Health and fitness advice from the expert personal trainers in Cardiff.
It’s easy to understand why across the globe, obesity is a problem and we are getting fatter! Life is moving fast and convenience has become our best friend. Your day is jam-packed juggling multiple things so the last thing on your mind is eating healthy. How are you expected to find the time to prepare healthy meals?
The Typical Diet Of A Busy Working Lifestyle Is Making Us FAT!
Do you eat like this?
- You wake up and rush off with no breakfast at all or have a sugar-loaded cereal because its quick and convenient.
- By mid-morning you’re onto your third coffee.
- Lunch rolls around and you grab a sandwich or a meal deal quickly without thinking. Why wouldn’t you get a meal deal – it’s only an extra 50p for a packet of crisps and a can of coke!
- By afternoon you’re feeling tired and groggy, so hit the vending machine for another fizzy drink or a chocolate bar.
- You then get home and eat a big dinner of something like Spaghetti Bolognese and you sit on the sofa until it’s time for bed.
- Not forgetting the Haribo’s or dessert you then eat because you have got to end on something sweet.
If this is anything similar to your daily eating habits, then you are not alone! 8 out of 10 people I speak with who are looking to lose weight eat like this.
This is the typical diet of a busy working lifestyle – and it WILL make you FAT!
The combination of poor nutrition, inactivity and high stress will make you feel sluggish, lack productivity, trigger constant cravings and you will likely be overweight as well.
Eating like this will make you fat!
The reason most people eat this way is quite simply because it’s easier to eat this way than any other way.
You are constantly surrounded by pre-packaged foods which allow you to eat with ease and convenience even when you’re on the go.
It’s not easy too overhaul these bad habits but with proper planning and preparation, it is most definitely achievable.
Here are a few tips to get you started:
1.Try swapping your cereal for some greek yoghurt and fruit.
2. Increase water intake and replace fizzy drinks for flavoured waters. People often mistake thirst for hunger.
3. Plan and prepare your lunches so you are not forced to make bad choices at the shop or canteen.
4. Start adding extra vegetables to your main meals.
5. Keep your fridge full with fresh fruit and slice some up when you’re preparing your dinner so you can have a healthier sweet instead of that fattening dessert.
These are some simple changes that you can make tomorrow and can expect to start seeing results within a week.
