How long have you been trying to lose weight? You tried dieting, working out in the gym, and many other weight loss methods. You are not the only one. I tried all the latest products, injections, and home remedies trying to lose weight, to no avail.
I know weight loss is hard; that’s why I want to give you 3 easy tips pros do. These will have the weight coming off in no time.
Lose Weight Eating the Right Foods
Avoid eating these foods when you are trying to lose weight and get in shape.
- High fructose corn syrup
- White bread
Don’t eat them because they are damaging to your health, and they prevent you from effectively losing fat. The pounds will melt away if you replace the bad food in your diet with more of these healthy micro‐nutrient rich foods.
- Whole vegetables
- Fresh fruit
Lose Weight Measuring the Right Thing
Did you know you cannot burn fat in one part of your body?
Most people have an area like love handles, stomach, hips, etc. where they would love to lose fat. Because you cannot burn fat in one part of your body, you must lower your overall total body fat percentage to burn fat in any area.
Did you know that while building muscle you may gain weight? Muscle weighs more than fat. Do not make the mistake of thinking that because you are not losing much weight you are not losing fat.
Weight is not a measurement for body fat. When losing fat you really are shrinking your body’s fat cells, unless you undergo a surgical procedure to have fat removed from your body. Monitoring your body fat percentage is the only true measure of fat loss.
Stepping on the scales and seeing you are not losing weight can be demotivating; especially when you have been working out so hard. How do you monitor your body fat?
There are several ways to monitor your body fat percentage including online calculators. One way is to use a body fat caliper. Using this method helps you measure the real amount of fat you are losing and can help motivate you to achieve your goals.
Lose Weight by Recovering Properly
Did you know that you could work out and not see ideal fat loss?
Working out causes tears in your muscle fibers; these tears need proper time to heal to grow. It is possible you could work out 7 days a week for hours each day, but without time for your body to recover you will not increase your muscle mass. Muscle mass burns fat, and is your biggest ally in fat burning. Building muscle mass needs to be done properly to achieve optimal results.
Getting the proper amount of sleep is crucial to fat burning and other body functions too. Because our bodies sleep in 90 minute cycles, you need to tap into your body’s natural sleep cycle. 7.5 to 9 hours sleep is best for recovery, but you should take 1 or 2 days between workouts too.
These are my 3 tips on how to lose weight effectively.
