Getting in shape can be tough, but the personal trainers at Body Unique can make your journey to better health feel more manageable and rewarding. Whether your goal is to lose weight for optimum health or to increase your muscle mass, the staff at Body Unique is able to help you learn the discipline required to keep you in the best possible shape.
So what are some ways you can help yourself during, before, and after your workouts?
- Stay hydrated. Water helps your body metabolize fat, regulate its own temperature, digest food, increase oxygen levels in your blood, transport nutrients to the body's cells, and even help your brain work properly. You need not wait until you're thirsty. It's good to drink a glass of water before meals, or you can snack on fruits and vegetables that have high water content, such as tomatoes, grapes, oranges, or watermelon.
- Keep track of your food. When you write down what you eat, it's easier to see what changes you need to make in your dietary habits. It's also important to jot down your drinks in this food log, since many people consume empty calories from sugary drinks such as soda, fancy coffees, or juices that are high in sugar content.
- A balanced diet is key. Though there are many fad diets out there, it's important to include all food groups in your diet. Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, protein, carbs, and good fats in your daily diet. Consult your doctor if you're going to make a drastic change to your diet.
These habits are a small way to take control of your health.
