The Truth About Fitness
I am always being asked: “what’s the best way to lose weight” “how can I tone up and build muscle” etc. So I thought I would give you a brief overview on what I think…
The media in particular portray a false sense of accuracy regarding fitness advice. They are always writing diet advice which in the long term will cause you more harm than good – and will not help you lose weight and certainly won’t make you fit. For example, I was reading an article that stated if you eat a certain piece of fruit every day for 1 month you will lose 1 stone. What rubbish!
I am going to tell you what’s good and what’s not.
Why people publish these awful tips and advice is beyond me… like drop 2 dress sizes in one month. For those of us who work 9 to 5 this is just about impossible. What you can do in a month is, get a good level of fitness and the foundations for losing your weight. Start to eat healthily and eat the correct things to have a well-balanced diet. We all know what foods are good for us and what are not. Don’t do these “diets” you see online or in magazines, trust me they are not good. Eat healthily – have a good amount of protein in your diet, include lots of fruit and vegetables and carbohydrates but ensure you don’t overload on carbs. Your diet starts in the supermarket – if you buy junk, you will eat junk! If you don’t buy it, then you won’t eat it. A good idea is to plan healthy meals for the week, it only takes a few minutes to write down what you are going to have. Ensure you are getting the essentials for each meal, ensure you are not going to over load your plate with carbohydrates and having a mixed and colourful plate. Another major point to consider is your portion size – cut down the amount of food, don’t overfill your plate. It’s all in the mindset – you don’t need it – have a sensible amount.
