Ask us Pakistani people, gaining weight is a piece of cake for us. Some of it is due to our beautiful genes and most of it is because of us. We are careless people when it comes to self-care (self-care doesn’t only mean putting on make-up), we make mistakes that make the train of healthy body derail from the track a to b. At Nutright, we can help manage this problem and tell you what you need to know about your body and its care. So below is a little lesson in biology 101, to tell you what it is you might be doing wrong and why you shouldn’t.
You Sleep Too Less Or Too Much
Remember that every single weekend that your amma yelled “sou sou k marjao ge”? She wasn’t kidding, sleep can kill but while you are alive and functioning, unhealthy sleeping can affect your body. The body does indeed need sleep but less or too much can drastically alter the way the body functions; your body might just start making fat instead of energy when most of the day you’re dead on your bed.
You Drink Water At The End Of Your Meal
As kids we were told not to drink water again and again during our meal, but what we weren’t told is that drinking water at the end of our meal will make us fat. You’ll look like a pregnant woman even if you are a man, why? Because that last glass of water makes the food inside you fluffy and will slow down the process of digestion and you will have a bloated belly, which just looks plain weird. Ever seen the Pakistani police?
You Eat Way Too Much Sugar
Sugar is not the body’s best friend, hell it ain’t even a friend; its merely an acquaintance and that is how it should be but we love doing what we aren’t supposed to, don’t we? A chocolate a day or even a few chotu gulaab jamun won’t kill us right? WRONG. This everyday dose of sugar kills the body little by little. Our body is designed to process nutrients at its own time and pace, if we keep giving it the same thing continuously it won’t be able to process all but only a small portion of it as a result the unprocessed portion will get stored as fat.
You Skip Meals
One of the biggest mistake that we make is that we think that if we eat less we won’t get fat, when that is wrong. Eating less than the required calories increases body weight and skipping meals disturbs the body’s natural cycle of food processing. The enzymes get lazy, hormones go out of whack and the body just swells up like a slowly inflating ChenOne ka naya takia. The takia becomes soft and fluffy while we become fat and blobby.
You Eat Big Meals
Portion sizing is very important when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight. That doesn’t mean that you measure every inch of everything you eat but only manage the size of the portion you are consuming. Eating a lot at one time and then skipping meals because you really can’t have another bite because if you do you’ll stop breathing because you didn’t leave any room even for air the last time you ate and now the body can’t process all of it so either you now have stored fat or constipation. Eating several but small meals prevents this problem from arising.
