Add The Nuts, Minus The Weight

People are getting more and more conscious of their outward appearance. Everyone is hoarding for a fitter and healthier body. Being overweight has its major implication which leads to obesity, raised cholesterol levels, disturbed diabetes and blood pressure values and other cardiovascular diseases. Other than this, it has deep psychological reactions like depression, low self-esteem and more. Many people set targets to drop those extra pounds, but in most cases ‘tomorrow never comes, which can be a hindrance to weight loss, especially if you have a low metabolism. So to sincerely regulate weight issues we need to opt for something sustainable, maybe by changing our eating habits to begin with. We all love to snack on tasty foodstuff and most of the time we end up eating unhealthy, junk food. How about replacing them with something fibrous, filling, nutritious and yummy at the same time?

Dry Fruits are your go-to answer. They are known as superfoods due to their high nutritive value. Thus when you eat them in place of the regular snacks, you help maintain the metabolism rate which regulates the digestive process, yielding to losing weight. Almonds, Pistachios, Cashews, Dates, Walnuts, Raisins and Figs are some of the dry fruits which are rich in fibre, mono-saturated fats, proteins and antioxidants. Once consumed, they make you feel fuller for a long time, curbing the urge to eat extra. Alongside, they boost stamina which increases energy to work off extra kilos in the gym too.

These nuts and seeds, being dense with magnesium and vitamins increase the metabolic rate thereby releasing toxins from the body, boosting immunity, monitoring bowel movement and improving the process of digestion. Their natural sugar content is low on Glycemic Index (GI) and yet they make the perfect dessert owing to their natural sweetness. Hence, they are the perfect replacement for the unhealthy last course of your meal.

To make the long story short, start including dry fruits in your daily diet to open up your world of health and fitness. Grab a fistful of them before your workouts to improve metabolism, increase stamina and boost energy. Snack on them when you are feeling hungry and do not indulge in unhealthy food. Got your sweet tooth craving for yummy puddings but cannot afford to indulge in them? Pop in a mixture of the nuts to satiate yourself. Replacing the carbohydrate-laden food with dry fruits is surely going to get you closer to your fitness goal.
