Many people struggle everyday to lose fat, and they get incredibly frustrated when they don't see results. If Fat Loss is your goal, there are some things that you MUST do in order to reach your ultimate goal. The following 3 strategies will get you started on your way to a better you!
1. Eat Breakfast
Eating Breakfast FIRST thing in the morning gets your metabolism started. If you skip breakfast, it just forces your body to break down vital muscle tissues and suppresses your metabolism. When you eat breakfast, it sends a signal to your body that it can wake up and start burning fat!
2. Lift Weights
I know, I know, a lot of you are saying that lifting weights will make you "big and bulky." Well I have news for you, it won't! Lifting weights helps add lean muscle mass to your frame. What most people thing of as "big and bulky," is just someone that has too much fat. Muscle tissue increases your metabolism. For about every 5 poundss of muscle you gain, you increase your metabolism by about 250 calories / day. That's like doing 30 minutes on the elliptical without even getting off your couch!
3. Cut back on sugar and alcohol!
Both sugar and alcohol cause your body to release lots of insulin. Insulin is you body's storage of hormone. When insulin levels are really high, it causees your body to STOP burning fat and start STORING it! That's BAD NEWS if you're goal is to lose fat!!! By simply cutting bacck or avcoiding sugar and alcohol, you can keep this from happening altogether!
That's it! These 3 strategies will get you on your way toward a new you!! It may seem a little simplistic at this point, but give these a try and I'll guarantee you'll see a difference in your results!
