One of the most important aspects of a good fitness routine is the food that you consume. However, with several crash diets and short cuts popping up almost everyday, most people are doing more harm to their bodies than good.
Here are some simple tips to turn your body into a fat burning machine while keeping it well nourished.
It Is Not About The Calories
On an average an adult needs between 1200 to 2000 calories per day for the body to function at its optimum potential.
The goal of a diet chart is should not be simply counting every calorie. Instead, your diet chart must help you focus on getting the daily required calorie intake from the major food groups, namely – proteins, carbohydrates, fats, fruits and vegetables and dairy products.
While most of these foods are usually off the list when it comes to a crash diet or a weight loss plan, they are essential for your body. As long as they are well-balanced and from the right sources, your body will continue to burn the calories that you consume to digest these food groups and keep you lean.
