There are many fitness programs out there that promise to help you lose weight and the truth is that some of them actually do make a good effort towards helping you succeed. However the secret that very few of these trainers will tell you, because, in fact, very few of them know it, is that all the programs in the world will be of very little use if you don’t change the way you live your life outside of the gym. And, once you make these changes, you will not actually need any other program to lose weight. So here are the 7 most effective secrets to lose your extra weight faster.
1. Prepare you own meals
It is a pity that we now have lost the art of preparing our own meals but the truth is that anyone who has ever prepared a loving meal, and not took it on as a chore, must have discovered just how much nourishment you get just from cooking. And, even more importantly, by cooking your own meals you can get to choose the exact ingredients that offer you the best nutritious support.
2. Eat plenty of proteins
It is a strange preconception that eating meat will make you get fat when, in fact, it is the fat in most of the meats we eat that is fattening while the meat, the actual muscle is one of the best things that you can eat in order to lose weight. So make sure you get enough protein and, if you are a vegetarian, make soy products your best friends and make sure you eat a lot of eggs and beans too because they too have a lot of protein.
3. Do not starve yourself
Another common misconception about losing weight is that not eating enough may somehow help. But the sad truth of the matter is that by not eating you are not only making yourself feel ill and weak and thus losing the will power you need to keep on the right track, but you are setting your body in panic mode and it may start hoarding energy.
4. Share your desert
The thing about the appeal of a desert is that it is only tempting until you have taken the first spoonful and afterword, although delicious, that desert will only serve to help you get fatter. So the best thing you can do is to share you desert with someone.
5. The main reason for your weight: soda
Have you ever tried to make your own juice at home, even if we are just talking about a glass of lemonade, you must have noticed just how much sugar you need to put in to get it to taste sweet and even then it does not taste as sweet as a glass of Cola or 7Up. So why would you continue to drink any kind of soda when they are obviously force feeding you pounds of sugar by the glass.
6. Exercise a little but often
When doing exercises the crucial thing is to exercise often and not just in what gulp. It is somewhat similar to keeping the perfect diet because, there too, you have to eat little but often. And the same principle applies to exercise because the purpose is to keep your body active, to keep your energy levels up and, thus, you will be able to naturally lose weight.
7. Focus on what you are eating
We are so used with the image of eating while watching TV that we keep on doing it although there are more and more studies working us that the old Indian mystics were right when, in their medical treaties, they warned that we should focus on the food, as we are eating it, almost like we were meditating. In more recent studies we have found that people who are actually careful about what they eat tend to eat less and enjoy their meals more.
