Some Vital Tips To Battle The Bulge, Stay Fit And Lead A Healthy Life

These weight loss strategies will help you get back on track and sustain a healthy life

The coronavirus virus lockdown took a toll on our mental as well as physical well-being. The quarantine period was a tough one for people. There is a steep rise in the number of people who have gained oodles of weight during the pandemic, owing to many challenges and disruption in their regular routine.

Long work from home hours contributed to a sedentary lifestyle where people were required to sit for hours without any movement. Furthermore, less sleep, stress, unhealthy diet, and overeating also contributed to weight gain. The fact that gyms were closed didn’t help either. The quarantine period also led to change in mental states that contributed to emotional eating and people struggled to stick to their fitness routine.

There are various reasons behind why people must have piled up those excess kilos during the coronavirus lockdown, say experts. They attribute a sedentary lifestyle, lack of physical activity and movement, faulty eating habits, and stress to be the culprits behind weight gain.

“Weight gain happens when your daily calorie intake surpasses your expenditure. The number of calories consumed during Lockdown on a daily basis was very high. People were not used to consuming food together on a daily basis for such a long period of time. Right from morning teas to evening snacks, breakfast, lunches, dinners, and late-night snacks or desserts all were made and consumed,” explains Dr. Kiran Rukadikar, Founder, DietQueen.

She adds: “Eating is a mood elevator and stress reliever. The more you eat, the happier you become. But this is adding more issues to your health. Now that we are getting control over the pandemic, it’s our own duty to take care of ourselves. As the whole world is getting back to normal, so should you.”
