5 Ways Instagram can help you lose weight and get fit

Working out and dieting, ugh! Unless it’s naturally up your ally, keeping a healthy lifestyle can be such a bore. But something tells us that losing weight and getting fit is as easy as 1, 2, 3 –especially when it’s at your fingertips. Thanks to the Internet and nifty apps, many people are jumping on board to a healthier life and actually maintaining it. There’s inspirational weight loss stories on YouTube and fitness blogs, there’s also Instagram. Yes, Instagram. SEE ALSO: Miss Puerto Rico’s weight loss journey to Miss Universe Here are five profiles we suggest you follow on IG for a healthy kick-start to your weight loss journey in 2015. 1) Cardio Exercises You’ve heard it a bunch of times, cardio is probably the best way to drop that water weight and get your active rhythm going. “Cardio Exercises” on Instagram delivers photos of easy-to-do workouts that you can do at home or even during your work break. How about a mini-workout session before you shower? 2) Workout Routine Perhaps cardio is not enough for you, and a workout isn’t a workout without some toning. Check out “Workout Routine,” an account that posts simple yet intense routines to break a sweat at night. Having difficulty understanding some of these “workout” terms? No worries, they also post sample videos. 3) IG Meals A healthy lifestyle depends a lot on what you eat. On “IG Meals” you get a daily serving of some of the healthiest and easy-to-make dishes out there. Every tasty photo includes a full recipe in the caption. 4) Video Meals Another great profile to follow is “Video Meals.” Like the account above, this one focuses on sharing healthy and quick recipes but in a 15-second video. Need something fast and easy to grub? This is the place to hit. SEE ALSO: Touchdown!

It’s the ultimate go-to for inspiration during your weight loss journey.The post 5 Ways Instagram can help you lose weight and get fit appeared first on Voxxi.
