So, how do I do that?
Well, it’s the same elementary answers that all innately know, eat well and exercise. To expound on eating well, balance blood sugar by eating low to moderate glycemic index foods in small meals all throughout the day. This is the key, in my opinion, to managing and controlling weight and composition.
In addition to a well balanced diet exercise will help shift the scale by helping to burn calories as well as strengthen system functions such as cardiovascular and respiratory systems. By building muscle we shift body composition and burn un-needed fat storage, therefore having more muscle mass and less fat mass. In actuality gaining weight on a scale because muscle weighs more than fat.
The change will come in inches lost and you’ll feel amazing. Does this mean that we need 2 hours of crazy exercise a day? No, not at all. Try to find activity that you can be consistent with and do just that… be consistent.
