Easy Fitness and Health Techniques

Thursday, October 4, 2012 · 0 comments

When one is referred to as fit we simply conclude that this person is most probably on a strict diet and chooses the right food always.  But that is surprisingly incorrect.  Being fit does not always mean you should not engorge yourself with lustful sweets and tasty treats then stick only to low carb high fiber diet.  Such is a stereotype. True is the fact that your choice of food affects your being fit but that does not mean you cannot have a cheat day.  Just make sure you have plenty of time spent on being busy physically and engage into sports. way If you are fit, your body works well, you feel extremely good inside out, and can do almost all the things you want to do.

Aside from that, one must consider to eat a variety of foods, and not just following on one line of the food pyramid.  Having a well rounded diet, which means you consume varied foods contained in the food pyramid, then that is likely the most ideal diet. You may have your own favorite food however, what is best for you is to eat a variety of food. If you set yourself in eating different foods then you are more likely to obtain the nutrients that your body really needs and not just what you want. One approach in establishing this strategy is to taste new foods which you have never tried yet and continue to feast on old ones you have not tried for a quite some time. Other foods, such as green veggies, becomes more pleasing to your taste buds once you get older in age but when you are still young and active you might clutter yourself eating oily unhealthy foods. Better make sure that you consume at least five servings of fruits, grains and vegetables a day with an equal ratio of two fruits and three vegetables a day.

Looking for a quick way to loose those extra pounds? These days, media, especially the internet is flooded by different trendy diets. They are very convincing particularly when they are endorsed by big celebrities, slender models, or your friends. When taken by the hype, you are definitely persuaded to give the latest diet scheme a try. Usually, these fad diets do help you shed extra pounds overnight. That cabbage soup diet that your friend swore by, made her lose five pounds in a week, and of course you are amazed enough to jump into the bandwagon straight away.

However, before you start shredding cabbage for your soup, do you know exactly what you are getting into? Remember, that the extra pounds you lose may be gained back as easily as you have lost it. Your weight loss goal as well as your plan to attain it must both be easy to follow. It would certainly be impractical and depressing to have cabbage soup all your life just to maintain your ideal weight. These fad diets are known to have disadvantageous effects. Studies show that they may give you instant results and solutions to your weight problems, but once discontinued, your weight comes back with renewed vigor.

The ultimate disadvantage that weight loss programs can bring is the toll it takes on your metabolic system. Not to mention the hormonal imbalance that can be triggered by the abrupt rise and fall in your weight. In contrast, your current diet scheme can be effective if integrated with the following essential points:

Cut Down On Serving Sizes

Initially, there is no need to cut out everything all at once. Begin by cutting down on your serving sizes. Cutting back on your calorie intake abruptly will give your body no choice but to lead your metabolic rate into a sudden halt.
