The key to fitness is thinking long term. Every one of us wants a well toned and good looking body and the key to getting that is to think smart. Every dietician that you ask will advise you to adopt a healthy lifestyle to lose weight instead of going for some fad diet or using some fancy gadget. And that is the correct way! Losing weight fast only lasts for a while till you gain it all back and more. This also leaves you feeling sickly and weak. A slow and gradual weight loss program is going to shed those pounds in a way that they don’t come back. Here are a few tips on how to lose weight with a healthy lifestyle.
99% of all nutritionists say that to lose weight you need to cut down your calorie intake and increase the output. In order to do that you firstly need to set an exercise routine whereby you engage in a moderate cardio and weight training workout every day for about half an hour. Keep it simple and mild so that you do not tire yourself out. Apart from that, reducing calorie intake does not mean starving yourself. Although that will reduce your weight instantly, you will gain all of it back within a month and because you will leave yourself feeling so hungry, you will probably put on more. Reducing calorie intake means setting a healthy and balanced diet plan for yourself and following it. Eat four to five small meals a day at regular intervals ensuring that you incorporate lots of fruit, vegetables, fiber and fluids in your diet along with healthy amounts of proteins and carbs!
Convince everyone around you to start working towards a healthy lifestyle. Plan your weight loss program in a way that your family wants to take part and can be accommodated. Set a diet plan that everyone should follow, plan cheat days where everyone gets to have some guilty pleasures, go for walks and picnics together as a family and without realizing that you are making much of an effort, you will have a healthier family who looks and feels much better than before.
The advancement in technology has trapped us all in its wake. It has ensured that kids stay glued to screens instead of playing outside, using their limbs and getting some fresh air. It has reduced meals to microwaveable TV dinners which mean that nobody is getting the healthy nutrition of fresh fruits and vegetables. Do not let this happen to you. Make the kids around you understand the joys of playing outside and join them by going for a run yourself. Apart from that, try to make your meals home cooked so that they are full of fresh nutrition and free of the processed fats that packaged foods contain. The previous generations did it for centuries, it can’t be that hard!
