Bloated? Here’s the 2 best ways to get rid of that horrible feeling

image

So Christmas. Needless to say, many of us have had “a bit” too much to eat and/or drink.

Here’s how to get rid of that excessive bloated feeling quickly and easily.

1. Drink water. Lots of it. Water is one of the most miraculous things in the world – how about challenging yourself to drink 2.5-4 litres of water every day for 2 weeks and see what happens? Herbal and green tea varieties count too.

2. Exercise. Spending time on the X-trainer is rarely going to be effective. You’re best off doing HIIT (high intensity interval training) such as tabata training, or targeting major muscle groups with 5-7 sets of 20 reps. Fit as Hel member workouts are also ideal for this purpose.

If you’ve got any fitness/lifestyle related questions please post them in our Facebook group. We’re here to help!

Fit as Hel DETOX: How-to

turkey sandwich

I’ve been on a detox for nearly 6 weeks now. I’ll post about my results in another post.

Here are the guidelines for a Fit as Hel detox:

Duration: 1-6 weeks
Nutrition: Follow your own Fit as Hel nutritional guidelines = never overeat and make sure to hit your protein goals.
Hydration: 2.5 litres of a water per day (3 litres for men). No alcohol during the detox.
Exercise: Four 10-15 minute workouts per week (on top of what you’d normally do).

AND THAT’S IT!

I’m going to run Fit as Hel member challenges every now and again. You guys can then post about your experiences (and success) in our closed Facebook group.

All the (home/gym) workouts are naturally provided in “the zone”, as I like to call the restricted content members’ area. If you want your personal nutritional guidelines updated just re-fill in the form in the nutrition bit.

The next detox challenge will run 9th – 13th December (so that you can then eat what you want over Christmas, ha)! Get your friends to take part as well!! (Just click on online membership at the top)

Efficient training

I get bored easily.

I don’t have hours to waste at the gym so I make my training sessions short and intense.

10-30 minutes, that’s it. That’s all I need. And the results keep flooding in.

Short and effective workouts are also included in the Fit as Hel membership. No one physically capable, no matter how busy, can say they “don’t have time to train” anymore.

No more excuses.

Act. Take the first step. Just start.

NOW.
