Microorganisms are an inseparable part of our lives. There’s always a misunderstanding that microbes are harmful organisms that affect our health. However, it’s just partially true. Our body contains billions of microorganisms in the form of bacteria, viruses, etc., half of which are harmful to us while the other half can fight the hazardous microorganisms.
Our entire body is filled with millions and trillions of microbes, but more than 70% of them lie in our gut. Studies have proven that the microbes in our clean gut contribute significantly to our healthy immune system and ensure the supply of essential nutrients.
What if I told you the best kept secret to weight loss? One that would not only make you lose weight but will also become a lifestyle that is easily adaptable and manageable? Everything that we do for our weight loss – be it nutrition or exercise, it all falls under the one big umbrella of ‘Calories.’ The one end goal of everything is to burn more calories than you eat. And that, dear reader, is the secret – CALORIE DEFICIT.
Today, let’s unravel this concept to understand what it is and how it helps us.
As random as it may sound but yes, there IS an ideal room temperature for workout. As you would know, there are multiple factors that work in tandem to make a workout session successful. Room temperature being one of them. In outdoor workouts, temperature cannot be controlled and since it is natural with more air and usually sunlight, it does the body good.
But it becomes important when it comes to indoor / closed room workouts, such as in gym or fitness studios.
A new trend in the fitness industry is Destination Workouts. What are they you ask? It’s about a fitness and travel enthusiast traveling to various locations all across and working out in a natural environment. It gives a raw feel when you work out amidst nature and with no gym equipment support.
The workout focuses on strength training as well as cardio, while using your body weight and what nature has to offer. Sometimes, a few people also include basic equipment if nothing is available in the surroundings. The impact is not only on your physical body but also your mental well-being as nature makes you happy!
Diet – a phenomena so famous that everyone knows this much-loved trend. As discussed in my article, DIETING – An introduction to mindful eating and Bad Weight Loss Diets to Avoid, diet is what makes or breaks your health. No matter what your goal is, being mindful about dieting will accelerate your journey towards your fitness goals.
Now that we know what type of diets to avoid, let’s discuss the good side of diets – HEALTHY AND GOOD DIET.
Keeping yourself on track to stay focused on your fitness goals can be hard. There are a lot of things to do, too many distractions around and too little time to finish it all. Sounds familiar? Let’s face it, we’ve all been there. But all you need is get yourself up and running requires determination and self discipline. Motivational speeches and talks work for some, but they may seem a little too clichéd for some. Personally, I really think music can do wonders in terms of pumping you up, if you manage to find the right track.
Tired of sweating it out in the gym in this sweltering heat? Well, I understand. Summer has been harsh, but you can’t use that as an excuse to slow down on your fitness routine. Just tweak it a little. Opt for Aqua Zumba, Aqua Aerobics, Aqua Pilates, Aqua Yoga and other such water workouts to stay cool. The best part is that you don’t even need to know swimming for any of them. Continue reading
In the past few days, I’ve heard a few common complaints around me: feeling dizzy, getting tired easily and a general feeling of sluggishness throughout the day. On probing people further about their diet and lifestyle, it turned out that all of them had one thing in common — they didn’t drink enough water!
So you’ve gotten rid of all those lazy cells inside you and decided to shake it all off and go ahead with a fitter routine. The first step is the hardest, but the journey is far from over. If you’re new into the world of fitness, I’d recommend you seek the help of a trained professional who can help you reach your fitness goals.
