These 4 tips will keep away winter weight gain — despite comfort-food cravings, evenings on the couch, and roomy sweaters that hide every bulge.
- Eat foods that contain water
This is the best way to stay away from indulging in unhealthy foods. Foods that have higher water content add volume to your diet rather than adding extra, unwanted calories. Have more of steaming vegetable soups and hot cereals. Fresh fruit juices are also a good option for losing weight in a healthy way.
- Go out for a morning walk or jog
Exposure to sunlight can help you to maintain serotonin levels in your body. Serotonin is a chemical in the brain that is partially responsible for giving you a feeling of fullness. So, an early morning jog will not only help you to burn calories but also curb your food cravings and tendency to overeat after performing rigorous physical activity.
- Eat a protein rich meal
High-protein intake seems to misguide the brain about the amount of food you eat. So, you could actually eat less but feel that you’ve had sufficient food. Include eggs, milk, paneer and other dairy products in your diet. Sprouts, dals, peas, beans are also good protein sources.
If you’re a non-vegetarian, have chicken breasts and fish. But keep in mind that exercising is also important. You can’t just expect to lose weight by just eating good protein sources.
- Sleep well
During winters you obviously tend to feel cozy and relaxed after you pull over the blanket. But it’s also a good way to reduce weight. Research suggests that people who sleep for less than 6 hours tend to gain more weight compared to people who slept at least for 7-8 hours.
As a healthy diet and exercise are of the utmost importance, we strongly recommend the Manna Blood Sugar Support supplement with each meal to curb cravings and supress appetite.
You can also make a delicious hot shake with the Manna Shakes (Chocolate or Caramel). Make this shake with hot milk and use it as a meal replacement.
