I believe everyone has their own body goal. The question is how do you begin with? Now that we have celebrated Raya and have already emptied every pack of lemang, ketupat, and nasi impit there is, it is time to burn all those calories and get back to our ideal shape. That ideal weight when you were fasting during Ramadan? We are going to hit that number back. Let us tell you some habits you can do at home!
As cliché as it sounds, exercise is a must to be included in the routine. Granted, we are not allowed to go out as much now, but you can always do some easy home exercises. Just spend at least 30 minutes minimum a day and you are on your way to losing some kilograms.
2. Cut sugar
It is very hard, indeed but try to reduce it first as a beginner. Work out some ground rules. Do you need to have dessert every day? How about only having dessert after your evening meal, or only eating dessert on odd days of the month, or only on weekends, or only at restaurants? You can replace dessert with fruits as it has fructose – natural sugar in fruits.
3. Intermittent fasting
Many diets focus on what to eat, but intermittent fasting is all about when you eat. With intermittent fasting, you only eat during a specific time. Fasting for a certain number of hours each day or eating just one meal a couple days a week, can help your body burn fat. And scientific evidence points to some health benefits, as well.
