It could be challenging losing and keeping weight off.
Here is what we recommend for weight reduction and management:
Work on your nutrition.
The effort spent in the gym should be reciprocated in the kitchen.
If you were to burn an additional 500 calories throughout the week from exercising, in addition to eating 500 calories less through a dietary improvement, then your overall progress has greater long-term effects.
Progress would be less dependent upon great workouts, and more on healthy lifestyle changes.
Don’t ignore the little things.
If you were to add up all the condiments you put on your food throughout the week you may be surprised at how many additional calories you’ve consumed.
A single packet of ketchup can have 25 calories or more.
Considering you may use 4 packets of ketchup on a single meal consisting of a burger and fries, equating to 100 calories, it’s evident that the little things add up quickly.
Exercise is considered part of most weight-loss plans, but only as a means to an end.
In fact, the National Institutes of Health’s information page on healthy weight focuses on dieting and weight loss and includes exercise mostly as a means to lose and maintain weight.
However, studies have shown that exercise not only improves organ function but actually improves the metabolism in fat cells, making even the fat cells healthier.
Also, a patient’s fitness and general health improves medical outcomes regardless of weight, their research shows.
For far too long the conventional view has been to look at exercise as a way to burn calories and not think about all of the other massive benefits of what happens when you exercise.
The fact is most people who try to lose weight and lose it, gain it back.
That’s not a personality issue. There are strong biological reasons why that happens.
Increase your resistance training.
While using cardio machines will help your overall heart health, including resistance training can be beneficial when weight loss is the primary goal.
Since muscle requires more energy from your body, even when at rest, resistance training is a key factor in weight loss. Muscular tissue consumes more nutrients and oxygen than fat and this caloric expenditure can lead to weight loss.
By Increasing overall muscle mass, your body will naturally output more calories throughout the day for the muscle to exist.
When selecting exercises to assist with weight management, consider those with compound and functional movements. Exercises such as deadlifts and overhead presses are viable options.
Be consistent and structured.
Your ambition will likely be highest during the initial phases of your weight loss/management journey.
I encourage you to remain consistent and committed in order to see and maintain results.
One way to maintain consistency is to apply structure to the workout routines.
