5. Superfoods to the Rescue

6. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Water makes up 70% of the body and is thus essential for normal functioning. The general rule used to be 2 liters of water a day. But that’s changed depending on your size, weight and activity level.
Use this simple calculation:
Your Weight (kg) multiplied by 0.03 = Water (liters) to drink a day
For example, if you are 60kg, you should drink about 2 liters or water.
Tip: Add apple cider vinegar and chia seed to your plain water to promote even more weight loss.
7. Work Up a Sweat
Other than nourishing our body, we gotta move our body too to aid digestion and burn stubborn calories. One of the best ways to sweat out is through strength training.
If you don’t have time for the gym, simply slot in physical activities such as taking stairs, walking during lunch to a restaurant from the office, etc. Every move counts.
Don’t Give Up, You Can Do It
Enjoy the scrumptious holiday grub, but stay proactive during the festive season and be prepared to get back on the right track.
