Life can be fast. Very fast. And sometimes, fitness can take 2nd priority. Or 3rd. Or 4th. Or it may completely fall off.
But hey! You still want to be fit right? You want that hot bod that will make the opposite sex swoon. Well, honestly, I can’t promise a hot bod without any sacrifice at all, but I can promise you a healthy, fit look if you follow what I’m about to tell you.
- Step 1- Stop all sugar.
Health is made in the kitchen. But if you can’t spend hours cooking healthy food and have to depend on takeouts more often than not, this will go a long way in helping you cut fat.
Sugar that we consume these days is all processed sugar that does nothing but drastically increase insulin levels in the body. And insulin, triggers fat deposition. It’s simple math; stop sugar and you will stop unwanted fat deposition in your mid-section (hey that rhymed!).
- Step 2- Fruits!
It’s hard to eat vegetables raw. But all fruits are eaten raw. Have a banana while travelling, an orange while taking a break at work, a glass of mixed fruit juice on your way back home. Fruits have natural sugars that will keep your insulin in control, and it keeps your stomach full so you won’t be tempted to eat another candy bar or that packet of chips.
- Step 4- Water, my friend.
Drink 3 litres of water in a day. Period.
Why? It keeps you full. It increases metabolism. It regulates body temperature. It regulates ion concentration in your body that will eventually keep you fit enough to work, play and whatever else it is that you want to do.
- Step 5- Try this.
This is a exercise routine that I always do when I’m travelling, or am pressed for time. It takes exactly 10 minutes (including warm up and cool down). Give it a shot, and come back and tell me if you don’t find it effective.
It’s not a replacement for a proper workout, but it’ll certainly keep you in shape, these 4 steps.
