Eating a vegetarian diet comes with many benefits: It reduces harm to the environment, cuts down on animal cruelty, and promotes health in the body, to name a few. However, while many people think that going vegetarian will automatically help them lose weight and live healthier, the vegetarian diet is much more than simply not eating meat. In order to lose weight safely and maintain your health, you have to make sure you are still getting the nutrition your body needs. Here are some essential tips for those who are considering the vegetarian lifestyle.

 

Cut Calories Wisely

 

No matter what kind of diet you do, eating fewer calories than you burn is how you lose weight. While it can be tempting to want to lose weight as fast as possible, it’s important that you do it gradually. Otherwise, you’ll be starving your body of the nutrition it needs; not only is this unhealthy, but it will make it more difficult to manage your weight once it’s down. Set a goal of losing no more than two pounds a week, which generally requires a deficit of 1,000 calories a day. You can also aid your weight loss by adding exercise to your routine. Be sure to consult your doctor to make sure your diet plan is safe for you to take on.

 

During your diet, there may be times when you feel hungrier than usual. Plexus offers Slim Drinks that are great as meal supplements or snacks, such as the Slim Hunger Control and Slim Microbiome Activating. These drinks are completely vegetarian, and they can help you feel more full while fostering your weight-loss goals and supporting your glucose metabolism.

 

Choose Healthy Carbs

 

Many who are trying to lose weight on a vegetarian diet often get tripped up by carbohydrates. If you simply eat more pasta, cereals, chips, and other processed carbs in the absence of meat, however, you won’t lose weight; actually, you’ll probably gain weight. Your calories should consist of no more than 40 percent carbs each day. Limit the amount of bread and pasta you eat and opt for whole-grain when possible. Try to get the bulk of your carbs from vegetables and fruits like kale, spinach, bananas, apples, and carrots.

Get Your Protein

When you live a vegetarian lifestyle, you have to make sure you eat enough protein in your diet. In fact, 30 to 40 percent of your daily caloric intake should be protein. While meat is a primary source of protein, there are more than enough vegetarian sources. For instance, chickpeas, quinoa, beans, lentils, tofu, and tempeh are common vegetarian foods that provide protein — and they can be included in a wide variety of dishes.

Choose Healthy Fats

Finally, it’s essential to make healthy fats a part of your diet. As with protein and carbs, how much fat you should eat depends on your body size and type. As a general rule of thumb, about 20 to 35 percent of your calories should consist of fats each day. Whatever kind of diet you follow, good fats are preferred over bad ones, and there are many ways to get good fats on a vegetarian diet. Avocado is one of the best sources, and it’s also one of the most popular among vegetarians. Other sources of healthy fats are oils, seeds, olives, flaxseed, and cheese.

If you’re going vegetarian, it’s important to ensure you’re getting the proper nutrition you need to remain healthy. Remember to cut your daily caloric intake gradually so that you can stay healthy and maintain your weight once you reach your goal. Look into all the good sources of protein, carbs, and fats so that you can form your meals and snacks around them. The vegetarian lifestyle can be very beneficial if you approach it mindfully.

The Keys to Total Fitness for Busy People

 

For most people, fitness brings up images of running at the park or lifting weights at the gym to have a slimmer waistline and bigger biceps. However, you could have both of those things and still live in abject misery if you don’t take the whole body and mind into consideration. That sounds exhausting, as well as time-consuming, which means it probably won’t fit into your busy schedule. Think again and take a look at what you need to do and how to make it work.

 

Enjoy Your Exercise

 

As one celebrity fitness coach tells Shape magazine, “there’s not one magic workout schedule that will make you burn fat and build lean muscle.” So what do you need? A bit of cardio and a bit of strength training. Activities like team sports, ultimate Frisbee, and yoga meet those requirements. Choose something you like and the fun will keep you coming back for more.

 

Take Some “Me” Time

 

It’s perfectly okay to spoil yourself as it may do you some good. There’s no reason for this to be expensive or time-consuming if you’re willing to think creatively. Imagine an at-home spa where you and a friend take turns giving each other hot rock massages followed by skincare treatments, all while sipping on your tea with relaxing music playing in the background.

 

Learn to Eat Healthfully

 

That exercise isn’t going to do much good if your lunch comes from a taco truck. It’s time for a change, but cooking brings up images of slaving over a stove for hours on end while your tummy grumbles. Banish the thought because you don’t need much time to cook balanced meals, and you’ll save a lot by doing your lunch in large batches that you put in the freezer then pull out later to fill up a Tupperware container that you bring to work.

 

Stay Hydrated

 

There are many people who don’t drink enough water, and the consequences for their health are dire. If you’re one of them, there’s an easy solution: Bring it with you wherever you go and take regular sips when you’re thirsty. You may have read that you need eight glasses a day, but there are very few doctors and fitness instructors who agree with that assessment, as the correct amount depends on your size and how active you are. Just pay attention to your body.

 

Spend Time Outdoors

 

You need sunshine; otherwise, your body can’t produce enough vitamin D, which is vital to warding off conditions such as osteoporosis to depression. That’s just the beginning when it comes to the benefits of nature, says a writer with ZLiving. In numerous studies, the outdoors been shown to improve people’s mood while helping them focus, and all it takes is a lunch break outside. You can also get the fresh air by drinking your coffee outside in the morning.

 

Meditate to Find Calm

 

Have you got five minutes? That’s enough for a mindful session that will not only calm your nerves but give your self-esteem a boost and put you to bed on time. There’s little mystery as to how it works: By slowing down your breathing and focusing your mind on your bodily sensations, you cut short the “fight or flight” response and engage your parasympathetic nervous system, which slows down your heart rate and gives you a relaxing reset.

 

Practice Your Hobby

 

Sometimes all you need is something to look forward to at the end of the day, and activities such as playing the guitar, knitting scarves, or painting portraits deliver that and a whole lot more, says lifestyle website Your Zen Life. Becoming skilled at a hobby naturally makes you more confident while also sparking the creative side of your brain.

 

It does take some effort fitting these activities into your schedule, but it’s worth it if you value your happiness and sanity. Reflect on what you do with your time, then make a few adjustments. You can fit them in.

My Daily Routine, what’s yours?

How many of you finished 2016 sick with flu, bronchitis and breathing issues?

I myself was hoping to start my 2017 with a BANG!…  

Unfortunately, this DID NOT happen – why???  Well, because I started my 2017 still sick with the flu, bronchitis, and asthma!

Does that mean I give up, or get depressed, or does it mean that I GET UP, FIGHT IT and KEEP MOVING?!

 GET UP, KEEP FIGHTING AND KEEP MOVING! #BossUpandRise

I would like to share some of my life hacks, products, discipline, and motivation because regardless of being sick, or life being hard I can’t wait to start every year on the right track!  So, even if you fall off the bandwagon, you need to get up and keep on going!

Routine:

15 minutes after I wake up I drink a warm cup of water and a slice of Lemon

I suffer from Back and Neck problems after suffering an Auto Accident 11 years ago, therefore I HAVE  to do my Yoga stretches on a daily basis before starting my day…One of my favorite stretches and method is: http://www.yogawithadriene.com
