How To Lose Weight During COVID-19 Lockdown

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Do you all remember that when 2020 started, all of us were very enthusiastic about our new year goals and resolutions? Well, it did not turn out that good or we can say backfired in a very bad way. above all, do you remember the New Year resolution you took to eat healthily and lose weight? Perhaps it’s time to do something about it. Here’s what we have put together to help you start with small, gradual steps.

1. Cut Back On Your Salt Intake

Eating too much salt can end up with you gaining weight because salt promotes water retention. Therefore, it is recommended to only take the required amount of salt.

2. Do Not Eat After 8 PM

Eating food hours before you sleep helps you digest it in a better way rather than eating and just going straight to bed. Give time to your body to stabilise and digest food and promote healthy weight management.

3. Consistency In A Balanced Diet

Try adding all essential macronutrients and micronutrients in your diet. Such as carbs, good fats and good quality protein. These are the ingredients that aid in keeping us healthy and lose weight. Remember not to add or eliminate any nutrients from your diet without consulting a dietician/nutritionist.

4. Liquid Intake

Apart from solid food, your body needs liquids also. Drink herbal tea, green tea and coffee at alternate times to give yourself some liquid energy apart from solid foods only. These liquids keep away from unhealthy snacking and are good for digestion, healthy kidneys and skin.

5. Add Seasonal Fruits And Vegetables To Your Diet

Make it a habit to have at least 2-3 fruits every day. Seasonal fruits have a wide range of healthy antioxidants and are also enriched with fibre that promotes weight loss and gives you the required amount of nutrition

6. Divide Large Meals Into Small Portions

It is always said to divide your big meals into small multiple meals because it helps you track your calories as well as is good for our metabolism.

7. Try Avoiding Processed, Tinned And Junk Food

These foods come with a lot of fats and calories which are certainly not good for our weight and health. It is recommended by dieticians and doctors to avoid these type of foods as much as you can. You can still have a cheat day once after two or three weeks.

8. Start Your Day With Honey And Lemon Water

The first thing you should do after waking up is to get yourself a warm cup of water with half teaspoon honey and one teaspoon lemon in it. It supposedly helps rejuvenate you, helps you get rid of toxins and revs up your metabolism.

9. Workout

Do not let yourself fall for laziness as it is the greatest contributing factor supporting weight gain. Find yourself a nice app or good videos from the internet to workout. Play nice music and stay motivated towards fitness and losing weight.

10. Drink Lots Of Water

Staying hydrated is a key to lose weight. Drink plenty of water and try having a glass of warm water half an hour before every meal. This is a tried and tested way of losing weight.
