Fall is the season where temperatures drop and the days become shorter. The cooler weather and colorful landscapes create the perfect conditions for exercise. If you start working out now, you'll get in shape before the holidays and fit into that tight dress. After a summer of relaxing on the beach, it's time to get moving and clean up your diet. Here are some tips to stay in shape this autumn:
Make a Plan
Take the time to do the math and see how much you can spend on food each week. Once you set a budget, make a grocery list and highlight the essentials. Limit processed foods as much as possible.
For instance, canned tuna is rich in protein and can be used in various recipes, from pasta to salad and stews. Salmon and turkey are a good choice too, but come with a higher price tag. Opt for calorie dense foods like steak and eggs, and high-volume foods that keep you full, such as cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, tomatoes, and lettuce. Drink Click first thing in the morning to boost your energy and stay full longer.
Eat Fat to Burn Fat
Cut back on simple carbs and eat more "good" fats to rev up your metabolism.Omega-3, omega-6, and other essential fatty acids improve cardiovascular health, reduce inflammation, and fight oxidative damage. They also increase satiety and curb hunger, making it easier to eat clean.
Get More Rest
Rest is just as important as exercise and diet. Your muscles grow while you sleep. Moreover, your body produces anabolic hormones at night, which helps build lean muscle and burn fat. If you exercise too hard for too long, you won't have time to recover between workouts. This can increase the stress hormone cortisol levels, cause weight gain, and trigger fatigue.
Train at High Intensity
If you're a regular gym goer, you already know that high intensity training (HIIT) accelerates metabolism and preserves muscle. The best part is that you can mix and match hundreds of different exercises, so you'll never get bored. Keep your cardio sessions short and intense, or replace them with HIIT to boost your metabolism.
