Four Weight Loss Tips



October 1st, 2010 10:19 am | by Ed |

Here's some basic weight loss tips that will get you started. Remember that it is important to be consistent with your nutrition and training if you're going to reach your goal. If you have difficulty you can get help from a personal trainer to get a program going tailored to you for optimum results.

You can also consider using a fat burning supplement to aid you in burning more fat during workouts. These supplements are usually a caffeine based product that helps speed up the metabolism and also contain amino acids (carnitine) which aid fat burning.

Tip 1 – Eliminate junk food.

This is self explanatory. MOST junk foods don’t have any nutritional value to speak of and are just converted to fat. This should really be number one on the list of things to do in order to get the fat burning off. A "cheat meal" once every week or so is okay, IF you keep it reasonable and don't go overboard.

Tip 2 – Reduce (preferably eliminate) alcohol intake.

Alcohol is a massive issue when it comes to weight loss. It’s not just the calories. The alcohol itself causes the body to store fat, reducing muscle mass as it dehydrates the muscles and sends the body into shock and causes the body to store fat.

You don’t necessarily have to give it up completely, at least reduce how much you're drinking to a bare minimum. Most days should be alcohol free days. When you do drink, don’t binge and make it a point to drink water between each alcohol drink.

Tip 3 – Increase cardio.

Get on the treadmill! It's best to do 20 minutes or so AFTER a weight training session because this is when you are in the best fat burning mode of the day. Any longer than 20 minutes or so will cause the body to start burning muscle tissue. Many experts recommend that you should only do "high intensity training" . . . 1 minute as fast as you can and then 1 minute of walking or rest.

Tip 4 – Reduce calories and carbs.

Reduce the amount of calories you are consuming by about 500 calories per day. Try to keep your carbs low (but not ultra low) and your protein up to keep muscle mass.
