Health tips

On this page I’ve put together some very simple tips that can be done to help you reach your fitness goals.

OUR GUIDE TO A BETTER YOU

When most people hear the word exercise they immediately associate it with either running or going to the gym and spending an hour working out , and immediately make excuses why they cant do it. iv heard it all from, I have no time to exercise, I’m always tired, it’s expensive to eat healthy, I have bad genes and the list could go on and on . so on this page I put together a number of things you could do to stay healthy while your going about your daily life.

TAKE THE STAIRS

I know most people are probably thinking I know that, BUT DO YOU ACTUALLY DO IT? Taking the stairs could lead to you losing up to 5 lbs a year depending on how many time you encounter a stairs each day plus its the real StairMaster.

AVOID PROCESSED FOODS

What are processed foods? Well processed food could range from a variety of things. The basic definition of processed foods, are foods that have been altered from its original state. some example are: canned foods, frozen dinners, and anything with added sugar.

AVOID SUGAR

According to the USDA the average American consume over 135lbs of sugar a year. MOST PEOPLE CANT EVEN LIFT 135LBS. sugar will spike you insulin levels which will eventually lead to more fat storage.

AVOID DRINKING YOUR CALORIES.

Unless you’re planning on juicing raw fruits and vegetables. it’s not a good idea to drink anything that has a high calorie content because it makes it so easy to consume large amount of calories.

KEEP YOUR BODY HYDRATED.

Keeping your body hydrated is one of the most important things that you can do for your body. it enables your liver to properly function by reducing the toxins that your body has to get rid of. also most digestive enzymes are made up of a large amount of water.

CONTROL YOUR MOVEMENT DURING ANY EXERCISE

One of the first things I notice when I walk into a gym is the way people exercise. most people do what I like to call a 1 sided exercise meaning they have no control on the negative form( lowering the weights) of the exercise.
