Get That Beach Body
In this part, we will talk about what you can do to get your body ready for the summer vacation. We will discuss things that you should look upon to transform your body and get it back in shape.
Although building a well-sculpted body is a long process, especially if you are a female, there are still some things that we can do to make the body fit. It is already March and the time is ticking away, but you can still make significant changes to your body if you follow the below given mantras for a healthy living.
For a start, we will talk about the importance of the workout program and diet.
One of the most important parts of building a muscular body or losing body fat, lies in the method of lifting weights. This commonly used method is responsible for many body transformations, increased athletic performances, lowered body fat, increased strength and much more. It is good to mention here that by doing weight lifting exercises, you are stimulating the system so that it can burn excess fat in a better way.
For men, it’s important to increase the level of testosterone too. You don’t need to go to the gym every day to build quality muscle mass, in fact, many people are making the mistake of lifting weights every day, especially those, who don’t use supplements as an addition to their diet. It is recommended that you lift weights only 3 to 4 times in a week. This will give the body the needed time to recover and prepare it for the upcoming workout.

After taking care of the fitness training, you also need to fix your diet as this is the most important part of maintaining a fit body. There is a famous saying ‘You are What You Eat’ and that is totally right!
So every time you eat a hamburger, French fries or sweets, you are damaging your body. Fast food doesn’t build muscles, Salmon fish and sweet potatoes do, so you better take those hamburgers off from your list. There are a good number of healthy foods that build quality muscle mass like chicken steak, beef, fish, eggs, milk, nuts, brown rice, potatoes and oat flakes.
Don’t forget to add a lot of vegetables and fruits into your diet because they are a great source of vitamins and minerals that are needed for proper functioning of the body and for building the muscles. If you want to lose weight, you need to lower your daily calorie intake.
So let’s say you are working out and burning 500 calories in around one and a half hour. Also your basal metabolic rate says that the body burns 1700 calories just if you are sitting also. So that is a total of 2200 calories burned in one day. The next step is to monitor the intake of calories via the food that you are eating throughout the day. You need to make sure that you do not consume more than 1700 calories in a day. If you do this on a daily basis, you can lose 1 kilo in just one week.
For those who want to gain muscle mass, the aim needs to be to consume more calories than the body actually burns. So for example, if your body burns 2200 calories, you should increase calorie intake by 500. This will help you gain 1 kg body mass in one week. This is just a simple formula that can be followed to maintain a healthy body.
For this first part that would be all. The second part of this series will talk about more workouts and specific diets. Until then, start following the fitness tips given in this article.
