Going to the gym and taking care of that extra fat on your body might seem to be hard to get rid off. Especially in the case of people like me, who sit on their desk and write or do something else. ( mostly sitting though)
Your office drawer is filled with chips and munchies that are making you fat, giving you those extra pounds on your belly. It will accumulate and will make you look like a ‘Munshi lala,’ who can not see his feet because of an extra large tummy.
I’m sure you don’t want that. But what if I’ll tell you that you can get fit and get rid of your belly fat even at your work and without going to the gym? Interested? If you are, here are 5 easy ways that’ll help you to lose belly fat at work.
1. Avoid Free Food
Sometimes it’s a birthday at work. Sometimes your boss is too happy and he has ordered dessert (sugary hell) for the staff. Try to avoid food that your colleagues are offering you. They don’t have any bad intention to make you fat but still, those extra calories are going to add up to your weight. So, avoid eating free food.
2. Include protein, good fat, and fiber in your every meal
You spend the entire day at office and eat one of the most important meals of your day at work too. Make lunch yourself and carry food items to work. This way, whenever your colleagues are sharing a choco cookie, you can munch on something healthy. Replace your old munchies with almonds and other nuts or pumpkin seeds.
3. Breakfast is important
You might think skipping breakfast will help you to lose extra fat. But according to Obesity Research, it is concluded that eating breakfast is important if you want to lose weight. If you don’t have enough time to prepare your breakfast, go for the healthy shakes or a smoothie filled with protein.
4. Don’t forget to drink water
In several studies, it was found that drinking water actually helps in losing weight in the case of an overweight dieting person. Keep a water bottle near your desk and take a sip from it throughout the day. Keeping your body hydrated not only makes you lose weight but it also helps you keep better focus at work.
5. Try burst exercise
I know you can’t go to the gym because of your work. But don’t make it another excuse for not being fit. Try burst exercises as they are considered extremely good to burn fat fast, the best part is they don’t require much time or equipment. Start with something easy such as 60 seconds of jumping jacks.
Getting fit and healthy is not that hard, all you have to do is make up your mind and never give up. Making good changes in life is not that easy but they certainly worth it. And trust me, when you shed those extra pounds, you will become more confident about yourself.
