Many people are facing challenges on maintaining their weight. I have colleagues who are cutting down on food intake primarily the carbo group of food. A few are on a fruits-and-vegetables only diet. Others are either walking briskly, jogging or running or taking up gym memberships. Yet one or two are in Taichi classes, yoga, and/or line-dancing. And one is into kick-boxing and this one is a lady, mind you. And I applaud them for their efforts.
Common sense tells us that it takes many factors to contribute to weight loss. A site I came across offers a few tips for a quick weight loss.
Top of the list is Exercise. Exercise is key in order to really lose weight. It revs up your metabolism and burns off excess calories.
Weight training is next. Lean muscles can actually speed up your metabolism, and therefore, speed up your body’s fat burning capabilities. Without lean muscle mass, your results will be significantly slowed and be short lived.
Keeping a diary is important to really track your eating habits to track your hunger levels and emotions in connection with food. Being aware of your personal patterns can help you achieve success.
- Focussing on healthy, not getting thin
- Portion control
- Eating slowly
- Eating less fat without forgetting about fat - Fat is a necessary evil. Without good fat, you cannot lose weight. So if you obsess about cutting out every single gram of fat, you are essentially sabotaging your own possible results.
There you go, some tips we could bear in mind when it comes to weight loss the natural way.
