To help you make the journey easier, Brady Worster at Fhysical Elements Training has listed five tips for weight loss and good health. Keep reading to know what they are.
Tip #1: Drink plenty of water
To prevent dehydration, help you lose weight, and keep your body healthy, you need to drink adequate amounts of water. You need to drink at least half of your body weight in oz a day and add eight extra ounces a day for every fifteen minutes of sweat, from exercise and in general.
Tip #2: Track your food
For at least two weeks, monitor your food to get an idea of what amount of calories you are consuming. More importantly, you need to pay attention to the types of calories (such as fats, carbs, and proteins) you are consuming. There are a bunch of great apps for your phone to track your food and exercise. Awareness is your biggest success factor when it comes to your food intake, and noting will make you more aware of your diet than logging your food.
Tip #3: Avoid processed foods
The fresher the food, the better it is for your overall health. Eat the Rainbow. The more color you include in your diet from natural sources, the healthier it is for your body and the more nutrients you are going to consume. Avoid prepackaged food that may contain preservatives, shelf stabilizers, and added salt, sugar, and fat.
Tip #4: Exercise daily
Exercise regularly, even if you can only get in a ten to twenty-minute session. Aim for thirty minutes a day. Schedule it like one of your Zoom meetings and put it in your calendar. Get a personal trainer, in-person in a studio or gym, or one that calls you on a video call to show you how to workout at your home effectively and safely.
Tip #5: Get enough sleep
Six to eight hours of restful sleep is a must. Sleep will give your muscles time to recover and replenish you with new energy. Find out what time works best for your workout, to also help you sleep more soundly. Are you a morning, mid-day, or evening person? Test them all to see what suits your body best.
