First of all I want to congratulate you who is reading this right now for taking the steps to lose weight. Losing weight is one of the best things that I have ever done, but it also ranks up with one of the hardest things I have ever done as well. The years I spent in the diet industry helped me find out many little, for lack of a better term let’s just call them cheats, that can help speed up your weight loss to help you get the results you want faster. Here are just a few of the ways you can speed up your weight loss.
To Speed Up Your Weight Loss : Find An Eating Pattern That Suits Your Life Style
One of the mistakes that many people will make when starting to lose weight is that they will fall into the trap of believing without a shadow of a doubt that the only way to lose weight is to eat say 5 or 6 small meals per day. Now do not get me wrong, in theory this works, but only if planning and then eating these 6 meals per day fits into your life style. If they do not, then you will find yourself getting stressed trying to find time to make your meals and eat them as well. This can also lead to you skipping one of your 6 mini meals of the day in favor to just eat the first thing you can get. Just make sure you are eating healthy food, but eat it at the times that suit your life style. For example you may work long hours, so say three main meals and two snacks per day fit in better for you. So yeah, as crazy as it sounds, making sure you fit healthy eating around your lifestyle and not the other way round is a great way of making your metabolism work more efficiently.
To Speed Up Your Weight Loss : Make No Excuses When It Comes To Exercise
The biggest thing that can make your weight loss not go as fast as you would like is actually yourself. “I do not have time to go to the gym” or “I cannot afford a gym membership” are things I have heard from clients over and over again. Well this is no excuse at all to not exercise and put your body into over drive. You do not need to go to a gym to exercise. There are literally thousands of workout programs you can download for free on the internet that require nothing, but your own body weight to do them. If you want to lose weight faster then you simply must exercise as well as changing your eating habits.
To Speed Up Your Weight Loss : Challenge Yourself When You Exercise
The best way to get the most out of your workouts and really super charge your weight loss is to not count the amount of calories that you have burned. The best way to get the most out of your workouts is to challenge yourself. For example if you could do 5 press ups last work out then push yourself as hard as you can to beat that number. You ran for 10 minutes yesterday. Well try and beat that today even if it’s just say 30 seconds or a minute more. Always be trying to beat what you did previously and you will not only speed up your weight loss, but you will also improve your mental strength as well as you will see that your hard work really is paying off. So yeah, do not focus on the calories you have burned, look at the reps, weight and time of what exercises it is you are doing and try to beat that.
