Pilates isn’t the best method of burning fat, so you’re going to either need to limit your calorie intake or also add some sort of high-intensity exercise such as swimming or running etc to compliment the Pilates in your exercise regime, this will help to manage your body weight in a balanced way.
Pilates exercise uses many different types of body movements in order to get the body into shape when it comes to balance, core strength and flexibility.
If you’re not getting enough calories throughout the day, you won’t have enough energy to be able to participate in any extended forms of exercise, but it’s also important to keep your calorie intake limited to avoid gaining excess weight.
The basics of a healthy diet for Pilates exercise or for that matter any exercise plan you undertake. You need a healthy eating plan; the few points below are a good starting point.
Eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables on a regular basis. They’re packed with the vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that your body needs.
It’s also a good idea to do your best to avoid too much of fats, oils, salt and sweets in your diet, as they hinder your health and are high in calories with no real nutrition.
Protein intake is important for your body to help add to muscle and you should try and consume the daily recommended amount.
Calcium is used by the body to maintain healthy bones. As Pilates exercise involves a lot of spinal movement, it is good to eat foods containing calcium on a regular basis.
Drinking plenty of water is very important, especially when exercising as dehydration can come on very quickly if your body is low in fluids. Also drinking water is a very good way of helping your body to cleanse it self and a key part of a healthy eating plan.
As with any goal you need to give commitment, dedication and focus when it comes to attaining your goals. To achieve your goals you need to do your Pilates exercises or any exercise on a regular basis and supplement with a good balanced diet and look after your body. Above all else listen to your body and don’t over do it, if you do not feel so good, take it easy let your body rest and recover.
