A few tips to achieve the desired figure

It is not difficult to achieve the desired figure if we pay attention to the main factors that affect our body. The most important of them are a healthy diet, physical activity, sufficient water intake and quality sleep, which lower the risk of diseases and help us achieve a beautiful look.

Healthy diet

Priority is given to healthy breakfast and lunch. Eating late is not among the healthiest habits. It turns out that it is best to take the main amount of calories before 15:00. An important part of the diet is not to skip meals and to eat food more often during the day, but in smaller quantities. Complete nutrition requires the consumption of a variety of food. The diet should include foods from different food groups. It is recommended to consume more vegetables and fruits, fish (several times a week) and red meat (once a week).

Physical activity

Apart from diet, exercise is one of the main ways to get in shape. Walking is one of the best exercises for weight loss. It’s easy to fit walking into your daily routine. To add more steps, try walking on your lunch break, take the stairs at work, or take your dog for an extra walk. The rule of thumb is to take 10,000 steps a day, which equates to 6-8 km. There are also many other types of training from which we can lose weight: pilates, jogging, swimming, strength training, yoga, etc. Let’s not forget that we need to burn more calories than we take in to lose weight.

If you’re trying to lose weight, the amount of sleep you get can be just as important as your diet and exercise. Sleep may be the missing factor for many people struggling with extra kilos.

Here are a few reasons why sleep is important for weight loss:

  • Insufficient sleep increases appetite – this is probably caused by the effect of sleep on two important hunger hormones – leptin and ghrelin.
  • Lack of sleep reduces energy, stamina and strength.
  • Lack of sleep leads to central obesity.

The less sleep you get, the more weight you gain, and the more weight you gain, the harder it is to fall asleep.

Water consumption is associated with easier weight loss. Being well hydrated increases the feeling of satiety, especially if you drink a glass of water before a meal. Increased fluid intake helps flush excess sodium from the body, which reduces the feeling of bloating and discomfort. Water also eliminates toxins from the body.
Here are some tips to help you increase your water intake:

  • Drink 1 glass of water with each meal
  • Carry a bottle with you
  • Drink more water during physical activity
  • Eat more soups, vegetables and fruit with a high water content
