2 Easy ways to keep fit in University

This one measures weight, really it does

Costs around 60 cents just to weigh on that thing

In the fast life that we live (or try to live) these days, who in good world has the time to workout let alone take a walk round the corner. That is certainly the case when you are studying at university. There is just no time and even if you do have time then the other thing you run out of is energy.

You have to have time and energy to get any work done and believe me, there is a lot of work to be done when you are at university. I have to keep fit or at least not gain weight and that is why I have been able to come up with some pretty neat tricks in order to keep myself fit while studying hard for that calculus class as well.

Here are the two ways you can lose weight(ideally). These areĀ  solutions that would be useful for anyone but nevertheless, are specifically aimed for people who want to maintain(or loose) weight while they have got not a lot of time in their hands (and let us be honest, who has these days, forget the students section).

  1. Put your laptop and notebooks on a raised platform in your room, ideally in a position where you can work and study while standing. What I did was that I placed my side table on the top of my studying table and then put my laptop on top of that and hence created a standing workstation if you know what I mean. That allowed to be work more efficiently as I did not want to stand long without doing anything. That obviously burns more calories that sitting around all day doing nothing. Just be sure that you do not have any joint problems before making this transformation.
  2. Try to leave for your class 5 or 3 minutes before rather than 10 or 15 minutes before. Obviously, you would walk much faster if you knew you have less time to get to class and that will burn more calories than you strolling along with your friend to a class which starts in about half an hour.

Check these out and let me know whether they worked for you or not. I am always interested in listening to other people suggestions about the ways people can loseweight and keep that weight off and for that, we need weight loss solutions, lots of weight loss solutions.


Beware of these beasts. A single one of these can absolutely ruin your diet and all your weight loss efforts not just because they contain lots of calories and are not fulfilling at all but because these round balls of bread and butter are loaded with empty calories. Lots of sugar and some chocolate too (which also sugar).

A 4 inch diameter doughnut contains about 300 calories. Now you might say that these are a reasonable number of calories and you might even think that one doughnut in breakfast or at lunch would not do much harm to your health and your weight loss efforts but the fact is that a single doughnut can absolutely destroy your diet.

Nothing good can be expected of these items (I am refraining from calling doughnuts as food items) as all they give you is a high dose of sugar and some fat. Bad fat. Massive amount of sugar and useless carbohydrates.

But guess what, that is not the worst part. The worst part is that when you have 1 on them, I can assure you that 90 percent of the time you are going to end up eating about 5 or 6 of them in a single sitting. They do not fill you up and hence, all you manage to achieve after having a couple of doughnuts is to increase your insulin level which eventually falls down as the day progresses and that leaves you craving for more food.

All of you can easily satisfy your sugar teeth by eating lots of fruits and do not forget to eat vegetables which would fill you up for a fraction of calories that are contained in one doughnut and I am talking about plain doughnuts, I do not even want to begin to talk about the bad effects other types of doughnuts bring with them.

So the point of this short post is that, if you want to lose weight or stay at your current weight while improving your health then fill yourself up with good natural food rather than eating junk food because junk food will destroy your body whether you eat them in a low quantity or in excess quantity.

Why little weight training is so important

Weights are your friends when you want to loose weight

Researches have proved that Weight training is super important

To lose weight and then keep off that lost weight you need to do 2 things. Eat less and exercise more. That is about the thousandth time I have repeated that. Obviously, now it should be burned into the memory of your mind that these are the two golden rules of weight loss solutions.

If you ever get confused by all the media hypes about certain stupid way of loosing weight (like getting some insects planted into your stomach to eat up your fat, which is I feel a bit of nonsense) then remind yourself about these two golden rules and remind yourself that you only need to stick to these two in order to successfully lose weight and enjoy your life in whichever way suits you.

In order to keep on loosing weight (assuming your on a weight loss solution) and enjoying the process, you must exercise. Exercise not only boosts your metabolism (the rate at which your body burns fat) but also gives you abundance of energy. It gives your body strength and after a hard workout, your self esteem would get a major boost.

You would be less likely to eat crap food if you workout regularly as you would always think to yourself about the long hours you put in to exercise and the immense benefits it gives you, is just not worth wasting away by eating fast food or some homemade apple pies.

Now, I think we all know that aerobic exercise is for weight loss. Stretching is also for weight loss but I find aerobics (like walking and jogging) to be the most effective but there are some certain benefits that only weight training can give you. Training with weights makes you lose fat and maintains your muscle. Your body works with muscle. Muscles are fat burningĀ furnaces. If you have a lot of muscle you would burn a lot calories just by sitting and watching TV.

Weight training strengthens the bones and releases stress. Most of all, when you are on a diet and you do weight training, almost all the weight that you would lose would be fat. Your belly and lower back will get tighter and you would look slimmer and smarter. You would no longer blot up x times after eating foods and if you have a good muscle mass on your body then you would not have to reduce your food intake so drastically while your trying to lose weight.

Of course, weight training would make you better at any physical chore or sports. So seek advice from your doctor of the benefits of weight training and how to start it (if you are a beginner) in order to integrate weight training into your exercise schedule.
