Stress and weight gain

Stress and weight gain, or lack of weight loss go hand in hand. You will not realize and you will gain many kgs. Stress has a very bad effect on our body and mind which we get to understand mostly very late.

Being under constant stress has the following consequences:

  • Like sleep deprivation, too much stress increases the production of cortisol. Not only does this increase appetite, it can also cause extra fat storage around the abs.
  • Cravings for foods that are high in sugar and fat, comfort foods to make us feel better. We end up consuming more calories than required.
  • Skipping workouts because you just feel too stressed out to exercise.
  • Not taking care of self. We end up ignoring our own body, mind and relationship.

Dealing with stress

  • Work on staying calm – We often try to fix the problem with food or alcohol. Which might not be the solution but instead of this if we stay calm and focus on finding the right way or talk to the right person we may find a solution. Anxiety is not going to solve the problem.
  • Meditation – Believe it or not but meditation is a very powerful medicine and it will surely cure the stress and tension.
  • Exercise – You may feel like exercise is the last thing you want to do, but it can give you instant stress relief. Even just a walk outside can reduce stress and tension.
  • Breathe – Calming down doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Just closing your eyes and taking a deep breath will instantly calm you.
  • Yoga – Yoga is a great medicine for stress and very helpful in the weight loss. I have lost around 26 kgs post pregnancy weight just by performing yoga and mat exercises at home.
  • Running – Yes, running is very helpful in controlling the stress and your weight too.

Weight Loss: Daliya a superfood!

Note:: Daliya is called brokenwheat in english. Its safe to be consumed during breastfeeding and helps in getting back to shape. 

  1. Low in calorie
    • Daliya is a wholewheat product which enhances metabolism rate. One serving contains very little calories. This means that you are adding very little to your total calorie count.
  2. High in fibre
    • Fibre aids in digestion and ensures that your body functions optimally and stays in good health. Fibre in your food cannot be converted to sugar, and therefore eating Dalia for weight loss makes a lot of sense.
  3. Slow to process
    • Foods which process quickly make you hungry faster and causes more sugar to be stored in the body. One of the benefits of Dalia for weight loss is that the body breaks it down and absorbs it slowly.
  4. Low glycemic index
    • A glycemic index measures how much sugar is converted from any particular food. The higher the index, the more the sugar. Low glycemic index foods are the best for someone seeking to lose weight, and that is why you must try Dalia for weight loss. It is absorbed slowly and helps to balance blood sugar in your body.
  5. High in protein
    • Dalia is an excellent source of protein. The real benefit of Dalia for weight loss is that it gives you a high protein diet, but unlike meat, it does not contain fats. It is therefore a safe, fat-free source of protein and must be included in your diet.
  6. Filling
    • Its high fibre content and slow absorption, leave you feeling full. You will also need to consume a much smaller portion because you will be full and prevents hunger pangs!
Kareena Kapoor, post pregnancy, weight loss

Celebrates and their weight loss!

Sounds interesting that a bollywood star lost so much of weight and that too so fast and you after trying so hard had not lost a single kg. Hold on, don’t go by what you hear and what they do.

A friend of mine wanted to loose all her pregnancy weight just like Kareena Kapoor and because she was unable she went through tough mind situations.

Have you ever thought how many helps they have? There are so many people present just to help them to be in a shape they are. We don’t have that privilege so instead of doing as quick as them you can go slow and be kind to yourself.

Secondly they are in show business they have to look good and be in news. They blame media for interfering in their private life but truth is their own PR agencies call media guys to click them and make them in news. Off course sometimes they too need some privacy.

Instead of following their lifestyle if you follow your passion and build your own lifestyle that will make more sense and value. Don’t be in hurry of loosing your weight or getting back to your shape.

Start small and follow a plan which suits you. Consult your doctor if required. It will take time but this will make you strong.

How do I #getbacktoshape post pregnancy!

I lost some ten kgs in about 3 months just by following few diet tips and floor exercises at home. Being a mom it’s often tough to do things for self and leave your baby and go to gym unless you have a very strong support system. Unfortunately I have no support system which will allow me to leave my baby and get out to the gym, so I started doing my own exercises and managing my diet.

Five point which will help you in weight loss:

  • Drink water not caffeine.
  • Drink your food, yes I said it right. When you add extra water to your soup or milk it will not only full your stomach but will help you in not taking those extra calories.
  • Eat a good breakfast. Eating what you like in your breakfast will make your day energetic and full of happiness but if possible avoid oily and sugary stuff.
  • Do some 30-40 mins of floor exercise at home and get out with your baby for morning and evening walk.
  • Do your dinner before sunset. Yes and it helps a lot to get #backtoshape.

Follow this routine for about a month and then increase your exercise time slowly.
