Speed Up Your Results
Being able to lose weight in one week is absolutely possible. If your desire is to lose weight and tone up then you can achieve it. So many times I have seen people complain about their weight and declare to everyone that would listen their desire to trim down and lose weight. They tell you about how unhappy they are because of their size and how their fitness has decreased. I honestly use to feel sorry for these people as you could see they were struggling. But I discovered the ones that always talk about it never really take any action. The complainers were still drinking high sugar drinks, eating fast food and sitting on the couch watching television. They took no steps to achieve their weight loss goals yet they still complained. It appeared as if they wanted someone else to do it for them.
Well, I hate to bust their bubble but it doesn’t work like that. If you want to achieve weight loss or anything else in life for that matter, it takes work and effort. If you don’t want to put in the effort then you will not get what you want. It is that simple. Losing weight to reclaim your health is not rocket science. It entails 3 little steps. Eat well and eat often. When I use the word well I do not mean an enormous amount. Eat small meals frequently (5 to 6 times a day).
Choose to put healthy food into your body. If you eat foods high in fat you will be fat. If you choose to eat natural foods such as lean protein and fruit and vegetables you will lose weight. Move. Get your body moving. Go to the gym, take a walk or join a dance class. Without some type of physical activity you will not achieve your dreams. Hold yourself accountable. The only person that is responsible for your body is you. Take responsibility for it, treat it well and it will improve. Make this the time to take action. Good food + activity = a healthier, trimmer you.
Best Exercises For Me For Abs
The best exercises for you for abs are ones that will both burn fat and build muscle. This is because most of us have a few extra pounds around the midsection that will prevent the ab muscles from being seen even after they have been built up. You see, you can’t spot reduce fat around the belly so exercises like sit ups only serve to build the abdominal muscles. However, they just don’t burn enough calories to make a difference when it comes to losing weight. For losing weight most people resort to exercises like running or doing the Stairmaster to burn fat. This is alright, however to burn a single pound of fat you must expend 3,500 calories and even if you spend an hour on the Stairmaster you will only lose about 500. These are the exercises that most people do to work and show their abs and burn fat. However, you still can’t see them on most people.
The trick is to turn your body into a fat burning furnace by raising the metabolism while doing exercises that work your core. These would be exercises like the clean and jerk, the standing military press, dumb bell swings, renegade rows, dead lifts and others. Even though these exercises may not seem like they are working your abs, they have a number of benefits above other ab exercises, When you build muscle, you burn fat.
Fat weighs more than muscle and is heavier for the body to carry which effectively increases your body’s fat burning ability. Because these exercises work multiple muscle groups they cause you to exert so much force that you actually go into a state of metabolic shock and burn more calories days after the workout. And, finally, they build muscle in your abs because your abs serve to stabilize your body during these exercises. Don’t believe me? Try some renegade rows and you will.
