5 Things You Can Change To Be Fit

By Tyler Tefit

Small Changes to Get Fit - 5 Small Changes That Make a Big Difference

Let’s face it - trying to lose weight stinks. America has recently seen an unprecedented rise in obesity rates and a decline in general health. If you are one of the many people who have fell victim to the excess that is the American lifestyle then join the wave of people who are making changes to live longer, happier and above all, healthier. You can change your life too by making small changes to get fit.

There is a lot you can do to start becoming healthier and get fitter. Regardless of what you may have heard there is no overnight weight loss diet and even if there was it would not be healthy for you. Here are a few small changes to get fit gradually and safely.

Drink, drink, drink...water!

Toss out the sugar filled sodas and juices and focus on giving your body the standard daily amount of water. Drink eight glasses a day. This is incredibly important to do since any weight loss process causes your body to lose water, not to mention your body needs it to operate at peak performance.

Stop eating fast food

When you eat out you are not just eating a sandwich with a few simple ingredients like bread, cheese and meat. All of those things are loaded with preservatives, chemicals you can’t pronounce and fillers you didn’t even know existed. Your body did not evolve to eat this and consuming it just hinders your body from functioning to the best of its’ ability. Aside from the overwhelming ingredient list you are also more likely to consume unhealthy trans and saturated fats when dining out. These are “sticky” fats that can cling to the inside of your arteries.

Stop thinking you are doing more than you really are

If you are one of those people who is overweight and comes home from work, walks their dog for three minutes and calls it a workout you might want to give yourself a reality check. Physical activity on any level is better than nothing at all, but it is important to workout vigorously if you really want to get fit.

Trade in a lazy hobby for an active one

Love watching TV and movies on the weekend? Try trading in a couch potato activity for an active and healthy one, like bicycle riding or hiking at nearby parks.

Eat more fruits and vegetables

This will not only increase your health but in the long run help you to live longer. Studies are showing that the people who live the longest eat primarily plant based diets and suffer much lower rates of disease, not to mention lower obesity rates.

Now that you have five, simple and easy to implement changes to gain a fitter lifestyle all you have to do is take action. Everything you read above can be put into your lifestyle today and drastically change your life by making these small changes to get fit. Getting fitter comes in baby steps and consistency is key. All you have to do is take the first step and keep going.
