The Wellness Guide
Restore your H2O
If you wait until you are thirsty before you drink water, you may be slightly dehydrated. Your body is about two-thirds water and to stay well hydrated is essential in helping your body process nutrients and maintain normal circulation, good energy levels and concentration. Try to drink six to eight glasses of water a day to keep your body hydrated and feel your best
Hold on to your lean tissue
You do want to hold on to your muscles because they keep you fit and cost a lot more energy to maintain while your resting! Each pound of lean body mass burns about 14 calories per day while each pound of fat tissue only burns about 2 calories per day. Include protein in every meal to increase your metabolism and make your body work for you!
Pay attention to food quality
Take a pass on “fat-burning-pills” and diet shakes if your goal is to keep fit and stay healthy on the long run. The true way is through proper nutrition – choose organic, clean and whole foods to rebalance your hormones and add more activity to speed up your metabolism. There are no magic pills or shakes for lasting results... just consistency and dedication in your lifestyle.
Body Composition – best index of fitness
Don't focus too much on your weight because the scale doesn’t tell you what your body is made up of. The best index of health, fitness and physical attractiveness is the ratio between body fat / lean tissue. In fact your Body Composition is your best lifestyle indicator!
Take time out to restore your body
Give yourself time to slow down and restore your body with yoga, healing therapies and regular massage treatments. These “Prehab” treats will increase your joint flexibility and promote tissue re-generation. It's a great way to relive stress and enable better sleep. Prehab is much better than Rehab so stay fit and healthy by taking that time out to look after your body.
