“Fitness should not be considered an extra chore, it should be thought of as a way of life!” We get that this statement is easier said than done. It may seem like such a herculean task to get your butt moving into shape but trust us, the fruits of your hard earned labor will be more than worth it.
Break your binge rut with these easy-to-incorporate tips –
Contrary to what you may think, eating light meals every 2 hours will not only improve your metabolic rate but also increase your body’s ability to burn fat faster.
Measure Your Portions
Switch all your large plates to smaller snack sized ones. Eating in a smaller plate will ensure you eat less quantity of food. Drinking a glass of water before your meals will also help to alleviate hunger.
Keep A Food Diary
Enter your entire food intake into a diary. This will force you to calculate every single calorie that you put in your body as there are things we snack on during the day that we don’t usually consider “food” but they end up contributing massively to our daily calorie intake.
Forgive yourself for sinful indulgences every once in a while, we’re all human! Switching suddenly from a high calorie, junk diet to a much healthier one is always going to be a hard transition. Give yourself time to adapt the routine.
Try to squeeze in 3-4 days of exercise in your initial weeks and start with slow easy moves. We can guarantee once you see your own body changing for the better, you’ll be hooked.
