As we progress through life we can expect to enjoy the advantages that growing in age can provide us: wisdom, knowledge, a higher salary and better job security (hopefully). However, the Yin to this Yang that certainly irks many people is the deceleration of our […]
Obesity and the number of overweight people is increasing rapidly throughout society. Western cultures are heavier than they have ever been. With food so easily accessible to us and regulations of what goes in our food lessening more and more, it is no wonder our fast-paced, always in a hurry society are choosing the microwave dinner over a freshly cooked meal.
Unfortunately, the negative impact the modern-day diet and weight gain is having on us is reaching new heights and can even at times, be fatal. So, can weight gain affect your physical health? The answer is yes, weight gain does not only affect our physical appearance but what can happen on the inside is horrifying.
No matter what age we are, we all experience certain health issues that we may find awkward to discuss with other people. However, it is incredibly important to confide in a professional if you have any concerns regarding your health or wellbeing to avoid further […]
If like me you struggle with exercise and healthy eating it’s hard to try and keep motivated and on your fitness plan. Nights out, parties, and holidays can mean your programme goes out the window as you munch on pizza and pina coladas. Let’s look at other ways we can battle the bulge and tone up without sacrificing too much.
Cut the calories
Cutting your calorie intake by only 200 per day can make a big impression on your diet. Aim for low-fat high protein foods to gain lean muscle and a toned appearance. Try using food tracking apps such as My Fitness Pal which can illustrate your carbohydrate, protein and fat intake daily – it’s a good way to make you realise how much or how little you are eating each day. Weigh in weekly, add pictures to track your progress and download tasty recipes for inspiration. There are many recipes books and websites where you can find tasty recipes that will help you keep within your calorie range. Smoothies and slimming milkshakes can act as meal replacements for a lunch or dinner. If you wish to achieve a substantial weight loss consult your doctor or a professional for expert advice.
You don’t need an expensive gym pass for this one. Use household items such as tins of beans or try buying some second-hand kettle bell weights. Whatever you use, simple exercises each night can flatten abs, tone arms and take inches off your hips. You can easily download a programme or techniques from Instagram or Pinterest to follow – try and switch it up to something different each week though to keep different muscle groups working. Five exercises done in 3-4 repetitions 4 times a week can sculpt your body. The heavier the weight the more resistance your body has to put out, therefore, achieving quicker results. Don’t forget to fuel your body before and after your at-home workout – help muscles recover quicker with a protein shake and low-calorie snack such as rice cakes loaded with a scraping of peanut butter.
Book a fat reducing treatment
It’s the quick and easy way to get rid of fat fast and can be beneficial if you have a special occasion coming up. You won’t need to take a long time off work but depending on what area you want to target or if it’s an all over reduction you would like, carefully research reputable clinics. For example, new to the market is BodyTite™ from London’s Snowberry Lane clinic. This procedure effectively reduces surplus fat using advanced technology and is available for all ages and male and females. This non-evasive procedure is expertly done under local anaesthetic. Skin can be left feeling much tighter and less saggy after treatment, contouring the body and showing off your shape. This treatment is suitable for a number of areas on the body including hips, abdomen, upper arms and tricky areas that bother everyone – knees, back and thighs.
Most of people think it is way easier to keep up even with a strict diet than to work out on a daily basis mainly because it is harder due to the lack of time or just because of laziness. If we don’t combine those two elements of effective weight losing, the effect might be a slightly different or just anticipated in time. Why? Obviously, we are not the only ones to be bothered by this question. The Japanese scientists also decided to discover the truth.
