We all want that killer body, and also in time for the summer beach season.
We try every diet out there, every weight loss programs for women, tried to workout every hour of the day but none of them has gotten us to that killer body.
Have no fear, try these 9 simple fitness and eating tips to help you get there in no time – just have to remember on how to move and on how to eat:
ON HOW TO MOVE
1. Do moves in threes
Any workout has three variables: weights, intensity, and volume. To keep your body guessing, focus on one variable per workout – increase the weight but lower the number of reps one day; lower your standard weight but add a set the next; use your standard weight but do more reps faster on another.
2. Don’t give up on the pullup
Pullups, which strengthen the lats, biceps, middle back, and shoulders, are an effective upper-body exercise. Can’t squeeze one out? Then do planks: Lie with your chest under a weight bar set to knee height on a squatting rack. Grab the bar with an overhand grip and, keeping your body in one line, bend your elbows and pull your chest toward the bar. Lower back to start; do 10 reps.
3. Row your boat
Before you strength train, spend 10 minutes on a rowing machine to get blood flowing to all the muscles and joints in your body. It’s better than a treadmill or a stationary bike because it engages your upper body and core, not just your legs.
4. Short-circuit your routine
Blast fat with a circuit that includes strength training and cardio: Do a set of push-ups, jump rope for a minute, do a set of squats, jump rope again; continue to alternate strength and cardio. You’re building muscle while keeping your heart rate high.
ON HOW TO EAT
5. Minimize refined carbs
Out: most breads, cookies, chocolate, white rice, nearly every cereal, honey, and anything with corn syrup or sugar. As soon as you swallow a refined carb, it starts to spike your blood sugar, which produces excess insulin, a hormone that can be responsible for holding on to fat stores.
6. Eat five times a day
That means three meals and two snacks: one between breakfast and lunch, and one between lunch and dinner. You’ll have a steady stream of energy; plus, less food more often isn’t as taxing on your digestive system as three big meals. Also, that five daily feedings stabilizes your blood sugar, so you won’t have crazy mood swings or hunger pangs.
7. Up your protein
Try a Zone-inspired diet – a balance of protein, complex carbs, and fat in every meal and snack–to protect against insulin overload. The benefit of high-quality protein, like chicken, turkey, and low-fat Greek yogurt: It contains amino acids, which help muscles recover after workouts.
8. Limit your liquids
Ditch juices, vanilla lattes, and sodas–all have unneeded sugar and calories. You drink for three reasons – if you’re thirsty, drink water; if you need stimulation, drink black coffee; if you want to take the edge off, choose a vodka martini or a similar non-mixed, simple drink. In other words, no mojitos.
9. Yes, that means diet soda, too
Although the science on the fake sweeteners used in diet sodas is still undecided, you should still not drink them. The sweeteners may elicit an insulin spike or, at the very least, psychologically prepare you for something sweet, but there are no calories to back the signal.
One last thing… you should try this 2-minute “after-dinner ritual” that burns up to 2 pounds of belly fat per day…
“All this by a 2-minute “after-dinner ritual?” I asked.
I met an old friend for lunch last month and I was super impressed with how good she looked.
She said, “It’s not so much about the “after-dinner ritual”, but more about how it gives you a regenerative form of deep sleep that is responsible for everything we need to dramatically increase our fat burning metabolism and improve our health and appearance.”
Even though I was skeptical, I’ve been struggling with my weight over the last few years, so I gave it a shot and watched the same video she did..
Well, it’s only a couple weeks later and you know what they say about how “you can’t transform your body overnight”…
They’re right – it actually took me 16 days to lose 22 pounds.
Imagine your body being beach ready before Memorial Day.
Imagine enjoying the foods you love: pasta, wine, or even a dessert — completely guilt-free.
And imagine feeling good and living your life without obsessing about every single calorie you eat…
All while knowing your health is being protected by one of the most powerful natural healing rituals ever discovered.
