So many people get unnecessarily lost when it comes to how to lose weight, so today our instructors are going to put together some simple, and proven tips for you to get quick, but lasting rewards for your hard efforts in the gym.
The following steps are proven and very, very effective not only when it comes to removing unwanted body fat but also when it comes to keeping it off in future.
There is so much nonsense out there when it comes to dieting and fat loss that people often overlook the basics which are proven to work.
1) Get A Basic Grasp On Your Calorie Intake
2) Know When To Increase Protein
3) Snack On Protein Rich Food
4) Snack Tubs Rule
5) Enjoy Your Favorite Foods On A Designated Day Off
We’d be pretty bad instructors if we just gave you that list and wished you all the best, of course, so now we’re going to take some time to walk through each one in a bit more detail so you have no doubts or anything else holding you back. The first step is to establish how many calories you take in on average on a daily basis. From this point forwards, eat less calories than that number. That’s the simplicity behind rule number one.
When we diet we tend to hear all kinds of bad things about carbohydrates and therefore we like to cut down the number of carbs we eat. That’s fine, it will help your progress, but you need to do it correctly. Don’t just drop all the carbs from your diet. Cut down if you want but ensure you still get some in your system every day and ensure you increase your protein intake, too.
Rules three and four cover snacking. The most common reason for people failing time and time again when it comes to weight loss is their inability to stop snacking through boredom. Usually, hunger strikes when you’re at work and don’t have any healthy food around you.
Take a few small tubs with you to work, pack them with protein rich foods and enjoy them throughout the day whenever you feel peckish. Protein has far less impact on our fat storage cells than either carbs or fat, so enjoy!
The final rule is the most important of all. Taking a day off may seem like nonsense but it is actually the rule which people are most thankful for when they reach their results. It enables them to eat whatever they want for one day per week and still get results, removing the whole feeling of punishment which is generally associated with trying to get healthy.
So if you fall into the group of people desperately trying to figure out how to lose weight effectively you now have a strong foothold to get moving from. If you’re trying to learn how to build muscle we’ll have another post for you coming up soon.
