Since the outbreak of the pandemic, many of us have been in isolation for a long time with lack of exercise, healthy diet and regular schedule. As a result, many of us are experiencing weight gain, which makes us feel even more anxious. Before the pandemic, our social media was dominated by food delicacy and fitness. People found ways to balance the two in order to enjoy high quality of life. Now, during the lockdown, we are even more obsessed with food, but regular fitness is getting harder to maintain. Furthermore, unhealthy weight gain is associated with many chronic diseases, and knowing this fact consequently brings up concerns that contribute to more serious anxiety.
Creating a balanced lifestyle and ensuring intake of daily nutrition needed are the main keys to effective weight management. Please see the list of our suggestions that may help you stay in shape while providing your body with necessary nutrients.
1. Avoid high-sugar diets and consume fiber-rich foods. Vegetables, mushrooms, whole grains, etc. are all masters of eliminating hunger and are also low-calorie with high vitamins and minerals. Foods high in fiber can provide satiety. On the contrary, food high in sugar can stimulate appetite and cause over consumption of junk food.
2. Sufficient intake of high-quality protein. During the pandemic, intake of sufficient nutrients is considered necessary to support our immune system. As protein is the main component for immune cells and antibodies, our immune system will be compromised and our bodies become more susceptible to accumulating fat if deficient. Therefore, consuming high protein food is a must whether the goal is to improve immunity or manage weight. In addition to animal sources such as fish, shrimp, eggs, lean meat, and milk, plants are also good sources for protein such as nuts and legumes.
3. Keep a regular exercise routine. In addition to a healthy diet, we must make a habit of following a regular exercise routine, such as indoor aerobics, yoga, dance, etc. to improve our metabolism and burn fat.
