Every woman craves an hour glass figure. With umpteen foodie temptations and lesser exercise regime due to high flying, busy or stressed out lifestyle leaves many overweight. Here is an array of lifestyle choices that when changed, can help you get into your favourite clothes that once fitted.

There could be nothing better than taking the flight of stairs rather than the lift, a walk to the nearby mode of transport or cycling up to your destination. This will provide medium intensity workout and an ideal way to introduce physical activity in one’s sedentary lifestyle.

Many studies have revealed a close relationship between poor sleep patterns and obesity. Try to get to bed early with at least seven hours of sleep. This will prevent binge eating in many who stay up late at night. Turning down the air cooler also helps in weight reduction. Our body metabolism does not work up that much to burn up calories in cool temperatures maintained by AC’s as when it is exposed to hot, humid temperature.

Avoiding or reducing the quantity of red meat in our diet helps not only in cutting down calories but also reduces the risk of heart ailments, colon cancer to name a few. Switch to healthy oil options like palm and olive oils.

Take to egg white preparations in scrambled or boiled forms. An optional low calorie protein shake could be a better alternative to starch based preparations of rice. Opt away from butter, cream, cheese based gravies and opt for clear soups, tomato based gravies.

Switch to skimmed milk brands in yoghurts and ice cream. Opting for skimmed milk in tea coffee and choosing sugar substitutes in beverages in a healthy option. Lay preference to high fibre cereals and rusks rather than the frosted cereals and chocolate chip cookies. Avoid aerated drinks, peanuts and opt for seared, pan fried, grilled, poached, steamed or smoked forms in the food you order.

Add loads of fruits avoiding banana, and pile up on salads and veggies in your diet. Regulate the portion size of the meals you consume. Keep healthy nibbles like corn, high fibre bars for hunger pangs in between. Switch to green tea, brown or multigrain breads. Dark chocolates are a healthier option and can be consumed occasionally.
