6 WAYS TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT

Home > Kamalaya Collective > 6 Ways to Maintain a Healthy Weight

Why is maintaining a healthy weight important?

There are many benefits to keeping a healthy weight; your organs function more efficiently, your hormones find greater balance, your energy and mood improves, aches and pains reduce. Most importantly, you are reducing your chances of chronic diseases related to being over or underweight.

However, in this day and age, where food is available in abundance, lifestyle choices such as long hours of work and high stress levels can make it very challenging to make healthy daily choices.

 

We can support our body by making small manageable changes in our day-to-day life:

  1. Stay hydrated; lack of hydration can lead to fatigue and overeating as the body is signaling for fluid, but we receive it as a need for food. It is important to sip mineral water through the day rather than drink in large quantities, keeping to room temperature water is also easier on the digestive system.
  2. Be aware of your portion sizes; food is available all around us, so it is easy to overeat.
  3. Chew slowly; it takes the body some time to register that food has arrived. Smelling your food and eating slowly allows your hormones and digestive enzymes to start functioning more efficiently thus allowing us to register satiety.
  4. Eat in a calm state; our digestion functions best when in Parasympathetic Nervous System state, meaning the body is in ‘rest and digest’ not ‘fight or flight’ mode. Deep breathing, gentle walking, eating away from your desk etc. can be very helpful in achieving this state.
  5. Sleep by 10.30pm; your body can heal, balance hormones and weight when you have good quality sleep. This results in less fatigue and healthier food choices.
  6. Exercise; movement is essential to help the body clear toxins, build strength, improve mood, and support weight balance. Exercising minimum 30minutes per day is essential for better health.
