No more excuses! You will be successful at weight loss this time. Weight loss doesn’t have to be difficult, but sometimes we make it that way. Our tips will help you get down to the weight you thought you would never see again and you will get there easily and with no excuses.
One of the best ways to lose weight is by doing sprints. If you’ve ever seen short distance runners in the Olympics, you’ve noticed how lean and shredded they are. Science has proven that high intensity cardio such as sprints, is the most effective way of shedding fat and preserving lean muscle mass.
Set realistic goals on your way to your big goal. Slow and steady always wins the race. Set small goals that are easily obtainable. Losing 10 lbs in two weeks isn’t possible without some serious risks to your health. The smaller the goal, the healthier is usually is, and having small successes more frequently is great motivation.
If you happen to mess up your diet plan, just accept it, don’t beat yourself up over it and get back on track. No one is perfect, and you can just move forward. If you’ve slipped and eaten a little goodie, just do a little more exercise. Don’t beat yourself up if you can’t exercise more though. This will only stop you from reaching your goals. Put one step in front of the other to keep moving on toward your goal!
Exercise will help you lose weight. Studies show that those who exercise, not only lose weight, but keep it off more successfully than those who don’t exercise. Exercise will help raise your metabolic rate and create a calorie deficit, which helps the weight come off quicker. Keep moving to keep the weight off.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator at work everyday and it will help you lose as much as 10 pounds a year. Taking the extra 5 minutes out of your day to take the stairs means you will not have to force yourself to exercise later when you will be easily distracted.
Always eat breakfast first thing in the morning prior to leaving your home. When rushed, you may be easily tempted to grab a prepackaged pastry as you head to work. The only thing you are getting out of these is empty calories. Oatmeal and fruit are great alternatives to have in the morning if you need a quick bite to eat.
To lose weight, you can stop eating a few things that your body does not really need on a daily basis. Start with candy: eat candy only on special occasions. Your body does not need the amount of fat and sugar contained in candy. Avoid extremely oily food and foods saturated with sodium, which is the case for most fast food restaurant menu items.
