BALANCED DIET - HOW TO BUILD THE PERFECT MEAL AND GET HEALTHY

When thinking about the words “diet” and “toned bodies”, we immediately think of endless hours of cardio and restrictive meal plans where we are only allowed to consume few calories whilst also cutting out all carbohydrates and fats. However, these methods are not even remotely close to how you can truly achieve your goal body. In fact, in order to get toned, you need to train hard using weights and make sure to nourish your body correctly, and this also means eating enough calories and include carbohydrates and fats as part of your diet.

EATING LESS IS NOT ALWAYS THE RIGHT OPTION

The main concern of women wanting to feel good in their skin, is that eating more and lifting weights can make them look too bulky, but this is not the case if you are following a well-designed training plan and a correct diet. The first thing you need to make sure of, is that you are eating enough calories, because if you are under eating, you will never be able to build muscle and get that ‘toned’ and defined look. Carbohydrates and proteins are of vital importance for this aim, as carbohydrates make sure you have enough energy to sustain your training sessions, and protein helps the repairing and building process of the muscles at rest. Fats are also important and must be included in your plan, as they are essential for maintaining a healthy hormonal profile and also make up our cell membranes. And don’t forget about fruit and vegetables, as these foods are rich in micronutrients that are essential to nourish our body and keep it strong from within. As we are all different, the daily requirements for each nutrient to be healthy varies among individuals, you can seek the help of a nutritionist to get this assessed based on your personal needs and goals. However, as a rule of thumb, balanced meals should always include some complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, a source of healthy fats and plenty of fruit and vegetables.

LOOKING TONED IS A BY PRODUCT OF LIFTING WEIGHTS

Once you’ve fine-tuned your individual dietary requirements, it is time to think about your training. If you want to look toned, you need to build muscles, and this can only be achieved by resistance training and progressive increase of weight load. Cardio is a fantastic way to maintain a strong heart and lungs, so if you want to incorporate cardio into your training plan, make sure you are including this in your calorie expenditure when designing your diet.

LOOK GOOD TO FEEL GOOD

Another important factor when training is to wear appropriate clothing that enables you to perform the full range of movement comfortably, so gym wear should always be picked based on comfortability, material stretchability and good moisture wicking. However, wearing sportswear shouldn't be an excuse to dress poorly, as a nice activewear outfit will make you feel more motivated by making you feel & look good whilst you work out, and many women admitted this helps boost their confidence! From stylish tank tops, scrunch shorts, high support sport bras and fashionable scrunch leggings, you can pick the style that most reflects your personality and makes you feel your best. If you want to find top quality activewear sets, head over to our website www.clubathletica.com to purchase comfortable and trendy clothing to wear whilst you are working on achieving your body goals.

 

Happy training everyone & remember .........."consistency is the key to success"!!
