If you’re looking to get that body you’ve been dying to have, make sure you’re following each and every one of these tips. They’re basic, but they sure do the trick.
1. Listen to Music While You Work Out
Music has a huge impact on the mood. Listening to your favorite tracks while working a sweat will get you more energized.
2. Eat Plenty of Vegetables
Vegetables, especially greens, tomatoes, and asparagus, are low in calorie but very high in volume due to high fiber content. Most fiber cannot be digested and goes through your system, binding to excess cholesterol and other unnecessary elements in the intestine.
3. Get Enough Protein
Protein foods stay in your stomach longer as compared to other foods. Protein makes one feel satisfied longer, hence you eat less.
4. Eat Fruit for Dessert
You can eat too much fruit. Fruit is packed with benefits but also is a natural sugar that if not burned off can cause weight gain. Think of it as a dessert food, so you don’t go overboard.
5. Avoid Starches and Sweets
Such are foods that are metabolized into blood glucose quickly, and this will be your body’s main source of fuel. If you don’t use such fuel through exercising, the body stores it which can end up in fat gain.
6. Weigh Yourself Regularly and Often
Research has it that weighing yourself often, at least everyday, can help you understand your body and improve weight loss efforts.
7. Have 5 to 6 Small Meals or Snacks Om
An empty stomach will send a signal to your liver to make and release glucose into the blood for energy. When you skip meals or when you only eat once or twice a day, it can put your body in starvation mode, and this slows down your metabolism, and causing your body to hold onto food when you do eat.
8. Sleep 8 Hours Every Night
Research has it that sleep deprivation can change appetite hormones, increasing hunger and caloric intake.
9. Put In More Resistance Training When You Workout
Muscle burns more calories at rest than does other body tissues. That being said, if you have more muscle, your will be burning more fat even just sitting!
10. Drink Less Alcohol Or Avoid It Altogether
You eat more if you drink, and alcohol is metabolized like a fat in the body. You wouldn’t want to drink fat if you want to lose weight, would you?
