You only need to have some basic understanding of exercise and having a healthy diet.
When you first start exercising, it is recommended that you choose an activity that you like. For example, if you like jogging, then go for a jog in the park, or on a running track. If you like lifting weights or dancing, then you should go sign up for a gym membership or a dance class. If you like sports in general, then you should do those sports that you like. When choosing a physical activity that you like, you are more likely to stick with it and make it a lifestyle.
Once you have made exercising a habit, the next step is to then take your diet into account. Start by choosing healthier foods and limiting your intake of sweets, unhealthy fats, fried foods, high sodium/salt content foods, etc. Be mindful of portion sizes, making sure that you’re satisfied after your meal but not too full. Once there’s a general understanding of what’s healthy to eat, achieving your dream body isn't too far off.
Tips on how to maintain your figure;
2. Weight training for 30 to 45 minutes, 5 to 6 times per week. This will help strengthen your body and increase muscle mass. The more muscle mass you have in your body, the more calories you burn on a daily basis. Weight training can also help your posture and achieve a balanced figure.
3. Diet; you should have protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats in your meals. Having a healthy and balanced diet will replenish your body and fuel your muscles.
4. Rest; aim to sleep for around 8 to 10 hours per night, be in bed by 22:00 to 24:00. During sleep our body produces a growth hormone that helps our muscles grow.
Lastly, if you have a goal to change yourself, don’t wait, don’t make any more excuses to why you can’t. With the right knowledge and understanding that I’ve touched upon in this article, I believe that some may find it helpful and get one step closer to achieving their goals.
