Get that ripped body

When we watch these movies, talent shows, serials, Music and television videos etc. etc., I sit back and wonder, how do I get that ripped look like these upcoming Models and Heroes. Everyone wants to looks nice, feel good, stay healthy. That perfect body is also one of the reasons for confidence and a good Moral booster. Yeah! to get that perfect body to die for, will require a lot of hard work and extremely disciplined focus and determination.

Hmmm, but without following proper rules and without knowing the Do’s and Don’ts…Those months and years of hard workout could still give u nothing and leave you demotivated in the end. That is a common problem everyone falls prey to.

Lay of the sauce:All u party lovers have to keep your hands off alcohol. Alcohol causes fat to be stored instead of being used for energy. Essentially, your body will put a hold on the digestion of any food until the liver can excrete the alcohol. Alcohol also hurts you in two other areas, "It is a diuretic which dehydrates you and reduces energy levels. It also can decrease testosterone in our bodies which is critical for creating muscle,"

Substitute veggies with your fruits: Fruit is great, we have all been learning this since our school times. It is full of nutrients and antioxidants to help protect the body, but the downside is that they’re also full of sugars (carbs). How do you not lose out on all the benefits? Swap in veggies for fruit. This strategy allows you to keep the nutrients and antioxidants, but your sugar/carb and total calorie intake will be reduced. Bingo! Problem solved.

Ditch cardio for weights and circuits: Want to get lean, hit the cardio machine. Wrong. “You will not make more muscle this route,” says Tim McComsey (renowned Fitness expert and Dietitian). When you do cardio you're burning calories, but you're missing the muscle growth stimulation from weight training. "The more muscle that you have, the more calories and fat you'll be burning," he says. So it is highly recommended to hit the weight room 3-4 days per week with one of the days being a circuit style with a variety of exercises

Eat more fat:  “Fat doesn’t make you fat, too much food makes you fat,” Consuming more fat in your diet will actually help curb cravings after you’ve reduced your carb intake. Fats help curb hunger because it takes the body longer to break down, use or store. Hormones also play a role, especially when it comes to muscle-supporting testosterone. Fats are needed to create and balance out hormones in our body to function normally.

Have a carbohydrate strategy: We’ve heard it all before, “carbs are the enemy.” Well, not really. Completely slashing your carbohydrate intake will certainly help with dropping the pounds (and fast) but you’ll also be left feeling cranky, tired and lethargic. Carbs are essential for life as our brain and CNS requires them continuously to work properly. Restricting carbs completely will allow for any muscle mass to be metabolized to provide us with energy.

I hope some of these pointers would be of a little use to all you people. One must always work hard and eat smart. Cutting off something completely from a normal routine is not recommended unless and until you have successfully researched its side effects. Eat smart and stay Fit!
