FOUR STEPS TO WINNING
Have you been working out and not noticing any changes in your body?
Whether your goal is to lose weight, feel healthier or gain some muscle it can be frustrating when your body does not react as you are expecting it to, no matter what you do right. In some cases, progress might be made in a short amount of !me, but can then experience months where there is little to no visible progress. Plateaus are normal, but they can also be a sign that it is time to re-evaluate your approach to achieving the body you want. The most successful people reach their body goals by understanding that it isn’t just about the time they spend in the gym or on a treadmill. It’s about an entire lifestyle and mindset change. Below are 4 things you can do besides working out to achieve your goal body.
Cut the sugar. Of all the diet fads out there, cutting your sugar intake makes the most difference. Simply eliminating desserts isn’t enough. Processed food, starches, fruit juices, and alcohol are all sources of sugar you need to be aware of. Reducing your overall sugar intake will make a huge difference in your weight, muscle definition, and energy levels. We all need a certain amount of naturally occurring sugar to keep our glucose levels normal, but in most diets, our food contains an unhealthy amount of sugar. Too much creates inflammation, weight gain, brain fog, fatigue, and a multitude of other health problems that many people don’t even realise are coming from their high-sugar diet. Eat whole foods low on the glycemic index to create sustained energy throughout the day. You will notice excess bloating and weight melt away, muscles start to develop, and energy levels will increase.
