When you get fit, depending on what kind of shape your were in before, is going to reflect how you feel when you are at your ideal fitness level. If you were obese and you lost all the weight down to a normal level your energy and overall health will dramatically increase. If you are just a little out of shape and need to lose 20 lbs you will still greatly notice the difference. Everyone has some room for improvement.
Losing weight isn’t as hard as some people make it out to be. All you have to do is two things. 1. Get on a good diet with restrictions on calories. 2. Get into some type of regular exercise or a job with physical labor. Mix in a little patience and you will lose at least 2 lbs per week. To lose weight the right way takes time. Trying to lose 60 lbs in 4 weeks isn’t even reasonable. A realistic goal should be 2-3 lbs per week consistently.The benefits of getting in shape make it well worth the effort. If you feel stressed get into a workout and watch the stress melt away. If you can’t sleep at night workout before bed and you fall right asleep. If you don’t have energy give your body good nutrition and exercise and watch your energy levels soar. Ok now you get my point. There are many other great reasons to get into shape with zero reasons not to.
Tips & Advice To Get Fit & Lose Weight
- Form a New Diet With Less Calories
- Regular Exercise
- Have Patience
- Lower Your Food Portion Sizes
The first thing you need to do is make a plan. Get a calendar and an accurate scale. Write down your weight on the calender for today’s date then check it each week on the same day. Also go ahead and write down you estimated weight each week to see how far on track you will be. Remember don’t over-do it most of the time 2-3 lbs per week is all you are going to lose in a healthy weight loss program. Planning and sticking with it is going to be a really important part of your weight loss strategy.T
here are many diet programs out there that claim if you buy their products and pay for their services you will have a better chance at losing weight. Truthfully they may help some, but the main thing that all successful diets have in common is calorie restriction. If you normally take in 3000 calories each day cut back at least 25%. Never go under 1200 calories, you won’t be getting the correct nutrition for your body. I would also recommend throwing in a multi-vitamin once per day taken at the same time each day.
Your diet also needs to consist of plenty of good nutrition. Cut out as much refined food, excessive fats, cholesterol, fast food, sweets, and other bad nutrition as you can. Replace it with vegetables, fruits, salads, good fats, good cholesterol, lean meat, nuts, and any other food that is full of good nutrition. Lower your portion sizes! If you don’t do anything thing else lower your portion sizes. Do whatever it takes such as get smaller plates, cook less food, order less food, eat only when your hungry, eat slower, drink water before your meal, anything else that will help you consume less food at each meal.
Once you get your diet in order then its time to start getting the regular exercise. It doesn’t matter what you do as long as it burns a good amount of calories.
Here are some suggestions for exercise :
- Playing Sports
- Going to the Gym
- Bedroom Activities
Getting regular exercise is going to help you burn down those stored up fat calories. If you can find a job that requires a lot of moving around or lifting, that would be one of the easiest ways to stick with exercise. Make sure whatever you choose to do for regular exercise you stick with it. Spend at least 30 minutes 3 times per week.Once you get your weight loss strategy layed out get started immediately. If you have enough patience and perseverance I promise you will be able to lose as much weight as you want. Get this going and don’t just stop with after you start losing weight. Keep it going forever and you will get fit and stay fit while gaining all of the great benefits that come with it. My article may sound simple to some people, but really this is all it takes to lose weight. I myself have experienced a great amount of weight loss and all of these benefits by just following my 2 simple steps. Good Luck!
