Holidays make for the most wonderful time of the year. It’s the time of year when people tend to enjoy themselves to the fullest. Let’s admit that your daily routine is changing this time of year. From late dinners to alcohol consumption, you’ll be given a variety of options for taking a break from a restricted diet.
After a nightly party, many feel that they have arrived overnight. Well, nutritionist Pooja Malhotra says arriving at night is logistically impossible. But there are several reasons why you feel so heavy and even bloated. She shares a post on Instagram about the same.
In the caption, she says, “The party season is in full swing, but the mornings after that seem awful because of the weight you put on overnight.”
Pooja asks in the video, “Do you end up gaining a pound or more after eating out once?” She then explains that it’s not logistically possible, because that would require a 7,000-calorie surplus in a day.
According to the nutritionist, here’s why you sometimes feel like you’ve gained a pound or two overnight:
1) The weight gain may be due to the excess sodium in the bakery products. For example, delicacies such as pizzas, burgers, fries, fries and also sauces, dips and garnishes can have weight gain properties.
2) Another major culprit is alcohol. Yes, most of the time you should know that the alcohol you consume is empty calories when you go out with your friends. Also the accompaniments are fried and salty stuff.
3) Pooja mentions that alcohol also dries out the tissues causing the body to retain water resulting in water retention. Also, out-of-home dinners usually take place at a time much later than our usual dinner time, which again can be a problem.
4) Another big culprit is the high fat content. A dish as simple as a yellow dal prepared in a restaurant cannot be compared to its homemade counterpart in terms of fat content.
So all these extra calories from the alcohol, fat, carbs and water weight will make you gain weight at night, adds Pooja.
So if you want to stay in shape, it’s important to follow a healthy lifestyle and avoid eating out late as much as possible. Avoiding alcohol consumption can also be good for your overall health.
