You always want to shed a few pounds. You always want to eat your favorite food but always have this fear of gaining extra pounds.Nearly 7 out of 10 people will say “YES” if you ask them “ARE YOU TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT”
Formula is so simple “Eat Less Burn More” yet it is very hard to follow. We all agree to that. You get exhausted after whole day working in office and you are very busy as soon as you wake up. Most of us do not have time to eat healthy breakfast and we just put anything in our mouth without giving a single thought about the nutrition value of the food.
We all can achieve our desired goal of weight loss by making small changes in our busy lifestyles.
Here are tips that offers to help busy IT professionals to lose weight without being miserable.
Eat only when you are hungry
If you’ve just had lunch, there is no reason for your mouth to water at the sight of Chhole bhature or pizzas when you go grocery shopping. Do not be tempted. Think about your stomach. It isn’t a machine that can digest so much food together nor is it a dustbin in which you can throw all that you want! Plan your day in such a way that you are able to eat three main meals along with 1-2 snacks.
Eat only as much is required
If you’re eating your favorite tilli wali kulfi Or and ice cream sundae , do not be greedy. Eat only as much is required. One kulfi in a week is ok. But just because we are saying once a week doesn’t mean that you eat three in one go. Similarly, if you’re eating your favorite vegetable curry or butter chicken, don’t eat as if it’s your last day. Eat only as much is required to satisfy your hunger.
Limit social drinking and get- together
Social drinking is ok as long as you’re not socializing everyday and drink within limits. Too much alcohol also makes you fat and also affects the liver. A person doesn’t realize how much and what he/she is eating at such parties. Drink moderately and pay attention to whatever you’re eating. If you’ve already has too many snacks, maybe you can skip dinner.
Use less ghee while cooking
It is just not difficult to cook a good dish with less ghee so put it in a corner of your kitchen and use it less often. Try cooking food in olive oil or sesame oil. Just a tablespoon of oil is good enough so why let it float on top of your curry? You can even prepare paranthas with less ghee. Put them in an oven or electric tandoor and enjoy tandoori paranthas. They will be nice and red in no time and require less ghee. Eat your paranthas with curd and if you really want butter, take only a very small quantity of it.
Put some strain on your legs
Most Punjabis just want a good body without doing anything. They will not give up on their eating habits and continue to eat fried foods and sugars and then crib that their weight is not decreasing! Well, you can’t have both. You need to keep a check on what you eat and also put some strain on your legs. You must go for a walk and also exercise for some time every day to shed the extra kilos off your body. Jog, skip, dance, just do whatever you like but do get some action.
Drink lots of water
When you’re thirsty, drink water. Tea, coffee and colas can never quench your thirst. They make you feel even more thirsty and hungry too. Drink as much water as you can. Water will quench your thirst optimally and it makes you feel fuller so that you do not snack unnecessarily. Avoid aerated drinks, fruit juices and cocktails since they will only give you calories. Have some fat-free buttermilk in summers.
No more chai pakora parties in the evening
Say goodbye to your fried snacks like samosas, tikkis, pakoras and the like. Stay away from mutthis, kachoris and pooris. Drink green tea with a handful of assorted nuts. Not only are these fat-free, they contain lots of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. Eat a fruit in the evening or between meals.
Eat lots of salads
Proceed to your lunch and dinner with a big plate of salad. This will give you a lot of fiber which helps in digestion and it fills your tummy. After eating salad, you will not feel like having a lot of carbs.
Choose your carbs selectively
Pooris, bhaturas and naans will have to take a backseat. You should eat plain chapattis and paranthas with less fat. Avoid white bread . Choose brown bread but don’t eat bread too often. Have a healthy breakfast like poha or upma in place of bread rolls and bread pakoras.
Detox your body once in a while
It is very important to cleanse your body of all the toxins. You can consume some super foods that can do the trick for you. Some examples of foods that help to detoxify the body are flax seeds, almonds, walnuts, tomatoes, spinach, carrots and oranges. Just add some lemon juice to a glass of water and drink it in the morning.
