4 Tips for Toning Your Physique

We all love to feel healthy, but we also want a body that shows it. Here are a few tips to get your body looking as fit as you feel.

Eat High Nutrient Foods

The worst thing you can do is to starve your body of the nutrients it needs to get through the day. Instead of dieting by eating less, eat smarter- foods high in nutrients and low in artifice. Breads, pastas, and potatoes give you bad carbs, but fruits, vegetables, and whole grains give you good carbs. Also make sure to eat plenty of seeds, nuts, and avocados. Professionals suggest five to six meals per day gives your body the calories to build muscle and burn fat.

Increase Your Protein

Especially as you lose weight fast, your muscles need protein to sustain themselves. Leucine, found in whey, animal proteins, and dairy, directly affects your muscles to prevent muscle loss when losing weight.

Hydrate Yourself

Your muscles are 70-80% water, so if you do not keep yourself hydrated, you will lose muscle. Also maintain the correct balance of electrolytes- sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.

Multitask Your Muscles

Choose and combine exercises that work multiple muscle groups at once for a more efficient workout. You will work every muscle you need with less energy and less time, and working multiple muscles releases more hormones, causing you to burn more calories.
