Video: Energizing Honey
The parties came and went, we even ate the traditional tamales on Candelaria Day and celebrated Valentine's Day with sweets and desserts. So the excuses are over, it's time to start! Most of us join the gym, we promise and try everything, even rigorous diets to look and feel better, but it never happens since "extreme methods tend to be short-lived," she says.
Bárbara Trujillo Gómez, personal trainer, assures that changing the routine can be difficult but it is not necessary to spend hours in the gym to get results. "Eating balanced meals and 20 to 30 minutes of physical exercise three to four times a week is essential to help you get in shape and honey can give you the energy you need to persevere with your new lifestyle," says Barbara.
Honey is a totally natural energizer that can be consumed to face a busy day and also to be enjoyed as a sweet reward after a long day at work. Regardless if the activity you do is going to the gym or going for a walk, a spoonful of honey in the water you drink will give you that boost you need to stay motivated and energized. You can also use that extra energy to make other easy changes, such as cooking after work instead of buying food prepared for lunch or dinner. Making your food will not only help you reduce calories but also burn them, because you will be moving from here to there!
Honey is a fast, easy, delicious and totally natural energy source, since it has a particular composition of carbohydrates based on a combination of natural sugars with small amounts of antioxidants, enzymes, minerals, vitamins and amino acids. Regardless of the type of exercise you do, carbohydrates stimulate muscle contractions to help maintain activity level and ultimately achieve your fitness goals.
Barbara invites you to the “Pure Honey Fitness and Energy Challenge” to guide us in a three-month challenge that aims to help us get back on the path to adopt an active lifestyle, all with the help of honey.
Healthy life, girls, take heart.
