Check out the Do’s & Dont’s while Partying!
Partying, binge drinking and unhealthy eating go hand in hand. Often post-partying we all realise how unhealthy the past few days have been and want a solution to this. Well we at AAW also binged but instead of crash dieting we asked the experts to help us deal with party season and the subsequent weight gain:
According to you, what are the do’s and don’t to be followed while partying?
Partying definitely means a lot of drinking and eating. Unfortunately, the eating is mostly in the wrong direction, it has been seen that most people tend to overeat during the festive season and that too wrong food. We are nowhere saying that don’t eat during the celebrations but do keep the calories in mind before putting anything in your mouth. The do’s to be followed such as start your day with lime and honey. Before going out with friends or visiting relatives, ensure that your stomach is ample so that you don’t tend to overeat sugary goodies. Also, keep drinking loads of water as many times alcohol might result in dehydration.
What exercises should one do in order to get in shape after week-long partying?
After a week-long partying, chances are that you might have skipped the gym. Start with cardio, don’t be harsh on your body, take a step at a time, and spend 30-45 mins on cardio. This will help you in rebuilding stamina and then go for weight training. Generally, the fat has a tendency to collect near the stomach, so doing some abs would fit the purpose.
What should people do in order to ensure their body maintains the right amount of nutrients?
Drinking a lot of water is important as it will help in flushing out toxins. Make it a point to eat nuts and fruits daily. Eating curd or buttermilk, will cleanse your system from the inside and also will cut down on indigestion. We don’t recommend at any point in time to forego food completely, as this will increase the food craving and will lead to more problems. Indian food is highly nutritious, so if you are game for it then eat khichdi and a lot of salad. At the night have soup and salad. This will help in increasing the metabolism and getting the internal system back on track.
What should an ideal diet contain after partying?
Overeating can be equally toxic. For the most part, binging simply leads to feeling bloated and uncomfortable and maybe triggers heartburn and nausea. After partying go slow for a while, try to cut out on alcohol completely or to a substantial level, and eat lots of fibre, so what is suggested is to increase the intake of fruits and vegetables, cut down on nighttime snacks or any other unhealthy snacks.
