If you are trying to lose fat and become healthier then you can certainly make it happen.
It is likely that it wont happen overnight, in fact you may not reach your goal for many weeks or months, but with some hard work and plenty of dedication you are certain to succeed.
Here are some tips that will help you achieve guaranteed fat loss.
#1: Set yourself goals
What are your goals? If you do not set any then you have nothing to work towards.
Always set goals, but make sure that the goals you do set are achievable.
You most certainly do not want to have goals that are unattainable. As this will lead to you completely quitting your efforts.
I would also recommend rewarding yourself when you achieve each small goal. Not with food however, perhaps an activity like a trip to the cinema.
These rewards will give you that little extra incentive to work towards your next goal.
#2: Make a plan of action
To achieve your goals you need to plan how you are going to achieve them. This is why you should write a plan of action.
This specific plan will show what you should be eating, plus what exercise you should do.
An example of a good diet plan would be one that is full of ‘whole’ foods, which are foods that are found in their more natural form. This means that they have been minimally processed, so are full of the nutrients your body needs.
This would include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as fibre and protein-rich foods. I would also recommend you eat plenty of good fats too.
As for your workout plan, you should create one based on your own goal. I would recommend though that you workout regularly, give yourself adequate rest and to make sure you push yourself each workout.
If you are not putting in the effort while exercising then you are unlikely to be seeing much benefit.
#3: Warm up before you workout
Each time you exercise you should spend a few minutes warming up.
This is to ensure you muscles are ready for the exercise and less likely to be injured.
Nothing will derail your workout efforts more than being laid up with a long-term injury.
#4: Integrate some weight training
You may think that the best form of exercise for fat burning would be a purely cardio based one, but this is not true.
For best results I would recommend also incorporating some resistance or weight training into the mix too.
When you perform a weight training workout your body will continue to burn calories long after your workout has ended, while the calorie burning will cease at the conclusion of a cardio only workout.
Also, as you are building muscle, you will find that you will be able to burn off more calories even when resting. This is because you RMR or Resting Metabolic Rate will be higher.
#5: Remain dedicated throughout
It may take a little while to reach your weight loss goals (perhaps weeks or even months) but if you remain dedicated throughout then you will get there eventually.
Simply giving up at the first plateau or first sign of trouble will not help.
Hopefully these tips will give you the inspiration to achieve your own goals.
