In the mad rush to make ourselves fit, we often draw up a complicated diet plan that hardly benefits us and ends up making us more confused. To get rid of this problem, we provide few tips that will help you to simplify your diet program. Here we go.
Eat your breakfast- One of the golden rules of fitness is to eat breakfast daily. It will burn calories faster and thus help you to shed the pounds in the long run. Opt for fiber-rich foods such as barley for making you feel ‘full’ for a longer time.
Maintain a food diary- Writing down every food item consumed during the day helps you to calculate the daily calorie intake correctly. Many of us love taking bites from other people’s plates and later overlook it. The result is that we fail to reach the fitness goals and wonder where we went wrong. Maintaining a food journal on a regular basis will help you to keep track on what you are eating.
Plan healthy snacks- Planning the mid-morning or afternoon snacks will help you to avoid the high-calorie food items that you may consume on an impulse. Try unsalted popcorn, handful of dried nuts, plain yoghurt or a fruit at the snack time. These snacks will provide you with the required nutrition and prevent you from overeating.
Increase your water intake- According to a study published by the University of North Carolina; participants who drank 7 cups of water consumed 200 calories less (on daily basis) as compared to those who drank 1 cup of water. Drink water before and post your workout routine and with every meal and snack.
Simplify your diet plan with the help of these secret tips and fulfill your fitness goals faster. Your comments and suggestions are most welcome. Cheers!
