Top Fitness Tips To Stay Healthy And Look Great

There isn't one person in this world that doesn't want to have and maintain good health. That is why the industry for weight loss supplements, organic foods, and exercise clubs are gaining in popularity. People want to look and feel their best and so they will jump at every opportunity that presents itself, whether it works or not. The following is a list of the best fitness tips that can help individuals to stay healthy and look great.

The first tip is all about your goals- the best goal is to become stronger, not necessarily skinnier. Our bodies have a harder time fighting illness and recovering when we are not strong so the best way to combat that is by combining a routine of cardio, strength training, and flexibility training. One little tip that many doctors have recommended is to get a pedometer to track the number of steps you take in a day and make your goal to reach 10,000 (5 miles).

The next way to improve your health is by improving your diet. Studies have clearly shown that all of the refined white foods such as rice, pasta, bread, sugar, and flour are only empty calories with no nutritional gains. If you cut these items out of your diet, you will find that you have more energy and lose some extra pounds.

Tip: Examine your interests and find an exercise program that you enjoy now, and will probably enjoy six months from now. If you enjoy your exercise plan, you'll anticipate it with pleasure rather than dread every day.

Your mother probably always told you how important it was to eat your vegetables and she was right. Broccoli is one of the top vegetables you can eat for good health- it cleans your liver as well as helps to fight cancer. It is also super easy to prepare which makes it a great choice- just cut it up and steam or microwave it.

Vitamin D is very important in keeping your body healthy and the majority of individuals are not getting an adequate dose of it. This vitamin helps you to absorb more calcium which is crucial for your bone strength, strengthens your immune system, reduces inflammation, controls appetite, and even protects against other types of cancer. You can either take ten minutes a day and sit in the sun or you can eat tuna, salmon, or mackerel for the best sources of this vitamin.

Last but certainly not least, you knew drinking water would be on the list. Drinking water does so much good for your body by keeping you energized, healthy, and even helps you to lose weight. Many times when you think you are hungry, in reality you are truly thirsty. As a rule of thumb, take you body weight and divide it by two, that is how many ounces of water you should be drinking every day.

In conclusion, even though there are many things that are on the market today to help "get you healthy quick," sometimes the best solutions are the easiest. Just by some simple changes in your diet and exercise routine, and you will notice a healthier and happier you.
