Are you sick and tired of trying to lose weight with really no results? Wasting money on each new fab diet? Well stop, drop what you are doing and listen up! You shouldn’t try yet another diet until you have read this article. The 4 tips of this article are going to put you on the right road for losing weight safely and help you keep the weight off.
These tips are based on scientific principles. They have always been around, it’s just that the most weight loss programs, food industry and pharmaceutical industry don’t want you to know about these principles so they can continue to suck your money dry out of your wallet.
1. Increase Your Metabolism and Gain Lean Muscle
When you are after long term and permanent weight loss, it is extremely important that you are able to boost your metabolism. The best way for you to achieve elevated metabolism is to have functional muscle on your whole body.
One of best proven ways that you can achieve this is through strength training. There are hardly any as successful methods that will provide you with the same results. When you begin your strength training you will notice an increased amount of functional lean muscle on your body. That lets your metabolism to elevate. After just one session you will begin to feel the boost in your metabolism by increased energy. This boost will help you burn your calories a lot faster. Another great exercise is HIIT (high intensity interval training), it both boosts your metabolism but also makes you a real fat-burning machine! If you really want to maximize the metabolism boost and fat shredding, combine HIIT with strength training! Do it on alternate days: HIIT twice or maximum three times per week (it’s so effective!) and strength training approximately three times per week. Remember to have one or two days for rest, too much exercise won’t help you, it just ruins your health!
Lean muscle is another thing you will need to look into when you are trying to lose weight. The amount of fat and calories you will burn, will be directly related to the lean muscle that you add to your body. By having a muscle structure that is able to sustain more energy and the ability to use this energy to great effect, when you are performing strength training, then you will be able to burn off the calories much faster; as well as the excess fat. Once you are able to build more lean muscle through your very own strength then your body will soon be able to burn off fat more efficiently.
2. Decrease Calories
A diet that is low in calories will throw you into starvation mode. Therefore you need to learn how to lower your calorie intake by food choices. You will be able to do this by creating a seven day diet plan and then writing down everything you eat in that week.
After you have done this you will be able to add up the total amount of calories you have eaten and then divide it by seven and you will have your total calorie intake for one day. Once you have figured this out you can begin to find ways to cut that daily calorie count by 100-300 kcal but no more than this to prevent those starvation thoughts from kicking in. This will help you begin to generate a slow weight loss, but the majority of the loss will be fat only.
3. Eat Real Food
And now the real secret that the food industry doesn’t want you to know: omit ALL processed foods from your diet. Eat only real, clean food, avoiding sugar and other high carb food items including starch and legumes. If your body stands, you can have rice or beans (yes, those legumes) in small amounts, but usually those just hinder the weight loss process. Eat green leafy veggies, cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Omit all the fruits except avocados. Eat fresh berries. Use only natural fats, like butter (and other animal-based fats; if anybody claims that they are unhealthy, please do everybody a favor and sue him as he couldn’t be more wrong!), olive oil and coconut oil. Eat fatty meats, lots of fish and eggs. High cholesterol is caused by CARBS, not by the consumed healthy fat!
And for heavens sake, NEVER use canola oil, soybean oil or other vegetable oils than olive oil or coconut oil. You want to lose weight and stay healthy? Then obey this and you’ll see results! When you increase amount of fat in your diet (eaten fat kills body fat!), remember to reduce the amount of carbs. Fats together with carbs is the root of all evil and you lose your health before you manage to pronounce the word “diet”!
4. Fast Walking and Daily Activities
Now, the key to continue your weight loss is to perform brisk walking. Brisk walking helps you continue to burn those calories and keep your weight off that you may have already lost. Keep your daily routines active. Work while standing, walk a lot, carry those shopping bags home or jog or bike to the office. You can even exercise while watching TV! Just keep the movement going on whenever you can so that you burn more calories and keep the metabolism high.
All four of these steps are an important part of reaching your overall weight loss goals. Prior to implementing these tips it is always wise to seek the advice of your doctor, to help you to determine if you are physically able to implement them. But like said, if the doctor considers animal-based, saturated fats dangerous, ditch him because he is just a charlatan and after your money, not your health!
