burn caloriesWhen it comes to eating unhealthy, we all have our Achilles heel. For me, it is chocolate; whatever size chocolate you put in front of me, it will be hard for me not to demolish the whole thing. For others, it is sandwiches or crisps. In this article we are not trying to make you cut these out of your diet completely, but help you ease into a new way of living, replacing certain foods for others and helping you to be more health conscious in your nutrition decisions. Here is how you can do so:

Change your cardio

Studies show that HIIT Cardio can allow you to burn more calories than conventional strategies of training cardio. It helps you to stimulate the ‘afterburn effect’, EPOC (excess post exercise oxygen consumption) which can allow you to receive a metabolism boost for up to 48 hours after your workout. This is a great way of training for those with a busy schedule and on time restraints, plus it is much more fun than running on a treadmill!

Stop drinking fruit juice

Fruit juices are comparable to fizzy drinks when it comes down to the sugar content. A glass of orange juice contains around 20g of sugars, while some other juices contain even more. Opt in for coconut water, filled with amazing electrolytes to help keep your body balanced and hydration levels up. Want something similar to orange juice? Have an orange instead; it has a lot less sugar.

Strategies in getting that six pack

If you want to get a six pack fast, a great way of achieving this is to eat the right type of foods, doing the right type of stomach exercises, allowing your bloating to go down etc. all is outlined in this article by Gymterest.

Dark chocolate is healthier

Dark chocolate contains more antioxidants and less sugars/fat than the other kinds, which is why you should incorporate this into your diet instead. Also it is seen as an aphrodisiac so don’t feel to guilty for having some dark chocolate sometimes.

When you’re eating food, make sure you concentrate and focus as we eat much more food when we are distracted by external variables such as TV or our smart phones. Make sure to eat slower as well because it takes a while for a brain to register that we are full. Eating slower, chewing your food more thoroughly and focusing on your meal can all contribute towards a flatter stomach.

Eat in the mornings

If you want to achieve weight loss, wake up and eat some oatmeal as it has been shown to help you with weight maintenance. Many people who skip breakfast are not helping themselves when it comes to kick-starting your metabolism in the morning.

Eating vegetables instead of fruit

Even though they are good for you, opt in for vegetables instead of fruit due to the large quantity of sugars which a lot of fruit has. Eating vegetables helps to keep the calories down, but also manages to get your daily allowance of vitamins and minerals. This means you can eat more carbs and protein without having the feeling of being too full.
