice (Kurmura) or flaked rice (Poha Chivda).

     

    • Switch to better sources of proteins

    Adequate protein intake is necessary for better hair health. Rich animal sources of proteins like milk, poultry, eggs can be replaced with better vegan sources of proteins such as soya, pulses, beans & legumes, nuts and oilseeds which helps improve digestive capacity as well as meets the required protein intake.  

    Takeaway :

    A healthy, balanced diet plays a crucial role as part of the holistic approach for treating hair loss along with medicines. Paying adequate attention to the diet becomes imperative if you wish to see the desired hair growth results. Good habits are rewarding, one step at a time.
