Baby Steps is something I like to tell my clients!
Sometimes we go gun hoe into that 100% change of life style and get burned out in 2 seconds!!!
If this is just about losing weight and not about competing it may better to change things slowly!
So which changes are the most important?
All diet really means is way of eating 🙂
Don’t go to low in your caloric needs right away!
Once you hit a platoo (and you will…) you need to be able to lower your caloric needs!
Never go below 1200 calories because this will simply stop your metabolism .
Next increase your cardiovascular activity!
If you are doing 3 days of 30-40 min cardio per day, add one more day!
According to the American Fitness association you maintain your weight by 3 days of cardiovascular activity per week, but to lose weight you need to do 4 or more days of cardio….
Conditioned people maybe more, unless they are now starting to control their diet!
Next will be challenge yourself!!!
Increase that muscle to burn more calories.
Your muscle is your calorie burning machine!!!
Don’t worry ladies 🙂
You will not turn into a man without adding testosteron injections!!!
You can only gain about 8 pounds of muscle per year with perfect diet and supplementation!
That’s a lot, even destriputed over the whole body….
But once you diet down you will lose some of this!
Make sure you added enough, so there can be some left.
It takes about 4-6 weeks to get that focus to be on the diet 100%….
There will be some mistakes as we’ve seen in the past >>>>
People don’t want to Pre cook meals and end up eating processed turkey or chicken….
Using frozen foods instead of fresh (high sodium)!
Not drinking enough water, or adding flavors which dehydrates instead of hydrates the body!!!
Over usage of sugar free syrup, which causes bloating and constipation!!!
Using dairy free fat free frozen yogurt, which is made from corn and turns to sugar anyway ( causes bloating and constipation)!
Energy drinks, which are poisen and slowing down your thyroid function just like soda does!
Eventually you will get this 🙂
Once you are very close to that perfect eating, your energy will increase and you will feel like a million bucks!!!
So why do we get back to our old habits?
We are addicted to sugar, caffeine, sodium, and tons of other chemicals…
However once you discovered how amazing you feel and how good you look, you will always come back to clean eating and training hard!
It’s all worth it 🙂
