At Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, are always talking about cosmetics and plastic surgery. But we also encourage you to lead a very healthy lifestyle so that when it reaches a time where you want to enhance a thing or two about your looks; it can be an easy process with very minimal risks.
This month, as the “cold weather” approaches, we will be giving you tips on how you can keep your weight in check, in addition to gaining lean muscles. There’s nothing more “fitspirating” than looking in the mirror and seeing a six-pack forming on your abdomen. You should try it!
To start you off, we will talk about the best foods recommended by fitness gurus to help in muscles formation. And just to let you know, eating these foods without exercise will not give you a six-pack. In fact, you will wait until the cows come home and still there will not be an iota of a six-pack. For everything to work out; you have to incorporate exercise and diet and eventually you will see the results.
Here are the nice and healthy foods you should fill up on (for women) for a wonder body:
Green vegetables: Not only do these veggies help in cancer prevention, they also help you along the way to your lean body and abs. This is because they are very low in calories, with one cup of let’s say spinach containing only 40 calories. They are also a very good source of calcium, which is beneficial for muscle contractions. Just pair them with other healthy foods and you will be well on your way.
Lean meats: This includes chicken, fish, turkey and lean steak. These meats help improve the immune system, as well as build muscles (and this is what we want). Actually, for anyone who wants to build lean muscles, they should make protein the base of their diet. Although a number of people think beef is never good for your diet, they are wrong. Lean beef is one of the best sources of creatine, which your body utilizes to make new muscle fibers. You see; you can enjoy your food and get a six-pack at the same time.
Legumes: If consumed regularly, this food category which includes navy beans, soy beans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans and other types of beans, help in burning fat, building lean muscles and aiding in digestion. This is because legumes are full of iron, protein and fiber, which are the nutrients we need to lose weight effectively and safely.
Eggs: Who doesn’t like eggs? Most of us do love eggs but are afraid to munch on them because of high cholesterol levels. But if we want to burn fat, according to experts, eggs are the go-to food. Although most people might feel the need to worry about their cholesterol if they consume eggs, extensive research has shown that if consumed moderately, like an egg or two a day, you will not have the high cholesterol and you will in fact end up healthier.
Whole grains: You can have these either in the form of breads, cereals or foods like quinoa and enjoy a body that has less fat. In short, whole grains stop fat from being stored in your body, and add more fiber to your diet.
Nuts: Instead of reaching for a bar of chocolate when you feel like snacking, why not reach for nuts, which can include peanuts, cashew nuts, almonds etc? This is because they contain lots of protein and fiber, which is very filling. In addition, they are a good source of magnesium which helps your body produce energy, form and maintain muscle tissue.
There are many other foods out there that can help in your journey to a lean and healthy body, and these include apples, olive oil, berries, Greek yogurt, soy, Oatmeal and dairy products. Just remember, you are what you eat.
Just to mention: if everything fails, i.e. the right diet and exercise, there is liposuction which can be used as a kick starter to your weight goals. Call us today for a FREE consultation then take it from there.
