You won’t believe, but there are actually some of our habits which are making us live a flabbier life.
And I promise, if you try and change these – you will actually be one step closer to living a lean life.
Let’s discuss what these habits are –
AT NO. 6 we have : Using sitting posture instead of our traditional squatting posture in the toilet.
This might surprise you but honestly guys!
It does have an effect on you maybe not now but, in future – which is having a bloated belly, constipation, piles, colon diseases and many other diseases.
I am not alone who believes this but many clinical studies have proved this too and even doctors are recommending it now.
Squatting is the most natural position for excretion. It helps your bowels to eliminate toxins, waste to the fullest. It is also healthy for the pelvic floor.
To know more detailed information on the benefits of squatting position for excreting, you can GOOGLE;).
AT NO. 5 is – Watching too much TV.
It’s a bad habit which you need to change because whenever you are watching tv you are probably sitting or laying – which means you are not burning calories at all. On the other hand, if you weren’t you would be burning calories maybe by walking your dog, working out, playing or shopping;).
Don’t get me wrong, watching your favorite tv show, movie, news, sports isn’t a crime, even I love watching tv but, the problem starts when that one show turns into many hours, many consumed calories, many missed workouts every single day.
Tip of the day: In every in between advertisement, walk or just move around- stay active, don’t just stick to your sofa.
AT NO. 4 is your habit of buying “Low Fat packaged Food”.
Stop searching for low fat food, it’s not healthy at all. You are probably brain washed by the food marketers and media. I ‘ll tell you why?
By labeling it as low fat they strip the food from natural, healthy, harmless fats but remember they have to replace it with something. To maintain the taste and other factors they replace fats with artificial substances, sweeteners, sugar etc. Which in turn will spike up your blood sugar levels, leaving a room for more cravings and has an effect on your fat storing too.
AT NO. 3 is the habit of considering walking as an exercise.
Guyss! “Walking is the best exercise” – IT’S A MYTH.
Go to any health expert, dietitian, trainers and they tell you – walking counts as an activity. It’s good, it’s amazing, it does wonders but if you take it as an activity and not a form of an exercise. An exercise is always progressive and if that walk is not turning into jog and jog into a run- it’s not exercise. That means you have to find some other way of working out plus the walk- workout + activity to be fit, healthy.
AT NO. 2 is the habit of Eating Fast.
This is the worst as you tend to overeat. Finding your eating threshold is important.
Studies show that it takes 20 mins for your stomach to realize that it’s full.
When you eat fast your stomach is not able to communicate to the brain properly and also if you are not chewing your food properly you are leaving to much work on your stomach to do. When you keep food in your mouth and chew it slowly it actually gets mixed up saliva/digestive enzymes and aids digestion of that food.
AT NO. 1 is that you are drinking your calories.
Most of you are drinking your calories in the form of sodas, juices, diet drinks, alcohol, full cream coffees.
These have known to spike up your sugar cravings throughout the day, leaving your crave for more. These drinks are loading with hunger spiking artificial sweeteners and sugar.
Switch to hydrating yourself with water. Water does help in calming cravings.
If at all you need to add sugar to your tea or coffee. Use natural sugar instead of the artificial one.
You get only one body, you have to live in it. Take responsibility to change.
