If you do not get these habits out of your life, it will be very difficult for you to lead a healthy life.
There you are, reading about nutrition, following the Instagram accounts of fit, healthy women, who share their secrets, their recipes … There you are, dedicated to sports, learning to love weights, running in the Usain Bolt style (we are exaggerating), and yet something fails. Your goal seems farther than ever, you feel you have a healthy lifestyle, so what happens?
Sometimes we have such ingrained little habits that boycott our attempt to be healthier.
The truth is that there are many things that we eat or do that make us fat or deregulate the body’s chemical balances, but there are 5 habits that are the worst when it comes to maintaining a healthy life.
These habits according to Sacha Fitness, the trainer and influencer, are terrible for health.
Beyond increasing the chances of getting cancer, the damage they cause to the entire respiratory system (including the heart, skin, and brain) is terrible. It also reduces your lung capacity, so you have less resistance when practicing any sport.
Drink too much
When the drink is no longer casual, the negative effects generated in the body are accentuated. Alcohol leads the body to a state of dehydration that can end in acute pancreatitis, cirrhosis or even affect the heart rhythm. As if that were not enough, alcohol also affects your metabolism causing it to slow down, which increases fat absorption.
– Eat improperly
This includes skipping meals, eating to bursting or doing it very fast, eating fast food, not eating balancedly, not consuming enough, and even eating at different times. Eating improperly could be one of the main reasons for obesity in many cases. Learn to keep a healthy eating routine. Set an alarm that reminds you to eat at your time, measure your meals, keep track of your macronutrients; “Remember that we are what we eat.”
– Do not get enough sleep
The lack of sleep increases the risk of stroke, diabetes, heart attack and hypertension (among other heart problems). It also increases appetite, deregulates the hormonal processes of the body, deteriorates bones and affects memory. There are studies that ensure that those who sleep less than 7 hours have a shorter life expectancy.
– Not drinking enough water
Joint pains, migraine, hypertension, kidney problems and even obesity can be caused by lack of water in the body. Lack of hydration slows your metabolism.
