Lifestyle Hacks For Getting Fit And Healthy.
By now everyone knows that the best way to have a long and happy life is eating healthy, taking less alcohol, eliminate the cigarettes and regular exercise. But staying motivated and sticking to a healthy regime and a fitness schedule is not easy.
In order to attain your desired weight goal and improve your fitness level, you need to have the entire family involved. Having the entire family on board means they will support each other.
Have a set and well maintained meal time. The earlier the meal time, the better. Have lunch between 12.30 and 1.00pm, and dinner between 6 and 6.30 pm. Try to have you lunch between 12.30 and 1.00 pm and have dinner 6 to 6.30 pm. Meal times should be as follows, lunch between 12.30 and 1.00 pm, while dinner between 6 pm to 6.30 pm. Studies have shown that eating late often leads to the growth of a fat known as triglyceride in the blood. The unused calories are converted to triglyceride which will increase risk of stroke and heart attack. Eating early ensures you burn the calories consumed.
Make sure the whole family is present during meal times. This will enable you to talk about your days. It also helps to regulate the eating speed. By sitting down and relaxing during a meal, you will be aware of the foods you put in your mouth. Additionally, your body will have enough time to communicate with your brain when you are full and digest the consumed food.
You must not pile your plate with food. A moderate portion is enough. If you feel short changed during meal times, use a smaller plate. The volume of the food will have reduced although visually it will appear the same. This way you will be satisfied with what you get.
You need to have a good attitude and mindset about food and fitness in order to succeed. Use various methods to assist you along the way as you use mind trick with the small serving plate or play with your perception of the serving you get.
You have to understand and accept the fact that although you may be able to eat what you want when and how you want to, you can also choose the fit and healthy alternative. You must understand that every snack matters. You might be having cake crumbs with very little calories, but the fact remains you are feeding the habit.
Sticking to a basic fitness regime and remaining motivated is easier said than done. It is hard to schedule a fitness regime in this busy life. One often has family and work commitments taking priority. Write down the advantages of exercise, what you want to get from it and how you feel about it. To stay motivated, set goals which you can achieve.
