Dos and Don’ts on Getting in Shape
Some people are naturally skinny, while others have to work for every meal. But between restrictive diets and over-exercising, getting in shape can be a daunting endeavour. And, while you’re at it, you’ll probably want some tips on how to avoid getting in over your head. The Fit Camps were was your body has getting shape already.
Expect the results when in overnight games.
Of course, you want to lose weight. Lifting weights is good for you, has various health benefits, and helps you build muscle. But as you work out and improve your fitness, it’s normal to want results. After all, you want to be able to lift heavier weights, run faster, and do more reps, right? But it takes time to get there. So, I didn’t expect overnight results. Take time to work up to a full workout, and don’t try to lift more than you can handle.
You’ve probably heard the phrase “slow and steady wins the race,” and while that’s certainly true, so are other idioms, like “the early bird gets the worm” or “patience is a virtue.” When it comes to weight loss, slow and steady isn’t the business model, it’s the customer promise. The weight loss industry is built on the idea that you can lose weight quickly and with little effort. And in an ideal world, this would work. But like most things, it isn’t that simple.
Don’t fall for every fad diet.
We sure do love fad diets. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, another one pops up promising quick and easy weight loss. While fad diets are trendy, they aren’t always the best choice. They may help you lose weight initially, but more often, they lead to significant weight regain as your body adjusts to its new diet. When it comes to healthy weight loss, fad diets are the fastest way to start gaining weight again. Fad diets don’t work.
A diet fad will always pop up, promising you will lose weight if you follow their regimens. Whether it’s drinking green juices, only eating cabbage soup, or cutting out carbs, there are fad diets galore. They’re often low in carbs and high in protein, which some claim can help increase metabolism. But, like any fad diet, how good are they? And how can people lose weight if they can’t eat?
Don’t starve yourself.
If you’re trying to lose weight, you may have heard of the popular “diet” known as “keto.” The keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat diet that emphasizes foods that are high in fat, such as butter, fattier cuts of meat, and avocados. It’s based on what’s known as “ketosis,” which is basically your body’s natural ability to burn stored fat for energy. So, in theory, you can lose weight by starving yourself. But is that really a good idea? So, you’ve decided that you want to do your best to keep the weight off. You’ve read countless articles and watched hundreds of YouTube videos about weight loss. You’ve tried counting calories, counting macros, and tracking your intake. You have cut back drastically on carbs, eaten more fruits, vegetables, and lean protein, and taken extra steps to increase your heart rate and reduce stress.
