Sharing is Caring:
Combining Fitness & Health
It is important to know that fitness and heath are two different things, they sure are related, but they are two different realities. People make mistake of getting the two as the same thing, but people who actually take both along tend to have a longer and happier life than he others.
If you do a lot of fitness exercises, that doesn’t mean that you’re living healthy if you don’t eat the proper food. Only doing some exercises doesn’t help either. You should do the right ones and do them correctly. A good way to do them is following a program. One which is quite popular these days is the old school new body by Steve Holman. I won’t go in to that now. There you’ll find an in-depth review and he actually is following that program, so he can get the better inputs then I can.
Healthy life is different than being physically fit because you can develop a healthy lifestyle by just eating right, but your body and physique might not be correct. For desirable results the two have to be combined together.
You must know that it is extremely important to maintain a healthy weight which is according to the body mass index (BMI). If you are doing this, then you have to eliminate your favourite foods.
Lose the weight
The body is known as the natural fuel burning machines that usually utilizes the unwanted fat and makes energy from it. When it does that, the unwanted fat can be eliminated by doing exercise on regular basis. At first, you have to begin with eating healthy diet which is full of organic fruits and vegetables, along with lean meats, healthy grain, and nuts.
You have to at first decide the calorie intake of per day, which should be based on your current weight. It is said that women should be taking between 1300 to 1800 calories per day and men should be taking between 1500 to 2500 according to their BMI.
You have to involve yourself in physical exercise in order to accelerate your body’s ability to put off the weight. If you are obese or excessively overweight then you must consult your physician.
When you are on your weight loss journey, it is okay to avoid the scale because standing on the scale can usually make a person depressed. It can also be motivating, but in this case it can be a cause of disappointment. When you have started your journey through diet and exercising, you can get rid of the scale for a while. When you are losing the weight, it is possible that your body has excess water rather than the fat that can show up on the scale. The scale at this point will not give you the accurate results.
Also, when you are exercising and working out, you should know that your body is turning the fat into muscles while eliminating it. So it is possible that you weigh more, but look thin.
You can create a great weight loss program for yourself by just combining health and fitness together. But if you plan on choosing one out of the two, the results will be undesirable. You must plan on sticking to a goal that you have made for yourself.
