For generations, we have reinforced the notion of losing weight by eating less and exercise more. Is that notion correct?
According to researches, most people who start their weight loss journey are misled by the myths of society. Few of them being eating less, starving, and working out more, which affects the health adversely.
These researches suggest little changes in lifestyle like mindful eating and physical exercises as simple as a walk. Instead of starving, people can switch to:
1) Eating healthy
2) Avoiding junk food
3) Intake of a lot of fluids
4) Regular exercising
People have different body types, belong to different age groups, so food patterns and exercises affect them differently. It is essential to understand what suits your body. You can stay healthy by eating a variety of food, logging it to see how different foods make your body feel, and then doing your meal-prep accordingly.
To lose weight, you don’t have to give up entirely on your favorite foods. With some knowledge and meal- planning, you can eat healthily 80% of the time, attend a social event, means eat whatever you want to, and lead a happier life than stressing over eating healthy 100% of the time.
You can also choose healthier options that contain fewer calories.
Planning your diet saves you a lot of time, prevents you from overeating and unhealthy eating options, and gives you more control over your body. It helps you in choosing healthy foods and limit your calorie intake according to your body requirements.
Eating healthy includes choosing healthy, both foods and practices. Healthy foods contain a high amount of nutrients such as carbohydrates and proteins and low amounts of sodium, saturated fats, and added sugars.
Eating in MODERATION- not too much and not too little. Even if you are choosing healthy food; still, you need to eat as per your body requirements.
Intake of fibers and liquids is also an essential part of cleansing the body, regulating bowel movements, and removing harmful toxins from it.
The most important meal of our day is breakfast. Skipping breakfasts prevent you from all the energy you need for the day and makes you more prone to diseases.
Exercising is as important as choosing the right diet. A simple walk daily for at least 30 minutes improves your cardiac health, lowers your blood pressure, promotes circulation of blood in the body, and helps in weight loss.
Excessive exercising does more harm than good. You need to plan your diet and your training according to the needs of your body.
