Experts shared several rules to help avoid gaining extra pounds in winter: one of them is to drink enough water.

Weight gain often occurs during the winter months. In winter, many people's level of physical activity decreases, but at the same time the number of nutritious and tasty dishes in their diet increases. Is it any wonder subsequently that the waistband on your trousers stops meeting?

Meanwhile, by following a number of rules you can avoid the unwanted gain of additional kilograms, RBC Life reported this.
In particular, in a way that helps not to gain extra weight in winter, is to drink enough water.

“In winter, a person produces the same amount of sweat as at other times of the year. And due to heating devices working around the clock, warm and multi-layered clothing, the body becomes severely dehydrated. This can lead to overeating, since people tend to confuse thirst with hunger,” experts explained the need to drink water.
In addition to drinking water, taking foods containing tryptophan (for example, there is a lot of it in turkey and other poultry meat, broccoli) helps prevent you from gaining excess weight in winter. The use of tryptophan promotes the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that provides a person with a good mood and resistance to stress. Anxiety and worry often contribute to people overeating.

Another rule: in winter, you should eat more warm liquid meals – this warms you up and helps you avoid overindulging in calories.

In addition, you should maintain a constantly balanced feeling satiety – eat regularly and little by little. If the body does not receive food for a long time in winter, when accessing it, a “brutal” appetite may arise with the absorption of large quantities of food.

You also need to adhere to the rule of maintaining physical activity – in winter you should do exercises regularly and walk more often in the fresh air .
