If you ask us to name what we value the most at HEALBE, it’s the role we play in your health by giving you personalized insights into your daily activities. When it comes to fitness, GoBe2 users have many ways to exercise daily, whether it’s biking, walking a dog, or hitting the gym. Yet there’s one thing about fitness that many get wrong: there is no one-size-fits-all approach to it. That’s why at HEALBE, we have collected five most common misconceptions of getting fitter and healthier.
1. Do crunches for a 6-pack.
No way! All the crunches in the world won’t give you a 6-pack if you’re eating too much. After all, everyone has ab muscles, but you won’t be able to see them if there’s a layer of fat above. If you want to get a 6-pack or even just better defined abs, GoBe2 will help you to make sure you’re on the right way with its automatic calorie count. Once your diet is optimized for your ab goals, you can incorporate ab exercises into your workout routine.
2. To protect your heart you need urgently to lose weight through the hard and frequent workout.
We’re sure you’ve heard the expression “No pain, no gain” but it’s not that simple. Working out is great, but you don’t have to train like a marathon runner to get the results. Even moderate exercises are proven to reduce the risk for heart diseases and strokes – and your GoBe2 will help you to monitor your fitness habits, along with your heart rate.
3. A protein bar is a good substitution for an actual meal.
Never! Right off the bat, skipping meals isn’t good for you, but to substitute them with protein bars is really not good for you. Protein bars are very processed and usually high in carbohydrates and sugars – this means that they require fewer calories to digest diminishing their benefit. While protein bars are a better snack option than a candy bar, they’re definitely not a good replacement for a meal. Luckily, GoBe2 can help you see which snacks give you the best bang for your caloric buck.
4. Find one type of exercise that works and stick with it.
Variety is the spice of life… and your workout routine! In fact, focusing only on one type of exercise will almost always lead to injury. Just like the ideally balanced diet should include equal amounts of fruits, vegetables, grains, and healthy fats and carbohydrates – so should your workout consist of strength, cardio, and mobility exercises.
5. You can eat whatever you want if you work out hard enough.
Sure, you can eat whatever you want, if in moderation. But your workout shouldn’t serve the purpose of cancelling out a ton of extra calories; it should balance and compliment your diet. Think about it like this: workout is about 30% of weight loss, while healthier eating habits is 70%. Your GoBe2 helps you maintain those habits for you to focus on a healthier and balanced life.
With these tips in mind, your new-and-improved workout regimen will surely give you good results. Make sure you have your GoBe2 to track your progress and give you valuable insights about your health habits along the way! https://HEALBE.com/store
