Eating healthy and fitness go hand and hand, VITAGIA Fitness suggest a well-balanced diet is a crucial part of getting fit and slimming down but you need to ensure that your diet contains all the necessary nutrients you need to fuel your daily routine. Eating less is never the answer. If you want to slim down and get fit you’ll need to start eating right. Here are 5 simple tips that you can follow to get a stay fit.
Go For Whole Grains
Whole grain food is high in starchy carbohydrates which are very important for a healthy diet. Many people believe that whole grain foods contribute to weight gain but they provide relatively fewer calories per gram. You should try to add at least one starch whole grain food like potatoes, pasta or bread with each meal but take note of what you’re cooking or service these with to prevent raising the calorie count.
Reduce Saturated Fat Intake
Contrary to popular belief, Fat isn’t the reason why you get fat. Fat is an important part of every diet which is why more often than not people that tend to start a liquid or smoothie diet end up gaining back all the weight they lose. There are two types of fat you saturated and unsaturated fats. Saturated fats can contribute to weight gain which is why they should be limited to 30g a day. Saturated fats can be found in hard cheese, cakes, and sausages which you should try to avoid eating in high volumes.
Breakfast Is a Necessity
Go ahead and ask any fitness professional or nutritionist about what the most important thing they recommend to lose weight and they’ll tell you to eat a filling and healthy breakfast. Eating breakfast is the most important thing you can do to start living a healthier life. When we say breakfast we don’t mean last night’s supper. Make yourself a proper breakfast or go with the staple toast with eggs.
Keeping yourself hydrated very well is also a part of eating healthy and being fit, but VITAGIA Fitness suggest that you not stay hydrated with
soda, not with beer, not with iced tea but simple water. Drinking water is an extremely important part of keeping your body functioning in an optimal state in homeostasis and aids in almost every aspect of bodily function. It’s highly recommended that you intake at least six to eight 12-ounce glasses of water a day or more if you work out.
Eat Small & Often
VITAGIA Fitness suggest rather than eating 3 large meals a day, you should opt to eat food every three hours in smaller amounts. If we don’t eat for 3 hours, the level of stress hormone cortisol rise which signals the body to store fat in the abdominal region. This is the reason why people that skip meals have the highest cortisol levels! Eating small portions of food at intervals of 3 hours aids you in staying active, slimming down and feel better overall.
