Did you know that calorie consumption and management can either improve your health or worsen it? The basic truth is that your well-being is partly dependent on the proper management of your food intake and physical activities. The combination of these two activities is crucial for the maintenance, sustenance or improvement of health and life quality.
Most people don’t usually apply this fitness formula properly. In most cases, clients follow this formula in the opposite direction; instead of eating less and burning more, they rather eat more and burn less. Fitness instructions are simple and straight to the point, but it can be frustrating if they are not properly followed.
Here’s how to eat less:
- Engage in portion control by reducing your plate size.
- Eat foods that are less in calories, avoid foods that contain too much starch, fat, salt and so on.
- Go green, eat lots of vegetables and fruits because they will keep you full and healthy.
- Stay hydrated, drink plenty of water throughout the day.
- Never go hungry; eat regularly but eat the right foods moderately.
- Watch your food intake by eating according to a plan.
When you exercise, you use up energy and burn calories off your body; so, to burn more, exercise more or put more efforts in your exercise routine to enable you use more energy and burn more calories. You can achieve this by:
- Exercising at least 30 minutes for at least five days in a week.
- Get an exercise routine that will help you burn more calories.
- Get a calorie counter and set a target for every day.
- Get a personal trainer.
If you eat and don’t make use of the energy you get from the food, the energy from the food will remain in your body and be stored up as fat. The energy stored as fat in your body causes belly fat and, in most cases, obesity, and some health-related challenges
