New Delhi: Its festival season! Yet, with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Navratri celebrations might be a shade or two different things this year, but certainly, nothing can dampen the excitement and spirit of celebration. Navratri is celebrated twice a year, once during spring (March-April) and again during fall (September-October). These are two major seasonal changes in which you become more prone to diseases. The Navratri fasting, if done the right way, can help you cope up with these seasonal changes, detoxify the body, lose weight, and strengthen your immune system.

For some people, fasting means feasting, and they end up doing more harm to their bodies by just gorging on fritters though. On the other hand, some people cut down calories drastically, which can be bad for the body. So, wondering how can you eat smartly without giving up your favourite foods or compromising on any of your merrymaking plans?

We spoke to two nutritionists to share their tips on how to stay healthy and fit without going on a diet during the festive season.
