Quarantine Gains, Time to Get Fit 

Despite all of the grief due to what the world is going through right now, there is still hope and time. Look at the bright side, you now have more time for yourself.  what I have personally gained from the situation the world is going through is TIME, time to better myself physically through workouts. I will share with you how I started to better myself.

Here are some hacks to help you lose belly fat while quarantining:

First and foremost, you will need a healthy diet. The following list is a good place to start.
  1. Eat plenty of soluble fiber.
  2. Avoid foods that contains trans fats.
  3. Eat a high protein diet.
  4. Reduce your stress levels.
  5. Don’t eat a lot of sugary foods.
  6. Do aerobic exercise (Cardio).
  7. Cut back on carbs – especially refined carbs.
Next, you will need to make adjustments to your sleeping schedule.

Most people need 7 to 9 hours of sleep at night. If you are training, you may need more, because when you work out you burn more calories than people who don’t, Geier says, “You’re pushing your body in practice, so you need more time to recover.”

The quality and amount of sleep athletes have is often the key to winning. Remember, sleep in particular provides energy to both the brain and the body. If sleep is cut short, the body doesn’t have time to repair memory, consolidate memory, and release hormones. Exercise depletes energy, fluids, and breaks down muscle, therefore a sufficient amount of sleep is a must.

  1. Sleep at least 7 to 9 hours at night.
  2. Maintain a regular bedtime and wakeup time.
  3. Implement a wind-down routine.
  4. Evaluate your sleeping environment.
  5. Reduce your intake of caffeine.
