  1. Methi Ladoo
    Nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar suggests eating methi ladoo prepared with jaggery, ghee and dry ginger, for breakfast. She explains that it prevents stomach cramps and constipation, promotes intestinal mucosa and even helps keep the hair lustrous which can otherwise look frizzy due to a poor functioning stomach. The ladoos will also help regulate your blood sugar levels.
    You can either have it in the breakfast or as a 4-6 pm meal, if you are out of routine with sleep and even missing workouts.
  2. Buttermilk
    Another thing that she suggests is having a glass of chaas (buttermilk) with asafoetida (hing) and pink salt (kalanamak) right after lunch. Chaas is a good source of probiotics and Vit B12, while asafoetida and pink salt help in dealing with bloating, gas and even prevents Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
  3. Chyawanprash
    One can also have a teaspoon of chyawanprash during bedtime with milk. This helps in keeping the immune system strong and is a rich source of flavonoids and antioxidants, which ensures that the skin stays supple and soft even through the torture of the wedding festivities.

With these simple ways, you can keep your gut healthy. Besides this, bloating is the commonest condition when your cheat days are rolling. Therefore, here are some Ayurvedic remedies to relieve bloating, as recommended by Dr. N Srivatsav Kumar, MD Ayurveda, Kerala Ayurveda Vaidyasala, Nellore:
