  1. How to Keep It Off (5 Fit Body Secrets)

    It takes dedicated hard work to drop a significant number of pounds. But afterwards it’s incredibly easy (and frustrating!) to find those pounds creeping back on.

    Maintaining fat loss certainly is possible, however it does require that you remain vigilant with your healthy routine.

    Here are 5 secrets to maintaining your amazing body transformation for life. Think of these as your own personal lifestyle rules and stick with them at least 90% of the time to keep your body healthy and fit.

    Fit Body Secret #1: Don’t Eat Just To Eat

    There is no place in your healthy lifestyle for mindless snacking. I’m talking about a tub of popcorn at the movies or a bag of chips in front of the TV. All the calories ingested from mindless snacking have to end up somewhere…and that somewhere is around your waist or on your thighs.

    Snacks are fine when you are aware of how much you’re eating in order to balance it with the rest of your meals for the day.

    Fit Body Secret #2: Stand (And Walk) When Possible

    Have you heard the saying sitting is the new smoking? The idea is that a lifetime of sitting all-day-every-day is as harmful to your body as smoking. Think for a moment about how much of your day is spent sitting.

    You wake up and sit down for breakfast, sit on the drive to work, take the elevator up and sit for most of 8 hours at work, take the elevator down, sit on the drive home, to eat dinner, and to watch TV.

    That’s quite a bit of time spent sitting! Now imagine if you consciously stood for some of this time each day and took the stairs instead of the elevator. Over weeks, and months, it really adds up in calories burned, muscles engaged, and overall fitness and health.

    Fit Body Secret #3: Avoid Sugar

    I might sound like a broken record about this one, but that’s OK, I’ll keep harping on this point until more people listen. Our bodies weren’t designed to ingest large amounts of sugar on a daily basis. When you regularly take in excess sugar, the results are always the same. You. Gain. Weight.

    The tricky part is that sugar is all around us, so avoiding it takes real vigilance.

    Start with your morning beverage of choice. Does it have sugar in it? Most of the beverages that are blended and brewed at coffee shops are simply vehicles for ingesting sugar. Find a beverage that you enjoy without any added sugar and stick with the rule of not drinking sugary beverages throughout your day.

    Fit Body Secret #4: Keep Dinner Light

    Who says that dinner should be the biggest and heartiest meal of the day? Instead, focus on enjoying light dinners that are centered around protein and veggies and avoid starches and carbs in the evening.

    The recipe below for Beet and Grapefruit Salad is a great example. Add a grilled chicken breast to a serving of this vibrant, fiber-filled salad and you have a nutritious dinner that’s light and healthy.

    Fit Body Secret #5: Always Exercise

    How often do you brush your teeth? Do you sometimes take a few weeks or months off brushing your teeth? Um, no. That’s gross. You brush your teeth everyday as an ongoing habit because you know that the benefits outweigh the slight inconvenience.

    Can you see where I’m going with this? 🙂

    Exercise only truly works when you do it as an ongoing habit because you know that the benefits outweigh the slight inconvenience. It’s part of keeping you healthy. It’s part of who you are.
