Have you ever looked down at your belly and wondered what happened? How you could have let yourself go so much? You’re not the only one! It’s too easy in today’s overly processed world to overeat, lack time to exercise, and just generally lose control of your daily routine. But, I’m here to bring you the good news. Getting back in shape, burning the fat, and looking good are all within your reach, using these 3 simple tips.
Tip #1 – Breakfast is a Must.
Your car can’t run on empty and neither can your body. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, not simply for energy, but for burning fat as well. As odd as it may sound, rolling out of bed and eating first is very beneficial to your health. The longer you wait to eat in the morning, the closer your body gets to diving into survival mode and shutting down your metabolism.
Tip #2 – Water isn’t just for bathing!
You don’t drink enough water. No one drinks enough water. Studies have shown that many Americans don’t even drink 1/3rd of the recommended daily intake of water. It’s astounding really when you consider that 70% of your body is made up of water, but it is the one thing people forget about. Coffee, Tea, Soda, or whatever else you drink, simply can’t satisfy your body and keep it running like water. Double your water intake and you would be surprised the result!
Tip #3 – Cardio is a must!
There may not be a lot of time in the day, but you can’t afford to spend it on your butt. Even if you can only find time to walk a mile, get out and go! One of the best ways to get the exercise in is to walk your dog, or a baby in a stroller. Not only is the family getting out for some time together, or the dog for some play time, but you are getting some much needed exercise. Walking is a great place to start, but if you can get up the courage, thirty minutes of running can make an amazing change for your body.
It can be tough to get the ball rolling, but once you get started, you might be surprised how much better it will make you feel. By using simple changes in your life, such as getting a solid breakfast, drinking more water, and walking 20 or 30 minutes a day, you will feel younger and look younger in no time. Just keep your nose to the grindstone and don’t give up, you’ll be there before you know it!
