Weight Control

It is hard to resist those delicious CNY goodies all around us. What can you do to maintain healthy weight or even to lose some weight after a period of feasting/overeating? There are several strategies you can follow through in the next few weeks:

  1. Get back to your regular healthy eating habits or start a new healthy eating habit (if you have not got one). A healthy eating habit could be as easy as having a clean, wholesome, nutrient-rich breakfast to start the day right with all the nutrients your body needs in the right proportions.  A healthy breakfast jumpstarts your metabolism and, thus, helps you burn more calories throughout the day. Avoid sugar-laden, or high-sodium, nutrient-poor breakfast foods that are so prevalent when you eat out in Singapore. Go for well-balanced, low-sugar, low-sodium, high-fiber breakfast choices – we recommend our clean, quick-n-easy whole-grain breakfast cereals which are convenient, nutritious choices for the health-conscious.  If you love to snack, start snacking smart (in moderation of course!) by stocking up wholesome yet delicious, high-fiber snack choices such whole fruits, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, low-sugar protein bars.
  2. Increase your physical activity: This helps boost your metabolism and burn more calories. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise, such as brisk walking or cycling, most days of the week. Be aware of what you eat after a workout so that you do not gain more weight due to an increased appetite after workouts. We recommend clean protein powders which will provide good post-exercise nutrition and increase satiety after workout.
  3. Drink more water: Staying hydrated can help control hunger and reduce the temptation to overeat. Aim for at least 8 cups of water per day. Bored with just drinking water? Try drinking antioxidant-rich Matcha tea which helps you detox, boosts metabolism, and is almost calorie-free.
  4. Get enough sleep: Having adequate sleep helps you have better control over your appetite and cravings. Sleep-deprived adults tend to eat more during the day. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
  5. Reduce stress: Stress can lead to overeating, so try to find healthy ways to manage stress, such as meditation, exercise or talk to someone!
  6. Practice mindfulness: Pay attention to your body’s signals of hunger and fullness, and eat slowly, savoring each bite.

It is important to note that weight loss is not a quick fix- it takes time, determination and consistency to achieve positive results. Be patient with yourself and be kind to your body.
