Have you been trying to take the ‘crash diet route’ to your ‘weight loss destination’? Then, it’s high time you realised that there are healthier, more actionable ways of losing weight and staying slim than your grapefruit or cabbage soup diet.
If you want your weight reduction efforts to bear fruit without jeopardising your health, just make the following tweaks to your eating habits and exercise routine in Bondi.
Follow a balanced exercise regime with emphasis on HIIT
Keep your workout balanced by including cardio as well as strength training at Boot Camp Bondi Beach. Aerobic exercises like cycling and walking are very effective in burning up belly fat. Anaerobic exercises like lifting weights make your muscles well-toned and promote healthy loss of body weight.
High intensity interval training is the perfect choice not only for knocking off those extra pounds but also for keeping them at bay. In this method of training, you alternate intense anaerobic exercises like push-ups with less intense rest periods making it possible for you to burn calories at an increased rate both during and after workout.
Choose to eat green, light and varied
Prefer lighter alternatives like low-fat yogurt or skimmed milk all the time and look to load your plate with vegetables and fruits as often as possible.
Also, make sure that you always eat the right mix of foods. For example, start your lunch with a whole grain salad; follow it up with an avocado and finish it with a coconut chia seed pancake. The idea here is to go for a combination that balances your intake of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Watch your intake of liquids
Whether it’s the quantity of water you drink or the amount of wine you use in your cooking, the liquids that you consume play a huge role in furthering or hampering your progress in weight-shed.
While taking a glass of water half-an-hour before food reduces your hunger pangs and prevents overeating, keeping yourself hydrated through the day promotes digestion and speeds up metabolism.
In contrast, frequent consumption of alcohol, directly as a cocktail drink or indirectly as a food additive, contributes to your empty calories and deters your thinning efforts.
Have a nutritious breakfast
If you’re looking to thin down, breakfast is your most important meal of the day. This is so because eating a high-protein diet first thing in the morning makes you feel satiated and prevents you from splurging during the day. Hence, make it a point to include beans, nuts, legumes, eggs, etc. in your breakfast and quicken your journey to weight loss.
Since diets that promise instant results cut your daily calorie intake down to unrealistically low levels, nursing a false hope of sticking to them will not get you anywhere near your slimming goals. Remember that the ideal prescription for weight loss is healthy eating, regular exercise in Bondi and adequate sleep. So, be sensible; steer clear of fads and don’t let your hunger get the better of you!
