Expert tips for keeping fit when you spend a lot of time in your home
Even when you spend a lot of time in your home, you can eat healthily and exercise with optimal results. To do this, however, it is necessary to have clear ideas on what is best to do and what, instead, should be avoided. Among the most useful tips in this regard, it is possible to mention those provided by MioDottore and nutritionist Anna Domanico.
The expert advises those who aim to maintain a healthy weight and to eat well to start first by structuring the time and setting both meal times and a schedule of activities to carry out during the day. It is also essential to listen to the call of creativity and launch yourself in the preparation of healthy recipes.
Another very important tip for those who want to take care of their nutrition involves listing at least three reasons why they should be grateful. Also not to be overlooked is the importance of fun and that of dedicating at least 30 minutes of your time to physical activity until you get to sweat.
What are the behaviors that should be avoided? At the top of the list drawn up by Dr. Domanico, a nutritionist biologist from Padua, we find the fact of entering the kitchen at random times. To keep fit, it is also important to avoid sitting for more than two consecutive hours. A good idea in this regard involves the fact of putting an alarm on the smartphone following which to get up for a few minutes in order to stretch the legs.
When you spend a lot of time at home, you should also avoid eating while watching the news of the day. It is in fact a behavior that negatively affects satiety, leading to more food (with obvious repercussions on maintaining a healthy weight).
It is also crucial to learn to listen and try to understand when eating out of boredom or to cope with stress. Another behavior that should be avoided is the fact of facing the problems mentioned above without having clearly identified their nature. Finally, it is very important not to get stuck to solve them all together. We conclude by mentioning the importance of introducing two snacks a day – one in the middle of the morning and one in the middle of the afternoon – and of reducing the portions so as to feel the stimulation of hunger at the next meal.
