Let’s face it: who really wants to bear the weight of a fat belly throughout the entire life? We all want to have a flat belly, and in this article I am going to tell you about how to achieve your weight loss goal. But beware, I am not going to tell you about any ‘weight loss secret’ or ‘magic pill’ or ‘quick fat loss solutions’! Truth to be told, there is really no magic pill or secret when it comes to weight loss; rather, it is YOUR hard work that counts!
You already know that workouts are a good way to burn fat and lose weight, but you should also choose your workouts wisely. If you do only push-ups and abdominal crunches for hours, you are not going to get anywhere near your goal! You should do workouts which involve your body as a whole!
Another thing to keep in mind is that workouts alone cannot help you with weight loss; changing your food habit is equally important! You probably already know that it is time to bid adieu to tasty junk foods. Naturally, you would need to find alternative tasty foods which would keep you away from junk food cravings while at the same time helping you lose fat steadily!
Your diet should consist of all the following types of foods:
-Fiber-rich foods, to help you fight hunger. Fiber-rich foods keep you full for a long time, which means you would find it easier to cut down on your calorie intake, something that is essential for weight loss. Almost all natural fruits and vegetables contain some amount of fiber!
-Nuts and legumes are rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, which again are good for quick weight loss!
-Lean chicken meat is rich in protein, and therefore, helps you burn fat by building strong lean muscles for you!
-And let’s not forget the fact that there are foods made with sugar substitutes; if you find it too hard to control your appetite for sugary foods, you could try out these foods instead!
Diet alone cannot of course help you to lose weight, so let’s get ready for some workouts, shall we? If you are bored of doing ab crunches day after day, I am sure you would find these workouts interesting: plank exercises, hanging leg raises/lifts, crunches using a stability ball, twists with light weight medicine ball or body bar, etc., to name just a few!
For best results, mix up these workouts with some cardios, such as kickboxing, rope jumping, running, brisk walking, swimming, etc. If you follow this workout regimen you would start loving your exercise routine instead of hating it!
To conclude this article, the first thing you need to do in order to lose weight is to start following a healthy, balanced diet. After that, you should organize your workout routine. For starters, you can do high intensity strength training workouts for three days per week and do the cardios on the other three days; in this way you would get a break of one day per week!
