Although they’ve become almost a normality in today’s society, the days of crash diets and liposuction may not be around for much longer. Many men and women are finding a new trend in slimming down, and it includes eating properly and exercising routinely!

Getting Healthy Tips

Extreme calorie-restricted diets and cosmetic enhancements are becoming less popular. In fact, a crash diet is more detrimental for you than it is healthy. They can damage other areas of the body due to malnutrition, and while liposuction seems like the easy way out, it doesn’t always yield the desired results that patients are hoping for.

In 2015, the Washington Post claimed that gym membership registrations as a whole are on the rise, while health food stores like Whole Foods are seeing some of their most lucrative years yet.

For those looking to start on a healthy path for the first time, eating healthier and getting fit isn’t as difficult as it may seem! Physiotherapists and nutritionists are available to guide you towards physical routines to promote strengthened muscles, slimmer waists and healthier dietary habits.

One of the easiest places to start is by educating yourself on which foods are your healthiest options.

Healthy Foods to Help You Slim Down

  • Matcha Tea (Less Caffeine and Higher Energy Levels)
  • Bone Broth (High in Nutrition and Fewer Calories)
  • Turmeric (Anti-Inflammatory)
  • Coconut Butter (Healthy Fats)
  • Cauliflower (Cancer Fighting)
  • Kale (Packed with Vitamins and Minerals)
  • Organic, Grass-Fed Dairy (No GMOs or Added Hormones)
  • Tigernuts (High Energy Content)
  • Super Smoothies or Fruit Bowls (Packed with Energy and Vitamins)
  • Vegetable Noodles (Replaces Starch)
  • Grain-Free Foods (Reduces the Amount of Carbs Consumed)
  • Activated Charcoal Water (Natural Detoxifier)

Appropriate Fitness Options

Getting into shape doesn’t just include eating healthier. It must be accompanied by the appropriate fitness regime. Everyone’s body is different and it is always best to consult with a physiotherapist to learn proper posture and techniques while working out. However, there are some fitness routines that are best suited for getting into shape and slimming down!

Body weight training is one of the latest trends. Why? Well, it is absolutely free and it can be performed nearly anywhere at any time. The purpose of body weight training is to use your own body as a weight.

For example, skater squats include squatting and raising yourself up to the right or left by lifting your leg. This shifts the weight from one area of the body to the other, ultimately working on the muscle tone in the quads, glutes, hips and outer thighs.

Boxing is another fun way to work up a sweat, and it is one the most desired training methods among celebrities. The high intensity workout will help you lose the pounds in no time, especially when it is paired with healthy eating for an overall healthier way of living.

This is one trend that both health nuts and body professionals hope to stay! Contact Dynamic Physiotherapy today to find out how you can jump on the health bandwagon today.
