The only holiday gift that you must return is the weight that you pile on. An extra serving of mashed potatoes, a silver of rich chocolate mousse, and a tall glass of ice-tea is enough to cause damage to our weight reduction schedule. We always pay the price for our dietary indulgences. Most of the weight gain starts for us starts from Durga Puja to New Year’s Eve.
Sweets are a biggest killer when it comes to weight gain. After you are through with your indulgences and pampering with food after the festive season eliminate desserts that are rich is sugar and fat from your diet for at least three days- seven to ten days will be even better. This will help to curb your cravings while you start to re-establish a taste for naturally sweet foods, such as fruits and starchy vegetables.
Cut down on cocktails. So you have gulped down too many mojitos. The problem is not just the alcohol and the fat. The alcohol itself packs in seven calories per gram. And the funniest part is that the stomach and brain does not register liquid calories in the same way as solids, so it is easy to go right on eating and drinking without compensating for added calories.
Satisfying low calorie beverages can boost metabolism and even temper your hunger. When it comes to tea omit the creamy milk and sugar and it becomes zero calories and it also lifts your metabolic rate. Drink as much water as you can. It will make you feel full. Add sliced lemon, oranges or some mint leaves to a pitcher of water. They are refreshing and gives you healing anti-oxidants.
