5 Tips For a Healthier You

5 Tips For a Healthier You

Summer is sneaking up fast, so we’ve got 5 tips for a healthier YOU, heading into the silly season.

1. Eat Protein with every meal

Eating protein is important for increasing muscle mass, but protein also plays a role in fat loss too. Making sure you include protein at breakfast, lunch and dinner can aid in fat loss according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Researchers found that people who consumed protein throughout the day saw better weight loss results while preserving more lean mass – the ultimate goal for the ideal beach body.

Hemp protein powder can be added to shakes, stirred into porridge, and baked in with breads and brownies.

2. Stop snacking

A few quick bites of food might not seem like much, but the extra calories here and there add up quickly and can cause you to overeat unintentionally. Instead of snacking, sit down to a balanced meal three or four times a day. It’s so much easier to keep track of your consumption if you have distinct mealtimes.
If you must snack, make it something healthy like raw veges, or a protein ball.

3. Cut out or decrease alcohol intake

With every sip of alcohol, you are consuming unnecessary calories. You can count on 100-200 calories in every drink depending on what your tipple of choice is and the size of your pour! Alcohol also tends to lower our inhibitions and make us less likely to stick to our diets. If leanness is the key to your beach body, stick to non-sugary drinks or even better, water!

4. Sleep 7-9 hours every night.

Whether your goal is fat loss or muscle gain, sleep will be a key to your success. Sleep allows your body to recover from exercise, grow and repair muscles. Sleep deprivation can disrupt your hormonal balance and cause hunger cravings. Not sleeping enough can deteriorate your willpower, cause you to start skipping workouts and cheat on any diet you’re trying to follow.

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, sleep deprived people are more susceptible to late-night snacking, and more likely to choose high-carb snacks.

If joint pain is affecting your sleep, consider taking 3-6 hempseed oil capsules a day.

5. Find a form of exercise that you will enjoy and COMMIT to it!

The key to exercising regularly is finding an activity that you enjoy and commit to doing. Whether it’s a half hour walk every day after work, a 5k run three times a week, a 45-minute workout in the gym twice a week, or a couple of sessions of yoga a week… the important thing is that you enjoy it! Even better, mix it up. Just keep moving and be fit for life!
