5 SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE STEPS THAT WILL HELP YOU STAY FIT.

by Parker R. Brody

The world has become so fast for everyone that it has become a task to take out time for oneself. The expectations are huge and everyone wants to deliver. Fitness, nutrition, quality of life and peace of mind takes a backseat in such a situation. One might think that all these factors are not a very important part of one’s life and do not have any long term effects. You are absolutely wrong in thinking like that because the quality of work is a direct result of so many aspects in which a healthy mind and a healthy body matter the most. It is not humanly possible to deliver mind blowing services when there is no balance in living. Fitness is one of the most basic aspects in life that needs to be taken care of for two major reasons. One is that fitness is absolutely essential for a healthy long life and it definitely has short term effects and can directly have an effect on your output. Here is a list of simple tips that can help your fitness journey take off in the most organic manner.

MIND THE PORTIONS.

Fitness of the body is governed by two major factors. One is what you eat and second is the kind of workouts you are doing. To be fit you do not have to give up on your favourite things, you just have to control the portions. How simple and easy is that? You do not have to make any drastic changes nor do you need to leave any favourite food. Just controlling the portions and eating frequently will do the trick.

ALWAYS INCLUDE FIBRE IN YOUR DIET.

Including fibre in your diet has so many benefits that one cannot even begin to imagine.

Having less calories, lowering blood sugar and cholesterol levels, regulating bowel movements are some of the many advantages that make consumption of fibre so important for someone who wants to be fit. In addition to helping in achieving the right weight and helps in living a long, healthier life.

INCLUDE HEALTHY PROTEIN IN YOUR DIET.

Protein takes much more time to digest and in the process calories also get burnt. Consuming a protein diet is fulfilling and does not make you feel hungry too quickly. It helps in building muscle unlike consumption of carbohydrates that convert into fats if not consumed during the metabolic process. Protein diets are also known to improve metabolism and lower blood pressure levels. 

USE SUBSTITUTES IN PLACE OF HIGH CALORIE FAVOURITES.

There are so many things that are super tasty but at the same time a source of a lot of calories. These foods can be consumed occasionally but not too often because consumption of lots of calories is an unhealthy habit. The idea here is to follow a healthy but simple to follow routine that does not make it look like an effort. So instead of totally giving up on your favourite foods opt for similar substitutes. If you love ice cream, switch to frozen yogurt or use artificial sweeteners. It is not about sacrificing but staying fit and doing so easily. 

TWO FIFTEEN MINUTE BRISK WALKS TWICE DAILY.

Owing to a busy lifestyle people think that working out is the last thing they can think about in this world. Even if you are short on time, plan two brisk walks twice a day of about fifteen minutes. These can be easily made into a habit without having to alter major plans. Brisk walks twice a day will definitely help your metabolism to improve and help you in staying fit. 

These are some of the most simple but definitely helpful  steps that can help you to stay without making a major change in your lifestyle.
