Your fitness isn’t only a reflection of the number of hours you spend in the gym and the healthy food you’ve been eating. A large number of tiny, external factors affect your fitness like lack of sleep, stress, sedentary lifestyle, etc. A perfect fitness plan takes all these factors into consideration along with your fitness training. We’re in a constant battle against everything that stands in our path to being a lean, mean fighting machine. We believe that these small tips can definitely push you towards a healthier, fitter you.
Schedule Family Fitness Time:
Rather than spending time in front of a movie screen, consuming greasy sugar loaded treats, you can take the family out on a hike or a picnic and have a fun, healthy day that’ll bring the family together.
Get a Good Night’s Sleep:
Spending too little time hitting the sack is proven to cause stress to the body by increasing cortisol and insulin. This makes fat loss difficult, as it promotes fat storage and fatigue.
Get Active At Work:
Rather than being sedentary at work, we suggest you walk around in your breaks, also when you’re sitting in front of your computer, you can sit up and pull in your abs.
As the cook, you can control the amount of butter and saturated fats that go into your food. Grilling and roasting foods are the best options. You can also control the amount of salt and sugars you use, by limiting the use of preserved sauces and instant mixes.
Eat Smaller, More Frequent Meals:
Studies show that eating 6 small meals a day is beneficial in the long run, as the smaller the meal, the less your stomach will stretch.
Studies show that stress is the major cause of many diseases. So, take a deep breath and don’t stress over the small stuff, it’ll just make things more stressful.
Hydrate with Water:
Don’t turn to sodas, juices or calorie laden drinks when you’re thirsty. Drink 8 glasses of water to quench your thirst. Most people binge eat without realizing the cause of their hunger is actually thirst.
Always Eat a Wholesome Breakfast:
Studies show that people who eat a good breakfast are less likely to binge during the day and be obese. We suggest eggs, as a breakfast of eggs and whole wheat toast/oats will fuel you for the rest of your day.
