As a Fitness Instructor, I am asked at least five times per day how to lose weight fast and keep it off. When it comes to losing fat there are three very easy to follow rules which will multiply your results in no time at all and today I’ll share them with you.
We see too many people sucked into flavor of the month celebrity diets every month, struggling along with a diet which resembles a self-punishment regime and getting no results.
Once you begin implementing the five proven points shared today you will begin seeing results no matter what your gym experience or nutritional knowledge. Are you ready? Then let’s begin.
The First Rule: A Calorie Deficit.
If you don’t know what this is don’t worry, we will explain it for you right here. Keep a diary of everything you eat for the next few days and once you have worked out roughly how many calories you consume per day make a conscious effort to lower that figure each day. It’s as simple as that.
The key, however, is in gradually reducing the calorie target each day rather than suddenly jumping head first. Doing this will avoid starvation mode, where your body clings to food as much as it can because it thinks you are starving it. This is why some people seemingly eat nothing and still cannot lose any size.
Having established your current calorie total per day and set a new lower target for yourself, you can begin making the journey there. If it’s a big jump simply cut down your calories by 10 percent each week until you reach your goal. This is way better than one sudden shock jump, and remember the golden rule, you should never go under a thousand calories per day under any circumstances.
Step Two: Increase Your Protein.
These days it is a popular choice to cut down carbohydrates when trying to lose weight but there is one thing you must do otherwise it defeats the whole objective. Eat more protein. If you chop your carbohydrate intake down your body loses it’s primary energy source during exercise. It’s left with a choice between using fat or muscle for fuel and 90% of the time it’s choosing the muscle and you’re losing weight but not fat. Increase your protein intake whenever you cut down carbohydrates.
Fact Number Three: Snacking On Protein Reduces Fat Considerably.
Snacking is the biggest temptation when trying to lose weight and the solution is to use protein rich foods. Not only is this better for your body than sugary, fatty food but it is also proven to have a massively reduced level of fat storage within your body.
Snacking on protein such as tuna fish, chicken breast and turkey is a proven fat loss secret which has been shown time and time again to work with no excuses.
These rules are all proven beyond any doubt. If you look at the best diet plan you will see they are the foundations of which it is set. If you have been trying to figure out how to lose weight fast and have been getting misled by quick fix gimmicks or miracle pill solutions, these three rules will help you to finally get some real and lasting results.
