Summer is approaching, which means that your body will soon appear in the sunlight – and in a bathing suit – again. You may wish that you could get a fit body from eating junk food, watching TV all day, or playing Sadly, that is not going to happen. Even though the ‘getting in shape’-process may seem long, the effort put towards being in shape – and the end result – has many positive effects. Read along and get some simple fitness tips, if you want to start your journey to getting a fit body.

Eat the right food 

Even though your stomach may wish for candy over healthy food, try to stay away from sweets. Believe it or not, but the food you eat has a great impact on your results. Fruits and vegetables are the best alternatives to eat when getting into shape. Green vegetables, such as green beans or broccoli, keep the digestive system clean and running. At the same time – make sure to get some proteins through chicken, tuckey or eggs. The same goes for seafood that also contains healthy nutrients to keep muscles fit for fight. 

Portion each meal

Another simple fitness tips – try to make a habit out of portioning what you eat. Having a good metabolism comes from portioning meals. For example, try to plan out eating around six times a day, and include smaller portions, rather than eating three larger meals throughout the day. The reason for this, is that lesser food in your digestive system secures more energy hidden toward your exercise. 

Exercise everyday

A ground rule: Exercise daily for at least one hour. This does not have to be sprinting for one whole hour – but alternate between running, jogging or walking at a brisk pace for one hour everyday. If you want to burn more calories, do a higher-level intensity workout – or maybe set certain intervals to sprint during your run. Avoid severe pain during your workout – but do not mistake tenderness with pain. Your muscles ache after a workout, but this is the pain we like, as it is a sign that your body is changing for the better. Make sure to drink lots of water.
