Quarantine Cholesterol Slowing You Down? Here’s What You Need To Do
Getting tired of seeing your flabby belly getting even flabbier ever since the pandemic has forced you to be constrained at home? Read on for 3 most effective strategies to get rid of all that bad cholesterol to get back into shape (and leave everyone wondering how).
Diet, diet, and diet
It goes without saying that your diet is the single most important factor that determines your body type. Junk diet (like fried stuff, fizzy drinks etc) high in fat and cholesterol can lead to accumulation of excessive fat within the body. Obesity is the inevitable result.
You need to watch every single morsel that goes into your mouth. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to shun all fats. You need healthy fats (like HDL cholesterol) in right amounts balanced with the right amounts of carbs and proteins for a healthy body. Making a diet plan (and sticking to it, no matter what) can go a long way in losing all those extra pounds.
Utilize all that free time on your hand to get your body back into shape. You don’t need any sophisticated equipment to workout at home. Sign up for online workout classes to get you going. Aerobic exercises specifically designed to target the areas of fat accumulation (belly, buttocks, thighs etc) can help tone your body by melting away those layers of fat and increasing the lean muscle mass. The key is persistence-don’t stop even if you feel like giving up. That reward of a perfect, fat-less body is too good to give up on.
Where there is a will, there’s a way
Most importantly, persist. If you believe it, you can do it. Believe in yourself that you are capable of getting into a great shape. This decision should not stem from the desire to impress others but in an effort to adopt a healthy and disease-free lifestyle as obesity only paves way for cardiovascular disease.
Don’t reach for that cheeseburger even if your mind whispers it’s just one cheat meal or stop exercising just because it won’t matter if you don’t do it one single day. A sound mind in a sound body is possible only when you adopt a pro-active approach towards a positive lifestyle through sheer hard work and dedication.
