Health & Nutrition - - FITNESS FORUM -

New year par­ties and cel­e­bra­tions have come to a joy­ful con­clu­sion. You re­mem­ber the won­der­ful mo­ments spent amongst loved ones but also cringe over the loads of mithai and sump­tu­ous meals that were gulped down glee­fully. While some may feel guilty about the over in­dul­gence of the past few days, it is now time to leave be­hind those feel­ings while set­ting things right and get­ting back into fit­ness mode, says fit­ness ex­pert Yas­min Karachi­walla.

EASY STRATE­GIES

You don’t have to block 45-60 min­utes to work out. The work­out ses­sions can be bro­ken up into 1015 min­utes ses­sions. You can walk around the street while await­ing your turn at the doc­tor’s ap­point­ment. Sim­i­larly, a house­wife can do push ups while cook­ing. If you are din­ing out dur­ing your lunch hour, walk­ing to the restau­rant is a health­ier op­tion than driv­ing. While watch­ing TV, ditch the re­mote and walk up to the TV to change chan­nels. Dur­ing reg­u­lar walks, add a quick one-minute sprint and see the dif­fer­ence af­ter a few weeks. Lower the in­take of sugar, salt, spicy, pro­cessed and fast foods. Con­sume home-made cooked/ raw foods. Drink lots of wa­ter and fresh juices. Avoid to­bacco, al­co­hol, so­das and other car­bon­ated bev­er­ages.
