The key techniques
If you are trying to achieve any health and fitness
goal you must ensure you are using the techniques to guarantee success.
These can be summarized as:
Set some goals! It is important you think what do
you want to achieve and by when. Then discover the real reason why
you want to train. This focuses the mind, when you are mentally
attuned to the task at hand anything is possible.
Discover your metabolic type, without this information
you will be guessing at what foods are right for you. It would be
unwise to guess what type of fuel to put in your car, especially
if there were hundreds of choices of petrol so why guess with your
body. When you know your metabolic type you will know exactly what
foods to be eating and be on the right path for success.
Tune into your body, the amazing creation that is
your body is continually sending out signals and signs about what
is happening to it. Most people are normally out of touch with their
bodies and do not pick up on these key messages. Look out for and
listen to signals such as being hungry an hour after eating, sugar
cravings, energy dips, poor concentration, changes in feces, persistent
health complaints, allergies and much more. This information will
tell you if you are helping your body or hindering your attempt.
Get exercising, ensure you start and adhere to an
exercise programme. This should include all four essential components
and be part of a lifelong manageable routine. Long 2 hour gym sessions
rarely last as does training at Olympic athlete intensities. An
exercise session should leave you feeling great and energized, not
in pain and exhausted.
Set the lifestyle to suit your new ways. Trying
to achieve your goals without looking at lifestyle aspects is a
huge oversight. The body demands adequate sleep and sunlight exposure.
To this you must start the path to avoiding toxins entering your
body wherever possible by addressing food quality, cooking techniques
and environmental exposure.
Develop the mind set. To change to occur long term
you must be ready to avoid sabotaging yourself during the process
and deflect the negative influence many people inadvertently place
These key steps will put you in the right direction
to achieve success. Feel free to read the further articles on this
