Losing weight is probably one of the most difficult goals to achieve in life. Losing weight is difficult, but the most difficult thing is to maintain weight. That’s the reason why having a mentor, family and friends doing it together will really make it super easy and exciting.
Although there are many ways to lose weight, not all options work for everyone. For some people, a simple diet and exercise plan will help them lose weight. For others, diet and exercise are not enough. They will need to take supplements to lose weight and maybe work a little harder than others. There are so many other factors to considering including metabolic status, hormone imbalance, and genetics.
Here are some tips to adhere to, if weight loss/body fat loss is one of your goals.
Avoid junk food, empty calories, refined carbohydrates, and sugar. All of which will cause elevated blood sugar levels and make losing weight and or body fat difficult. All your efforts to lose weight will fail if you can not avoid eating junk food and processed foods. These foods contain many calories and will cause weight gain. You should always try to eat healthily. To make sure you do not give in to temptation, make sure you have meals prepared at home, including raw fruits and fresh organic vegetables. Also, be sure to purchase fresh local produce, grass-fed if possible; wild caught fish and pasture raised organic eggs, free-range is not enough.
Exercises and a balanced diet as a combination are is the best way to lose weight. Strengthening your muscle, getting lean and keeping your heart strong should be a priority. Exercise doesn’t need to be done in the gym, the alternative way is to do your workout in your own home. My programme doesn’t require a gym. Workouts not only accelerate your metabolism, but they also increase muscle mass. The increase in metabolic rate and muscle mass will help you burn more fat in less time, even at rest you’ll burn calories, this is known as the afterburn. You should also try to increase your NEAT – non-exercise activity thermogenesis – If you go to the shops in your car, start walking. If you usually take the elevator, try to climb the stairs. Take the dog for a long walk, or get out worth the kids for a cycle. Concentrate on setting g yourself a daily step challenge. Get people at work involved and create friendly competition.
The most dangerous way of losing weight is to do the trial and error and experimentation, causing yo-yo’ing, on it, off it, gain weight lose weight. This is unsustainable and will cause a sluggish metabolism, demotivation and a lack of sustainability causing failure. Everything you do regarding your health must be guided properly by the expert. You need a mentor who has a proven track record to assist, guide and support you.
