Spring Back into Fitness Post Eid: With Our Weight Loss Tips πŸŒΌπŸ‹οΈβ€β™‚οΈ

As the festivities of Eid come to a close, with most of us indulging in delicious meals and sweet treats 🍽️🍰, it's time to get back strong and refocus our energy on our fitness & health.

If you found yourself enjoying a little too much food and relaxation during Eid, don't worry – you're not alone. Many of us tend to indulge during special occasions, and that's perfectly okay. However, now is the perfect opportunity to prioritize our health and fitness for that summer body! πŸ’ͺπŸ’«

During Eid, you may have noticed a slight increase in weight on the scale. Here's what was really going on:


  1. Re-hydration: During Ramzan, dehydration is common due to fasting. As you re-hydrate during Eid, your body naturally retains water, reflecting as a slight increase on the scale. πŸ’§πŸ’¦
  2. Carbs and Sugar: Eid celebrations often include indulging in sweets and carb-rich dishes like seviyan (Vermicelli Pudding) 🍚. These foods can lead to temporary water retention, adding to the scale's reading.
  3. Sodium Intake: Heavy, savoury dishes are common during Eid (Salan, Chaats etc.) which tend to be high in sodium. Increased sodium intake can also cause water retention, contributing to the temporary weight gain. πŸ›πŸ§‚
  4. Digestive Process: Overeating during Eid can lead to a fuller stomach and slower digestion, temporarily adding weight on the scale. 🀰🍽️
  5. Caloric Surplus: Celebrations often involve consuming more calories than usual, which may lead to a small amount of actual fat gain. However, this is minor compared to overall weight fluctuations. πŸ°πŸ”


While these temporary fluctuations may seem concerning, it's important to REMEMBER that real progress is achieved through consistent habits and routines. πŸ“ˆπŸ’§Here are some TIPS to help you spring back into fitness after Eid:

  1. 🎯✨ Reflect on Your Goals: Take some time to reflect on your fitness goals and why they are important to you. Use this reflection as motivation to get back on track.
  2. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ‹οΈβ€β™€οΈ Start Slowly: Ease back into your fitness routine gradually. Don't feel pressured to jump back into high impact workouts right away. Instead, start with low impact exercises and gradually increase the intensity as you regain momentum.
  3. πŸ₯¦πŸ— Focus on Nutrition: Prioritize nutritious, balanced meals that fuel your body and support your fitness goals. Incorporate plenty of lean protein, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into your diet. Follow our Plate Method for further guidance.
  4. πŸ’§β˜• Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and flush out toxins from your body. Opt for water over sugary drinks or excessive caffeine.
  5. πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ€ Find Accountability: Partner with a friend, family member, or workout buddy to hold each other accountable and stay motivated on your fitness journey.
  6. πŸŽ‰πŸ† Celebrate Progress: Celebrate your achievements and milestones along the way, no matter how small. Recognize your hard work and dedication to your health and fitness journey.


Remember, getting back into fitness after Eid is not about perfection – it's about progress and consistency. Embrace the journey, stay focused on your goals, and keep moving forward one step at a time.
