You have a busy life and you want to stay fit, but you do not have enough time. How do you ensure that you stay fit and that you can bring your children to school and all sorts of clubs and birthdays, do your work well, run the household, do not neglect the social agenda, continue to see your family and have fun with you partner? The will to stay fit is often there, but the time, the fut and the sense are sometimes missing. In this blog I explain ways for you that help you stay fit.
What is being fit? Being fit is a broad concept. Being fit means that you:
1. Condition is in order
Your condition, or your endurance, says something about the capacity of your heart and your lungs. For example, are you able to walk quite a lot?
2. Being lenient and mobile
Your agility and mobility say something about how you can use your muscles and joints during physical exercise.
3. Reasonably strong
Your muscle strength says something about how quickly you get soured in certain efforts, such as running around, painting a wall, moving a heavy cupboard or climbing a few stairs.
4. Body composition is in order
Your body composition says something about your fat percentage and your body weight.
5. Mentally and emotionally comfortable in your skin
Being fit also means that you feel good and are positive in life. For example, are you happy with yourself and how do you deal with adversity? Ok, now that we know what fit content is, we now go to the tips that make you fit.
Fit after your thirtieth
Now that you have a busy family, a busy job, a partner, a house to put pressure on you, the feeling of being fit gets in the knuckle. The time you used to have in abundance has now become a scarce commodity. The tips below help you to get fit and stay fit. I hope you can benefit from it.
Nutrition to stay fit
Eating determines to a large extent how you feel. Therefore, choose for full nutrition that nourishes and not just fills. Healthy eating contributes better to a fit than snacks, biscuits, chips and too much alcohol.
Choose for full products. Light products are often tinkered, and they usually contain quite a lot of sugars. For example, drink whole milk if you want to drink milk. I recently started drinking raw milk and am very enthusiastic about it. Also choose cream butter over margarine.
2. Vegetable and fruit
Fibers of fruit and vegetables are satiating so that your blood sugar levels remain constant. High peaks in your blood sugar level cause hunger feelings, so you want to eat again and that’s why you arrive. You do not want that, you want to be fit. Fruit and vegetables also contain vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, proteins and healthy fats that you need for countless body processes.
According to the Nutrition Center you only have to eat fish once a week because the health effects of eating fish several times a week would not have been proven sufficiently. Without going any further, I would say look at groups of people where most people over the age of 100 occur. Japanese people from Okinawa and the inhabitants of Sardinia for example, they eat a lot of fish. In addition, fish contains a lot of healthy omega 3 fats and has been proven to contribute to the prevention of depression and even stimulate fat burning. What about fish once a week!
4. Full grains
Whole grains are very healthy. You can find them in whole meal bread, oatmeal, quinoa and brown rice. They contain a lot of fiber and antioxidants. Fiber is known to do your bowels well and antioxidants are known to attack free radicals, so you can prevent disturbed cell division (which can be the case in diseases like cancer). Full grains also give you a long-lasting full feeling. Scientists at the University of Harvard have determined that whole grains promote a longer life.
Eat fats just to be fit. Fat contains the vitamins A, D, E and K. Weston Price discovered some 80 years ago that fats actually contribute to a healthy body in general. The shift from fat to carbohydrate-rich food – the dogma of the 80s and 90s – is related to overweight, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes 2. Eating fats also helps with weight loss (and staying on weight). It is recommended to visit MyGreensDaily.com.
