The best types of roti to lose weight
The first thing we do while trying to lose weight is to give up eating the humble roti (and more often even rice). While every state has its own version of roti, the most common one is the wheat roti. An Asian staple with dal and subzi, roti is the most commonly enjoyed meal by everyone.
Because giving up roti might be difficult for some, here are three healthier alternatives to wheat roti by nuritionist Kavita Devgan that can help you stay on track while you are trying to lose weight.
Wheat roti with bran
Wheat roti has carbs, iron, niacin, Vitamin B6, thiamine and calcium, while bran is rich in fibre. Mixing the two can help prevent diseases of the large intestine, helpful in treating constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, high cholesterol, diabetes and even high blood pressure. The high content fibre in this type of atta can help you keep fuller for longer and thus stop you from bingeing, which is one of the reasons for those extra kilos.
Multigrain roti with chana atta
Though many people have moved from the traditional wheat flour to multigrain flour for good. But adding some more chana flour to the multigrain flour can make it perfect for weight loss.
Chana has a low glycemic index, which speeds up the process of burning calories by slow release of sugar in the body. Adding chana atta in your regular atta or multigrain atta can boost its nutritional quotient.
Did you know sattu is consumed as a staple in Bihar, Jharkhand and some parts of West Bengal? The best part about the sattu roti is that it’s tasty as well as healthy.
Sattu is full of protein, which helps to keep you fuller for longer and thus promotes weight loss. We all strive to get more and more protein while trying to lose weight, what can be a better way than having it the form of your favourite roti.
