Fat Burning Jog (Exercise)
Show the world you are alive by moving that body.
Jogging or walking are great for general fitness and assisting with weight loss.
The most important thing is taking action, as you will not lose weight by talking
The "Fat Burning Jog" is a great way to increase your endurance and lose weight.
The aim is not to jog until you drop; it is to increase your heart rate to an
optimal fat burning rate for at least 30 minutes, at least 4 times a week. This
jog is just faster than a brisk walk, you will need good jogging shoes and a
heart monitor that can be purchase at most sports stores. There are numerous
ways to calculate the optimal heart rate; the following is just one of them.
Different body types and cultures eat differently, but as a rule of thumb the
body needs nutrition from a variety of sources such as fruit, vegetables, seeds
Remember the closer these foods are to living, the more life you will
have. This means stay away from processed foods and Eat Fresh! Eating fresh
will also reduce your carbon footprint.
Reduce Meat Consumption
Reduce the amount of meat you consume so that your meals are 75% Vegetables and Salad,
for a healthy meal. Consume the Salad first to help with better digestion and do not rush,
as you may end up over eating.
Fruit gives your body the much needed vitamins, fluids, fibre and antioxidants it
needs for the day. Having fruit in the morning will make you feel lighter; they
are also great for snacks.
Water is one of the key ingredients your body needs to lose weight and keep it off.
A decrease in water intake will increase fat deposits, so ensure your eating habits
include water rich foods and healthy water consumption.
Drinking soft drinks (pop/soda) should be stopped altogether, the amount of sugar
contained in these drinks are not good for you. In addition, stop or reduce the
amount of coffee and beer you consume.

Your body needs to rest, even though you might not want to. Sleep researchers have
found that a lack of sleep impacts your health, safety, and longevity. So, ensure
you receive 7 to 9 hours of sleep each day.
The "Sleep Medicine Program" at the New York University School of Medicine in
New York City has found that when you donít get enough sleep, there is a chance
you will not feel as satisfied after you eat. Also, lack of sleep can stimulate
your appetite, meaning you want to eat more. This combination means you will have
a high chance of over eating when you have lack of sleep.
The key to creating healthy habits is taking action, although do not try doing
everything at once, else you will end up doing nothing. Choose 1 or 2 habits
and work on them first then move onto the others, and continually set measurable
goals for yourself to achieve.
