Monsoon: Health tips to lose weight
The monsoon is here.
And although the rainy season is sure to offer some much-needed respite from the scorching summer heat, the ongoing transition period may bring undue health risks.
To stay on the safe side, you need to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Here are handy health tips to stay fit/lose weight in a healthy way during monsoon.
In order to lose weight in a healthy way, it is important to take a balanced and nutritious diet.
Aim for more and more fiber and protein in your diet. By filling you up, these nutrients help prevent unhealthy snacking.
Also, street food should be completely off the menu.
Additionally, include immunity-boosting foods such as garlic, ginger, turmeric, mushrooms, citrus fruits to avoid infections/diseases.
Ensure proper hydration
Your want to sip water may reduce during the rainy season. But excessive perspiration due to increased humidity during monsoon may leave you dehydrated.
So, keep sipping water throughout the day.
It will help flush out toxins and impurities from your body, thus helping in weight loss.
Other healthy beverages like herbal teas and soups should also be consumed on a regular basis.
Regular exercise can be a great way to cut down unwanted fat from body.
And if that's not motivating enough, know that exercise can help improve your sleep quality, blood flow, mood, and general mental well-being.
However, there is no need to go out of line. Simple cardio workout sessions, like running, jogging, biking etc. can help.
Pay attention to your snacks
If you wish to lose weight, replace those packs of potato chips, double-cheese burgers, and fizzy drinks with healthy options- fruits, nuts, oats etc.
