Don’t think it’s possible to lose up to 5 pounds a week… without pills, fasting, decreasing calories too much, and crazy fad dieting? Well, if you follow these 7 simple weight loss principles that I practiced on a daily basis that got me AMAZING results, then you’ll see how possible is to get fast results… without the consequences.
7 Simple Weight Loss Principles
1. You’re Throwing Away Your Hard Work By…
Not getting enough sleep! I don’t think most people who are trying to lose weight realize how important it is to get enough sleep. So much focus is placed on diets and exercise plans… and not on the basic human function of sleeping.
Getting enough sleep (7-8 hours) will do wonders for your body in regards to improving your overall health, losing weight, increasing your energy levels, decreasing stress, and more! In fact, you could literally burn up to 500 calories if you get an average of 7-8 hours of rest nightly!
2. You’ll Find It Easier To Eat Healthier If You…
Start your day off eating healthy! First, NEVER skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast is a surefire way to binge later on in the day and it is a surefire way to have super strong craving urges.
If you start your day off eating healthy and nutrient dense foods (such as protein and fiber), not only will you physically be more likely to avoid unhealthy foods later on in the day, you’ll also be more stronger mentally to avoid bad foods.
3. The Best Time Of Day To Workout Is…
In the morning! Why is that? Well, if you do some type of fitness first thing in the morning before you eat, what calories are being burned if you haven’t ate anything yet? That’s right… you’ll burn off stored body fat!
4. You Definitely Should Eat Your Fruits And Veggies… BUT…
Take it easy with fruit. Although fruit is obviously very healthy for you, it’s important that you don’t overdo it. The reason why is because some fruits have a good amount of sugar and calories (such as bananas for example).
As far as veggies are concerned, eat PLENTY of them! Vegetables (especially dark green leafy veggies) are very nutrient dense and have very low calories. In fact, with some vegetables, you’ll burn more calories than the vegetable itself just by eating them!
5. The Most Effective Type Of Cardio To Do Is…
High intensity interval training. H.I.I.T is combining low intensity cardio and high intensity cardio into one. I’m not going to get into all the scientific mumble jumble about why this type of exercising is so effective. Basically, the reason this type of fitness is so effective is because you are combining the benefits of both high intensity and low intensity exercising into one. This in turn burns off a turn of calories, burns off fat, increases your metabolism, increases your energy, and MAINTAINS muscle tissue!
6. What’s More Effective To Lose Weight Fast: Cardio Or Building Muscle?
Believe it or not, building muscle is more effective because you’ll burn calories during AND after you workout. What better way to lose a lot of quickly than exercising at one point of the day and still burn off calories later on?!
7. One Of The Most Guaranteed Ways To Lose Weight Fast Is Right Under Your Nose…
Water! If you drink a minimum of 1/2 your body weight in ounces of fresh water every day, you’ll lose water weight, you’ll detox your body, you’ll build muscle more effectively, you’ll increase your natural energy levels, you’ll decrease hunger pangs and cravings, and so much more!
