I’ve heard people say exercises are a waste of time for them, that it just doesn’t seem to work. While this is not true, quite a number of people believe this farce.
No cap, exercising and trying to lose weight is tough, annoying, and frustrating, but what it is not, is ‘ineffective.’ It gets easier with the right formula and tricks at your finger tips.
To start with, the success of your weight-loss plan will be determined by your goal, your lifestyle, your willpower at the start-out, and your methods.
In this article, I’ll assume that you have got the methods right, and so i’ll only just drop tips that will aid your result by sensitizing your statement of goal and the lifestyle with which you are running the weight loss plan.
Relax, read and get back on track with my eye-opening tips.
I understand that a lot of people start out with high morale and big dreams, expecting to lose several calories in the first two weeks of the workout. While that is not a problem, at points when expected results are not showing up, they then get weak-willed, disappointed and sometimes frustrated.
One thing I always, always resound to people is the fact that although weight loss is more of a physical activity, it thrives on physiological strength.
Set your mind up for the challenge and understand that it is not magic. That way, you’ll be grateful for each little progress, and will run through the process more easily.
Have a Steady, Manageable Workout Plan.
The best way to lose weight sustainably is to have a steady and realistic plan. Before agreeing to a plan, ask yourself if you can pull the plan through for 6 months conveniently.
Trust me, you do not have to start out with 100 planks and 300 squats daily to lose weight fast. Remember that sustainability is key, and the long run is what matters.
Like you already know, the dividends of exercising gets lost the moment you decide to stop, so my question therefore is, why start if soon you’ll lose it all?
The solution is to build a lifestyle around it. Quit the short term gains and see it more as a long-term investment. That way, you’ll understand that your simple 30 squats today, has better chances of effecting changes than 100 squats will.
According to The NHS, aim to lose no more than 2 lbs (1kg) per week; any thing more than that will leave you at the risk of burning out and giving up.
Have a Targeted Calorie Deficit
Do not leave your diet to chance. It is not enough to just burn more calories than is consumed, have a particular figure in mind as your calorie deficit.
So how this works is that everyday, have a target to burn at least 500 extra calories, so no matter what your calorie intake for the day was, you know that you are not retiring to bed without burning extra 500. (For instance, if you ate 2,500 calories of food, then you are to burn 3,000 calories).
Eat wisely to lose weight fast
Consume foods that have low calorie count and yet get you sufficiently filled. Such foods like roughages, protein, brown rice.
It is called intermittent fasting. And for a lot of people, this does the trick of losing weight fast. You could decide to consistently fast for a portion of the day or week.
You could try the 5:2 diet plan. Here, you eat normally for five days in a week and then eat about 600 calories for the rest of the days in the week.
The 16:8 diet is another option. Here, you can eat anything for 8 hours in a day (usually between 10am and 6pm), and take only water for the remaining 16 hours.
Take just Water
Replace Alcohol, fruit juices, fizzy drinks and even tea and coffee with water in your diet. Water is flat and it has no caloric property, so no matter how much of water you take, it doesn’t increase your calorie count.
Besides, water helps you feel fuller, and it reduces the quantity of food intake especially when taken before a meal.
Lose Weight fast by concentrating on the quality of the loss and not quantity. With weight loss programs, sustainability is key.
