A good body is 70% diet and 30% training.
The food you put in your mouth acts as fuel and has a direct impact on your body composition, If you eat healthier, high-nutrient foods like lean meats, vegetables, good fats, and complex carbohydrates, your body will have the raw material to lose fat and build muscle. The key to success in any aspect of fitness will always be nutrition. How you eat, when you eat, and what you eat will dramatically affect how you feel and look.
Nutrition will affect every component of your lifestyle, so it should be balanced and coordinated with your desired goals. Without the proper eating habits, say goodbye to any hope you have of building that lean, muscular, and strong body you might have in your mind.
Talking about gym time: I love workout everyday, 7 days a week and a minimum of 1 hour and 40 minutes everyday but I like to do that because I use the workout as a therapy to control my stress and balance my emotions.
But in fact just about fitness goals; It’s really no necessary to workout 7 days a week, in fact it’s necessary hit the gym 3 to 4 times a week for at least 1 hour and 30 minutes.
The resting time is so important when you have fitness goals, yes to rest it’s important because when you rest, you don’t need to eat to much and because of that you will control better your diet
So….. Plan out what days you’ll be hitting the gym so you can start getting into a routine. It’s important to take it slowly at first. Go to the gym three or four times per week. Go too often and you run the risk of getting burned out or injured. A great start would be to formulate a goal that says something like this: “My gym days are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Finally please listen to this key elements to create a fitness plan:
1- Nutrition: Eat 4-6 meals per day to avoid cravings, keep blood sugar levels stable, and keep hunger at bay. If you want to gain weight, it takes more calories. If you want to lose weight, you need to consume fewer. This may be old-school advice, but it works!
2- Cardio: Cardio is important for keeping body-fat levels in check, increasing endurance, and decreasing your risk of cardiovascular disease. Even in the offseason
3- Strength Training: Even if your goal is fat loss, building muscle can help speed up your metabolism and burn many more calories, even when you’re at rest. If muscle gain is the goal, then spending time with the iron is a no-brainer.
4- Supplementation: It’s nearly impossible to get all of your necessary nutrients from food alone. Supplements can help fill gaps in your nutrition and may help you perform better in the gym.
Finding success in fitness requires a healthy nutrition plan, a regimented workout plan, and handful of nutritional supplements. Don’t believe that you can get there by taking shortcuts.
The only way to achieve what you want will be through old-fashioned hard work, discipline, and determination. I believe if you shortcut your efforts, you ultimately shortchange your results.
Remember: no body is perfect and there is not a perfect plan or a perfect human being, you will fail thousands of times before find the way to get where your mind wants to go, but if you don’t give up, you will ended having success… so Believe because if you want to do it, you can do it.
