Massive offenders! Winter foods that cause you to put on more weight than usual

Cold winter days, cozy blankets, and hot meals sound perfect. There is nothing more to make a cold day more calm and pleasurable. When their scale rises, comfort eating can become troublesome for many.

There are a number of reasons why people put on a few more pounds during the winter. The first effect of cold weather is a drop in physical activity; the second is a slowdown in metabolism; and the third is an increase in food intake to combat the chill.

Keeping fit or losing weight during this season is difficult due to all these factors. Some meal choices are more commonly associated with weight gain than others; here are some ways to keep your weight in check.

No winter is complete without a steaming mug of soup. Not only does it keep you warm, but it also gives you nutrition to fight off cold, which means it can help suppress unexpected hunger. However, you run the risk of gaining weight if you choose soups that are heavy in cream. Having soup isn't always bad for you; we simply want you to be mindful of what you eat.

Soups with clear liquids, such as tomato, vegetable, or bone broth, are preferable to creamy soups. The addition of cream raises the soup's calorie content, which in turn causes weight gain.

You must be careful when eating these winter treats. You can still consume them, but watch the quantity and frequency. It's simple to overeat dessert 2-3 times a day and regret it. Dessert once and sparingly. Try making a nutritious dessert at home.

Winter treats include hot, butter-stuffed parathas with pickle or chutney. It's easy to cook and the most popular lunch or supper choice with so many seasonal vegetables. Potatoes, cauliflower, radish, and carrot are all great paratha fillings.

But to make it nutritious and regulate your weight, watch how much ghee or butter you add. Fat keeps you warm in winter, but too much might cause weight gain. Also consider this when making sarson ka saag.

What is winter without coffee and tea? Warm drinks keep us active in cold weather. Sugary, whole milk beverages may induce weight gain. Limit yourself to 2-3 cups of coffee and tea each day and drink herbal or black tea. Oolong, green, hibiscus, and lemongrass teas are antioxidant-rich and anti-inflammatory.They stimulate metabolism and are low-calorie.
