Honestly, the idea of crash diets and salad diets can be uncomfortable for many. So can the idea of lifting weights at the gym.

What are some great alternatives to feel good about yourself and stay fit at the same time?

1. For starters, check out this study that reveals how playing a sport is more beneficial than working out at the gym. We recommend you take up a sport and play on a regular basis – it is a social activity and teaches you a lot about team effort and patience along with keeping you fit.
