Losing fat shouldn't be as hard as many people try to make it. People who are desperate to lose fat are often prone to take more risks (something that I try to help you avoid). The truth is that with some basic principles you can make some serious progress toward fat loss without any major effort. Often a client will come to me looking for some hints that will help them shed some weight quickly. I am always happy to tell them my "secret" tips that are always surprisingly effective. In fact, many people have found these tips to make an easy ten pound difference as they get started on a new program. You might thing that these suggestions are really hi-tech or mysterious, but in reality, they are basic principles that I've seen successful over and over again. Here they are.
1. Avoid "white" food. This includes white breads, pastas, many cereal products, and even cracker-type snacks. Think about some other white things too like flour, potato products, rice, and even processed milk and cheese products. Some white foods that are OK for you to eat are cauliflowers, fish, and chicken.
2. Ditch the sodas and other drinks that have calories, sugar, or even artificial sweeteners. I don't want you to drink much coffee either. Creamer? No. It's white, isn't it? I want you to take in at least half the weight of your body in ounces of water. This means that if you weigh 250 pounds, you should be consuming 125 ounces of water every day. This will be essential for getting the fat loss process in gear.
3. These three rules are pretty easy to follow, aren't they? Sure, you'll have to adjust your habits a little bit, but it really won't be very hard once you get started. If you consistently adhere to these hints, you will be surprised at the progress you make in just a couple weeks.
Even though most people are aware of how significant exercise is to weight reduction, many have trouble making themselves do it. There are others who never can seem to find the time. Reality is that developing an exercise routine can be difficult when you are starting out. The key is developing a lifestyle that is accommodating to an exercise routine. One thing is for sure: you need to get involved with an exercise plan that will keep your attention. In other words, I want you to be involved in exercises that you enjoy. This will make it natural to get into the daily routine since you want to do it. You can even stay home and exercise. For many people this is key because the time and effort it takes to go to a gym often precludes participation in an exercise program. I use a spare bedroom, but I don't have fancy equipment as you might expect. I don't need it and neither do you. What you do need is a balance ball and weights that can be adjusted. A mat helps as well as a stationary bicycle. That's it. You don't need a lot to get a fat loss program going. By having a way to exercise at home, you will find that it is easy to work out when you don't have to go across town. The truth is that many people don't exercise because they don't like where they exercise. What I want you to think about is what might make your exercise time more fun. Whatever you do, you will find that building it on the foundation of activities you enjoy is the key to developing a lifetime of fitness. You can begin your fitness program together with a good diet. You can find tips for both in the Fat Loss Factor.
A case of constipation usually means that you've had one or fewer bowel-movements in a typical day. This might happen because you've just changed your diet from bad food to good food. Your body has to adjust to the different food, so you have to give your body time to get used to it. Another common cause for constipation is dehydration. If you don't take in the proper amount of water every day, you will have trouble with your colon being unable to push waste out. What is so bad about being constipated is all that awful stuff that your body naturally gets rid of stays in side you. This causes discomfort, fatigue, and even weight retention. This condition is like a buildup of poison inside of you: it can cause problems if you let it go too long. So what can you do when you're constipated to correct the situation? I have some natural and healthy suggestions for this. 1 Drink more water. You should be taking in about half your body's weight in fluid ounces of water. This means that if you weigh 230 lbs, you should be drinking 115 ounces of water daily. 2 Use flaxseed as an additive to your meals. You can mix a tablespoon of it into your food to give you more fiber ( to help get you moving) and Omega 3s as well. 3 Raw food is important. This means you should eat one piece of fresh fruit or raw veggies. Your system will benefit from the natural ingredients in raw foods that are usually lost when they are cooked. 3 Begin your day with a tablespoon of lemon juice. Mix it in water and add some Cayenne. This mixture will stimulate your system and help clear out your colon.
