FITNESS AND NUTRITION TIPS
- Something is better than nothing. Studies shows that one day a week of total body strength training gives you 70% of the benefits of an individual who did the same routine three times a week. Also, as little as 1 hour of cardio per week has been shown to reduce heart disease.
- It’s good to be a little sore after a work out; if you’re not, it may be a sign that your muscles have adapted to the workout you’re doing.
- It’s a combination of efficient nutrition and exercise that will result in the greatest benefit, not simply excessive exercise.
- Want a healthier heart? Start Walking… give your heart the charge it requires for at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes!
- Resistance training is important because lean muscles are important for weight loss it will boost your metabolism.
- It is important to eat at regular intervals, ideally every 3-5 hours. This helps to keep blood sugar levels stable and the metabolism active. Skipping meals or reducing your calorie intake does not help control weight in the long run.”
- Balance is key! Eating a balanced, varied diet with adequate protein and carbohydrates will enhance training sessions and workouts.
- Water is not just important for flushing out the kidneys and helping to eliminate toxins from your body, but it helps you feel full on less food.
- Take a multivitamin each morning. A recent survey by the American National Food Council found that not one person of the 21,500 people surveyed got their optimum recommended daily amount of vitamins.
- Limit liquid calories. One soda can add 150 to 200 calories to your daily tally. Have a few glasses throughout the day and you’re talking about enough extras to make the difference in weight loss or gain. Even lemonade and iced tea (if sweetened with sugar) can add up. Stick to water, diet soda or another calorie-free beverage.
