Do you want to start the Gym this week?
The training is something every athlete and those who are not so much of an athlete should take. This creates a perfect state to face competitions, and in the case of those of us who are simply mortals, to face everything regarding training.
You should know the importance of having some glycogen and be hydrated, because if you don’t have the right amount of energy stored in you you won’t train at your best.
So, ready to go to the Gym? Do you want to know how to burn fat and be fine?
EATING IS THE MOST CONVENIENT:
What an athlete or a person who wants to start training need is a diet rich in carbohydrates or sugar, Giving importance to starchy food without refining, rich in complex sugar, which are an important source of vitamins and minerals, it also reduces the total intake of fat and proteins.
Refined sugar must be reduced: cakes, cookies, candy… because they have a high number of calories and fat. You must not starve, since mood is more powerful than training.
What really matters is the amount of carbohydrates in the diet.
Food rich in carbohydrates:
- Whole grain cereal: rice
- Flour and derivatives: bread, spaghetti
- Nuts: fig, chestnut
- Fresh fruits
- Legumes: lentils, chickpeas
- Fresh or frozen vegetables: peas, lentils
It has been proved that it is ideal to consume around 500 g daily (or from 8 to 10 g per kilo you have) of carbohydrates, but this represents some problems: In a regular diet of 3000 Kcal only 300g of carbohydrates are consumed, so you by consuming a little bit more you can get up to the 500 g.
Nowadays, it is advisable that carbohydrates compound a 55-60% of the total amount of energy, so it is not a problem to eat to be healthy and in shape (except for hypocaloric diets).
Proteins must be a 10-15% of the daily calories, though there are differences regarding this. As long as you feel ok and they provide you with energy everything is fine. If you are a vegetarian you must eat your legumes, grains and take vitamins and aminoacids in different forms.
Being healthy and in good shape requires some changes, and what change can be better than a diet to lose weight?
However there are some factor that you should take into consideration before starting any kind of diet, by doing that you will realize that it is more than just something temporary, it is a lifestyle.
I share 5 tips to consider before starting a diet
Don’t let people tell you what to eat, go see a specialist
It is quite common to copy the neighbor’s diet, or a friend’s, or a relative’s. It is better to go to a nutritionist so he or she could tell us what is better for us. Remember that each body is different, and each person has different needs.
“Magical or miraculous” diets aren’t good and in most of the cases they don’t even work
You need to understand that these diets take out some basic foods; this could endanger our health and if you manage to lose some weight I guarantee you will gain it back… Yo-yo effect.
Exercising is essential in any diet
Exercising is the key to lose weight and transform the “excess” of fat into fiber and muscle.
Don’t skip meals
Skipping a meal might sound irrelevant, but the truth is that if you skip one, you will be anxious and you will end up eating whatever you can come across and you might destroy the effort you have been putting on.
Willpower is vital
“No one will do a diet for you.” Experts remark that it depends on each one of us if the diet works or fails. It is important that one be prepared for the sacrifices it will demand.
Nuestra vida es ocupada. Corres de un lado para el otro , te levantas temprano , desayunas , te montas en tu auto ,llegas al trabajo y cuando llega la noche , sólo quieres llegar a casa a comer,atender a los tuyos y caer en la cama.
¿Cuándo queda tiempo para ti ?
Las mujeres somos “Super Mujeres” diosas pero muy lejos del Olimpo , tratamos nuestro cuerpo como una máquina y no pensamos en nosotras.
Hacer ejercicio debe ser parte de nuestra rutina. Siempre propongo buscar algo que te guste , pues si no te gusta ejercitarte menos lo vas a hacer con alguna rutina aburrida.
Es por eso que haz leído en mi Instagram del Reto Figurella que hice…solo un mes.
SI , YO TAMBIEN SOY HUMANA. Sólo pude hacerlo un mes pues entre la viajadera, mi familia visitando y las fiestas de Diciembre , se me pasó el mes.
Pero estamos comenzando , tomemos el control y empecemos juntas nuestro viaje hacia el bienestar, o sigamos hacia adelante con con #MyFitJourney
