27 Apr Getting Fit For Summer Can Be a Breeze?
It is no secret that Summer is approaching and that means less clothes. Instead of dreading it I recommend the following tips to help you along your path to fitness.
Avoid fad diets. Manipulating food intake with fad diets that eliminate essential nutrients only contributes to low energy and irritability. The easiest way to deal with diet concerns is to cut back portion sizes. For example, eat two-thirds the amount you normally would at each setting and stock up on good quality protein as well as low glycemic fruits and vegetables. Veggies are full of fiber, fill you up and satisfy your appetite!
Steady wins the race. If you are not currently exercising, start with a low-to-moderate intensity workout like walking or jogging. Work up to at least 30 minutes three days a week and after four weeks you could even see a weight loss of nearly four to five pounds, while maintaining portion control in your diet.
Strength training isn’t just for body builders. Try adding weight training to your current routine. Nothing too intimidating, but just 20 minutes of basic exercises two days a week will help firm and tone your whole body. Strength training can also increase your metabolism causing you to burn more calories even while you rest.
There’s no such thing as spot reduction. Research has yet to demonstrate it is physiologically possible to “spot reduce” (i.e., lose weight or take inches off a particular part of the body). In fact, numerous studies have resoundingly refuted this claim. No amount of crunches or leg lifts will give you “six pack” abs. The only thing that works is eating a sensible low glycemic carbohydrate diet and following an exercise program that combines aerobic activity and strength training to effectively shape your body.
One sure fire way of losing weight is by drinking copious amounts of water. Drinking water flushes fats out of your system as well as increasing your metabolism. Instead of soft drinks or powdered drink mixes that are loaded with chemicals and sugar, what I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of SteviaSweet Pure Stevia Powder. Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored and break the routine even more by adding a little unsweetened cranberry juice. Click here to order SteviaSweet Pure Stevia Powder.
