Waking up in the morning of 26th of December each year reminds most of us how quickly this year too, is drawing to a close. More often than not, it feels just like yesterday we welcomed the new year and it already is time to bid goodbye to it! With the new year, come the new year resolutions that keep getting more and more similar to the past year’s resolutions. But there is nothing to worry about as we have a simple solution for you to shed those extra kilos in no time. Here is a list of 7 useful tips that would help you lose weight post-Christmas:
1. Drink Warm Water
“Drinking warm water has many health and weight loss benefits”
Warm water is not only devoid of any unnecessary calories and is soothing for your throat, but it may also boost your metabolism.
For the best results, add some freshly squeezed lemon juice to a glass of warm water in the morning.
2. Stay away from hot chocolate
The worst festive drink a slimmer could consume doing the Christmas season is a hot chocolate as it’s full of “hard-to-burn” calories.
In order to reduce weight post-Christmas, you need to be staying away from hot-chocolate as it’s full of hard to burn calories.
Instead opt for a low-calorie warm drink like cinnamon with warm water, saffron with milk or black pepper and turmeric milk.
3. Cut Out Alcohol
During Christmas a lot of slimmers let loose and binge on alcohol, one of the best things for a slimmer to do to get back to their pre-Christmas physique is go on a detox.
In your post-Christmas detox, give your liver a break and cut out alcohol from your diet.
Moreover, a number of cocktails contain high-calorie mixers and sugary syrups.
So slimmers be warned.
4. Eat earlier in the day
Holidays mean that a lot of people like to sleep in, leading to erratic meal timings. However, when looking to shed the winter weight make an effort to eat early.
If you’re looking to lose that festive weight, it’s important that you eat as early as possible in the day and stay away from high-calorie or high-carb goods in the night.
You may want to finish your dinner before 7 pm and have a small healthy snack like a handful of almonds or some low-calorie soup, in case you feel hungry in the night.
5. Stock up on fruits and vegetables
What many slimmers find difficult to do is jump back into portion control after the extreme indulgence during the festive season.
A top tip for a slimmer to feel full is to fill up on low-calorie or negative-calorie vegetables in order to fill fuller for longer and load up on essential nutrients and vitamins that help with weight loss.
Include as many vegetables and fruits as you can in your meals.
For slimmers, festive weight can be difficult to lose, so it’s important to set realistic goals.
6- Keep yourself hydrated
While a major part of a human’s body is made of water and water being the source of life, we tend to be dehydrated more often than not. Facts show that being dehydrated can shoot up cravings, especially sugar cravings and we end up eating what we are craving rather than having some water.
7- Proper Sleep
Most underrated aspect of a healthy routine is sleeping at least for 8 hours every day. Our lifestyles are such that if we are not stuck in our offices pulling all-nighters, we’d be at home binging on yet another T.V. series. Sleeping is proven to be a crucial aspect of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. As much as it is important to workout in the morning, it is equally important to get a good night’s sleep and let your body recover from all the stress that it has been through, throughout the day.
