Here Is What You Should Eat If You Are Working Out During Summers
The hot scorching sun and the humidity results in excessive sweat but these fruits and vegetables will help you beat the heat.
As much as we love a good high intensity workout, the summer months really test our patience. Exercising during the hot and humid weather means we sweat twice as much as we used to in the less warm seasons.
Many of us also consider taking a break and resuming their workout routines during the colder seasons because let’s face it, not everyone is blessed with the luxury of working out in an air-conditioned room.
According to our health and fitness expert Noman Tariq, it is a genuine and common problem in South East Asia due to its climate.
However, if you do plan to continue your workout routine to stay fit during the summer season, it is important to consume the right fruits and vegetables as well – by this we mean incorporating foods that consist of excessive amount of water.
“Any fruit which contains excessive amount of water, such as melon, musk melon and cantaloupe should be consumed,” says Tariq, adding that, however, considering fruits only, will not resolve the concern.
It is important to update our overall diet, “one should add green veggies in lunch and dinner along with almonds and yogurt but avoid milk. Technically, milk should be taken but it contains fats and in this region, it should be avoided,” mentions Tariq.
On the other hand, excess sweat also gives way to body odor. For that Tariq recommends drinking lime water.
All you have to do is, “take a bottle of water, squeeze a lime in it and add two slices of lime along with a pinch of mint leaves and you have a refreshing drink for yourself.”
