The 5 Things Anyone Can Do To Lose Weight And Stay Healthy

Mar 2, 2008
Are you finding it difficult to keep up with the barrage of health and fitness articles telling you to do nigh-impossible things in an attempt to lose weight and stay fit? Are the rules of nutrition getting increasingly complicated, so much so you've started ignoring them? You're not alone there. More and more people are getting increasingly befuddled with new discoveries of foods or exercises that offer benefits and cause never-heard before diseases.

Keeping your health and fitness routine simple is the key to success. You are more likely to feel encouraged to keep at it if you choose a routine that simple and doable. Staying healthy and fit may seem complicated, but the basics are very simple.

Here are five simple and easy ways you can improve your health and fitness starting today:

Eat Less Food

Do you eat till you are full and then snack as a hobby? Stop! It's simple- the more you eat the fatter and unhealthier you'll be. Eat sensibly. While it is certainly not recommended that you go on a crash diet, no matter how urgently you need to lose weight, it is advisable that you eat smaller portions of food five times a day rather than 3 huge meals daily. Stop eating before you feel full, and drink a glass of water - you'll find that within 10 minutes you'll feel full.

Drink More Water

The recommended daily minimum is 8 glasses o f water. Drink up anytime, anywhere. Water does you a world of good and flushes away unwanted toxins. Drink lots of good clean water and you may start to lose weight and feel better with that one step.

Exercise Daily

It does not matter what exercise you choose to do as long as you do it. If you're fed up of running on the treadmill in a stuffy old gym, grab your beach kit and go out for a run on the beach. Follow it up with a swim in the sea for a complete body work out. You don't need an expensive gym membership to work out. In fact, many experts believe that a more natural workout, with exercises such as running, walking, biking, swimming, push ups, pull ups, sit ups, etc, is actually better for you.

Give up Smoking

Every single cigarette you smoke damages your heart that much more. If you smoke, give it up; if you don't, don't start. If you need help to smoke smoking, don't be ashamed to ask. Cigarettes are highly addictive and often difficult to give up without help. There are a variety of products and services that can help you stop the habit of smoking. The sooner you stop smoking, the better.

Stay Mentally Alert

Indulging in mentally stimulating activities like crosswords and Sudoku helps to stimulate the brain and retard the onset of Alzheimer's and other age-related conditions. You might try Scrabble - if you don't have anyone to play with, try playing an online game of this great lingual exercise.
