Trying to lose weight is really difficult and while we all know that a good combination of exercise and diet is essential, we still wonder which one of these is more important?
Are you a person who frequently runs over to Burger King or Starbucks because it’s just near to your workplace and your hunger buds just keep on watering? And you also think that walking to and fro there would actually burn your calories? Well, count me in with you.
I am pretty tired of setting health goals – to lose weight, boost my energy or even increase my Libido. I wonder what is better – Diet or Exercise?
Let’s go through a couple of points that could easily tell how a 20 min – 200 calorie burning run can cancel out a can of soda or a candy bar?
Research shows that, in certain cases focusing on one or the other will give you better results.
Okay, this might sound drastic but changing your diet can have a dramatic effect on your weight. Cut out processed food, sugar and basically everything that counts into "Junk Food". Work that ass off two times every week and drink loads of water.
Sleep enough and curb that caffeine addiction. Duh! Instead of adding a massive - greasy breakfast to your diet, add in flavonoids and bring that yoga mat rightaway.
Say No to smoking and opt for aerobics. Switch to a plant based diet and practice meditation.
Aerobic exercises improve brain health but strength training is also a key. Consuming a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and fruits like strawberries and spinach have proved out to improve brain health.
Get your sweatpants ready for yoga proves to be the ultimate remedy for decreasing stress and anxiety. It helps in inducing a state of relaxation and helps women to stay focused.
Because when life hands you lemons, the best revenge is a life well lived with a smoking hot body.
