Living in the 21st century we get almost everything at the click of a button. Owing to advances in medical research, the lifespan of individuals has increased, but cases of early aging have increased. People in their late 20s, 30s, and 40s are facing various lifestyle disorders such as obesity, blood pressure, diabetes, heart attacks, etc.
In today's world, it is very difficult to give time to our fitness, many of us have this misconception that to be fit, one must hit the gym regularly with full commitment and dedication. Honestly, that is not the only way to remain fit. A human body needs both quality food and exercise to remain fit and function at its best. A good amount of exercise and proper nutrition will in turn help you live a happy and healthy life.
Consistent exercise and a good diet will ensure the preservation of your quality of life. It also helps preserve a healthy weight, a strong body composition, and decreases the risk of being attacked by any of the cardiovascular diseases. In return, good exercise and a balanced diet will help you live a happier and healthy life.
Observing the last decade, comparatively, health is now being given more importance to people. After seeing those who are unfit and diseases caused by obesity and unhealthy food, many give importance to fitness. Looking upon the latest fitness trends that have been launched by actors, wrestlers, models, etc., many offer value to fitness.
Many offer importance to fitness after finding out the fact that one can be fit without religiously hitting the gym. Fitness still needs to be given priority, whatever the cause, and let me help you take care of your fitness in the easiest way.
What's the Difference between weight loss and fat loss?
Many people approach fitness trainers to get advice on being overweight. But they are advised to concentrate on fat loss and not weight loss. Bones, muscles, fat, body fluids, etc. can be weighed and all these are needed for our body except for fat and only surplus calories are contained in fat (minimum fat requirement is 5 % of total body weight).
What should be the correct nutrition for the body?
To achieve our goal, adequate nutrition plays an important role. It's not a matter of how much you consume, but of what you consume. The basic human body trend is to maintain fats and decrease muscle mass because muscles require more attention in this regard. We have to do just the opposite- retain muscles and only eliminate fat. It requires proteins to build muscles, whatever protein you consume it is transformed into amino acids and stored in muscle cells and we can decrease the consumption of carb(carbohydrates) to decrease fat since the basic function of carbs is only to provide energy.
But most of our muscles, hormones (except for sex hormones and stress hormones), filaments of actin and myosin, etc., are made of proteins.
On the other side of the coin, we feel low in energy if you decrease carbohydrates. But for fitness, we can't eat carbohydrates because it goes directly to adipose tissues, i.e. fat (only exceptions are slow absorbing carbs). So here's the solution, if we're decreasing carbs in our diet, we need to increase the consumption of dietary fat for energy because 1 carbohydrate molecule will give you 4 kcal and fat will give you 9 kcal in the same amount of molecule
Will the consumption of dietary fat increase the fat in your body?
Dietary fat will improve the fat in your body. All the sex hormones, stress hormones, skin, brain ligaments, and so on are made of fats. Therefore consuming them is not going to be harmful to you. It won't raise the cholesterol level in your blood. Glucose is the primary suspect for raising the level of cholesterol. This is responsible for the glycation process. Cholesterol is also critical for the health of the brain and helps to improve the memories. Low HDL cholesterol levels have been correlated with memory loss and Alzheimer's disease, and may also raise the risk of depression, stroke, aggressive behavior, and even suicide
What should be the Supplements?
Supplements allow you to achieve your health objectives. Micronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats) alone are not adequate. micronutrients are all transported by macronutrients. It is most useful for your ability to alter the structure and health of the body by ingesting the correct amount of superior nutrient content at the appropriate particular time.
It is quite easy to be misled by the plethora of different tips everyone has to give about fitness, but sticking to facts and thinking scientifically is the only solution a fitness enthusiast can afford to embrace.
