Eating healthy means changing your lifestyle. It means changing habits that are ingrained in your subconscious. It is not an easy thing to do, but it can be done. The secret here is to take small baby steps at first, until you are confident enough.
The first step for me was to stop eating sugar and sugar containing products. I replaced it with honey. Now I eat a lot of honey, I am trying to reduce it as well, but honey is much, much healthier than sugar. I just decided to stop eating sugar one day, and now 180 days later I still live by that decision. For me it is easier this way, for others it is easier if they reduce the amount gradually. First trying to eat less of it, and gradually they will keep reducing the quantity until they stop eating it all together.
After I was done with sugar I put my eyes on white bread and white pasta. I replaced it with whole wheat brown bread and pasta. At first I could tell the difference, but now I don’t even remember what white bread tastes like.
After that I decided to add a workout program in my schedule. I always wanted to know how to lose belly fat. From my experience this is the easiest and healthiest way to do it. To gradually improve your eating habits and having an active lifestyle. You don’t need some extreme workout program, or a gym subscription. A few stretching moves in the morning will help you more than you can imagine. You will lose belly fat and you will live a more healthier lifestyle.
Having more energy and being more happy are two nice bonus rewards. You will also have more confidence in yourself because you will know that you can accomplish anything if you set your mind to it. Start improving your life today. Take one tiny step!
Are you finally fed up with being overweight and out of shape and ready to get in the gym and get fit for good? If you want to see the results you are looking for, it is also important that you address your diet. In reality it is virtually impossible to see any significant results from working out without eating right too. In fact, most health experts agree that 80% of your results will be caused by your diet. It simply is not possible for most people to work out hard enough to compensate for a bad diet. So, if you want to see the results you are looking for, eating right is key.
Stay away from fad diets and instead stick to something that is balanced that you can live with in the long run. Don’t be tempted to follow diets that require you to eliminate entire food groups, because research shows that this rarely works in the long run. Rather, eat fruit, vegetables, lean protein and whole grains. Studies have shown that it is especially important to get enough protein in your diet, but that you also need to avoid getting too much fat. One way to add additional protein is to choose low-glycemic carbohydrates that also contain protein. As an example, quinoa is a great way to get protein in your diet without extra fat. Try using it in place of white rice in your favorite stir fry recipe.
To see the quickest possible results, it is important that you weight train and do aerobic exercise. In a 12 week study that looked at middle age women, those who only walked saw no results, but those who walked and did strength training experienced lower body fat, lower blood sugar and a decreased waist circumference. The key to long term weight loss is focusing on your diet and including both aerobics and weight training in your plan.
