8 Tips To Beat The Monsoon Weight

Don’t we all wish we could hibernate during the rain and wake up skinny AF during the winter? Check out our tips on how to lose weight during the rainy season.

Working out is what keeps your endorphins free-flowing. It’s the simplest way to kick off those blues and love your body back, with all the hard work you’ve been putting in – Don’t let it rain on your parade.

8 Best Weight Loss Tips In Monsoon Season

1. Drink up

A lack of hydration causes water retention, giving your skin a puffy look. Sip on at least 6-8 glasses of water a day to reduce this bloating, and add definition to your body. For those who do not like drinking water, rad-ify it by adding a slice of lemon or cucumber to the water to give it a natural flavour.

2. Cut down on carbs

We love our grains too, but it’s only temporary. When your body can’t rely on carbohydrates for energy, that’s when it will start to burn fat. Stick to a low carb diet and add lean protein like chicken, fish, legumes, eggs, vegetables, and have six small meals a day. This low-carb diet will help you get shredded and is a great answer to that question relating to the mysteries of digestion. You can also try different types of diets, like the Dash diet for the intermittent fasting diet plan.

3. Sleep off the weight

A speedy metabolism is needed to keep that weight off. Getting at least 7-9 hours of shut-eye can help this along. Your body recuperates during sleep, and this ensures food is processed as quickly and efficiently as possible.

4. Squat It

Start in a squat with the chair a couple of feet to your left, with your hands in a prayer position. Hinge your hips back and your torso forward from the hips. Extend your arms overhead so that your ears are in line with your biceps. Pulse your arms, making small up and down movements. Do 20-30 pulses. Sculpt that booty.

5. Tuck in your Tummy

Abs, all day, every day. Start with push-ups, planks, and sit-ups. The basics always work. And the best part? You can do this at home. You can also check out our article on the best meditation movements to stay fit.

6. Interval Training

A mix of cardio and body weight is always a good idea to gain muscle and lose fat, helping you tone up. Bringing your heart rate up and down helps burn more calories, without that much effort. Start with some indoor burpees followed by wide squats for 1 minute each, and then take a 30-second break. Repeat this six times and continue with different combinations.

7. Eat right

If you want to keep the monsoon weight off, start cutting down on junk food. Eat extra helpings of green, leafy vegetables (make sure these are washed and cleaned properly) and good quality lean protein. Antioxidant juices can also help reduce bloating, so try swapping your usual afternoon cup of coffee for a healthy green tea or a berry-rich bottle of our favourite juice. Magnesium, found in spinach, bananas, nuts, seeds, fish, and whole grains, will also help you achieve a flatter stomach and shredded abs.

8. Go on a Juice Cleanse

A juice cleanse or liquid diet at intervals is always an excellent way to get rid of toxins in your body. You could do a one, two or three-day juice cleanse and reap the results. You don’t have to disrupt your fitness routine because of the downpour. You can easily continue on your healthy path with these tips, and keep #Slaying.
