5 Peculiar But Easily Doable Ways That Could Help You Become Fitter
We know that winter is still on full-throttle. But no one gets their ideal beach body right off the bat when summer rolls around. It’s a matter of dedication and commitment. While there is really no way around the hard work, these peculiar, and extremely easily achievable ways can help ease the process just a little bit. Start doing them now, and you’re on your way to having a body that will draw oohs and aahs!
1.Start eating chunky food
Regardless of whether you’re having a salad, a stew or anything that requires cutting into pieces, have your ingredients cut into big chunks. The chewing will take more effort and more time time and consequently, psychologically make you feel fuller than normal. It’s been proven time and again that taking your time to eat is a key to consuming less. Having chunky food will kickstart you with this habit.
2. Drink water
Water is 100% calorie-free and is scientifically proven to increase energy expenditure and consequently help you lose weight. It’s also been observed that drinking water before meals can suppress your appetite. How do you remind yourself to drink enough, though? Easy peasy. Get yourself an Ozmo Cup, and we’ll do the job for you. Never again will you forget to adequately hydrate your body to hit your fitness goals.
3. Snap pics of what you ate
Living in the 21s century means that most of us are dealing with a million responsibilities simultaneously, and keeping track of what you ate might be one of the few things that fall through the cracks. Snapping a pic of what you ate at each meal is a fast and easy way of logging your daily consumption, and remind you to keep off that incredibly enticing mid-day munch.
4. Have a companion when dining
Admit it or not, everyone is self-conscious. Annihilating an entire pint of ice cream or downing half a dozen bags of chips is made infinitely harder under the keen and judgemental looks of your friends. Being social isn’t your strongest suit? Eat somewhere where a stranger can see you works too, be it a cozy cafe or a park bench!
5. Get a fitness tracker!
One of the biggest obstacles to getting fit is the need to constantly commit yourself to the cause, exacerbated by all the distractions we face on a daily basis. Having a fitness tracker means you’re always reminded of your fitness condition and how well you’re performing. Keeping a log of your exercise levels also gives you motivation to do better and to do more. Big brand trackers like Fitbit, Garmin, Apple Health, Misfit all function phenomenally and are designed to help you reach whatever fitness goals you have. What’s more, they’re all compatible with Ozmo!
