It's a natural trend to eat light during summer, and you can easily do so without feeling deprived. 

It's also natural for one to opt for a glass of cold fruit juice or an ice cream instead of a hot soup. Interests shift from high calorie foods of winter to low calorie foods.

Drink water 
Youngsters usually consume more aerated drinks during the summer. But experts say that water is a smarter choice. Water keeps the body cool and prevents dehydration.

Have a lot of fruits and vegetables
Summer is the best season for a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables; make the most of them. Include at least two servings of fruits and vegetables to your daily diet. Fruit smoothies and milkshakes are easy to make and healthy options. Pan-roasted fresh vegetables or innovative salads are also a tasty option without being heavy on the tummy.

Curd and yoghurt are cool options 
Include some form of curd or yoghurt in your meals. Buttermilk is another great cooler. Having a glass of buttermilk or chaas just before stepping out into the sun, helps prevent dehydration.

Get in your protein
Many people tend to reduce their protein intake during the warmer months of the year. However, you should not leave out proteins altogether. It is an important part of your diet.

Salads are for smarties 
Eating a lot of fresh salads during the summer months is a great idea. However, when having a lot of salads, you need to make sure that your nutritional requirements are taken care of. A fresh dressing made from lemons and olive oil is going to be a lot healthier than a creamy, mayo dressing.

Make sure that your food is fresh 
All the health benefits that you get from eating light summer food may be wasted if you fall sick because you've eaten food that is not fresh.
