Here’re 7 Tips To Lose Weight After Christmas Celebrations:
1. Put That Glass Of Hot Chocolate Away
Hot chocolate calls out to us all the time in winter. The velvety, chocolatey drink is one of the best things to have in this season, agreed. But what about the sudden weight gain that has started bothering you? Stay away from hot chocolate and warm up your body with drinks like green tea, spice-infused water and other detox drinks that are warming too. Click here for some of these recipes.
2. Give Alcohol A Break
We celebrated Christmas in high spirits with some heady spirits, and are probably still reeling under its effect. It’s only wise to give up calorie-laden alcohol for some time before we open another bottle to bring in the new year.
3. Tame Your Sweet Tooth
Our sweet tooth is so used to all those cakes, cookies, muffins and other decadent sweet treats we had in past days leading to Christmas. While we never can have enough of all of it, it’s time to give it a break. Swap these sweets with healthier jaggery, dates, honey and sweet fruits like bananas. Pro tip: Make healthier sweets with these natural sweeteners. Try these recipes.
4. Sip On Warm Water
A slightly warm water gives our throat and body instant relief from the biting cold that we are experiencing right now. What’s more? Warm water also helps improve digestion and rev up our metabolism. So fill up your thermos bottle and sip on warm water all day long.
5. Avoid Carbs At Night
