These are some easy tips to stay healthy without going to the gym.
Monitor Your Eating Habits
The first thing you need is to monitor you eating habits so that you can know what type of food and in how much quantity are you taking every day. Use calorie counter to get an idea about your current calorie consumption. Most of us eat food without counting the total amount of calories present in that food. This leads to an increase in body weight. Most of people do not know their calorie requirement. Our body needs a specific amount of calorie everyday to carry put routine activities. This amount changes with age and is different for men and women, men usually need more calories. You have to check your calorie requirement according to your age and gender.
Now, when you have come to know about your daily calorie requirement then it is the time to make your meal plan according to your calorie intake. Design a meal plan that contains all essential nutrients including proteins, minerals, carbohydrates, vitamins etc. It is highly suggested to add balanced amount of vegetables, fruits and meat in your diet plan. Majority of us take three large meals a day but still feel hungry in between so it is better to take up to six small meals after regular intervals. You will see a clear improvement in your health once you have started eating balanced diet in right proportion.
Drink Plenty of Water
The next and the most important thing is water. You have to drink plenty of water as it is a natural tonic which clears out all the toxic chemicals from our body. Although, there are a large number of drinks but no one can take its place. Many people ask how much water is enough to stay healthy? Answer is there is no limit on the intake of water; you can drink it as much as you can. Tap water is better than cold water so better using tap water. Here, I must share a fact with you. According to majority of studies, most of the soda drinks available in the market affects our health badly. These soft drinks have zero nutritious value and they increases weight up to a great extent so it is better to take fresh juices made from your favorite fruits.
