How to get a healthy lifestyle

The summer is over and it's time to change the holiday habits to healthier options. Therefore we're providing you a guide to get a balanced diet and an active lifestyle. Some new exercise clothes also makes exercising a lot more fun!


What and when to eat?

 Did you spend your holiday eating barbecue, snacks and all kinds of dessert? Going back to a healthy diet is a necessity for both your body and your health. Healthy food does not need to be boring, it can be both tasty and fun. Try some new recipes this fall, why not try some RAW meals!


1. Eat 5 fruits or vegetables a day - they are filled with antioxidants and vitamins that keep you healthy and they keep your blood sugar stable. 


2. Bring water everywhere - we're better at drinking water during a workout that during the rest of the day. Keep drinking water through out the day to stay hydrated.  


3. Cut down on dairy - fat milk products increase your cholesterol, try to use less of it and use the skinny alternative instead.   


4. Eat the right fat - don't eliminate fat from your diet, just trade it in for the healthy version. Choose oil over butter and low-fat cheese over full-fat.  


5. Fiber for breakfast - start your day with wholemeal and increase your metabolism for the rest of the day.  


 6. Drink green tea - if you want to increase your calorie output, drink three cups of green tea a day.


7. Eat more often -  try five or six meals a day instead of eating three meals. That way you'll not overeat and keep burning calories all day.  


8. Favor the fish - seafood and fish contains plenty of protein, good fat, vitamins and minerals.   


9. Keep a balanced diet - vary your meals and make sure to get something from each food group each time. 


10.Indulge yourself - in order to keep a healthy diet in the long term you need to cheat every now and then.


It is better to do some kind of workout than none at all. Try different ones until you find one or several that you like. It can be anything from jogging, to dancing, to group workouts or swimming. Try to vary your exercise to include both cardio and weight training as well as different levels of intensity.   


High intensity = healthy.  If you want to burn more calories then you should do more high intensity training, for example intervals. But remember to keep at your own level, if you haven't been exercising then a brisk walk or bike ride could be intense for you. As you get older you loose the type-2 muscles fiber which you can regain by high intense training.    


Weight training keeps you strong and healthy! There are several benefits of weight training, regardless of age. It improves your insulin sensitivity, increases your metabolism, counteract osteoporosis and your blood pressures.You can do weight training both at the gym or at home, the most important thing is to go through all muscle groups at least one time a week.   


Cardio training is the foundation for good health. Cardio training isn't just good for fat burning but also for your heart and blood circulation. It also increases the production of your feel-good hormones: dopamin, serotonin and endorphins. 

Combining different types of workouts makes you feel better and gives you a healthy and strong body. But don't forget to rest in between the sessions, that's when you build muscles. Get at least 7-8 hours a night and take rest days in between tough workouts.
