During this time of COVID-19 pandemic, stay indoors and eat healthy.

5 Weight Management Tips During Coronavirus Pandemic

Weight Management during 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

track what you eat
Being aware of your calorie, protein, fat, carb and water intake can help keep your weight in check. [1]
There are some great apps available for download to help you:
  • Healthifyme: It has almost all Indian dishes, gives daily insights and provides paid plans to seek guidance from fitness coaches.
  • Fittr: Also has a similar diet tracker with all Indian dishes listed. You may also subscribe to a fitness coach.

Keep exercising

keep excercising

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

Avoid processed and refined foods

Eating refined foods is strongly linked to obesity and food cravings. [2] [3]

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

Drink water before meals

A study has shown that drinking water boosts metabolism by 20-30% over a time period of 1-1.5 hrs. [4]
Another one has shown that drinking a glass of water half an hour before meals help lose 40% more weight in dieters. [5]

Lastly, Don’t Keep Eating All the Day

Stay mindful of whatever you eat

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. [6]
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.
