Are you tired of dieting? Have you tried everything and can’t be constant? In this blog we bring you a series of recommendations that will help you lead a healthier life to achieve your goals!
1. You know it… E X E R C I S E
Everyone tells you that you must exercise to lose weight, but the key is to know how much and how to exercise. Have you heard that doing cardio will help you lose weight? Several specialists mention that although doing cardio promotes an increase in the metabolism rate, this effect only happens during the time that your training lasts.
However, weight training keeps your metabolism rate going all day, and not just as you go about your routine. So now you know, if you want to have better results in less time, we recommend you to accompany your cardio routine with weight lifting.
On the other hand, it is necessary to change your exercise routine from time to time because the body is like a perfect machine looking for ways to optimize energy! So repeating the same routine for several days will lead your body to spend less and less energy as you carry out this activity.
2. R E D U C E S R E S S
It is well known that many people, when stressed or anxious, tend to consume foods rich in fats, sugars and calories. We’d like to emphasize that living with stress is not something you should get used to because this has different negative effects on your health.
It’s ok… I’m not gonna tell you to calm down… instead I’m going to leave you a list of tips! So hopefully your stress levels are reduced and your lifestyle becomes healthier. (Which one can you try this week?)
- Breathing Exercises
- Organize your priorities
- Have an exclusive moment for YOU during the day
- Again, exercise! (15 minutes, 30 minutes, whatever! Just move that body!)
- Get enough sleep!
- Be in touch with your loved ones!
However, we know that there are situations in which a snack is necessary and that is why we advise you to opt for options that offer you nutrients instead of sugar or fats, such as: bars of puffed rice without sugar, mix of nuts, dried fruits or a low sugar jelly. If you still find it difficult, try to eat your snacks that are less healthy in moderation! Once or twice a week.
3. T A K E C A R E O F Y O U R D I E T
Sometimes diets do not give us the results we expect! but they do make us more aware of our will power. If dieting is not your thing, don´t you worry! Practice moderation.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has made reveral recommendations that will help you take care of your health without having to follow a strict food menu. The ”WHO” highlights an appropiate consumption of water and recommends keeping fat intake below 30% of your daily caloric intake… sugars should exceed 10% and the consumption of iodized salt should be less than 5 grams per day.
Likekise, you can integrate foods rich in fiber into your food! And this will help you improve the transit of food through your instestines and increase your fullness.
Finally, if you have any health problem or if you are pregnant, consult a specialist before making a major change in your diet or exercise routine.
