The coronavirus pandemic has really got us all locked down in our houses and spend all the time at home. While it could work okay for some who are really focused on their health and fitness, this time could actually make your weight go for a toss. So if you're someone who wishes to watch your weight and doesn't want this self isolation time add some extra kilos to you, we've got you some diet tips that can help.
- Drop them snacks: Snacking can be nutritious for active people. But if you're someone who snacks on food in between meals especially to kill some time, then you're doing everything wrong. Follow a three-meal-per-day routine without adding any snacks that will in turn help you prevent weight gain over the next few weeks.
- Lighten your favourite recipes: Quarantining at home can give you a lot of time for cooking, which works well as long as you're cooking health meals for yourself. The only issue is when you get a little heavy-handed with home cooked meals which are in fact calorie-dense. You need to lighten your recipes and watch your calorie intake in order to watch your weight.
- Embrace herbal tea: This is the time to make some time for that herbal tea. Drop your beverages and pick a cup full of herbal tea instead. It's low in calories and packed with various antioxidants and health benefits too.
- Keep food out of sight: Now, you can either choose to have you eyes on food and munch on possibly everything which ultimately adds more weight on you, or you can keep the food out of your sight and only eat when it's meal time for you so that you can have some control over your weight.
