Are you tired of putting in the effort at the gym and not seeing results? You’re not the only one—many have shown the drive, determination, and consistent effort, but have not reached their goals.
But if you’re not ready to take that step—or if you’d prefer to go it alone—then you can do that, too. Check out some insightful tips and strategies specifically designed to help you build strength, gain muscle mass, lose fat, enhance your endurance, and maintain healthy eating habits.
- Make sure you’re eating healthy
Food is what fuels your body to reach your goals, and without proper nutrition through quality foods, you’re likely to stall. Maintain a balanced diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, complex carbohydrates, complete proteins, and healthy fats like fish oils and flax seeds.
- Prepare ahead
Preparing meals in advance gives you the best chance to accomplish your nutrition goals.
- Eat more clean food
Gym trainers have advised their clients to eat five times a day, about every three hours, to stimulate their metabolism including two mini-meals between three basic meals.
- Control your portion sizes
Make sure chicken breasts, (and) meats, are no larger than your palm, and that pasta are no larger than your fists.
- Eat with purpose
Everything you eat should serve some sort of nutritional purpose in your body, fuel your workouts, and (be) geared toward optimizing your body.
