1. Minimize Sodium Intake

We understand its kinda hard to control the urge of devouring the mouth-watering fried snacks, the noodles, bhajiya, samosas, dosas and everyone’s favourite Pani poori! Not your fault also, as these food stalls pop up on each corner of the road. But, since they contain a liberal amount of salt and it is added to the salt you already consume with your daily meals, it can lead to hypertension and thyroid problems. So go easy on junk for a while.

2. Avoid Raw Food Outdoors

It’ll work wonders for your immune system if you successfully give a miss to your favourite aaloo chat, vegetable sandwich, momos etc. for a while. Streetside nimbu paani and fresh fruit juices are also an absolute no-no. And even if you do eat fried food, avoid the sauces and chutneys as these could have been kept out for a long period of time.

3. Keep A Check On Intake Of Spicy Food.

Nothing can be said that hasn’t already been said. Since this weather wakes up the urge of having delicacies laden with generous amounts of chilli, peppers, and ginger, plus a lot of oil. Give in to this urge and you’re in for a tummy catastrophe. They’re also known to increase susceptibility to many skin allergies. You wouldn’t wanna take any chances on your skin in this weather, right?

4. Try To Avoid Dairy Products

Sweet delicacies like Milkshakes, masala milk, chaas, and even falooda from the street-vendor or a restaurant can expose you to water-borne diseases. If you’re having dairy products, have some yoghurt or a packaged ice-cream. Heavy consumption of unsafe, contaminated dairy products can lead to thyroid problems and gas.

5. Stick To Packaged Water

Avoid water that’s been kept lying open for hours. Always order mineral water whenever you go out to a restaurant to eat. Water-borne diseases such as jaundice, hepatitis, and diarrhoea are more common in this weather, and your carelessness would prove to be the final nail in the coffin! So always play safe. Also, get your home water purifier checked and cleaned.
