Gaining weight in the winter is not a myth. Who could resist curling up on a cold night with a bowl of hot, steamy food? It has been proven that we do eat more during the winter. And what’s worse, cold-weather cravings usually come in the form of evil carbohydrates like pastries, pasta and biscuits. If you gained a few extra pounds over this cold season, fret not; we have 5 easy remedies for you to lose winter fat, just in time for Spring.
- Drink water (lots of them).
Yes, you may have heard of it a thousand times. But it’s that simple. Our body often mistake dehydration for hunger. By drinking more water it would take away snack cravings. Drinking water also helps to eliminate the toxins in our bodies, making it easier for you to lose weight.
2. Small meals throughout the day
Don’t skip meals as it would slow down metabolism making it difficult to lose weight. Instead, take many small meals throughout the day. According to nutritionist Antony Haynes, our bodies were designed to graze instead of taking big meals, as large meals will stress out our digestive systems. We recommend eating every 3 hours and taking 6 meals per day. Try to stick to whole foods instead of over-processed foods.
3. Keep calm and carry on walking
Walk like you are about to miss your flight, or you are in a hurry to get on the next tube. Fast-paced walking is an extremely effective weight-loss method. Power walking is not only easy on the joints, but is also good for losing deep abdominal fat. If you do not have the time to do a 30 minutes power walk everyday, just walk really fast to the tube station every morning. Your boss might even praise you for getting in early every morning.
