At the age of 33 I was overweight and I had a bulging belly. I had a bad lifestyle and I loved to eat. I did not exercise regularly and I was not taking care of what I ate or drank. One morning around 3am, I suffered a mild heart attack. I woke up sweating with chest pains. I was rushed to the hospital. Lying on the bed all I could think was my wife and 3 children. I knew I had to change.
I made a decision to take better care of myself. Thank god I had the guidance of a personal wellness coach who put me on a program that helped me to better understand how to take better care of myself. I managed to lose up 8 kgs and the best part I managed to deflate my bulging belly as well. Now I feel healthier and the best part is that I can share my experience and knowledge to help others. I realized that there are 10 easy tips that people can apply and do to deflate a bulging belly. To make it easy and accessible to everybody, we have put the 10 tips into a simple to read eBook.
Here are some of the tips to help you get started.
Tip#1 - YOU must know how much calories your body can burn!
This is very important. I did not know anything about the importance of knowing how much calories your body can burn that would determine if you are going to lose, gain or maintain your weight. I also discovered that everybody has a different metabolic rate.
In order to lose weight or to deflate a bulging belly we must know our body's ability. This can be done by finding out about our Base Metabolic Rate or BMR. It is the reading that shows how much our body can burn in a day at rest. From there we can calculate how much calories our body can handle to lose, gain or maintain our weight and heath. This will be called our magic number. We can get our BMR measured using a Tanita Scanner.
Now that we know our Magic Number we can monitor our daily calorie intake to help us achieve our health goals. We must know how much calories are we eating or drinking. Make a point to calculate.
Tip#2 - Drink a lot of Plain Water
Before my heart attack I could not stand drinking plain water. I never knew our body is almost 75% water and that all the organs in our body needed water.
If we are over weight,than we need to drink a lot of plain water. The simple rule is that for every 25kg of our body weight we need 1 litres of plain water. So if your weight is 75kgs, you will need to drink 3 litres of water at the minimum. If you want to lose weight, you need to double your drinking of plain water.
If you are not used to drinking plain water, start today and educate your children.
