According to experts, weight gain has been one of the biggest problems for people in the post COVID recovery and during the pandemic. Low activity levels and frequent meals are the most common causes of weight gain.
However, if you want to lose some weight, make sure you make appropriate modifications in your diet. Here are some tips that you can keep in mind:
Skipping meals is not the ideal way to lose weight. It will only make you hungry and weak. Distributing your calories carefully throughout the day will help with weight loss. Have a hearty breakfast, eat proper meals and keep dinner light. In between, you should also add two snacks.
Cut down on animal proteins because they are full of fat and calories. When you’re trying to lose weight, it’s best to rely on plant-based proteins. They have the right amount of nutrition and are low in fat and calories.
Eat green vegetables and fruits. Including colorful fiber and nutrients in your diet will help your weight loss process. Vegetables and fruits are extremely low in calories but packed with nutrients. They will not only keep you full but will also boost your metabolism.
Pay attention to your water intake, especially during winters when people are not really thirsty during cold weather. Not drinking enough water can lead to water retention, headaches and dehydration.
Going to the gym, running, doing cardio exercises or doing yoga is equally important to control weight gain after COVID recovery.
