2. Say no to starvation and skipping meals

Say no to starvation and skipping meals

Do you know that starvation and skipping meals lead to weight gain in the long term?

Starvation leads to weight gain and increases the craving sensations as well. You have not given food to your growling and howling stomach at the right time.

After sometime, your stomach becomes greedy and you start having cravings. Now, you tend to choose less nutritious food choices and overeat them.

Along with this, starvation leads to low energy and concentration levels. Practicing skipping will also adversely affect your mood and behaviour.

3. Balance is the key

Balance is the key

How many times have you felt guilty after eating your favourite delicacy? Have you also become a victim of those No carb, no fat diet?

From childhood, we have been studying the significance of a balanced diet. Maintaining balance, eating in moderation, and adding variety are the keys to losing weight in a healthy manner.

Your body needs all the macronutrients and micronutrients to perform daily functions and tasks. By following a crash diet or abandoning any food group, be it carbohydrates or fats you are yourself sending an invitation to deficiencies and diseases.

Thus, you must practice moderation and maintain a balance between healthy food choices and the favourite food choices. Thus, you must not feel guilty after consuming the foods you love as this type of behaviour builds negative association with food.

4. Enjoy The Exercise

Enjoy The Exercise

Physical activity must not be torturing time for you and your body. It must be a fun and fit experience.

Investing your 30 minutes every 5 days a week performing the exercise that you love, be it brisk walking, bhangra or aerobics is more beneficial than forcing your body to move.

Your workout must not be a burden or stressful hour for you.

5. Practise the Mantra of Mindful Eating

Practise the Mantra of Mindful Eating

Do you use mobile phones or watch television while chewing your food? Here is exactly where you are going wrong.

Food is worship. We must eat food with our open senses. Food needs attention, feel the food, smell it, show gratitude.

This will make your connection stronger with your meals. Also, overeating becomes easy while watching the television or scrolling the internet. This can lead to a lot of disorders such as obesity and type two diabetes.

The footnote is that your health maintenance must be your priority even when you are riding in the weight loss roller coaster. Therefore, your weight loss journey needs to be cherished.
