Eating Healthy on a BUDGET!

Here are 3 tips that will have you on the right track to eating healthy while spending less.

  1. How to Shop – Bargain Hunting sales help you to pay less and get more . You can also bundle -up which allows you to buy on sale and in large quantities to stock up. Lastly shop around! Sometimes the same items that you are waiting to go sale in one location is already on sale at another or even regularly priced cheaper than other stores.
  2. How You Cook! – Baking, steaming, boiling and grilling are all great healthy cooking alternatives to fried foods. When cooking remove all skin and fats from the meats. A clean meal is a clean body!
  3. How You Eat – Portion control is vital. It allows you to monitor your food intake as well as budget your shopping list. Stay away from junk food. Substitution is key! Snacking can get the best of us because junk food like potato chips, cookies, and ice cream taste so good. However, you can find healthy snacks that taste great too. For example, yogurt is nutritious and light.

 

Eating healthy = extending your life! You can do that regardless of your budget. Your body is important and eating right is a major step to staying healthy or improving your health.

8 Tips to get Celeb Fit and Fine!

  1. Make sweat a habit!! –   Commit to doing a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio daily at least 5 times a week. Set a time to do it daily and stick to it to make sure it gets done. Grab a Zumba video, take a kickboxing class, go for a run or hop on the Stairmaster and sweat those pounds away. Sweating consistently by doing cardio daily is key to weight loss!

  2. Abs are made in the kitchen!– If you want sexy abs , then you have to watch what you eat. Adapt a clean eating regiment with lean protein ( fish, chicken, ground turkey breast) , lots of vegetables, fruit, protein shakes and keep your carbs low. Aim to eat 5-6 small meals a day to speed up your metabolism and break down fat quickly. Be sure to keep cheating to a minimum. You won’t be able to fix a bad diet with exercise. Eat clean!

  3. Stay Hydrated!– You should be drinking half your body weight in ounces of water daily. Avoid sugary and high-calorie drinks such as juice, sodas and alcoholic beverages.

  4. Squat, Squat, squat! – Although many celebrities are enhancing their backside with injections you can do it the natural way with SQUATS! At least 2-3 times of week , you should work your buns by doing 3-4 sets of squats, lunges, dead lifts and leg presses with 12-15 reps each set. Do this consistently and you will have the booty of your dreams.

  5. Lift like a BEAST – Find a gym partner and hit the weights. You should engage in weightlifting 3-4 times a week to build muscle as you lean out from your daily cardio. Work a different part of the body each session. Be sure to stretch after each workout.

  6. Make Smart Subsitutions – Skip the ice cream and grab a yogurt or substitute a club soda for your usual Coke. Small substitutions make big gradual changes. Be smart with your eating choices.

  7. Invest in a Heart Rate Monitor – Push yourself daily in your workouts by monitoring how much you burn. If you have a heart rate monitor it allows you to see how hard you are working so that you can challenge yourself to get the best results. Aim to burn 300-500 calories per workout.

  8. Stay Inspired – Remain motivated to achieve your goals by following fitness gurus on social media and find inspiration for workouts in fitness magazines and Youtube. Take advantage of the online resources available. There is a lot of free information on the web that you can use as training materials and to become more educated about appropriate exercises to target your problem areas.
