With the advent of the holiday season, most of us are ready to gorge on delicacies.
But some of us are also worried about the ever increasing waistline and addition of another chin fold! But that should not deprive our taste buds and tummies from the feel of rich sumptuous dishes this season.
So what can we do? There are tons of sites and magazines bringing out weight loss tips and foods that help us loose weight
1. Walk With Company You Love
There is no alternative to walking 20 minutes a day to keep your body fit. No matter what the odds, try to religiously walk for 20 minutes anytime during the whole 24 hours.
2. Stop Starving Yourself
When you starve yourself to loose weight, it does severe damage to your body. And this is not a long term method to loose weight. So once the starvation period is up, we tend to pile up on calories more than ever. So stop starving yourself if you really want to loose weight, and start eating healthy.
3. Say Yes To Vegetables & Whole Grains
Make cabbage, broccoli, gourd, beans, carrots, lettuce and similar vegetables your best friends and see those extra pounds shed away within months. Make whole grains a staple in your diet and see a new wave of energy flow through your system without adding love handles to your waistline.
4. Make Water Your Constant Companion
Water is a wonder drug for weight loss. Consciously drink eight to ten glasses of water daily, irrespective of the weather or your schedule. Drinking a glass of lukewarm water first thing when you wake up, squeezing in half a lemon along with a teaspoon of honey and a quarter teaspoon cinnamon powder to that glass of water is another brilliant way to stay fit and lose the extra pounds slowly and steadily.
5. Active Life Is key To Healthy Life
Now you don't really have to go on an exercise spree to lose weight quickly.
Engage in interesting and fun activities that will not bore us. Participate in marathons, go swimming, and plan a camp night every month with friends or family. Go fishing, or kite flying, or spend time planting and watering new plants. Whatever you do, avoid sitting in front of the television or computer or any electronic gadget for more than an hour.
6. Stop Eating Fried and packaged snacks
Fried and packaged snacks are your worst enemies. Detest them or at least try to. And aerated drinks are nothing but pressurized carbondioxide and tons of sugar. Why bother even looking at them? Instead enjoy the freshness of coconut water and unsweetened fruit juice. It is not just healthy but classy and exotic too.
