There are many reasons why we may decide to work on getting an ideal body, there are health benefits to it, we may be going on holiday and want to look good when on the beach, or there may be a wedding coming up and you need to fit into the clothes that you want to wear. When you search the internet you will find results in thousands on what diet is best, how to quickly gain muscle mass, which exercises are best, and it can get very confusing. So in order to help you we have selected the best 7 healthy tips to get your ideal body.
The media always tells us in one way or another that exercise is the best thing to help you lose excess weight and tighten up muscles. But if it is something that you haven’t done for a while, then it can be difficult to get started. So all you need to do is simply extend what you do every day; walk. Research is now starting to show that walking is actually better than most other exercises. It burns calories, you use a high number of muscles doing it, and you get a cardio workout which can help against heart disease. All you need to do is walk for 20 to 30 minutes every day, at a pace quicker than normal. Do not stop, and if you can, include a hill, all the better.
So many diets exist, but you should use the easiest one of them all; The Common Sense Diet. If you see a piece of meat with fat on it, remove it. If something you want to eat is known for putting weight on people, don’t eat it. You do not have to cut out everything, but halving your usual portions of ‘bad stuff’ will help you.
Do not drink fizzy or high energy drinks, even if they say they are sugar free. If you need milk in coffee or tea then use fat free milk. You may try liquid diet for weight loss.
When sitting down or standing up, make sure your back is as straight as possible, pull your shoulders back, and this can make you look taller and slimmer.
If you have a lot of excess weight then consider liposuction to remove it and give you a head start, but if you are going to that expense and risk then you certainly need to diet and exercise afterwards to prevent it coming back.
Pull It In
No matter where you are, or what you are doing, pull your stomach in. This helps to strengthen the muscles in that area, and after a few weeks they will start to show signs of tightening up naturally.
Everyone by now should know the risks of smoking, but did you know that the toxins in it poison the skin? Your skin will lose its elasticity so it hangs off you, and the color will be a lot paler than what it should be. The good news is that if you stop smoking now, your skin can look much better in as little as 2 weeks.
