Embracing Winter in Your Weight Loss Eating Plan

As the winter chill sets in, we often find ourselves reaching for warm, comforting foods and drinks that can derail a healthy weight loss plan. Here are some strategies from Slender Wonder to help you integrate the season into your weight loss eating plan:

Prioritize Cozy Sleep It might seem counterintuitive, but sleep is crucial for weight loss. According to WebMD, sleep is essential to weight loss success. Winter often brings the best sleep, so make sure you’re getting 8 hours of cozy sleep each night to support your weight loss and diet plan.

Avoid Drinking Your Calories Artisanal coffees and hot chocolates are tempting in cold weather, but these can sabotage your weight loss efforts. Opt for warm beverages like herbal teas or hot water with lemon instead, which can aid your weight loss. A cup of rooibos (black) is local, plentiful, affordable, and beneficial.

Choose Warming Soups for Meals When deciding between soup and salad this winter, go for soup—specifically broth-based soups over creamy ones. The high water content in broth-based soups will fill you up and help you feel satisfied for longer, reducing the likelihood of overeating later.

Maintain Your Water Intake Even though you may sweat less in winter, it’s important to keep your water intake high. Exercise will still make you sweat, and staying hydrated is essential for any weight loss plan. Remember, the top medical weight loss tip is to drink plenty of water.

Enjoy South Africa’s Winter Produce Fresh, seasonal produce is a fantastic addition to your weight loss plan. South Africa’s winter produce is abundant, flavorful, and nutritious. Eating in-season fruits and vegetables ensures you’re getting them at their peak flavor and nutrient content. Some excellent winter options include:

  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Celery
  • Celeriac
  • Spinach
  • Cabbage
  • Asparagus
  • Tomatoes
  • Grapefruit
  • Naartjies
  • Oranges
  • Pawpaw
