In this pandemic it is really significant to keep a regular check on our weight and health. We need to be extra cautious to maintain a healthy lifestyle contributing to healthy life. Weight gain has been highlighted as one of the indirect side effects of the lockdown. While many of us started the year with intense fitness resolutions to lose or maintain weight loss, unfortunately, we were hailed with a lockdown period that put a complete stop to our regular fitness schedule.
Here below we have 5 lifestyle changes that one can implement to lose the lockdown fat.
> Keep the stress away: When a person is stressed, the body releases a hormone known as cortisol which helps the body control stress. However, this hormone also increases the storage of fat around the abdominal area leading to an increased waistline. Avoid stressing out to remain healthy.
> Eat home-cooked meals: Eating outside food is more enticing than eating food prepared at home. Ordering in food regularly impact your health poorly. Eating home-cooked meals and eating right will enable you to achieve your health goals of reducing weight and abdominal girth.
> Cut down on sugar, salt and refined food: Extreme sodium intake causes the body to retain extra water weight, making it tough to achieve a flat tummy. Likewise, consumption of sugar especially when added to drinks leads to weight gain and other health problems.
> Physical activity: Just eating clean will not reduce your waistline, it is important to pick a fun form of workout you enjoy to reduce your weight. Physical exercise is very good to keep the body fit and agile.
> Get adequate sleep: Sleep is often ignored as an important factor when it comes to weight loss, although it is just as important as your diet and exercise. 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep is an essential component to shrink the waistline.
So, change your lifestyle and lose your lockdown fat.
