Everyday is a constant battle and struggle to keep your body healthy from bad temptations like fast food restaurants and being lazy to work out ,trust me ,i know that feeling .Like all big goals,it’s not easy to achieve ,but if you know the right path, it doesn’t have to be that hard .Just need to eat healthy meals and work out regularly. I know it’s easier said than done so i will explain to you what you need to do .
Now, before we get started ,there’s a couple of important things you need to know. First thing is about your motivation to lose body fat. You must have a proper motivation, cause without it ,there’s no point in trying, you will stop before you even start. So may people has started eating healthy and working out only to quit a month after. Another thing is when you first start to workout ,don’t do heavy and intensive workout .Take your time for your body to get use to working out cause this is going to be your new lifestyle after all. And last but not least ,be patience .Even in trying to lose fat fast ,realistically speaking ,it is still going to take a little while as you continue to do part .OK, Let’s start now !
Burn more calories than you consume : I know earlier I pretty much said ,don’t go hard in the gym when it’s your first time but eating less foods than when you are working out is the number one rule in losing fat fast. Even though, eating is more important than working out ,you still have to be in caloric deficit .That mean you have to be careful with what you’re putting in your body .You don’t actually have to eat less meals, just don’t eat a lot .
Count your macros intake : This one requires constant calculations as you count your calories, fats ,carbs and proteins consumption for the day and everyday .You do this everyday to fit your macros requirement for a day. You can figure out your macros requirement by doing a simple google search. Then you count your daily macros by reading the nutrition labels on everything you consume and i mean everything. It will be much easier if you use an app to count your macros for you though.
Drink a gallon of water/day : You need to consume a lot water daily .That should be your life goal .It’s good for you skin health and your overall system. Don’t drink a gallon all at once ,it’s extremely hard and will get bloated. you don’t want that .Drink multiple glasses of water throughout the day and couples of bottles when you work out to keep you hydrated .Keep in mind ,you will go the bathroom very often .
Choose a cheat day : The best thing about this is that you don’t have to give up the foods you love as long as it fits your macros. But you should only do this one time a week .This is very important to help fight bad foods temptation. You see, your body has the tendency to crave any foods you deny from it , specially the ones you love. So that way, you won’t have to crave and miss your favorite dishes anymore. Personally ,I don’t believe in strict diet ,they are hard to keep up with. Beside , your eating habit should be a long term goal ,not a three ,four month goal where you can fell off the wagon. Remember ,this is a lifestyle changes .
Cook your own meals : When you are cooking an homemade food ,you know all the ingredients you’re putting in your dish .You can count your macros more efficiently. Also, It’s better to cook your meals in advance for a week ,it helps when you are hungry cause you can just heat it up in a microwave then eat it .You must do that cause when you’re hungry ,your body just wants something quick to digest ,preferably anything that is next you .Don’t forget that eating healthy is the key and also you save money when you cook anyway.
Work out like a beast : Once you start getting use to working out , you should do all type of physical activities like weights lifting ,lots of cardio and body weight movement. Work out four and five times a week should be enough for you and then have three days of rest .You should work all your body parts with proper form ,best way to avoid having hernia. It doesn’t matter the location or the time you choose to work out ,you just need to get your body off the couch.
There you have it ,all these advice break down for you .If you follow all of them ,you will be one step closer to your goal .One thing to keep in mind is that you can’t just choose to follow one advice then forget the rest ,it’s not one way mechanism. They all work together like a circle. Now that you have all the information you need to lose fat,i recommend you embrace your new lifestyle.
