The Beginning of the year is the only time of the year when the gyms are crowded and it seems that everyone in the country maintains physical fitness and that everyone takes care for his body and health. But the reality is much different, and most of the people that start on January 1, will end up until February 1 in the gym. If you are aware that you are, as the author of these lines, one of them, but still want to be fit, we bring you three simple basic steps that you should follow and which should help you get the desired fit body this year.
Improve your nutrition
The first step for a healthy and fit body is a diet, not a strict diet, but paying attention to small changes in your nutrition. Although doing exercises is always good for a first step for a slim body, it doesn’t help if you eat too much fatty foods each day. We don’t even talk about of reducing caloric intake (we’ll talk about that later), but only about the basic diet that makes your muscles and body more flexible and stronger. The point is that you not feel depressed and that’s why you do not deny what you love to eat, but just makes sure you get all you need in the body. You also know which things are bad for you – smoking, a lot of alcohol, a lot of sugar and sweets, fatty fast food, fizzy drinks and artificially colored etc. But only by the consuming of low-fat pure white meat, vegetables, fruit, cheese, you will achieve gradually reducing the bad ones, and that is a half way already achieved.
The next step is to add a little bit of physical activity, we say a little bit because if you start with exercises for over an hour in the first day – you won’t quickly become fit, but tomorrow you will be broken and you will give up exercise, perhaps not because you want to but because you won’t be able to walk and do any exercises. Exercising is a way of life and once you get into a rhythm – running two days a week, gym or exercising in front of the TV will be enough to keep the muscles tight, lifted butt and your stomach flat.
Reduce your calorie intake
If you are trying to lose weight, decreasing your caloric intake is crucial. Engaging in regular exercise makes your body burn more calories, but to maximize your results, pay attention to your intake of calories from food, as well. A small reduction in the volume of food you eat, coupled with smart shopping and cooking, can help you reduce your caloric intake and maintain long-term weight loss.
