Get Fit Global - Top Weight Loss & Fitness Tips
A compilation of our best weight loss tips provided by Experts and everyday fitness enthusiasts alike. Follow these to lose weight and get lean and fit.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #1 – Don’t Diet
Yes you heard right. Don’t Diet. When you deny yourself the foods you love and restrict your calories too much (which usually happens on “diets”) it’s only a matter of time before your mind rebels. Your body will go into starvation mode and preserve fat instead of releasing it. Eat sensibly by making better food choices and watch your portions.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #2 – Make Resistance Training A Priority
Apart from “dieting”, resistance training is the most important thing you can do to achieve and or maintain a fit physique. The added muscle will burn more calories and the workouts (done correctly) can, potentially boost the metabolism for up to 48 hours.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #3 – Eat Lean Quality Protein
Not only is protein absolutely necessary for building muscle, but it also helps curb the appetite.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #4 – Lift Heavier Weights
Lifting heavier weights puts greater demands on the body causing it to burn more calories during the workout and long after the workout is over. Also lifting heavier weights for lower reps is more effective for building muscle and weight loss.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #5 – No Cardio
What? You’re kidding right? No! No cardio, at least not the slow-mo cardio that you’ve been told is so effective. No, if you really want to rev up the fast loss and boost your metabolism – try High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Trust me. You’ll love it!
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #6 – Have Goals And Write Them Down
It’s said that a goal unwritten is just a wish. Set goals and write them down. Review them daily and take action.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #7 – Drink Water
Water is important when you’re trying to slim down. It helps to metabolize fat and eliminate toxins and stored fat in the body.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #8 – Increase Protein To 35% or More
The benefits to increasing protein intake are an increased thermic effect of feeding (i.e. you burn more calories by eating more protein), better blood sugar control, a decrease in body fat, and an increase in calorie-burning lean muscle.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tips #9 – Eat Foods That Burn Fat
True Fact: There are foods that you can eat that actually boost the metabolism due to their high thermogenic effect. So, you actually, burn fat while you chew.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #10 – Cheat!
No. That’s not a misprint. Cheat! If you’re restricting your calories in an effort to lose weight, It’s VERY important that you break that routine at least once a week – splurge – eat whatever you like and eat a lot. Why? For two reasons:
- Over-eating once a week will help the metabolism and keep it from slowing down
- Psychologically it helps you to be more disciplined during the week
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #11 – Make Tiny Changes
That’s right – small things add up. Park the car a little further away than you would normally. Whether this is when you are going to work or doing the shopping, just park that little bit further away and make yourself walk a little bit more. Tiny things like this can make a big difference over time.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #12 – Be Careful With Condiments
An otherwise healthy and low-calorie dish like salad can become a fat-filled nightmare if you load it up with “blue cheese” dressing. Mayonnaise, is loaded with fat and ketchup is sugar on steroids. So watch the condiments they can be a caloric mine field!
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #13 - Eat More
That’s right. Eating more frequently – say 5 meals- spaced out throughout the day can help curb the appetite, stabilize blood sugar levels and help you keep on track. It will also keep your body from going into starvation mode. The last thing you want to when you’re trying to shed fat.
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #14 – Rest
Rest you say? Sacrilege! No. You heard me right rest. I know you’re dedicated and committed and rest sometimes feels like a backward step, but trust me. When you exercise, particularly doing resistance training, you actually cause microscopic damage to the muscle. The muscle compensates by repairing itself – that’s why it gets bigger and/or stronger. It needs rest to do that. So do yourself and your body a favor and rest between workouts!
Weight Loss & Fitness Tip #15 – Pre-Portion
Did you know that research has shown that you will eat on average 300% MORE food and calories by eating straight out of the package, bag, or container, than you will if you simply pre-portioned out the appropriate serving size?
Simple strategy: DON’T eat from the container. Instead, set aside an appropriate serving size based on your calorie needs and goals and then put the container back in the fridge, freezer, or cupboard. Voila! Instant portion control without falling victim to mindless snacking!
Speaking of snacking, if you like snacking on carbs, but want to AVOID storing them as fat, then you’ll love this tip:
==> Do THIS before eating carbs (dramatically reduces fat storage)
