It is necessary though, if you are really serious about your weight loss. So follow the steps given below and see if they make an impact;
Weight Loss Steps to Follow
Limit yourself to these simple steps and see the magic yourself!
1. Lift Weight 3 Times a Week
Almost all the diet plans put forward by weight loss industry ask you to stop eating this and that.
But the best tip out there is to lift weights 2 or 3 times a week. Visit your closest gym and ask the trainer for fitness advice.
Visit your closest gym, grab your fitness gear, do a warm-up, lift weights, and stretch.
Common side effect of losing weight is a slowing metabolism rate. Weight-lifting will drop your weight while maintaining a balanced metabolism rate.
Studies prove that weight-lifting will also help you to build-up muscles while scaring away your fats.
If weight-lifting sounds like a difficult and impossible task, we have the right alternative up our sleeve.
Ignore those hefty items and go for cardio workouts like running, swimming, jogging, walking, or skipping ropes.
Go for resistance training like weight-lifting for speedy results. However, cardio workout will work just best for those who run from intense weight training.
2. Avoid Too Much Sugars and Carbs
Did you know that insulin is the main hormone in your body that stores fat?
Reduce the insulin levels and burn fats in an instant. Sugars and starches (carbs) boost the secretion of insulin in your body.
Your body has both fat weight and water weight. If an insulin level falls upto the safe limit, your kidney will be ready to throw sodium and water out of your body. It reduces that excess water weight and bloating. No ballooning then!
You can lose more than 10 pounds by avoiding sugars and carbohydrates (more than the safe limit) in the first week of your diet plan.
If you reduce fats instead of carbohydrates, you will lose weight but might face more hunger issues. Losing your body weight is useless if you are running around the refrigerator of your house.
Kill your weight and avoid hunger, together!
3. Have More Proteins, Fats, and Vegetables
Include some portion of vegetables with low carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in your daily meal. This meal combo will make you consume 20-25 grams of carbohydrates per day; a recommended range.
Here are some of the most common low-carb veggies we chose for you.
Consuming these green and leafy veggies guarantee a regular intake of minerals, fiber, and vitamins.
Don’t exceed the net recommended carbs per day!
Easily available fat sources are listed down for you.
- Avocado oil
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
You can’t manage to have a diet plan with both low-carbohydrates and low-fats. Don’t be afraid of consuming fats. Following a diet plan doesn’t mean that you should cut down your fats all together.
Olive oil is a good fat source that also adds to the taste of your meal.
Coconut oil tops the list of most-effective fattening oils used in cooking. It has abundance of Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) that give you feelings of fullness.
It is right if we say that proteins are the king of nutrients. Main protein sources are:
- Meat (beef, lamb, bacon, chicken)
- Fish (salmons and lobsters)
- Eggs (best are pastured eggs)
Studies proved that proteins:
- Reduce late-night snacking desire by half.
- Lower your calorie intake by 441 calories.
- Boost metabolism by 80-100 calories/day.
In the first week of your diet plan, expect to lose 5-10 pounds and after that, if you continue to stick to the plan, you will reach your weight loss goal in no time.
You will feel a bit weird in the start but soon you will get used to this regime of fat-burning. Also take note of habits that may hurt your fitness goals.
