Here are the 7 fat loss secrets:
Visualize Your Goals.
Begin by creating your new physique in your mind first. It’s impossible to achieve a healthy and fit body when you have no idea what that means to you. Start by imagining exactly what you want your body to look like. Be very specific – what will you look like, what will others say to you, how will you feel. While this may seem silly at first, it is a critical component to your success. In fact, the mind cannot distinguish between an actual event and something that you imagined. After you have a clear picture in your mind take a moment and write your vision down. You will be 90% more likely to succeed if you write your goals down on paper.
Enlist the help of a support team or fitness coach.
One of the key qualities of all success achievers is that they enlist the help of people who have already achieved what they themselves seek to accomplish. To achieve significant, long-term results, the guidance of a fitness expert will put you on the path to success.
Without support and regular accountability it’s too easy to get distracted and forget about your goals. Use accountability, to stay on track with your goals to prevent frustration and weight loss plateaus.
Consume 5 – 6 small meals per day.
The single most vital factor in increasing your metabolism (the speed at which your body burns through calories) is to increase the frequency of your meals. I know you’ve been told that you must cut down on your calories and exercise more, but that will not work.
Eating less and working out more will doing nothing but decrease your metabolic rate.
However, if you eat the right foods in the right amounts it’ll remain high while still allowing you to burn fat. By consuming adequate amounts of proteins, starchy carbohydrate and fibrous carbohydrates you can boost your metabolism 100-200 calories per day.
Increase your lean muscle.
Metabolism is largely related to the amount of lean muscle you have on your physique. An increase in 5 pounds of lean muscle will stoke your resting metabolic rate (RMR) – the number of calories you burn just to sustain life – by 100 calories every day. The only way to increase your lean muscle is to perform resistance training. Not only will you boost your RMR by burning more calories all day and night, but you’ll increase metabolism by the exercise itself and the recovery process.
Perform Interval Training.
Interval training simply refers to a series of intense activity separated with short rest periods (active recovery). By using interval training you are able to exercise at a higher intensity without burning yourself out in minutes since you alternate between high intensity and low-intensity efforts. Intervals not only improve your cardiovascular fitness but burn way more calories and fat than slow, long-duration aerobics. In fact, you’ll burn about 300-400 calories during your workout and another 100 -200 calories per day even when you are sitting on our butt. This is known as “the after-burn” and it’s the most important factor to burning fat.
Consume a post-workout shake.
After your resistance training or interval training, it’s critical to put your body into a recovery state and maximize metabolism. By drinking a shake of fast acting protein and carbohydrates you’ll ensure that you start to rebuild muscle tissue immediately and prevent any unwanted muscle soreness.
Increase your water intake.
Water is a vital component of life. It’s impossible to survive without clean water every day. If you don’t consume enough water your body will age quicker, appear fatter, and be more susceptible to colds, flues, increased soreness and much more. As a general rule of thumb, you should take your body weight and divide it by two to get the ounces of water your body needs daily.
Remember these 7 fat loss secrets only work if you follow them consistently. The complete formula will help you achieve maximum success from your fitness program. Start by incorporating one secret and once you’ve mastered it move on to the next until you’ve mastered them all.
