Exercise and Weight Loss
If you want to lose weight then increasing the amount of daily exercise you do is a great idea but you must remember that you’ve also got to eat properly. The two things definitely need to go hand in hand when you want to lose a little excess weight.
There is a rule here – you get fit in the gym but you lose weight in the kitchen – it doesn’t actually matter how many miles you run in a week if you keep treating yourself with a jelly donut when you’ve finished. Actually, .
We’ve all heard those poor, misguided souls who say “I can eat whatever I like because I hit the gym three times every week” – wrong. (less than a minute) .
If you take part in a high energy, . Let’s do the math; .
” Eat smaller portion sizes – buy smaller plates if you think it will help. Most of us eat portions which are far greater than we need anyhow – it’s all down to the “Supersize that” culture.
” Re-educate yourself to eat five or six smaller meals every day instead of three large meals – that can help too, remember that they’ve got to be small meals though.
” Eat plenty of lean proteins to help fill you up and give you the energy for exercising without piling on any extra pounds – plenty of skinless turkey and chicken, salmon, tuna, lean beef, egg whites
” You can eat fats, just make sure that they are healthy fats – extra virgin olive oil is about the best there is
” Drink lots of water and limit the amount of soda – – they keep piling on the weight without giving you any goodness whatsoever. Water is the secret to quenching your thirst.
” Say no to alcohol or at least reduce your alcohol consumption. If you must have drinks try wine instead of beer which should help a little.
– not of the stuff you think you eat and drink but of the stuff that you do actually eat and drink. You may find that there’s a huge difference in the two.
Remember, . You’ll feel slimmer, fitter, healthier, happier and have lots more energy.
