Losing weight is not easy. While celebrities manage to flaunt ideal figures all the time, we often tend to forget that they lead different lives. Looking their best at all times is an important part of their lifestyle, and they adopt ways – healthy or unhealthy – to get there. They also happen to have a good bank balance, and sometimes, even better doctors. So as regular folk, it takes a lot more from us to get to our body goals. Patience is one of the key ingredients, as well as a good diet, enough exercise, and an ideal amount of sleep.
As BookMyShow turns 10 in five days, we are here to bust the biggest myths related to weight loss and give you suggestions to shed those extra kilos in the healthiest way possible. Take a look:
Adopt healthy habits
The most important thing to do in order to be healthy and fit is to give up your unhealthy lifestyle. Diets and gyms can only help you in little ways, but bringing about an overall change in your habits can go a long way in ensuring good health. Start by adopting some healthier alternatives, like eating the right food even when you go out, or avoiding junk food at the theatre.
Know what you’re eating
It is generally assumed that meat makes you fat, while veggies and fruits help you lose weight. This is far from true. Many lean meats like chicken, turkey, and especially fish, are good sources of protein that your body needs. Having a protein-rich diet is actually the right way to lose weight, instead of loading yourself with carbs and fats. And don’t be fooled by these veggies that are making you fat.
Get the right playlist
Gyms, trainers, and motivational quotes will not get you in the right mood to work out, but a good playlist will. If you work out in a gym, we suggest you carry your own music, because the music at the gym is generally terrible. Set a playlist as per your mood – Bollywood, EDM, or even Broadway – all you need is the motivation to get up and get going.
Find a new fitness trend
Bored of the same old workout routine? Time to kick it up a notch. Go for something different at your gym, like kickboxing, Zumba, cross-fit training, or simply try the old exercises in a new way. Here is a list of some of the most popular workout trends of last year, so if there is something that piques your interest, give it a shot.
Follow the right people
It is lovely to look at pictures of delicious food on Instagram. But if that is encouraging you to eat junk food at regular intervals, it is time you hit the ‘Unfollow’ button. Instead, follow pages that suggest easy exercises to lose weight, or simple ways to be healthy. Even following your favorite celebs who regularly put up gym selfies can go a long way in motivating your soul.
