Perfect Autumn Diet – How To Avoid Autumn Belly

In autumn we eat more fats, calories and proteins, we drink less fluids therefore, we may gain extra pounds.  Also, we cook more and that can also lead to gaining weight.

Vegetables that improve our mood and fruits that strengthen us

Consuming veggies can prevent autumn melancholia. Since vegetables are rich in vitamin C, beta carotene and folic acid, veggies strengthen our nervous system. What are the groceries we should eat?

  • Broccoli – vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin K, iron, potassium
  • Red cabbage (purple cabbage) – vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin K
  • Brussels Sprouts – vitamin C, beta carotene, folic acid
  • Chinese cabbage – folic acid, vitamin C, beta carotene, iron, potassium

It is recommended to eat sauerkraut, spinach, lettuce, zucchini, peppers, eggplants. Eat raw veggies or boil them for a short time in order to maintain their richness in vitamins and minerals. Groceries are the best in late autumn, since they contain the highest levels of healthy ingredients at that time. Daily intake of apples, oranges, kiwis, hips, gives us strength.

Exercise more

It is important to maintain active and exercise at the same level we were active in the summer time. Try out yoga or a local gym.

Keep in mind the number of calories

In autumn we eat less salad and our servings may become bigger so it is important to keep in mind the calories we eat during the day and the amount of food we eat daily. We dress in more comfortable clothes and we are less active, so it is easy to gain weight without noticing it. Enjoy the seasonal change but keep in mind all these obstacles.

Water is important

During the summer we drink more water, but we should keep that habit during the autumn also. Water helps our skin stay hydrated. It also keeps our organism well balanced and keeps calories under control. We often confuse thirst with hunger.
