Things that Can Upset Your Fitness Goals
When things seem not to succeed despite how much you’ve worked hard to reach your health and wellness goals; perhaps, it’s time to consider on whether you are making one of these common health mistakes.
Following the wrong diet plan
If you’re after body fat reduction, at least 70% of your fitness process rests on your diet and cardio exercise activity, while the other 30% involves adding lean muscle mass to your body frame; so, this means that you have to be ultra efficient in burning calories. Focusing your diet program more on protein intake to build muscle mass becomes counterproductive when you experience a chronic stomach upset. When you lose weight solely through dieting, the weight you lose will be predominantly muscle, therefore, pay attention to the quality of your nutrition and eat healthier, if your goal is weight loss. But when you lose weight through a combination of improved diet, cardio workouts and resistance training, you lose proportionally more fat and gain muscle, which means that you don’t simply lose weight on the scale, you change your body’s shape and composition.
Training too hard is not the answer to losing weight, because your body can no longer keep up with the demands being placed on it. By learning to incorporate strength and balance training, you are on your way to achieving your fitness goal.
Associating weight loss to exercise
Most people think that losing weight is just a matter of following an exercise program, such that when they don’t lose weight from this, they give up, to which this mentality is not helping at all, because weight-loss goals must aim to have more energy through the right foods, sleeping better, improving your bone density, getting the right mood, increasing strength and a balance exercise program.
Not being realistic but unrealistic in your fitness goals
When people are not fully aware of the reality of a fitness program, they’ll likely establish unrealistic goals or have the wrong perception of what a fitness program is, and with that, their weight-loss goals fail. The importance of setting a realistic fitness program goal is one that includes your health history, current lifestyle, age, gender and genetic makeup.
Stress, if not controlled, can cause more harm on you, such as a biological effect of increasing the heart rate, breath rate, and blood pressure, while all other body systems, such as digestion, immune response and detoxification, slow down and your body will hold onto fat to energize you back. You not only restore your body metabolism, but also revive your nervous system on a healthy function, when you learn how to manage stress.
