The biggest binge-eating period of the year has just ended. Here’s how to sort out your system, writes Shikha Sharma.

For most of us, the festival of lights is also the festival of food. In the run up to Diwali, we tend to over-eat and over-drink, creating an acidic imbalance in our digestive systems. Here is a three-day post-Diwali detox plan based on ayurvedic principles.

Day 1

Morning: Lukewarm water with half a tsp honey and lemon juice. Follow with a decoction of ginger with tulsi leaves and cinnamon.
Breakfast: Eat fruit, not dairy and cereals.
Mid-morning: Green/herbal tea.
Lunch: Two bowls of spinach soup with a little turmeric.
Dinner: Potato and pea soup.
Bedtime: A tsp of triphala and wheat bran with water.
Plus: An ayurvedic body massage with medicated oils (Abhyanga), followed by steam.
