Weight Loss in Monsoon!!

Weight Loss in Monsoon!!
After the long, hot summer months, the monsoon rains bring much needed relief from the heat. The rains, which are a welcome change, can spell the end for outdoor exercises for all health enthusiasts. The rains also tend to bring to the table steaming teas along with hot ‘pakoras’.
Here are some tips to help you continue your weight loss journey:
 
Exercise:
•Outsmart the rains and join a gym/aerobics/yoga/dance class. Since these are conducted indoors, the rains are highly unlikely to hamper your fitness plans!
•If joining a gym/exercise class or buying exercise equipment isn’t too friendly on your pocket-then pick up some exercise DVD’s or surf the internet for exercises that you can do at home.
•Keep yourself active-take the stairs whenever possible, jog inside the house, do simple home exercises.
 
Doing this will keep your metabolism from slowing down.
 
Diet:
•Avoid binging on fried foods (pakoras, chips, namkeens, samosas,etc) as far as possible. Moderation is the key word here.
•Snack on the grilled buttas/makkai/corn that seem to pop up everywhere with the rains. Nothing smells better than corn being roasted over hot coals on a rainy day, besides the fiber makes it an excellent healthy snack.
•Eat light meals and keep yourself hydrated by drinking loads of water.
 
Just keep in mind that the monsoon season is no excuse for NOT exercising.
