12 LOCKDOWN WEIGHT LOSS TIPS, ALAMIN!

Ang weight loss ay palagi nang isa sa mga “most searched for topics” online. Ngunit simula nang mag-lockdown, ang pagbabawas ng timbang habang nasa loob ng bahay ay nagiging online trending topic na marahil na rin siguro karamihan sa atin ay mas nag-gain ng weight dahil sa bagong lifestyle. Ang good news ay hindi naman dapat maging mahirap ang paglo-lose ng weight habang nasa bahay lang. Kaya naman ibibigay namin sa inyo ang 12 madadali ngunit epektibong tips sa pagbabawas ng timbang ngayong lockdown.

1. WATER

Drink lots of it before meals & between meals. Dehydration often masks itself as hunger.

2. EAT YOUR CALORIES

Don’t drink them, except for healthy smoothies. No sodas (even diet) or most juices. Eat your fruit when possible, the extra fiber helps you feel full.

3. USE SMALLER PLATES

And a bigger spoon or fork. Trick your body into thinking you are eating more food, if you see a plate filled with food, your brain thinks “Wow I just ate a whole plate of food.”

4. PILE UP YOUR FOOD

Heap your food into a tall pile, same philosophy as above, a tall pile of veggies looks much bigger.

5. VEGGIES FIRST

Put your vegetables on your plate first, they should cover about half of it.

6. MAKE IT LOOK BIGGER

If you eat half a chicken breast and save half for another meal, cut it the long way so it looks bigger.

7. SPICE IT UP!

Spicy food fools your taste buds into being more satisfied with smaller amounts.

TIP: Sprinkle popcorn with a spicy pepper blend, delicious!

8. NO FAD DIETS

Starvation mode freaks your body out so that it holds onto every fat cell for dear life, in case you need it later.

9. LOVE YOURSELF

If you don’t love yourself heavy, you won’t love yourself skinny either, it’s not a magic fix-all for problems, you did not get heavy overnight and you will not lose it overnight either.

10. CHANGE YOUR LIFE

There is no magic cure, the ONLY way to lose weight & keep it off is to consistently burn more calories than you take in. It’s a life change, not a 2 week change.

11. MAKE IT A MANTRA

“Today I will eat food that nourishes my body and makes me feel good. I will do some gentle exercise to stretch my muscles, because I deserve the best I can do for myself.”

12. KEEP TRACK OF INCHES

When you think you have hit a plateau in weight loss, it’s your body exchanging fat for muscle. Muscle tissue is half the size of fat and burns calories more efficiently.

There you go! So stay safe, stay healthy but stay fit as well, mga beshywaps!
