If we are to talk about having an extended and a healthy life, two components are needed to be considered. We have to consider fitness, and of course, diet. For sure many of us think that these two are just the same and cannot stand alone from each other, but reality check, they can be. It can be possible to still have an ideal healthy diet that comes with an improper fitness practice. Likewise, it is also not impossible to be very physically fit and buff but still satisfying a savory eating habits.
I always remember the line from a song by Jimmy Buffet “Fruitcakes” when the lady is crying for this line, “I treat my body like a temple…You treat yours like a tent”, in cases I visualize that all the human in the world who are into the process of garbage in, garbage out plans on their diet and are extremely willing and wanting to attain the weight loss success of those people, celebrities and sports figure advertising different diet products.
Is it achievable to take away extra pounds by dieting alone? To be totally honest, yes it is. Though it may be very difficult but still, it is doable. It is also within one’s capabilities to be fit physically yet still have small extra pounds present in their body. And in totality, we are what we eat. It reflects to who we are as a person. By consuming a rich fat but with low substance diet, our bodies for sure will lack the fuel that is essential in burning our body fat. Simultaneously, by not providing our bodies with the essential tools it needs in building muscles, the weights we are lifting will no longer matter and will become useless.
So how can we get the best possible fitness and diet results?
The answer is we can achieve the optimum results when fitness and a healthy diet work mutually rather than independently. Bring into play your usual fitness activities to shed extra calories and utilize your diet in order to greatly deliver your body with the nutrients and fuel that it needs in building more muscles. A lot of times in my life, I’ve been informed that a pound of muscle is less than a pound of fat upon weighing the two. Though this may not be correct at all, regardless, a pound is still something; a pound of muscle take up less space in the body than that of fat. And with that in mind, I would then be composed of muscles rather than fats. Diet by itself does not help in muscle generation and that is something you will do well in remembering your efforts.
You must also realize that as you are building more muscles you may be shedding inches and still not showing an enormous deal of progress on the weighing scale. It is extremely imperative that you instill this in mind during the whole weight loss course. Progress should not me measured by the scales alone or you will achieve deceptive results. The issue is that far too many people do just this and get bothered and give up when in reality without their knowledge, they are actually making progress. Please do not allow yourself victimize by the scales. Get a mirror, look at it and try on your tight jeans, and assess your waistline. Measure your improvement by how you feel with your body after climbing a trip of stairs and not by how many pounds fell of the scale this week.
And by including body fitness as being a part of your diet practice, you yourself is allowing your entire body to take away extra calories that you may have eaten during the entire day This means that if you would want to have some cheat meals during the day, you can still make up for it by burning additional calories than the normal in the evening. This should not be happening often but an intermittent occurrence for sure isn’t going to make or break your diet plan
Everyone should also look at these (dieting and fitness) as a relationship that is something like a ball and glove. For sure you can still play the ball without having the glove, but it will work a lot better if you have and is using both. Diet and fitness when come together can produce very incredible results for weight loss for those who are taking them both sincerely. The thing that we should always keep in mind is that neither works as well without the other and neither will deliver results unless you are very eager and wanting to do the work. And to attain the best promising results, you must make this as a priority in your life.
