A well-defined stomach is something that many people at The Evolution Project, Camberley strive to achieve as well as increasing their health and fitness!
I want to put it out there that NO amount of sit-ups are ever going to change your body if your nutrition, mindset and overall exercise routine are not all geared towards positive change!
Increasing your fitness levels and changing the way you view food can be daunting at first – but the results to your body, health and energy will make every step so worth it!
Compound Exercises – To change your body, you must work your body –as a whole! Your body is a sophisticated piece of biological technology and every cell, muscle and bone is connected! Compound exercises work large groups of muscles, increasing your lean muscles mass and thereby helping you burn fat at a faster rate! Clean and Press, Thrusters, Pull-Ups, Deadlifts are all great examples!
Stress – We all are prone to feeling stressed but if you feel it on a daily basis whether through mental noise or over-training, this can increase cortisol levels in our bodies. Cortisol is great for storing fat-especially around our mid-section so not great when we are looking to see results (long term it will also effect our health!) Rest days, meditation, or getting out in nature are great for re-setting!
Gluten – I personally avoid gluten at all costs being a coeliac but it can have negative effects even if you can stomach eating it! A specific carb found in wheat is Amylopectin A, this causes blood sugar levels to spike and foods with a high glycemic index like gluten-increases inflammation in the body and stores belly fat, making healthy results harder to come by! Healthy grains such as Quinoa are a much better alternative!
Processed Sugars –When you eat a lot of sugar, your body can become insulin resistant, the body has a hard time accessing stored fat to burn off as energy, so it thinks you need more food – and the cycle continues-leading to fat gain!
Focus more on lean proteins, more vegetables, nuts, fruits and you will notice how much more energy you will have and how better you look and feel!
Water – Super essential for fat loss and often overlooked. Fat metabolism takes place in the liver, the key to great liver function is the removal of toxins and waste and that is aided by drinking lots of lovely clean water! Help your body and results and drink up!
