Exercise or diet?

 

When it comes to weight loss, the dilemma about what is better diet or exercise is alive. People often claim weight loss due to dieting ("tummy is lost in the kitchen”) while others claim that exercise is complementary for tuning muscles and give last touches into getting fit (“a six pack is built in the gym”).

 

But what is really better?

Switching from high-calorie to low-calorie, reducing portion size or skipping one or two high-calorie foods a day can be a good way to start cutting down calories.

The right fitness-diet balance

fitness diet balance
Balancing your food and activity level

It is Monday morning. It's is a great day to get out to the grocery, pick up some foods and prepare some meals for this week. If you think this will help you get on track, I recommend doing this today or maybe on sunday if you are pretty busy during week days. I prefer to cook extra food at lunch time and then take the left overs for dinners. Whatever works better for you.

High Intensity Interval Training

Speed and resting time

 

Hing Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) refers to doing almost any type of exercise at a variable pace. For example, if you are walking or doing push-ups, vary the pace of the exercise. You can walk normally for a minute or so, and then speed up a bit, and then return to normal speed several times. For exercises like push-ups, do a few slowly and do others more quickly and, like walking, repeat these faster and slower intervals several times. Interval training helps the body to adjust its aerobic system (heart rate, breathing, and metabolism) to burn more calories to lose weight and strengthen and tune muscles. Allow Interval Training to arrange your exercise routine for better and faster results.

Daily calorie intake

 

How many calories/day should I consume?

 

I am sure this is a question that all of us have been wondering sometimes. There is not such an exact answer that it would magically work for everyone but, generally speaking, within a healthy and  balanced diet, men needs around 10,500kJ (~2,500kcal) a day to maintain a healthy weight, and for women, this figure goes around 8,400kJ (~2,000kcal) a day. However, these values vary depending on age, metabolism and levels of physical activity, among other things.
