Loss Tips | How To Lose Weight
Without a doubt, the most commonly asked
question I get when I give a personal training session is, "I really need
some weight loss tips, are there any exercises you can show me to lose fat off
first thing I tell my clients is, "The most important thing you need to do
is get your diet under control. Without a proper diet, you can forget about losing
any fat. I don't care how much exercise you do, or how many supplements or diet
pills you take.
There are foods that can have a dramatic impact on
your weight loss, but that doesn't mean you can just eat the good foods and go
hog wild with everything else. If you do, you're going to stay fat, plain and
The simple fact of the matter is that there is no magical exercise
or miracle pill that is going to help you drop that extra weight unless you get
your diet straightened out.
That being said, here are the weight loss tips
I use every day to help keep that ugly body fat from sticking to my stomach...
Weight Loss Tip #1
Use Whey Protein...
has been a lot of talk about protein lately. Unfortunately, most of it negative.
Protein isn't the miracle supplement most people make it out to be - but it doesn't
deserve the bad reputation is has either.
When used correctly, you can
gain substantial benefits by incorporating whey protein into your diet
Whey Protein Benefits:
- Whey Protein is not stored
as fat as easily as carbohydrates.
- Whey Protein helps repair muscle.
- Whey Protein helps strengthen your immune system.
- Whey Protein
helps shorten recovery time between exercise sessions.
- Whey Protein decreases
your hunger between meals.
- Whey Protein helps build new muscle...
Did you know if you gain 10 pounds of muscle, you will burn an extra
3500 calories per week?
To burn that many calories doing cardio, you'd have
to run for an hour each day of the week!
To build 10 pounds of muscle, feed
your body a high quality whey protein drink 1-3 times a day, and follow my protein
Weight Loss Tips for Whey Protein:
protein is best:
Each type of protein has a specific biological value. The
higher the value, the better it works. Whey protein has the highest biological
value (bv) of any protein (104). Beef has a bv of (80) and soy protein with a
bv of (74). That means whey protein is 23% more effective than beef and 29% more
effective than soy protein at helping you body build lean muscle!
best times to use whey protein are:
- Between meals for a snack.
- 1/2 hour prior to weight training or cardio workout.
following intense exercise to help repair muscle.
Protein Values for Weight Loss:
There are hundreds of whey protein products
on the market today. Based on price, taste and quality This Whey Protein is the
best Whey Protein on the market hands down, it tastes great and mixes easily with
water or milk.
Weight Loss Tip #2
To really kick start your metabolism, you need
to feed your body frequently. Try to get between 5-6 well balanced meals each
day. Shoot for 3-4 small meals with regular food (small portions) and 1-2 protein
drinks or meal replacements.
When you supply your body with constant nourishment,
you are, in effect, turning on your own internal furnace. Most people make the
mistake of eating only two big meals during the day - That's a huge mistake.
Loss Tip for Meal Planning:
Change your dinner menu often. Most people
can eat the same thing for breakfast and lunch but get bored with their dinner
menu. Mix up your dinner menu and never eat the same meal two nights in a row.
When your body doesn't get the nutrients and fuel it needs (protein,
carbohydrates, fat, water and minerals) at short regular intervals , it goes into
self defense mode. And will try to hoard everything fat and carbohydrates for
energy, until it gets a fresh supply the next time you eat.
Think of hoarding
as your bodies built in self defense mechanism. If you didn't know where your
next meal was coming from, wouldn't you save some later? I know I would!
you feed your body what it wants - when it wants it - you are going to be amazed
at what starts to happen. Your energy levels will go up, your workouts will be
more effective and your body fat will go down - sometimes dramatically.
simple way to squeeze in an extra meal on the run is to bring a meal replacement
powder with you when you're out for the day. It's a quick, convenient and nutritionally
balanced meal that's ready in seconds and can be eaten anywhere.
find the meal replacement I use here. It's got 35 grams of high quality whey protein,
8 grams of fiber, is gluten free and the perfect blend of vitamins and minerals
to help feed your body while you're on the go.
Weight Loss Tip #3
I can't emphasize how important it is that
you drink enough water each day. I'm not trying to nag you, (nag nag nag - I couldn't
help myself) but before you dismiss the importance of water consider these facts:
- Water regulates body temperature
- It transports nutrients and oxygen
- Dissolves vitamins and minerals
- Helps detoxify the kidneys and
- And helps suppress your appetite
Make the smart
decision. Drink at least 80 oz. of water every day. Your body will thank you,
and you can thank me later...
Weight Loss Tip #4
People often neglect taking a vitamin
supplement. They think that if they eat a "balanced diet" they are getting
all of the nutrients their body needs.
A lot of health professionals will
tell you that a Multivitamin is not important. "Eat a balanced diet",
they say. "And you will get all of your nutritional needs met through the
food you eat".
Weight Loss Tips for Vitamins:
habit of taking your vitamin first thing in the morning with your breakfast. If
you put off taking your vitamin until later in the day, the less likely you are
of taking it. Here's the multivitamin I take every morning...
Let's get real here for a minute. Even people who are super careful
about their diet are sometimes deficient in vitamins and minerals. You know why?...It's
a little thing called life!
Today's hectic lifestyle makes it extremely
difficult to always eat a well balanced diet. So make sure you've got your bases
covered and take a quality multivitamin and vitamin C every day. You don't need
anything fancy or expensive, just stick to the basics.
