We keep rummaging through weight loss recipes, nutritionists’ guides and tips for weight loss, but we still find it difficult to achieve our dream-figure or physique. In a bid to lose weight faster, we take on expensive yet unhealthy fad diets. However, we forget about the savoury dish – the flattened rice or poha – that originates in the Indian subcontinent. This diet-friendly delicacy is easily and economically available in any part of the country. Poha can be cooked simply and quickly in varied forms. Having poha for breakfast can prove effective for your weight loss goals as it can be easily digested, thus, increasing the metabolic rate of the body. This low-calorie diet is rich in fiber, protein and iron. It is fat-free, gluten-free and provides instant energy to the body.
