I remember the time when I struggled with my weight loss, I tried every fad diet plan there is totally desperate to see weight loss results. The only results that I got were an initial weight loss during the first few weeks. But once my body readjusted to the fewer calorie diet plan, weight loss become harder and harder to achieve. Don't fall for all the hype and quick fixes like I did, these fad diets simply don't work. You need to be eating and exercising correctly otherwise you will never see long term weight loss results.
Because to ensure that all the weight that you lose is all fat and not lean body mass. You need to be losing it slowly, look to only ever lose 1 to 2 pounds each week. If you are quite a bit overweight then never lose more than 3 pounds in one week. This is because rapid weight loss will strip your body of muscle, resulting in an even slower metabolic rate. To lose weight and more importantly keep it off, you need to have a fairly fast metabolic rate.
To have the fastest metabolic rate that you can, you need to hold onto your lean muscle mass and increase your metabolism naturally by doing the things that will make it happen. For starters you need to totally change the way that you consume food, forget eating 3 large meals a day, you need to up this to about 5 to 6 meals.
But, how can I lose weight by eating more meals. Simple each meal will be much smaller, plus by eating more often your metabolism will speed up and not slow down trying to conserve calories and body fat.
You will also need to start drinking more water, look to have a large glass every 2 to 3 hours, this again will help speed up your metabolic rate. Due to the fact that water helps in telling your body to transport important nutrients around the body.
Let's give you a few of the best fat burning tips to get you started straight away.
Like I mentioned earlier you will need to start drinking more water, but try adding a slice of lemon to each glass you drink. The reason for this is lemon can help in the detoxification of the liver. One of the main functions of the liver is burning fats, therefore by keeping your liver operating at 100%,will help it to burn fat easier and quicker.
Try to eat fruit before 4 pm, this is because some fruits are high in simple carbohydrates. Better still try to only eat fruits just before your workout, during and straight after finishing your workout. This is because your body will absorb the simple carbohydrates easier than if you were to consume complex carbohydrates at these times.
