Weight Loss Side Effects That Are Actually Worth It Ditching the processed junk that make up many diets, diets that preach a one-size-fits-all approach, may seem counter-intuitive. And it kind of is. But, your body changes so often, there are pros to experimenting with different diet strategies that promote long-term health and fitness goals.
Think about it: A lot of your metabolism is geared towards the structure and function of your liver, your blood, and your nervous system. Even your body fat can change over time. I personally do not need to starve myself to lose weight. I love Greek yogurt and peanut butter sandwiches, and I find it is really helpful for me to cut out refined sugars.
There is something so fulfilling about eating an apple, especially when you are trying to build muscle. I know my body is only getting older and I am trying to transition from a sedentary lifestyle to a lifestyle full of movement, which includes high-intensity workouts, weightlifting, and circuit training. That is why I think it is important to have a consistent and regular exercise plan to maintain your strength, health, and flexibility, all of which can help you live your best life and feel fantastic all year round.
Here are just some of the many benefits to some of the more unconventional methods of weight loss. Convenience. Being lazy and in the gym all the time is not worth it. It is so much more convenient to work out at home in the morning. Eliminating choice. Every week I pick out the most effective workouts to add to my weekly workout regimen, whether that is on the elliptical or with yoga. I love watching my favourite shows while on the elliptical, and I can jump right to my favourite cardio workout by exercising with TV or a fitness app on my phone while I work out. Increased energy.
I can typically squeeze in workouts every morning before I get out of bed. Usually this is the only time in the week I can exercise before work. Increased focus. I can multitask, and focus in and out of the gym when working out. Low maintenance. You won't have to worry about sweat or hair spilling over the sweat-shower towels. Improved mood. Studies show that moderate exercise such as walking for 15-20 minutes a day, consistently, is associated with improved mood, and higher happiness.
