Food, food, fabulous food! You nourish my body and uplift my mood.
Food, food, fit for a Queen! Satisfy my tummy but keep my butt lean.
Food is not the problem to losing weight and staying in shape. Food is the answer.
Diet is not a bad word. On the contrary, the word diet is derived from the Greek word diata, which means A Way Of Life. Since it has been proven that we must eat to live, our diet then becomes the way that we live.
Fitness4Her offers sample meal plans that take the guesswork out of dieting. Each satisfying meal will supply you with the vitamins and nutrition that a woman’s body requires. Great tasting foods that add vitality, strength and balance.
Did you know that 70 to 80% of successful weight loss depends on what you eat? Good nutrition is the foundation of good health.
So if you are thinking about starting a diet, but haven’t done so yet, what do you think is holding you back? Could it be that you know that to go on a diet means making changes in the way that you live? Do you fear that you can’t handle the change? Are you afraid that you might have to give up foods in your diet that you associate with happiness and comfort?
Fitness4Her combines diet with exercise for a successful fitness program. While it is true that weight loss is dependent on the foods that you eat, a combination of diet and exercise will give you the best results. The more muscular your body, the easier it is to expend calories. Did you know that for every pound of muscle you build, you burn 35-50 calories each day?
Calorie counting is not necessary and may be too restrictive for a successful diet.
There are two problems with basing your diet on strict calorie-counting: 1) some find it difficult or dull, and dieters with the best of intentions often give up on calorie-counting after a few days; 2) it’s almost impossible to do with any great degree of accuracy.
Instead of stressing calorie counting, the Fitness4Her diet is based on the principles of a healthy lifestyle that anyone can adapt to their way of life.
- Eat often, but eat in small portions.
- Don’t skip meals.
- Don’t forget your fiber.
