Winter is here and it is time for us to brace you towards the weight gain. But before worrying about weight gain, worry about reducing the already piled weight.
Winters do make us lazy. Skipping gym seems justified. So we have got you these natural remedies that will help you reduce weight and keeps you from putting on more.
Sip on Herbal Tea
To gain something, you have to lose something. But it is the other way round here. To lose those pounds, start gaining on the goodness of herbal tea.
Most of us have tea as our guilty-pleasure. Swap your regular tea with some herbal tea. The antioxidants present in the herbal tea helps in burning fat faster.
Herbal teas like cinnamon tea, ginger tea, green tea, peppermint tea etc. are some herbal teas that will definitely help you lose some weight.
These herbal and green teas flush out the toxins and harmful nitrogenous waste present in your body. This is the leading cause of excessive weight loss.
Cut down on Sugar
Sugar isnai??i??t exactly the ai???villainai??? in your life. But as sugar makes a great comfort food, we end up consuming it in excess.
When we consume sugar in excess, the glucose level in our body goes up. High level of glucose in your bloodstream is toxic and causes resistance to insulin in the blood.
Also, Sugar produces some extra fatty substance in your body that lines up in your liver and stomach. This makes you unfit and can cause many health problems.
By reducing the amount of intake of sweet and substances, you can maintain your body.
You donai??i??t have cut out all of the sugar. Make a habit of taking your tea or juice without sugar.
Reduce your Sodium intake
Salt, just like sugar, when consumed in excess is harmful to your weight goals.
Salt contains large amounts of sodium. Although sodium is good in keeping some diseases like hyponatraemia at bay but excess of it can affect your body by causing weight gain. Many studies have proved that excess of sodium leads to weight gain.
When we limit our daily intake of salty substances in the food, it also reduces the water retention that makes us look fat.
Get enough Sleep
We all love to sleep. So does the weight loss! (Hurray).
Lack of good sleep can affect overall mental as well as physical health. This mental and physical stress drives you to eat more and make it harder to shed those already there extra pounds.
In addition to this, people who are sleep-deprived tend to have an increase in ghrelin production. Ghrelin is a hormone which makes you think that you are hungry. And you end up eating more.
Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Make sure to keep all your electronic devices at bay before bedtime. The light of these electronic devices affect your circadian system and slows down your biological clock, which makes it harder for your body to regulate your sleep pattern.
Indulging your body in some form physical activity daily can give a major boost to your weight loss goal.
Exercising regularly will also keep you happy, as doing physical activity releases the happy hormone ai???endorphinai???. A happier you will be more confident and positive towards your goals.
