Winter means endless get-togethers and parties. It also means a change in your eating pattern and exercise schedule. Between all those Christmas and end-of-year parties, your workout is replaced with festive preparations and an otherwise healthy looking fridge begins bursting with junk. Surviving this social time of the year, without gaining weight or being faced with other health issues, may seem a difficult task, but worry not. Here’s how you can survive this holiday season:

Be food-wise
While at parties, it’s difficult to say no to indulgences, a dip in temperature can also make you feel hungrier than usual. While munching on a few tantalising treats is expected, consuming too many unhealthy options can be problematic. Before leaving for a party, make sure to have a light snack. Once there, try to limit your portion by opting for a smaller plate. Take a walk down the food table or have a look at the menu before serving yourself.

Hydrate, always
For many, no celebration is complete without a cocktail or two. Not only are such drinks packed with calories, but gulping down too many of these can often leave you dehydrated. Additionally, as you sweat less and don’t feel thirsty often during winter, your body may get dehydrated soon. So sip water regularly and drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.

Party healthy
Junk food is that one guest that’s always present at all parties. Apart from the extra calories, eating too much of such foods and that too close to bedtime can cause indigestion and other problems. Ensure that you consume most of your calories before 8 pm and make it a point to eat every three-four hours throughout the day to control your late-night cravings.

Get moving
We all love snuggling under a blanket on cold mornings. It is tough to find the motivation to leave your bed, let alone exercise. Winter-proof your workout by switching to indoor exercises such as jogging in place, crunches, squats, etc. After a quick warm-up session at home, hit the outdoors for some mild exercises such as brisk walking, jogging or cycling. In case you happen to be suffering from constipation, a short brisk walk could help ease things out a bit. Take long strides, with your shoulders back and the arms swinging to get your digestive system back on track.

Include fibre in your diet
Stocking up on comfort foods to keep you warm may often result in fruits and veggies being neglected, resulting in insufficient fibre intake. Include berries, apples, pears, beans, lentils, green leafy vegetables and whole grain in your diet to keep your digestive system in order. Moreover, including enough fibre can help prevent constipation, decrease blood cholesterol levels and also increase satiety to help manage weight.

Say no to constipation
Over-eating, poor hydration and other unhealthy eating habits often cause constipation. If nothing else seems to help, turn to Kayam Churna, a powerful blend of traditional herbs like senna leaves, ajwain, black salt, trivrit, haritaki, yashtimadhu, etc. Not only does it aids digestion, but also provides relief from chronic constipation, acidity and gas.
