- Exercise: Exercise or any physical activity is essential for losing weight. It can help burn calories, improve blood flow, reduce cholesterol, manage hormone levels and make your bones stronger. Even if you can’t go to the gym, everyday activities such as taking the stairs or walking your dog are good ways to start.
- Make Almonds Your Snack of Choice: When you’re hungry, snacking healthy is key as it helps you stay energized without gaining weight. A healthy snack has three main components – protein, good fats and fiber. Almonds, which have all three, you can carry them around easily. Just a handful of almonds keep you feeling full between meals and less inclined to overeat during mealtime.
- Avoid Sugar/Maida: They are two foods that are the enemy of weight loss. Avoid eating foods like Mithai, cakes, white breads, Maida, Samosas and any food that contains sugar or Maida. If you must, then try to substitute the Maida with Atta, and the sugar with less sugar, or honey.
