We all want to look good and to achieve our desired look, we often have to lose weight. But how do I lose weight? Well I’m going to be talking about losing weight. The importance of losing weight safely and the effects of a healthy weight loss program. I will be guiding you on the best methods of weight loss, that are sustainable.
How do I lose weight.
The best place to start is always at the beginning. You’re interested in losing weight, but you’re not sure what’s the best route to take. If, you go on a diet, you’ll lose weight and when you leave your diet. You’ll more than likely put on all the weight you lost and maybe more. So that approach can’t be the best.
OK, well how do I lose weight? Do I hit the gym? Let’s take a good look at how this might work out. Your local gym can offer you a lot of variety. It will allow you to train different areas of your body, such as cardiovascular and strength. That also means a lot of distractions. It’s a fact that a lot of people who visits their local gym, do it to socialize and not to lose weight!
But this isn’t what you’re there for, you want to know how do I lose weight? You’ve got a rough idea and you’re doing your best to see it through. You haven’t done bad, you’re in a place where losing weight is possible, but difficult. Your chances of losing weight are good, it will happen over time. The only downside is trying to sustain your training regime. It will require serious motivation.
Things you need to know!
Here’s the good news, everything is possible, with the right motivation. But sometimes that’s not enough! There’s some questions that needs answering, try to look at this as your road map for success.
- Is sweets, cakes, chocolates and sugary drinks a staple part of your diet?
- How much spare time do you have?
- What’s your body type?
- Do you have any health problems?
- How much weight do you want to lose?
These questions need to be answered. You cannot fight against your body or Mother Nature, it’s a fight you will not win. I would like to show you how to work with yourself, for the best results. But also bear in mind that any exercise benefits will depend on your height, weight, intensity and duration.
Will losing weight, help with body fat?
So have you honestly answered all the questions? If, you have then you’re ready to move forward with a clearer image of what you want to achieve. We all have different body types, for instance:
- Hour glass – The correct name is a Mesomorph.
- Pear – Its correct name is a Endomorph.
- Apple – Also, known as Ectomorph.
Your body type tells you where you’re more likely to store body fat. This is what Mother Nature has given you. Remember I said you shouldn’t try to fight it, working with it is the key.
Is this your body shape? If it is, you’ll have a muscular build and have reasonably good metabolism. Which, makes losing weight easy.
If this is your body type, then you will notice your body has a high proportion of fat and tends to store fat easily.
Is this you? Anyone with this body type will be quite lean and have a long body. Building muscle is often a problem.
Losing weight is about losing body fat. Depending on your body type this could be easy or hard. In most cases no matter how much you exercise or diet, your body type will dictate where you lose weight first. I have had many requests from women asking me how do I lose weight, without losing it from my bust?
Now this could be that they’ve been doing the wrong type of exercises or it’s just their genetics? How many times have you seen someone, you haven’t seen in a while and you can tell they’ve lost weight by the look of their face.
Can I lose weight from home.
Trying to lose weight is not guaranteed from home or in your local gym. Weight loss can happen anywhere you choose to dedicate your time and effort. Training from home means you’ll need to be disciplined and use what you have at home. One of the best exercises you can do from home is jump rope (Skipping), it beats many exercises for burning calories. Which, will in turn lead to losing weight. This will give your cardiovascular system a great workout. Throw in a few strength exercises and you’ve got a recipe for success.
Skip 3 – 4 times a week to burn between 200 – 300 calories every 15 minutes. This is like taking part in 5 rounds of boxing. Luckily no one will be trying to hit you! Mix in a few strength exercises like push-ups and squats for variety. I would like to add your calorie expenditure will be nothing compared to your skipping.
How do I lose weight from my thighs.
In most types of exercises you’re doing, your legs often play a major role. For instance if you’re skipping, your legs will be performing its duty. So, If, you’re running or squatting, your legs are the main working muscle group. Combine a good exercise routine with a sensible eating plan and you’ve nailed it.
Eating lean protein in every meal will help your body burn calories and assist in your weight loss. It’s advised that we consume 0.8 grams of protein, per kilo of body weight. Good sources of protein are:
- Fish – Salmon, Tuna and Mackerel .
- Eggs – A healthy source of protein.
Make sure every meal contains protein, carbohydrates, minerals and fats. Lose weight but stay healthy, that’s the moto to live by.
