How to Burn calories after Diwali

Festivals and food go hand in hand. There are a lot of cheat meals, and you may end up feeling less than jolly. Diwali is a season of parties. It is a great time to meet with friends and family. But all these functions can take a toll on your health and waistline. Again, there are New Year resolutions, and we need to start from where we have stated previously. Then there is the biggest question: How do you burn calories after Diwali?

As you know, cycling is a low-cost exercise. Bicycles can be used for transportation and weight loss. For any weight loss, the number one component is the physical activity that engages the body to burn calories. The Bicycle can be used to burn calories, and ultimately, it helps to lose more weight. Health and Quality of life can be improved by weight loss. Cycling alone will not help; a balanced diet also plays an important role. Below are a few essential tips to burn calories after Diwali

Be Active

It is difficult nowadays to visit a gym due to this coronavirus pandemic. Get active with the family with outdoor cricket, swimming, and bike riding. You can also take a ride on a bicycle and have a tour of your city. Burn those extra Calories by being active this season. Diwali is often the time for group gatherings and family vacations in India. Make it enjoyable, and spend some quality time with your nearest and dearest while getting your heart pumping. Try to be active and engage in some physical activity.

Start with Small Bicycle rides.

If you are a beginner, then start with small bicycle rides. Start with 10 to 15 minutes every day and add five to 10 minutes to your sessions in each subsequent week. If you go on a bike daily, you must build up to longer sessions to avoid injuring your muscles and joints.

 Longer Session cycling

A minimum of 30 minutes of cycling should be done daily to lose weight. According to Shape Fit, an average-sized person can burn between 250 and 500 calories in just 30 minutes; burning excess calories leads to weight loss. For every 5000 calories you burn, you can lose up to 500 grams of weight.    

Indoor/Outdoor Cycling

Try a different session for cycling, starting from indoor to outdoor rides. You can use stationary bicycles for indoor cycling and incorporate outdoor cycling. A plateau is when your body adapts to physical activity and stops losing weight. Variety in cycling helps you interested and prevents your body from reaching a plateau.  

 Visit nearby places for cycling.

 Instead of driving your car or 2-wheeler, use the Bicycle to visit nearby places. You can also burn some extra calories and save fuel and pollution. This way, you can contribute to the environment as well. Try riding to work, the grocery store, and any place you can safely travel to within minutes of your home on your Bicycle.


Interval Bicycle Training

 Perform interval training while biking to lose weight even faster. Try alternating 60-second intervals of faster-paced and slower-paced riding. By alternating intervals where you work your hardest with intervals of slower periods, you force your muscles to work harder, boost your metabolism, and burn more calories.

Stick to a training routine.

After a few days of less-than-clean eating, you may be tempted to jump on a bicycle and sweat with an overload of cardio. However, it’s essential to keep your strength training on track. Strength training can burn just as many calories as cardio, and with all the extra gains you’ve consumed, you may even gain some extra muscle (much better than gaining holiday fat).

These are a few tips that can help you to lose weight and burn calories after Diwali. Also, if you cycle every day, it can put extra stress on your muscles. If you feel tired, reduce the time spent cycling. Use a proper diet and see the change in your body.
