7 Ways To Transform Your Body Today
Fitness is not attained with a single lifestyle change. If you really want to create a fit physique, you may require wholesale lifestyle changes. Use these 7 tricks to start getting fit now!
1. Have scrambled egg whites rather than whole eggs
We don't buy in to the hysteria over whole eggs and cholesterol; in fact, the yoke contains important nutrients. But you can cut calories by omitting the yolk. So instead of eating 3-or-4 whole eggs, try scrambling one whole egg with five egg whites. By doing this, you'll get more quality protein first thing in the morning.
2. Drink green tea with Stevia rather than gourmet coffee
If you habitually start your morning with a little treat from Starbucks, reconsider your order. Rather than asking the barista with the headset and Belichick attitude for some sugar-laden coffee swirled with flavored syrup and topped with whipped cream, order green tea sweetened with Stevia.
Depending on the particular coffee you were ordering before, replacing it could slash your calorie intake tremendously. Many of these beverages contain more than 400 calories
3. Switch from regular soda to diet
Nothing damages your sound diet plan more than regular soda. Devoid of real nutrition, this beverage packs nothing but a sugar-coated sucker punch.
If you must swill soda, go diet instead. They contain artificial sweeteners but won't skyrocket your blood glucose levels into pre-diabetic fireworks.
4. Do '10' during commercial breaks
Rather than leaving the couch to rummage through the pantry during a commercial, do ten reps of an exercise. It's the best way for a couch potato to peel off excess instead.
You can do push-ups, sit-ups, lunges, bodyweight squats, lying leg raises or chair dips - whatever you're in the mood for. By the time the show is over, you'll have strengthened some major muscle groups and provided a slight boost to your metabolic rate.
5. Eat real fruit rather than drinking fruit juice
If you start your day with a glass of fruit juice alongside your cereal or toast, switch to eating whole fruit. Sure, fruit juice comes from whole fruit, but it lacks fiber and contains too many calories for someone who wants to improve their body composition.
Go for a whole apple, orange or a cup of berries for a good dose of fiber as well as a high amount of vitamins and minerals to promote overall good health.
6. Sub a protein shake for a fruit smoothie
Fruit smoothies are probably a wiser choice than milkshakes; they are calorie-dense gut bombs. Opt for a protein shake instead. This change will help you meet your daily protein requirement, something many people struggle to do.
Plus, if you just mix up one scoop of protein powder with a cup of water, you'll save calories as well. Just don't toss a boatload of fruit in there along with the protein powder - or you're back in smoothie terrain.
7. Perform a simple circuit in the gym
A workout program can kick-start your fit lifestyle, but don't limit yourself to cardio. Jogging is so 1976. For the best results, pair cardio training with basic resistance training.
Doing a simple circuit is ideal for a beginner and will gradually allow you to adjust to weight training stimulus. To begin, perform 10 reps each of squats, push-ups, lunges, bench dips, bicep curls and lying leg raises; rest for 30 seconds and then repeat twice more. This 10-minute routine is a great way to build a boldtrength foundation..
