How to Maintain Your Weight in the Office – Things to do During Work
When you’re working in the office, it’s inevitable for you to gain weight. Even the skinniest of all people in college may suddenly gain 10 pounds in a few months. This is because, they’re stuck sitting down almost the whole day, staring at their computer.
With all the time you spend in the office, it’s obvious why employees are not able to gain the exercise they need. Unlike when they were still in college, they get to walk at least 10,000 steps. If you’re comfortable with working without moving, you should reverse your way of thinking. This is a very unhealthy lifestyle and it can cause you more than just weight gain.
For us Filipinos, gaining weight is a nightmare. This is especially true for women, who have been petite all their lives. Although it’s okay to gain a few pounds, keeping this up without any exercise is definitely wrong. Even with your limited time to exercise, there are some things you can do to compromise. Here are some useful work tips for the weight conscious individuals.
- Easy on the carbs. Because you’re indoors, sitting down most of the time, you won’t be able to burn all the fat. Lessen your intake and eating carbs won’t be such a nightmare.
- Drink lots of water. Did you know that drinking 8-10 glasses of water can regulate weight? Sure, it can cause you to run back and forth to the rest room but this habit is healthy. Make it yours.
- Eat less during dinner. When you go home, you’re definitely tired and hungry. Easy on the dinner. If you eat too much and aren’t able to burn the calories (because you’re in the office), you’ll definitely gain weight rapidly.
- Take the chance to exercise. Filipinos are lazy to exercise but that doesn’t mean that all hope is lost. One can do some walking. Instead of riding a jeep or cab to a certain destination, just walk. You may also use the stairs instead of the elevator. This can definitely do wonders for your weight maintenance.
