Hunger pangs, yo-yo diets, and bad workouts can keep you from losing weight as you would like. We have some tips to help you lose weight permanently, including a healthy, balanced diet and the right amount of exercise.
If you want to permanently get rid of these extra pounds, know that …
… It all starts in your head! Why do you want to lose weight? Do you do it for yourself or to please someone else? If you do this for yourself you will be much more likely to get good results.
… You should set some intermediate goals. If you wanted to lose a certain amount of pounds for health reasons, you could lose motivation if you don’t lose them in the time you hoped for. For this it is better to have intermediate goals, for example, to lose only 1/3 of the total kilos you want to lose! And it’s important to celebrate every time a goal is reached and set a new goal right away.
… To lose weight you also need to have fun. There is no need to run 10km a day if you can walk or give up eating any sweets but spend all day thinking about it.
Try running shorter distances, but try to run several times a week and vary your training routines, such as swimming or dancing. The important thing is not to get bored. As for desserts: it is not advisable to eat everything you find in the house, but don’t forbid everything. Find a balance.
With these tips, you will be able to shed the first few pounds.
And always remember these two things: changes don’t happen overnight so you have to arm yourself with patience and whatever you do, you do it for yourself.
START A FOOD DIARY
A study from Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research found that you lose twice as much weight if you use a food diary. If you don’t believe it, try asking yourself these questions: what did I eat during the day? How many liquid calories did I eat? It is usually difficult to remember everything in detail and, if you want to lose weight, it is important to keep calorie intake under control and create a deficit (calories burned> calories eaten). The first step is therefore to learn more about your eating habits by marking each meal in the food diary. Only in this way can bad habits be corrected.
4 BENEFITS OF THE FOOD DIARY :
- A clear summary of the calories taken during the day.
- Reveal bad habits (e.g. too sweet or unnecessary calories)
- Fats, proteins, sugar, and carbohydrates: you will know all about these nutrients, especially if you are getting enough or too much.
- It all starts in the kitchen: if you want to lose weight permanently, you need to change your diet.
FAT BURNING EXERCISES: FROM WALKING TO RUNNING
Aside from changing your diet, incorporating exercise into your routine is just as important!
STEP 1: TRY WALKING
The first step is the most important and also the most difficult! If you’re not ready to run yet, try walking. Walking has many benefits and is within everyone’s reach.
PHASE 2: READY TO RUN
Now that you are ready to start running, would you like to know how to get rid of the extra pounds? Regular resistance training helps boost your basal metabolic rate and help burn calories even after training (which helps you lose weight even more).
If you want to lose weight, you need to work your metabolism at a high intensity. Make sure you vary your running workouts and do strength training as well. This stimulates your body to react to the training stimulus and therefore use more energy.
