Dieting is the job which has no alternative and there is no option for exercising and also for keeping the body fit and fine. Here are some of the tips which may definitely prove effective and also helpful for the proper diet and exercise tips.

Before the diet and exercise tips, here’s a quip about working out:

“Whenever I feel like exercise, I lie down until the feeling passes.”

- Robert M. Hutchins

Effective Diet and Exercise Tips

  • The best time to work out.
    The best time to work out is when you can   fit it into your schedule.  You don’t need to use “time” as an excuse to skip a workout.  If done properly, you CAN complete a total body workout in forty-five minutes (complete with warm-up, cardio and stretching).  Keep the rest between sets to a minute, include a series of 4-5 “bursts” of high intensity cardio after resistance training, and end with a stretch of your personal “hot spots” or, the areas of your body that tend to be the tightest. Select your own time, but do it.
  • Elliptical just means oval.
    Treadmills are typically the most popular pieces of cardiovascular equipment in the gym. While many people prefer the elliptical because it is easiest on the knees, consider this: it also supports a great deal of your body weight making the demand on your cardiovascular system a lot less so fewer calories than you might expect are being burned.  Additionally, the way these machines are programmed is notoriously inaccurate, leaving the average person believing they burned a lot more calories than they actually did.
  • Body parts, schmody parts.
    For years, the conventional wisdom has been to train the body by breaking it down into a combination of “body parts” usually spread over the course of a week.  However, the conventional “wisdom” is wrong.  Muscles do not work in isolation!  The body was meant to function as a unit.  Instead, focus on combination movements that work as many muscles simultaneously as possible, training the whole body during each workout.
  • The “fat burning zone” is a myth.
    Here’s the concept: the body burns a greater amount of fat at lower intensities than it does at higher intensities and that is why jogging became so popular. It’s true that the body burns a greater percentage of fat at lower intensities than at higher intensities.    It’s a greater percentage of a smaller number. At lower intensities fifty percent of calories may be burned from fat, while at higher intensities it may only burn thirty five percent of calories from fat but at higher intensities you burn a LOT more total calories.
  • Vegetarianism is the best for organism
    A recent study suggests plant foods may help preserve muscle mass.  Over time, some foods create a mild but slowly increasing metabolic “acidosis.” Acidosis promotes muscle protein wasting by both increasing protein degradation and inhibiting protein synthesis, or creation.  Diets relatively high in potassium-rich, alkaline-residue producing foods like, fruits and vegetables may help neutralize acidosis. This study concluded that eating more vegetables and fruits can significantly offset this effect.  This is particularly important as we age because our muscle mass naturally begins to decreases which results in slow down of your metabolism. So eat those veggies!

So, concluding, we’ll just say that to keep the body fit is more important than earning as even if you earn lot, the consequences of Fat hazard will not be avoided. So, focus on your health and have practice of simple diet and exercises or even the Yoga’s to strengthen the greatest gift of God, “Yours Body.”
