Do you think you should buy the next size jeans for a comfort fit post the pandemic lockdown? You are not alone! This is a common feeling of many across the globe.
The lockdown, thanks to COVID-19 has brought in a new realm of life to people worldwide. When laptops shifted from office desks to homes, new habits like increased snacking and overeating also followed us. Many of us had shifted from our regular fitness routines due to the closure of gyms, experimenting trending food recipes and skipped medical check-ups. These factors in turn contributed to those extra pounds gained during the quarantined period. Studies show that increased levels of stress, anxiety, boredom and more sedentary time also accounted for weight gain during the quarantine periods.
Return to the new normal
Even though second and third waves are underway in some countries, the world has slowly started resuming to the new normal. Weight loss has now become a major concern. We have started trying our fad diets and various exercise regimes compatible with the new lifestyle post COVID-19. People mostly rely on internet for such sessions. However, there is less chance of obtaining the promised results of the so-called exercises and diets, unless you are under the supervision of an experienced dietitian.
Why do you need a dietitian’s support?
Being overweight or obese can land you in various health issues, such as diabetes, high blood pressure cholesterol and heart diseases. A dietitian helps you plan your diet in such a way that it brings all the essential nutrients in the right quantity at the right time. The quantity, quality and timeliness of your eating habits matters in bringing out the results. A majority of the people keeps unrealistic weight goals like they need to have the weight they had 10 years before. But an expert dietitian can support you with setting realistic weight loss objectives.
If you read that whole grain foods like oats can help you in weight loss and you end up preparing oats with more butter or sugar than needed, then the result would be reverse. So a nutritionist or a dietitian is the right person to calculate the correct proportion of calories based on your body mass index and physical as well as medical conditions.
Adopt changes that matters
If you are planning to seek help from a dietitian, then be ready for a change. They will support you with the tips, tricks and tools to sustainably manage your weight. Along with the meal plans, you will have to embrace lifestyle changes that will help you to reach your weight goals. Life style changes includes quitting bad habits that you had been practicing since years, improving the quality of sleep and cultivating new routines that makes you feel good. Practicing meditation and yoga can also bring in the desired solutions to your weight goals.
