1. Practice eating mindfully
Don’t drink your calories! Minimize your consumption of soft drinks and beer as they contain tons of empty calories. Graciously ask your host instead for water or tea.
In fact, all that junk food has probably made your body very “heaty”. Barley, wheatgrass, peppermint tea – take these to cool down your body and get rid of unwanted effects like breakouts and sore throats.
4. Trigger Foods
Identify trigger foods. Generally, we all have some foods that are our absolute weakness. What is it for you? Bak Kwa? Keropok Udang? Fried Shrimp Rolls? Find out, and try staying away from them for the most part so you don’t go on a roll and binge excessively.
Enjoy everything in moderation. After all it is Chinese New Year. Nobody is asking you to limit yourself completely. All in all, it is perfectly fine to have a little snack here and there. Just do it in moderation, and your waistline will thank you.
A popular snack, a slice of Bak Kwa has approximately 229 calories and 8g of fat.
Has your waistline expanded? Also, has the number on the scale gone up? There is no easy way around it. Furthermore, after sitting in air conditioned rooms for the past few days, your body is probably in need of a dire sweat to flush out toxins.
Unfortunately, the excess calories have to be worked off. Squeeze in a short HIIT session! It only takes about 20 minutes, and will help torch those excess calories.
Or go for a brisk walk outdoors. Try a sauna even!
Saunas are great for detoxing and reducing water retention. Just make sure to stay hydrated before and after.
And no we aren’t talking about beer and soft drinks. Chug down lots and lots of tea and water because it will flush out all the excess sodium in your system. It will also help with your bloatedness and water retention.
