If you have over done it on your holidays, here are a few tips to get you back into shape without having to go to extreme ways to achieve your fitness goals.
Eat regular meals at the correct time – By eating breakfast after waking up, and again within 3-5 hours, Start your days with evenly spaced out meals which will help replace your blood sugar and your metabolism, starving yourself only causes your body to go into conservation mode, and hang onto excess body fat which is not the desired effect.
Remember to drink lots of water. Aim for about 8-10 cups a day, as this will help your metabolism and can help to curb your appetite. It also makes you feel better and less bloated.
Reduce the amount of carbohydrate, but don’t cut back completely – cutting back on carbohydrates can force your body to use protein for food instead of using it to build your fat burning muscles.
By regular exercise, and following a few simple tips, you should be back to normal in no time at all, ready for christmas!
