Fitness and nutrition guide: The basics of a healthy body

Fitness and nutrition guide: The basics of a healthy body

If you’re looking into healthy weight loss, you may have been left feeling dizzy from the conflicting opinions circulating on the internet. Have you encountered one too many websites telling you to completely cut out carbs, fast for half of the day or add butter to your morning coffee? While it’s easy to get caught up in the ever-increasing list of fad weight-loss diets, there’s one tried and true method that’s known to work time and time again. At Body Balancing Nutrition, we’re here to give you the basic guide to a healthy body – a balanced approach to fitness and nutrition!

Considering Your Body’s Needs 

At Body Balancing Nutrition, we believe that the secret to a healthy body is giving it exactly what it needs. To remain functional and thriving, the human body requires a certain intake of protein, carbohydrates and fats. Without a balanced consumption of these nutrients, your body can face health problems like lethargy, hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies and digestive problems. While it may seem that restrictive diets provide rapid weight loss results, there’s often no real fat loss, but more a loss of lean muscle, water weight and fibre.

Taking Note of Nutrition 

You know what they say… you are what you eat! At Body Balancing Nutrition, we believe that the importance of a nutrient-rich diet cannot be overstated. It’s time to consider your body’s needs and provide it with all of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals to allow it to work at its best. Aim to fill your plate with nutrient-rich foods, like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein-rich legumes. Ensuring the body’s nutritional needs are met will help to improve your energy levels, vitality and overall well-being.

The first step to giving your body exactly what it needs is understanding its unique requirements. While it would make life a lot easier, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition. Each and every person has different nutritional requirements, including caloric intake, protein, vitamins, carbohydrate and fat levels. At Body Balancing Nutrition, we design personalised healthy eating guides for our clients, curated to suit individual tastes, lifestyles and nutritional needs. Our fact-based, scientific approach to nutrition helps our clients feel energised and satisfied, helping them achieve long-lasting weight loss results.

Putting Fitness First 

Did you know that the Australian Department of Health recommends that adults incorporate at least 2.5 hours of moderate-intensity exercise every week? Not only is regular physical activity essential to maintain mobility and cardiovascular health, but it’s been found to reduce brain fog and improve energy levels throughout the day.

If you’re ready to commit to an exercise routine, remember that versatility is key. To gain several benefits from your routine, like improved fitness levels and greater strength, we recommend incorporating a blend of aerobic and resistance training. At Body Balancing Nutrition, we understand that we’re all human and when life gets busy, daily exercise is not always easy to fit in. Luckily, getting active throughout the week is more achievable than seems. Remember, the best exercise method is the one that fits your lifestyle, and every small step counts!

  • Taking your dog for a daily walk
  • Participating in an exercise class with a friend or partner
  • Parking a little further away from work
  • Opting for fun physical activities on the weekend, like hiking or bike riding
