Aside from looking absolutely great, health is a very important reason why someone should workout and eat healthy. When working out you begin to feel more energetic throughout the day and you'll notice that you will be in a better mood. Here are a few tips to help you on your journey to your new body!
We know that most people think that eating healthy involves just eating vegetables and nothing that tastes good, but that is actually a myth. There are tons of healthy recipes out there that will help you get the body you've always wanted and taste great! Some of the simple healthy things to eat are egg whites, chicken, turkey, broccoli, cauliflower, beans and many more.
You can also use a calorie counter to help you with your food intake. This will help you understand which foods are healthy and which are not. A great app that we recommend for this is MyFitnessPal.
The main reason to prepare your meals is because you should be eating about 5-6 times a day in smaller portions rather than eating 3 times a day in larger portions. You can adjust this more or less depending on your schedule and what works best for you. Preparing your meals will also save you tons of time the following day so that you can carry on with your busy day and still keep to your new healthy lifestyle.
Try and take the stairs instead of an elevator, instead of deciding to watch a movie, try and go for a walk etc. The point is to aim to be as active as possible throughout your day without it interfering with your life. This should not be too hard, but always remember that even the little things make a difference.
If you want to tone your body, then you must be active and exercise if possible throughout the week. This does not mean that you must exercise everyday, but the more exercise you can do, the better. We recommend exercising at least 3 times a week such as Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This should not be too much that it interferes with your schedule, but enough that you will start to see changes with your body fairly quickly.
