Wedding season is here, and everyone’s getting ready for the food and the parties. Your workout routine is going for a toss, and the sight of mouth-watering food makes you forget about your diet. Right? Eating right is all about making the right choices and adjusting to the occasion. Here are some strategies you can follow to stay on track.
1) Eat around your maintenance calories
This gives you a bigger room to include food items in your diet and enjoy the wedding. Maintaining your progress is also progress.
2) Try limiting your eating window
This will save some calories for the later part of the day. Do it only if you are comfortable skipping your breakfast. In some cases, it may lead to overeating. Prioritize water intake.
3) Avoid liquid calories
Liquid items are less satiating and provide a lot of calories. However, in no time, you will be hungry again.
4) Be mindful about your food choices
Just because it’s wedding season doesn’t mean you go overboard. Not tracking your food and a little bit of indulgence is fine, but ensure healthier choices and practice portion control.
5) Stay more active
Continue with your workouts. Try to remain even more active. Help your family in house cleaning, shopping, and preparations.
6) Avoid hoarding sweets at home
If you can’t resist sweets, avoid bringing them home. If that’s not possible, try having a limited variety.
7) Calorie Management
After wedding season, you can reduce your calories a bit but ensure that you are not eating way too little in the upcoming days to equate calories. A slightly more deficit can be created from your fats and carbs.
8) Enjoy your festival
Eating mindlessly for a day or two might not hamper your progress, but it can have after-effects. So it’s important to make better choices while enjoying the festival and get back on track the next day.
