The holiday season makes you go on a binge mode, whether it’s a party or a simple family dinner. With good food everywhere it is tough to resist all that delectable stuff and end up giving into overindulgence. So, after the binging session, it is time for some healthy detox. Remember, the holiday hogging was just a phase and not someting to be continued forever. So here are some easy detox plans which will help you plan some post-holiday weight loss.

1. BREAKFAST

Breakfast

After overindulging, you need to give your stomach a break. It would be a good idea to wait till the hunger pangs strikes and then have a fiber-rich breakfast. This is to get your digestive system back on track. The mild flavors help in stimulating taste buds and don’t cause sensory overload. Adding pear would be a good antioxidant and high water content always helps.
Opt for an orange, a bowl of muesli, and skimmed milk if you are not into oatmeal, but remember, it’s the best option.

2. LUNCH

A green salad topped up with leftover chicken, or anything that is left over from the veggie platter would be nice. Make sure the salad dressing is low calorie and a small whole grain roll won’t hurt. Other options include sub sandwiches. They are full of healthy veggies, go easy on the sauces again and make sure you keep the quantity lesser than what you ate for breakfast.

Note: As you proceed with every meal in the day, make sure that it is lighter than the last one. That is why having a heavy breakfast is of utmost importance.

3. DINNER

Dinner

Here, you can continue with mixing some of the leftovers with some healthy ingredients. Keep about 500 calories for your dinner. For instance, if you have a salad or another small sandwich, it leaves you with enough calories left to have a glass of wine. Hence, you don’t have to give it all up in one go. Heaved a sigh of relief there, didn’t you?

4. SNACKS

Don’t forget to eat your snacks between the three meals mentioned above. You are detoxing, not trying to become a supermodel. The snacks could be anything from an ounce of almonds, air-popped popcorn or an apple. You could also go for other dry fruits like raisins, dates, etc but don’t go overboard as not all of them are low on calorific value.

5. THE SMALL THINGS MATTER

a. Coffee

Order your coffee with nonfat milk rather than with cream and sugar. Add some artificial low calorie sweetner if you must, but avoid sugar.

b. Ditch The Chips

Avoid any kind of chips, no matter what is written on the label. Diet chips don’t exist, almost not. If they do, you are really have to hunt them down. But till then, popcorn to the rescue, ofcourse, no butter goes without saying.

c. No Top Bread For Your Sandwich

Opt for an open faced sandwich, remove the top loaf. An open faced sandwich is just as satisfying as the one with double the quantity of bread. Isn’t the filling the best part after all? Now you get to have it without the top bread coming in your way.

d. Swap The Mayo With Mustard

We know everyone loves mayonnaise, but how good is it with 90 calories per tablespoon as opposed to mustard with 10 calories per tablespoon. It also adds a spicy bite, and it is yummy as hell.

e. Cut Down On The Rice Servings

Usually one ends up taking two rice servings with things like a stir fry, dal, bhajiya, or even a favourite vegetable. Cut that down strictly to one serving a day and you will notice that you feel lighter than usual. Stick to one serving at dinner and spend those calories on other yummy things later.

f. Comfort Food

Comfort food is a must have, isn’t it? No amount of weight gain can make us not want it. So we go for some healthier comfort food instead. Like fried chicken? How about oven frying it instead? Baked potatoes on bread topped with cheddar cheese are fine too, but make sure you have a salad to accompany that. Big fan of Italian food? Try oven baked lasagna with whole wheat lasagne noodles instead.

So that was our short roundup of everything you can do to detox after the overindulgence of the holidays. Hope this article helped. If you have any more tips to share, please do comment in the section below. We would be glad to have your feedback.

They definitely look great on thin and lean women, but the advantage of them being so versatile is that they also look great on plump and plus size women.

One hell of an effective way to wear a maxi skirt is to team it up with a cropped blazer. A block colored skirt in pink or yellow worn with a black tank top tucked inside, and then with a printed blazer worn on top can look amazing. Make sure you go for shapes like strips or circles, etc in the prints rather than florals and other common prints. Vertical stripes work best as they will make your body look longer.

2. JEAN VEST

Denim never fails to work its magic. The same tank top and skirt combination can work beautifully with a denim jacket as well, preferably sleeveless. Make sure the skirt is in a dark color though, black would be safest.

3. LACE IT UP

It is absolutely okay to take risks once you have gotten comfortable with maxi skirts or any kind of long skirts for that matter. This can be done by teaming it up with a simple lace top maybe? But as long skirts are flared, it would be advisable to go for sleeveless and fitted tops rather than ones which are loose or have flared sleeves.

4. WRAP MAXI SKIRT

Beside the fact that it is extremely comfortable to wear, a wrap maxi skirt can work wonders as it cinches your waist and makes it seem thinner. Pair a pop colored skirt with a nice print on it, and wear a crop top with it. Make sure the crop top is a color close to one of those on the skirt.

5. PRINTED FITTED SKIRT

A printed skirt which is fitted till the thighs looked really great if worn with a pop colored top, sounds good right? Well, it looks good too. This is one combination that only the bold dressers out there should try out but.

6. FLARED SKIRT

People come in all shapes and sizes; some are of average height while some are taller or shorter. For girls of short height, a major concern while dressing up is of clothes overwhelming their small frame. Above all, retail shopping can seem limited for they go by sizes. A beautiful crop top on a model can very well end up looking like a normal length top. So how do you exactly pick clothes and style to flatter your height?

Alternative- Alter the length. If not, wear with knee-high boots or cuff and wear with ‘pointed’ shoes.

2. Avoid wide-legged trousers

The opposite of skinny jeans, wide-legged pants draw attention and add bulk to the lower body. Best avoided, especially those with heavier bottoms.

Instead- try clean, straight-cut trousers.
To rock wide-legged trousers, get the length right, wear with a well-fitted top and with heels in neutral/matching shade.
A stylish statement neckpiece will help draw attention away from the lower body.

3. Avoid big prints and patterns

Clothes with such big prints look busy, more so on petite women and can end up swallowing the height.

Instead– Opt for smaller prints.
To wear bold prints nevertheless, compliment them with earthy/subdued shades. For instance, bright printed dress with a nice solid jacket will create a good balance.

4. Avoid OTT multi-color clothes

Too much color can create a distraction from the normal body proportion.

Instead-Stick to one or two shades if you’re going bright.
When in the mood for multi-colors, layer with a neutral shade. And use color-blocking, a stylish trend, to clever advantage.

5. Avoid too much layering

Multiple layering, if not done well, tends to break the body proportion.

Instead– Opt for classy slim belts.
If you do want to wear broad belts, decide on a shade that matches the top/dress/skirt.

7. Avoid heavy ruffles

Ruffles add bulk. The more ruffles, more heavy the frame appears.

Instead– Go for small, dainty ruffles.

8. Avoid tops with drooping shoulder sleeve

The shoulder sleeve of the tops/blazers should sit correctly. Anything slightly big will end up drooping at the shoulders-a very unflattering look.

Instead– Get the top/blazer tailored. No time? Create an illusion of fitted tops/blazers by simply pushing up the sleeves.

9. Avoid broad strap shoes

Chunky ankle-strap heels or flats break the leg’s proportion, often making one appear squat.

Instead– Try thin strap shoes.
To wear broad strap shoes, opt for one in nude tones.

10. Avoid ill fitted clothes

Anything boxy, oversized or with excess fabric can be very overwhelming, doesn’t matter how skinny one is.

Instead– Wear well fitted clothes, always the best option!
To wear oversized styles, balance out with skin-tight clothes. Camouflage ill-fitted tops by layering with a fitted cardigan/waistcoat.

  • Skeptical of midi-lengths? Try a high-waist midi-skirt paired with fitted top and pointy heels
  • That one shouldn’t wear maxis if she’s short is passé. Just pick a maxi style that suits your body type. But yes, make sure the hem doesn’t drag
  • Cuff long sleeves or tailor them to your correct length
  • A voluminous skirt or top can actually be flattering when paired with structured/fitted clothes
  • There is no saying that you shouldn’t wear flats or platforms. Just try pointy-toed instead of square/round-toed shoes

  • Go half-tucked in with oversized tops
  • Wear a fitted camisole underneath a cropped top to lengthen the torso
  • For relaxed-fit dress, clinch the waist with a slim belt
  • Throw in an unbuttoned jacket or kimono to create an elongating vertical line
