Hey, Asian Dieting friends! It’s been a long while since my last post, but I haven’t forgotten about any of you. Life, as always, keeps me busy and these days seem to be more about rest, relaxation, and hibernation due to the weather. Depending on what part of the world you live, winter is always a struggle to get through, but with it comes some great opportunities to try different types of food or drinks that you normally wouldn’t try during the warmer months. One of the best things that I love incorporating into my life every winter season is ginger. There are countless number of health benefits of ginger and I personally recommend everyone giving it a try!
These days, so many people are quick to get caught up in the next big dieting or workout craze. I can’t name how many times I’ve gone paleo, vegetarian, pescetarian, etc. and came crashing back to Earth by pigging out on a greasy burger when the diet was over. The problem is when these new health fads don’t put a major dent in my muffin top overnight.
Now, I know that I need to temper my expectations, but the issue is these diets and workouts also cost a lot of time and money. When these efforts don’t produce immediate and sustainable results, it feels pretty disheartening and quite frankly stresses me out quite a bit. Stress can do a lot of bad things to our bodies and one of the biggest things it can do is indirectly make us gain weight. This is why learning how to control our stress can make positive impacts in our lives and can ultimately aid in weight loss.
