“Arey beta do exercise if you want to lose weight”…eat healthy food! Everybody out there will tell you what to do to lose some weight. And you my dear friend will do all they say to lose some inches..and look prettier . But there are some things you should NOT do when you are on a weight loss journey. When trying to lose weight, the don’ts are equally, if not more important than the do’s. So here they are:
Exercise is not a chore
If you think of exercise as something you have to drag yourself to do every day, then you are not going to be able to do it enthusiasm, and energy that you will need for the session to be productive. So instead of dragging yourself to the gym you could go for Boot Camp or Power Yoga etc.
The same workout for 365 days
Doing the same workout day in and day out leads to boredom and fatigue. There will come a time when you won’t want to look at that treadmill anymore or only the strongest willpower will make you will yourself to go for your workout. Also, particularly where weight loss is concerned, you need to shock your body and do different workouts to ensure that your body uses its maximum potential to perform.
Do Not skip your Meals–
Skipping meals leads to binge eating, you may be able to sustain it for a short while but eventually your willpower will give way to pure and natural hunger. Therefore carry nuts or other healthy snacks to keep eating and make sure you eat nutritious filling meals and Don’t starve.
No heavy food for Dinner-
In the night, try and keep it light. Chicken, soup, and a nice big salad should be your ideal meal. Many people come home from work starved and hence eat a hefty meal piling on chapatti after chapatti, but this isn’t the way to go if you want to lose weight
