When most people want to lose fat they make a few simple, yet powerful, mistakes that keep them from losing any weight possible. Well I’m here to reveal these fat loss mistakes that keep people unhappy and over weight. The most important thing to remember when you’re trying to lose fat is not that losing fat is hard, it isn’t if you put in the work. You must put in the work and your stomach will get smaller and smaller by the day.
First off, start working out in the gym at least three times per week. Three times per week is enough to increase your metabolism for up to 24-48 hours post workout. Since your body needs to recover from your recent workout you’ll keep burning calories over the course of the next two days. Now your workout should consist of full body workout that utilize big muscle groups and movements like lunges, deadlifts, rows and presses. So now remember that the reps you use dedicate everything that happens to your body. Use higher rep, around 10-15 reps and 3-4 sets. This is the best way to release muscle building and weight loss hormones in your body.
The next step is to focus on your nutrition. Most people want to lose fat but they never focus on the proper type of weight loss diet or nutrition. Now I hate the word diet since most people think that they need to stay on a diet or else they won’t lose any weight. That’s the wrong way to thinking. The right way of thinking is that to lose fat you have to eat a lower carbohydrate, high protein and moderate fat diet. The thing about protein is that it helps to build lean muscle, which is great for losing bodyfat, but it also raises your metabolism since it’s so expensive to your body to breakdown protein. So the higher our metabolism is the greater the chance of losing stomach fat.
Now carbohydrates aren’t the enemy, they can be if they are eaten in large quantities over a short period of time. If they are eaten postworkout then they won’t harm you since they’ll be used to increase your recovery from the intense training session that was just performed. But if you don’t work out then there’s no reason that you should be eating carbs. No workout then no carbs.
Lastly you want to focus on your sleep. Try to get 6-8 hours of sleep and you’ll be refreshed and ready to lose fat.
