You must have read many stories of weight loss and wondered, “How they did it?”

Actually, Nutrition and exercise, both are important for your well-being. For example, If one is doing too much muscular exercise, they should have a good amount of protein on their plate. Many people think that it can be achieved just with the exercise but it is not right.

  • It is important not to make drastic changes in your diet.
  • Choose healthier methods of cooking and eating before you start an exercise routine.
  • Focus on a healthy diet is very important. For example- Make a target of how much weight one wants to lose etc.
  • Stay hydrated. It is very important while working out and also when you are following a diet.
  • I suggest to stay away from diets and focus more on eating healthy.
  • More realistic approach while working out is to focus on gaining muscular weight and not “just losing weight”.
  • Always remember that you need proteins for muscles and do not rely only on carbohydrates for quick energy.
  • Diet should be low in fats, low in fiber, moderate in carbohydrates and proteins and include fluids.
  • If you are working out to lose weight, stick to the lighter version of sports drinks which have fewer carbohydrates and calories.
  • Energy bars are available in the market but opt for bars with minimum fats and at least 5gms of proteins and some carbohydrates.
  • If you are getting up early to exercise, finish your breakfast at least an hour before that.
  • Be careful on not to overdo on eating before your workout.
  • Eat within two hours of your workout and try having a good mixture of proteins and carbohydrates.

There are a lot of diet foods available on the market these days and people follow a lot of fad diets to lose weight. But, the real mantra is – Eat healthy, control your portions and exercise daily. 

As they say,” You are what you eat!”

So, Take wise decisions and do not follow others blindly 🙂
