If you’re like most of us, you know the common weight loss mistakes. Perhaps you had to learn them the hard way like many.
Are you tired of failing to achieve your weight loss goals? Then you’ve come to the right place. Below are the three steps required to achieve the permanent fat loss you desire.
Step 1: Nourish Your Body; Eat Real Food
Real food is not stuff that doesn’t look like anything in nature. It’s not sweetened drinks. Real food doesn’t come in boxes or cans whose ingredients can’t be pronounced. Real food does not use artificial colors, sweeteners, texturizers, or preservatives.
Real foods include fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats and poultry, fish, whole grains and good fats. When you eat real foods like these, your body can be nourished like it needs to be.
When you’re nourished, wonderful things can happen, including:
- You get full faster
- You eat less overall
- You eat fewer calories since the foods you’re eating are inherently lower in calories than the pizza, burgers, fries, chips or whatever other nutritionally dead foods you may have eaten in the past.
- You feel satisfied and fuller longer so your chances of hankering around the refrigerator for a late night snack have just been slashed.
All of which mean: You Iose weight and keep it off. And you are extending your life by eating REAL food, not processed foods that are loaded with nothing but junk!
Step 2: Eat More Frequently
One of the biggest mistakes a person can make is going hours on end without eating. Not only does this slow down the metabolism (again, think starvation mode), it causes a severe drop in blood sugar causing “fog brain” and fatigue.
Long gaps between eating can make you feel down right miserable, making it difficult to function throughout the day and doing nothing for weight loss. Slowing your metabolism induces fat storage rather then fat loss.
Step 3: Exercise
Exercise is absolutely imperative in maintaining a healthy weight and for overall health. We live in an extremely sedentary world sitting in front of computers, our phones, watching TV, etc. Sitting for hours day in and day out is killing us. It leads to not just weight gain, but to diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
And the older we get the more we need to move. Lean tissue continues to decrease with age and that lean tissue is our metabolism. You lose that having minimal muscle and those pounds will continue to pack on! The message is simple, you have got to move.
Find a training program that you will stick with and gives you results. Make sure you are working up a sweat and not just going through the motions of a workout. It is important to push yourself and challenge yourself – safely of course!
Achieve sustainable success and create healthy lifestyle habits that will not throw your body into a tailspin by destroying your metabolism and make you sick later on. (Fad diets, poor eating habits and no exercise, will ALL do this.) Stop sabotaging yourself and avoid the enduring negative consequences that can follow.
Simply eat clean and train smart. Your body will love you for it in more ways then one.
