Oh, weight loss! We want it, crave it and will try almost anything to achieve it. So why do we skip the sweaty stuff? Here are four weight-loss tips to inspire you to move more …
We have spoken about what to eat when wanting to drop a few kilograms, but sometimes we need to learn how to get active to really make the most of our weight-loss goals.
Here are four simple effective ways to get moving and keep on track:
1. Fire up your metabolism
High intensity interval training, or HIIT, has become a big hit for fitness buffs all over the globe. With minute bursts of high intensity training, and 30 seconds of rest in between, you give yourself a metabolism boost.
This type of training helps to combine two cardiovascular exercise approaches, body-weight exercise and weight training. Plus, it can be done in twenty minutes, which is ideal for a busy woman on the move.
2. Get organised
I have found that having an online weight-control programme works really well for me. I like being able to track my meals, my workouts and everything in between when it comes to following a healthier path.
You can find a whole host of apps online that do just this for you and I recommend finding the one that works for you. With so many to choose from, you’re sure to find an app that meets your goals, needs and data plan.
If you find you’re moving significantly more, you may need a bit more protein in your system. You can do this by adding an egg or a portion of beans, lentils, pea or chickpeas to your daily eating plan
3. Add legumes or an egg to your breakfast
If you find you’re moving significantly more, you may need a bit more protein in your system. You can do this by adding an egg or a portion of beans, lentils, pea or chickpeas to your daily eating plan. By doing this, you are giving your body a nutritious boost which will help you stave off the munchies later in the day.
4. Rest and recovery
When you are training, you put your body through mild trauma that results in it going into shock. I know how silly that sounds, but that is exactly what happens. You do need to rest and recover from training, and that means taking a break from the gym and getting enough sleep.
In order for you to make the most of your weight-loss goals, you need to take the time to let your body heal.
