Being active makes you healthy and stronger. It is not just for people who have a weight problem but it should be for everyone who wants to stay fit and healthy. There is a lot that you can do such jogging or walking every morning, play basketball, football or any other sport alone or with friends but if you wants to have muscles and look lean, you have to take it a bit more serious and join a gym.
People workout for 3 reasons:
First Reason is that you feel that you are overweight or you are really overweight so the only way to lose weight or those extra pounds will be by working out.
Second Reason is that you feel you are underweight or skinny so you want to workout to gain some muscles thus you will gain weight on scale and will make you eat more healthy food.
Third Reason is you just do it out of boredom or for fun to stay in shape and fit.
Exercising or working out doesn’t have to be sweaty and tiring to help you lose weight, on the contrary the best way is the by doing long timing exercise for example walking for an hour “ not shopping walking so don’t be sneaky 🙂 ” its between walking and jogging or if you prefer calling it walking fast it would be easier to explain, the reason is its better cause you keep using your body fat to produce the power that makes you do that exercise for a long time.
Here are some benefits of exercising:
1. It is the easiest way to maintain and improve your health and decrease the chances of diseases.
2. Studies have shown that it makes you feel happier and increases your self esteem preventing you from falling into depression or anxiety.
3. An active lifestyle makes the person live longer than a person who doesn’t.
If you haven’t done any exercises before or you did and you stopped for a long time you should start gradually as your body wont be to take the shock of exercising for long periods or heavy weights at one go, for example if you will start jogging you should start by warming up for about 10 to 15 minutes then jog for 2 minutes then start your general workout if you will workout and relax the next day, then the day after the next day you should increase 1 minute in jogging and so on or how ever you plan it just take it gradually but just start 🙂
Don’t forget to consult a nutritionist for a health way of eating your meals or if you are on a diet then plan everything right from the beginning so that you don’t get lazy later on and stop everything, if you don’t want to go to a diet doctor or a nutritionist then do your research and plan your daily food plan.
A good diet shouldn’t forbid any food from being eaten, i don’t believe that certain food can make you gain weight unless you are eating a whole bunch of it which will be wrong to do but then again any excessive food intake from any kind will lead to gaining weight 🙂 i always say eat what you want to eat but with a reasonable portion, you are not eating for your self and your family, you are just eating for your self.
If you cant control the amount of food you eat there is a trick you can do as temporarily solution, after you fill your plate with the food you will eat you can divide it into two plates, eat one andleave the other to eat after 2 or 3 hours this way you will have 2 meals instead of one and it will increase your metabolism cause your body will know that its going to get food regularly instead of 1 time meal and it will not store as much fat as before, its better to eat more meals a day like 5 or 6 meals, 3 main courses “ Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner ” and snacks in between, this way you will eat every 2-3 hours and your body won’t go into hibernation mode and start storing fats.
Well i think that’s all for now, hope you enjoyed reading.
