3 Easy Ways To Lose Weight And Keep It Off
So you want to lose weight?
There are lots of ways you can lose weight fast.
Some more extreme than others
If you don’t eat for the next 4 weeks you’ll probably lose a significant amount of weight but you really won’t feel very good and you won’t look very good either.
So don’t do that
Your daily calories shouldn’t really drop below 1000.
If they do, then essentially you’ll be starving yourself
Your body and mind can’t function properly, you’ll feel awful and you’ll also be losing muscle as well as fat.
You don’t want to feel hungry and unsatisfied.
Which is what most people endure when they go on a ‘diet’.
So be sensible
Do these 4 things to lose weight
Eat Protein, Fat & Vegetables
Each one of your meals should include a protein source, a fat source and vegetables.
(Avoid the starches) Constructing your meals in this way will automatically lower your carb intake into the recommended range
The importance of eating plenty of protein CAN NOT be overstated.
Protein boosts your metabolism by 80-100 calories per day (meaning you’ll burn an extra 80-100 calories)
High protein diets can also reduce obsessive thoughts about food, reduce desire for late-night snacking by half, and make you so full that you automatically eat fewer calories per day…
When it comes to losing weight, protein is the king of nutrients. Period.
Most of us don’t eat enough vegetables.
You should be going for 2-4 portions PER MEAL!! They’re full of vitamins and minerals (it’s also low carb) what we need to be healthy, look and feel good.
So don’t be scared to load your plate with lots of veg.
Don’t be afraid of eating fat, it’s an essential macro we need to look and feel healthy.
Trying to do both low-carb AND low-fat at the same time is a recipe for failure. It will make you feel miserable and abandon the plan.
Yes that’s right!!! Go for FULL FAT products, cream, yoghurt etc etc.
This is a big one. Where a lot of people come unstuck.
You should go for 3 (or 4) Nutritious meals a day and avoid the snacks.
For example, if you have brekkie and your starving after 1 or 2 hrs and you feel the need to snack, you just haven’t eaten enough of the right foods.
Some think there being ‘good’ by having a small meal but they end up snacking on low-nutritious foods which not only piles on the calories but stops them getting into the fat-burning zone.
So check your portions.
If you think there fine and you still want to snack it’s probably just a bad habit.
So next time stop and ask yourself…..”Am I REALLY hungry??”
Ok the best thing you could be doing is lifting weights 3 times a week or some sort of resistance training.
By lifting weights, you will burn calories and prevent your metabolism from slowing down, which is a common side effect of losing weight
If lifting weights is not an option for you then doing some cardio will work. Running swimming, cycling
