You dont need me to tell you that Boxing is a very weight orientated sport and managing weight safely and correctly is the best way to stay on top of your game.
With lockdown currently in place across England, and gyms being closed, we are definitely going to be moving a lot less and the stress of the current situation will make us want to eat more, a lot more.
This is stress eating, plain and simple, but here are 3 ways you can help to prevent it
1. Remove Temptation
The easiest way to prevent high sugar, or other high-calorie goodies, from setting you back is to remove the temptation in the first place.
If it’s in your house….you will probably eat it. But if you can remove the temptation in the first place, it might make it a whole lot easier to keep you on track.
2. Maintain a Healthy Meal Schedule
If you can maintain a healthy meal schedule, you will be less likely to experience hunger and cravings throughout the day.
Skipping meals often results in low blood sugar, which can lead to cravings or just mindless eating. And when this occurs, weight management becomes very hard.
Maintain your eating schedule so you can keep your blood sugar levels under control, and keep cravings away.
3. Choose Your Foods Wisely
If you do find yourself binge eating due to stress, then choosing the right foods could go a long way to keeping the weight under control
Instead of choosing high-calorie foods, opt for fruits and vegetables, to satisfy your sweet tooth, without packing in the calories.
Keep healthy foods on hand, and junk food out.
Although Lockdowns are notorious for creating stress, which often leads to stress eating, it can happen all year long. And stress eating can move you backwards when it comes to your weight management. Keep these tips in mind during Lockdown—or any time you feel like the stress is too much and you’re looking for a tasty treat. Dedicated To Your Success Dave Wimborne Boxing Club PS
