Many people start sweating at the mere thought of having to lose weight and I believe the chief cause of their fear is not the amount of effort or the dedication with which they will have to work, but rather the lack of knowledge.
The scenario is summed up beautifully by the saying, “we fear only the unknown”. This is exactly why we are here to guide you and let you know what you need to do to lose weight so that you’re on the right track. Whether you make it or not or how far you go is up to your own commitment to your goals.
#1. Go natural
Nature is your best friend when it comes to staying fit. One of the major reasons for weight loss is the unimaginable processing that foods undergo thereby losing their nutritional value.
Instead of consuming packaged foods with hundreds of preservatives you should consume foods that have been brought straight from the fields to your table. Next time you go out, opt for a fruit or a fresh juice instead of the bottled juices with added sweeteners.
#2. Eat more proteins
Proteins are dense macronutrients that take longer to get digested. They will satiate your appetite and make sure your cravings stay at bay thereby preventing you from consuming excess calories.
#3. Do more cardio
Cardio is absolutely necessary if you plan on losing weight. Cardio makes sure you break a sweat and increase your body’s metabolism rate so that you end up burning calories even after you’re done with your workout. There are many exercises that can serve to increase your cardiovascular rate such as running, swimming, skipping rope etc. Choose the one that you like the most!
#4. Do more compound exercises
Compound movements make sure that your body is worked collectively instead of targeting one muscle group. This will lead to more calories burnt and quicker weight loss as well as an increase in the metabolism rate for that important after burn.
#5. Start consuming antioxidants
Antioxidants are your best friends since they help you burn fat without even breaking a sweat. Green tea and berries are a great source and once consumed, they increase the body’s metabolism rate which leads to fat burn.
#6. Get moving
There are simple ways to increase your level of activity in everyday life. Park your car further away so you walk for a few extra minutes or choose to take the stairs instead of the elevator and you will soon see that it is these little things that are adding up to make a major difference.
We hope that your qualms have now been taken care off and you are well equipped to take on your goals. Knowledge is Power.
