Change Your Eating Habits To Kick Start Your Fitness Journey

Summer vacation season crept up on you fast. After being curled up on the couch with snacks all Winter, you’re probably planning to start the latest fad diet, stock up on sports bras and fitness gear, and go hard with the workouts. You’ll get your body right and tight so you can look good on the beach. Then you’ll eat like a bird while on vacation. Afraid you’ll look fat plump in your swimsuits. After stuntin’ for the gram and showing off your beach body, you’ll head back home and back to your old eating habits. If this is you sis, then you’re doing it all wrong. To kick start your fitness journey, first you need to change your eating habits. Period poo. Not just for vacation- but as a lifestyle change.

It’s possible to maintain a healthy weight with diet alone. Hear me out for a second before you jump down my throat. I was able to do it for years before I turned 40 and my metabolism stopped metabolizing lol. Living a very active lifestyle helped a lot. But changing my eating habits is how I was able to maintain my weight without working out consistently. Now I’m not suggesting that you forego fitness since exercise and nutrition go hand and hand. It’s the balancing act for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. So it’s important to get in at least 30 minutes of exercise daily for optimal health. Even if it’s just walking. I’m just highlighting how simply changing your eating habits can get you on the right track.

It’s easy to change your eating habits to maintain a healthy weight. Regardless of your dietary restrictions or preferences. It’s all about portion control and moderation. Overall, you should eat a generally healthy diet. This includes eating several smaller meals throughout the day instead of a few large meals. Cutting back on refined carbs and sugar. Keeping your intake of processed foods at a minimum. Increasing protein, fresh fruits and vegetables. Along with increasing water intake and cutting out soda. And cooking the majority of your meals at home.

But you don’t have to completely deprive yourself of all goodies. As long as it’s an occasional delight and not part of your routine meal plan. Once you change your eating habits and learn how to use portion control and moderation to maintain your weight, then you can develop a workout routine to tone your body and stay fit. This will be the beginning of not only your fitness journey, but your healthy lifestyle journey.
