So, you said goodbye to the school, started a wonderful student life and … gained extra weight.
If so, then let me help you and give some tips on how to get yourself back to shape!
1. Practice your favorite sport.
In college, I did cross country and jogging, which helped me to stay in good physical shape, although it took a lot of time.
Find the kind of sport you like and easily get rid of 7 hated kilos!
Today, in almost any city you can find a section of basketball, volleyball, softball, etc. In addition to the fact that you will burn a huge amount of calories, you will also make new friends!
2. Make a daily workout plan.
I understand that it is not easy to combine regular workouts with rich student life, but a clear plan will help you not only lose weight, but also maintain the results achieved.
Of course, the study should be in the first place, but if you competently approach the compilation of your schedule, then you will have time.
For example, record lectures on a dictaphone and listen to them while jogging.
Great life hacking!
3. Take the stairs
How many times have I seen a group of students who have been patiently waiting for an elevator for 5 minutes, instead of going upstairs and burning calories!
If they knew that such a small change in habits, brings great benefits to the body.
Create a healthy precedent among fellow students and climb the stairs to the audience!
4. Consume greens
I know that you probably heard from your mother advice from your childhood to eat more greenery and are already tired of such recommendations. However, it works!
Consumption of greens allows a third to reduce the amount eaten! Also, it will strengthen the immune system.
To burn the average “student” 7 kilos, try to eat 5 servings of greens per day.
5. Drink more water.
Every day you should drink 8-10 glasses of water. This will eliminate abdominal distension, suppress appetite between meals, will also help provide a feeling of satiety, which will significantly reduce the risk of excessive snacking.
It is the latter that is the cause of the collection of the notorious “first-year” 7 kilograms.
6. Limit or eliminate alcohol
I understand correctly that it is quite difficult to give up alcohol in happy student days.
However, if you regularly go in for sports, observe the regime, set goals and achieve them, it will be easier for you to limit its consumption.
If you do decide to drink, do not lose the sense of proportion, be careful and remember that alcohol can be excellent weight gain.
7. Rest actively
Isn’t it great on Friday to go bowling? You will have a great evening and at the same time will be active!
Do not like bowling? Then walk to the nearest pool and swim.
Swimming is an excellent sport, which, by the way, has practically no contraindications!
Whatever type of leisure you choose, try to have it coupled with the movement and aimed at getting rid of excess weight.
Now that you have read my advice, it remains only to take them on board and get ready for hard work.
Are you ready to use my advice to change attitudes toward nutrition and fitness?
