Don’t you wish there were a method to simply melt your fat away? Well there is, but it’s a little more complicated than just sitting in a sauna to melt it. It involves a program of regular exercise and a healthy diet. A healthy diet does more than just provide more nutrients, it also lower caloric intake, even though you may be eating more than you did previously. That’s because you’re making smarter food choices. Regular exercise helps burn extra calories, but does even more than that to help you lose weight and keep it from returning.
Regular exercise builds muscle tissue.
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to eat all the time and never gain weight? Some people say they just have a good metabolism. You don’t have to envy them, but can build your own calorie burning furnace by exercising on a regular basis. You see, exercise builds muscle tissue and burns fat tissue. Muscle tissue requires more calories than fat tissue does. So, the more muscle tissue you have the more calories you burn.
Eating healthier isn’t dieting. DIETS DON’T WORK!
If you’ve ever been on a diet, you probably remember just how deprived you felt. It was probably restrictive and may even have been a fad diet that consisted of some “miracle” food. Most people on a diet are always hungry, too. The worse part of dieting is that it ends. At that point, you go back to eating the way you did before and that’s what put the weight on in the first place. Sometimes extremely low calorie diets even slow your metabolism, so when it ends, you not only regain the weight you lost, you gain even more. Eating healthier provides a wide selection of food. However, you’ll learn to make substitutions that really won’t affect the flavor, such as brown rice for white rice. It’s all the small changes you make that add up to big calorie savings.
Exercise regularly to burn off the unhealthy hormones created by stress.
Early man benefited greatly from the changes created by stress. In those days, attack from a wild animal was a stress and the hormones prepared their body to fight or for flight. Today, it’s not that simple. We don’t run or fight when the boss is angry, traffic slows or babies cry, even though it might seem like a relief to do so. The hormones never are burned and cause many negative changes. In fact, cortisol, one of the hormones from stress, is associated with the accumulation of abdominal fat. Exercise burns off those hormones and puts you back to normal. That can also help prevent stress eating.
You’ll develop more energy the fitter you become. The more energy you have, the more you’ll do and the more calories you’ll burn. It’s a wonderful cycle.
You’ll sleep better at night. Not only does that give you more energy and help prevent serious illnesses, it also helps you steer clear of sugary treats because you won’t need them to keep you awake.
You’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll lose weight when you workout with a personal trainer. That’s because trainers create a program that burns the most calories the quickest.
You’ll look slimmer, even if you don’t shed a pound. That’s because muscle tissue weighs more than fat tissue does, so one pound of muscle takes up less space than one pound of fat. You’ll be losing inches besides losing pounds.
