WEIGHT LOSS AND EXERCISING

Wednesday 2/14/18 time 1:44 PM - by Elena Kantaneva

Weight loss and exercises are these two friends always go together hand by hand?

I believe I do not need to mention it happens to many of us. We promise to ourselves that we are going to follow healthy nutrition and regular exercise starting next Monday. We even really start to follow our promise but loose the interest  in 2 weeks or in 2 months. The main reason is that there is not really any fast results happening. 

First of all let me tell you that weight loss does not have direct connection to exercising. 

If you want to loose weight concentrate on nutrition. Exercising helps to keep or build the muscle power and improve cardiovascular system by endurance exercises. 

It is like with every project that you are working in life you would need to answer basic questions:

What result do I want to have?

  • Why do I want it? (There has to be very clear you own reason. Not any kind of general talks about health)
  • How am I going to reach it?
  • When?
  • Where am I at the moment?

These questions are very simple but sometimes it is so difficult to answer without help. We seem to know everything and yet are not able to succeed. That is why professional coaching is so much important. It is a source of help, support, sharing and guidance.

GLYCEMIC INDEX?

Thursday 2/8/18 time 5:01 PM - Elena Kantaneva

«The glycemic index (or GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar (glucose) levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested, absorbed and metabolised and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar (glucose) levels. Low GI carbohydrates – the ones that produce smaller fluctuations in your blood glucose and insulin levels» 

This index is just a ranking nothing more nothing less. It does not count calories . 

If you eat too much of low GI carbs that means that you eat too much and all the extra goes to fat in your body. There is no any kind of mystery behind. If you have broccoli as a side dish on your plate there is no need for a carefully placed load of potatoes or rice. Too much is too much!

Let’s make our portions smaller! Carbs are not proteins if you have eaten to much one day! It is done deal. You made a straight road to collect fat in your body even you have no carbs at all next day. 

If you eat candies 🍭 or cookies every day, plus very healthy fruits 🍎 on top you just need to accept the fact that weight loss is not your priority at the moment and let it be! There is not going to happen any total weight loss even if you exhaust yourself with exercises. It will just make you very tired and angry person with no energy. Life is not about that! So let’s start to treat our body with care: eat smart and train without violence.
