Posted by on April 9, 2020 in Health with 0 Comments

It is no surprise that staying at a home for a month will badly affect our physical health, not to mention that without work, the only thing we are prone to do is to eat and sleep.

With such a routine, there is bound to be some weight gain. So, how can we stay healthy in such a time?

It is quite simple, with just a few changes in our daily diet and lifestyle, we can greatly control our weight and stay healthy. We are not talking about excessive workouts or complete diet changes that might scare you off.

With these 5 simple tips, you will see the results within a month and also have a healthier lifestyle and stay in your home. Let’s get started!

1. Limit Carbohydrate Intake

This is an old one and it is highlighted in every healthy body weight regimen. Why such importance on calories though? Carbohydrates are the main source of fat for your body, they help you increase body weight and thus this is the first thing you need to maintain or cut down. To do that, you need to eat fewer calories than you burn or do vigorous exercise. Either way, it is necessary that your calorie intake is cut down by 1250 calories per day. This might seem a lot, but not impossible.

One easy way to cut down on carbs is by reducing your plate size, this is quite effective as we tend to fill up our plates to the top, by using a smaller size, we will fill up a much smaller portion. You can also try to remove sweets, dairy, soft drinks, and candies from your diet as a way to start.

2. Eat High Nutritional Value Food

When we are cutting down on carbohydrates to maintain ideal body weight, we have to incorporate highly nutritious food into our diet. This is important as carbs are an essential reason for producing energy in our body and by cutting down on it, we can feel lazy and not energized. To maintain a good and healthy physique, nutritious foods are necessary.

These foods help in filling up your appetite and don’t add calories as well. Isn’t it great? Such foods include kale, fish, vegetables, avocado, fruits like blueberries, potato, sardines and much more. This food helps in slow digestion so you feel full for a long time and also stay healthy.

3. Keep Your Diet Healthy

When we are changing our diet, we believe that taking out one component from our food group will help us achieve the goal easily. That is where we are wrong. By entirely leaving out carbohydrates or fats from our diet, we are damaging our body and making ourselves unhealthy. This is not the correct way to go on a diet and does more damage than good.

The 3 essential macro food groups that should be included in every diet or meal plan is a carbohydrate, protein, and fat. There are many diet plans available, each with varying amounts for the 3-macro food group. Such a keto diet allows 60% fat, 35% protein, and 5% carbs. Whereas, normally a healthy diet contains Carbohydrates: 45–65% of calories, Fat: 20–35% of calories, Protein: 10–35% of calories.

All of them work towards a similar goal, losing weight in a healthy manner. Thus, it is up to you to choose one which suits you best and one which you can maintain for a month or longer.

4. Increase Your Daily Fiber Intake

When we talk about important meals that we should add to our daily diet to achieve our ideal weight goal, another essential food group is fiber. Fibers are a great way to stay healthy and not add additional calories to your diet. 30 g of fiber per day can help keep your body engaged and don’t increase weight as well.

Fibers are not easily digested by the body, meaning you will feel full for a longer time and it is good for your health too. Fibers can be taken from legumes, whole grain, and greens.

5. Work Out

One of the most obvious things you can do to maintain a healthy diet and physique is by working out every day or every morning.

Research says that working out in the morning helps you reduce weight faster than a workout at any other time. The main reason for this is because your body utilizes the energy from the reserves in your body, which helps cut down your body weight easily and maintain an ideal weight goal. We are not talking about the excessive workout, even a 5-minute workout will do the trick if you are doing it right.

By following these 5 simple tips, you can achieve your goal and stay healthy during the quarantine.
