Regaining that Healthy Lifestyle After the Holidays

Posted by Instashopper Davao on


"The truth is, people do tend to abandon healthy habits during the winter," says Dr. Beth Frates, clinical assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Harvard Medical School. Blame the cold weather that keeps you inside and makes you feel sluggish, or the parade of holiday parties. Who wants to stick to a diet or trudge to the gym? Indulging a little too much over the holidays is something most of us often do. Come January, it is now time to regain the fitness ground we have tried so hard to maintain last year. Don’t worry! Instakart, a Davao online grocery and delivery is here to make sure we can help as much as we can. 

Meal Planning is the first step.  Planning your meals ahead of time and sticking to it until the end are two of the things to keep in mind when you want to lose weight. Instakart’s fresh frozen meat, breakfast staples, and healthy snacks are here to make sure you can pull this off. By meal planning, you get to balance out the protein and vitamins you will be needing to nourish your body with. Whether you want to map out your meals for the entire week or start it small like for the next three days alone, the choice is up to you. Your pace, until you get the hang of it. Simply head on to and we’ll deliver it to you in a heartbeat. 

Go grocery shopping. Planning meals, making a list, and grocery shopping for items needed this week (or at least for the next five days) is crucial, because it leaves you no excuse for neglecting your diet. Menus and recipes should focus on whole, unprocessed foods emphasizing vegetables (including starchy ones), fruits, legumes, lean protein, and healthy fat sources such as olive oil, avocado or nuts. Aim for 1200 to 1500 calories per day depending on activity and size. Shop with Instakart Davao and we’ll make sure you’ll have what you need. 

Stay away from the scale. Don't be deterred by the number on the scale after a weekend of heavy meals. Due to bloating and water retention following a slip up, the number on the scale is usually inaccurate and a poor reflection of your body weight. In addition to this, avoid weighing yourself for a few days due to emotional stress that the scale number may cause for some. So focus on what matters the most first- gaining back your confidence. 

Practice mindful eating. There’s so much more to mindful eating than just eating slowly. It also means being aware of the nutritional benefits you’re gaining from your meals and knowing how your body responds to certain foods. For instance, you may find that some vegetables and legumes make you feel energetic, full and satisfied, while others leave you feeling bloated and uncomfortable. Knowing your body’s reaction to specific foods and ingredients will make it easier for you to plan meals with nutrient-dense foods you love. So make sure to have ample supply of healthy snacks to keep you going.
