Include Seasonal Fruits in Your Monsoon Diet

Seasonal fruits like litchis, cherries, apples and peaches are healthy foods to help you lose weight. These foods also help in boosting your immunity levels. Litchis contain polyphenols rich in anti-influenza and anti-oxidant properties making them perfect during monsoons. While apples are rich in fiber and phytonutrients, peaches are packed with vitamins like A and C. Both these low-calorie fruits help improve your skin while improving your immunity. As a result of these benefits, fruits are considered to be the best diet food for weight loss. [1]

Keep Yourself Hydrated By Increasing Your Liquid Intake

The key factor to consider when choosing the best diet to lose fat is to drink plenty of water. Drink a minimum of 6-8 glasses of water on a daily basis. Apart from aiding in digestion, water helps in eliminating harmful toxins from the body, which is more important during the rainy season. If your body doesn’t get enough water, it can cause stomach bloating and tiredness in the skin. Consider having ginger tea as well since ginger soothes your throat and boosts your immunity apart from helping you shed some kilos. [2]

Minimizing Carb Intake Is One of the Effective Ways to Lose Weight

One of the most effective weight loss tips is to follow a low-carb diet. A reduced intake of carbs will result in the body burning stored fats, thereby helping in weight loss. The best meal for weight loss would be to cut down 3 large meals into 6 smaller ones. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, you need to consume carbs between 900 and 1300 calories per day if your total calorie intake for a day is 2000 calories. The best fat loss food for a low-carb diet include lean protein sources like fish, chicken and non-starchy vegetables. [3]

Consume Vegetables and Legumes for Increasing Immunity

Adding vegetables and legumes in your diet is an effective and healthy approach to lose weight. Vegetables supply the body with essential minerals and fibers while ensuring low calorie consumption. The water and fiber content in vegetables will also keep you full for a long period. Vegetables like bitter gourd can help your body fight against infections. Similarly, consuming legumes like chickpeas also helps in weight management. The protein and fiber content of legumes keeps you satiated for a longer time thereby helping you to lose extra kilos. [4,5]

Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Gut in Monsoons

Observing a few simple tips will also ensure you maintain a healthy gut during the rains, preventing heartburn and constipation as well as bloating. Gut health also helps guard against fungi, virus and bacteria that cause havoc in this season. Rather than eating deep fried food in monsoon season, no matter how tempting, try to consume easily digestible foods consisting of fruits and vegetables for gut health. These also double up as healthy foods to help lose weight!

Using mustard or peanut oil is a big no during monsoons as these tend to generate more body heat thereby affecting digestion. Instead, switch to easily digestible oils like sunflower or olive oil. Dals, nuts and seeds provide fiber and protein that also serve your gut. Lastly, one of the simplest ways to boost the function of the gastrointestinal tract during the rains is to wash your hands frequently as unclean hands are the major cause for stomach bugs. [6]

Losing weight requires patience and perseverance no matter whether it is during the rainy season or summer. Along with these diet tips, follow a calorie deficit pattern while you are striving to do so. This results in a sustainable and long-lasting weight loss journey.
