Lose only weight and not confidence after overeating in festive season

Well do you need to be told that festival in India means whole lot of recipes from. And in our modern days, the recipes are not only those that belong in our family but spread from length and breadth of country. So its quite normal to lose it all and relish on whatever is on the plate which is lot in the festival days. But post festive season what you can do except worrying that loses your weight and not confidence. Well this may help.

You ate and gained some kilos. It happens with everybody, right? Yes, it does. But don’t make that a forever excuse. Accept that you have gained and now it’s time to move your butt and kill those extra calories. Take charge of your situation and make amends now. Stop sitting on those extra kilos.

If you ate for a month, it’s not possible to lose all that weight in a week. Don’t overexert yourself at the gym. Don’t make goals that are unachievable. Chances are that you will hardly get any results. Try setting weekly goals that you can actually achieve. If you can’t run or hit the gym, start by walking for 15-20 mins each day. Start small, and work from there.

It’s easy to eat junk when you are hungry. You tend to put anything and everything in your mouth. Don’t do that. Try planning your meals and carry them with you if you are out. Also plan your day and keep time aside for some physical activity (whichever you prefer). Start with 15 mins each day and then gradually increase your time devoted.

Don’t ever starve yourself. It would result in you binge eating later. Try eating 3 proper meals in a day and choose vegetables and fruits to curb your cravings. You could also eat nuts like almonds since they are healthy and they help keep you full for long.

You are never going to lose that weight if you are surrounded by those mithai boxes. Give away all the festive food. Empty out your kitchen, especially your fridge.

Replace that glass of soda with a glass of water. It’s time to change things up a bit. Most of the times, when you feel hungry, it’s actually your body craving some water. Try having a glass before you sit down for a meal. It will help you avoid overeating.

It is not going be an overnight miracle. Losing weight is a slow process. Every individual’s body is different and so is their metabolism. Give yourself time to show results and keep at it. Don’t stop exercising or planning your meals if you don’t see instant results. It’s a long-term process. Keep doing it.
