Your lifestyle, your quirk
I am constantly writing about the importance of exercise, but I get that not everyone has the time or money to do so. For some people, their work schedule just won’t allow it. Or they might have a tolerable work schedule, but they might also have kids and pets and a spouse that require lots of love and attention. Finally, you might just not have the $50 to join a gym each month. Regardless of your situation, there are still options to look and feel good! To begin, remember the golden rule of fitness – you are what you eat. Even if you never work out, you can still maintain a great physique with a healthy diet. You won’t be ripped, but you won’t be obese either. Even though it might be hard, do everything you can to cut everything from your diet that’s causing you to accumulate fat. This includes foods that are high in fat, such as fried food, burgers, pizza, desserts, chips and the like, but also foods that are high in empty calories, such as pop, candy, and other processed foods. Emphasize fruits and veggies and drink as much water as you possibly can. When water gets old, drink some juice here and there. You don’t have to be a rabbit, either. You can still eat lean meats, healthy pasta, and more, but you MUST be cognizant about what you put in your mouth.
Trust me on this one. Go to your doctor and find out how many calories you should aim for a day (no one can accurately figure this number out but a trained health professional) and stick to that. If it’s significantly lower than what you consume now, you will lose weight. That’s how it works! Some people lose weight by burning more calories, but you can just as easily do so by consuming less. It’s the same math. Not only will you look better, you’ll FEEL great, as your body will be purged of all the preservatives, grease, sugars and excess calories that are bringing you down. Beyond this, there’s no reason you can’t speed up the process. Try to be active when you can. Walk to work if you can. Take the stairs. Take a walk over lunch. Try to fit in a few squats every hour on the hour. Look into desk yoga or desk-ercise for numerous activities you can do to burn a few calories here and there. You may not burn as many as you would if you ran a mile, but you could likely burn quite a few over the course of a month.
