sing weight sounds like an easy thing to do from the man looking in from the outside, just do some exercise, just eat like a rabbit, just, just, just! Yeah, for some men it is easy to lose weight which could be down to their genetics, metabolism, upbringing as it relates to food and exercise, for some people it is easy.
k about losing weight the first port of call is often to ban foods we enjoy no matter what they are. It makes sense to restrict our diet a bit because keeping things the same will only garner more of the same. But the method of food restriction is very important and we’ll be looking into that in this post.
The pace of life is ever increasing and the amount of free time we have is fleeting. We seek out our provisions and strive hard to get paid, many of us exchanging time for money whilst neglecting the fact that if we don’t look after our health we’ll lose both time and provisions.
Self-discipline is your ability to control your habits and choices which can take some training. When it comes to your health you have to get past being motivated and drive into self-discipline because they are two different breeds of Beast. Motivation is what causes a person to want to repeat a behaviour and in this case, we’ll use exercise.
As the weather in the UK is getting brighter, days getting longer and layers of clothing reducing you may be feeling more motivated to shed some of the weight you gained during Lockdown 2021. Many of us men are in the same situation, wanting to get back into shape or starting a fitness journey for the first time. I say journey because fitness would ideally be a part of our everyday lives. Today we will discover how you can start shedding pounds and how many calories you need to burn to lose a pound of fat this week!
If it’s not “New Year’s Resolutions” it’s the “Summer Shred” or something else, the peer pressure and body shaming can be unrelenting. I do notice how the media and companies promote their products to ignite a desire within people. I’m a part of that just by stepping into the fitness arena be it by what I wear in the gym or the things I post on the internet, it all goes to shape how other people choose to live their lives and what they think of themselves.
Too many Calories that build up, not being expended by exercise or physical activity cause an increase in body weight. The more you eat without burning off those calories the heavier you will become. This principle is known as energy balance or part of it anyway.
Lifestyle is what everyone is going on about, there’s so many of them. I’d like to talk about maintaining a healthy lifestyle which comes in all shapes and sizes but I will be general in my speech, I hope you find this article to be an informative introduction that will serve you well. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle takes more effort than you’d think so here are some basics to get you started.
The Concise Oxford Dictionary says exercise to be:
Activity requiring physical effort, done especially as training or to sustain or improve health.
With this definition we see that exercise can be many things, things we enjoy and things we have never even related to improving our health.
Why do you eat what you eat? Is it because you’ve been raised by parents eating a specific food, do you eat as you do because it’s socially acceptable, is it because your money stretches that bit further than most and you have a taste for the takeaway food daily?
