Don’t you envy those who eat a lot and never seem to put on an extra ounce whereas you have to count your calories to watch your weight? Perhaps you have tried various means to lose weight. You may have spent thousands of dollars on slimming courses or slimming pills without an inch of difference to your waist. Some may even work towards maintaining the right BMI (Body Mass Index) but with disappointing results.
Fitness experts are saying, ‘maintain a regular exercise routine.’ “As if I don’t know that?” you may retort in exasperation. Yes, it is not something new but what follows may be the key to a slimmer you.
According to fitness experts, one should work towards building muscle and reducing fat. A decrease in body fat and an increase in muscle mass will make one not only look better and healthier but feel stronger and more energetic. This is because as one builds muscle, fat is being burnt up.
So do not procrastinate! Begin excising anywhere, anytime. You need not confine yourself with weightlifting to increase your muscle. Work on things you enjoy doing – gardening, walking, jogging, cycling and even housework. The idea is to keep moving your body because as you do, fat is being burnt up and muscles are being firmed up.
