5 Weight Management Tips During Coronavirus Pandemic
During this lockdown, it’s easy to get lost in the cycle of over-eating. How to put that extra effort to manage your weight? The Internet is full of myths with videos and blogs on dietary plans for weight loss.
Natural weight loss is a lifestyle and not just a few months of strict diet plan. Focusing on high protein and low carb diet does the trick for body fat burning and losing belly fat. But there are other more effective and easier ways too:
Keep a track of what you eat
The lockdown might have decreased your body movement. All the gyms and parks are also closed now. It is a great time to explore online fitness classes. We recommend these amazing ( and free ) online classes from Cure.Fit. To really see the difference, do these workouts at least 4 times a week. A variety of workouts are available with professional yoga teachers and fitness specialists.
Try different kinds of workouts based on your requirements - for burning belly fat, strengthening the core and full-body, or yoga for weight loss or flexibility.
Cut Upon the Processed and Refined Food
Here are some tips to avoid this:
- Switch to real whole foods instead of ready-to-eats. Switch to food items like nuts, seeds, fruits, oats, whole wheat bread, sprouts and lentils.
- Cut down refined sugar, ketchup intake and replace with good quality jaggery, honey and unprocessed natural sugars like khandsari.
- Switch from nutrition less and chemically treated refined oils to Indian native wood pressed oils (coconut, mustard, sesame oil ) and desi cow ghee.
Drink water especially before meals
A study has shown that drinking water boosts metabolism by 20-30% over a time period of 1-1.5 hrs. 
Another one has shown that drinking a glass of water half an hour before meals help lose 40% more weight in dieters. 
Lastly, Don’t Keep Eating All the Day
Fasting is something which is taught by every religion in the world. Our ancestors were wise enough to incorporate good habits in their life.
Our body is naturally blessed to clear out the deposited fats and toxins with the help of blood. But if the blood is stuck in the intestines busy digesting food all the time, it is unable to do so. 
Hence, studies have shown that one should eat only 8-10 hours a day and fast for remaining hours ( commonly known as Intermittent Fasting ). The best time for cleansing our body is while sleeping, hence make sure to eat at least 3 hours before bed.
