Health Tips for Women: Getting Lean

Acquiring a lean body requires you to make adjustments in your lifestyle to ensure that you have a consistent workout program, coupled with a healthy eating regimen. Below are a few general tips that you can follow to achieve this.

Calorie intake

A general guide to calorie intake is to consume 10-12 times of your body weight. Women have been taught for a long time that starving themselves will help them lose weight. What this does is to make them smaller but not lean. By taking enough calories for your body weight and incorporating exercise into your routine, you can achieve leanness; not the bodybuilding type but enough to give you definition in your abs, arms and thighs.

Cut down on carbs

The key word here is to cut down. Start by reducing your intake of sugar, including cakes, candy, pies and so on, since these are mostly empty carbs. Focus on eating some healthy starch in reasonable proportions added to a foundation of lean proteins, good fats and plenty of greens.

Don’t fear resistance training

Most ladies fear resistance training due to the misconception that it will make them bulky. This is not true. If you find yourself getting bulky, most probably you are eating more than you should. If you are doing resistance training and eating right, you should get smaller, not bulkier. Resistance training has benefits such as boosted metabolism, weight management and improved muscle tone and strength.

Do a little cardio everyday

Cardio exercises for about 30 minutes every day is beneficial. Overdoing it is counterproductive because it overworks your body, making it catabolic; eating muscle for fuel. As a result, you will have less muscle, meaning that your metabolism goes down. Therefore, the best way to reap the full benefits of cardio exercises is to avoid overdoing them.
