Beware of the promises of fast and easy weight loss
To those who ask me for weight loss tips, always warn that for this there is no miracle. Fast weight loss is not good for health and there are no magic solutions, such as: "Use our device while you sleep and lose weight"; "Slim five pounds in a week with our tea" or "Eat as much as you like and lose weight." Do not believe and do not waste your time, your health and your money. Without proper diet re-education and a physical program you will not lose weight. The only formula to lose weight is: to spend more calories than you consume. There is no way to change it. In this reality, I give three tips to readers who, if followed and practiced, will make anyone burn calories.
Bodybuilding today is considered as important as cardiovascular exercises and flexibility exercises, in addition to
Contrary to popular belief, bodybuilding is a factor of great importance in the process of weight loss, because the more lean mass our body acquires, the greater it becomes. will be the number of calories burned, due to increased metabolism activity. Start your bodybuilding workout three times a week, increasing to a maximum of five. Start with three sets of ten reps for each exercise. Make a maximum of one minute rest between sets. Use a weight that allows you to complete the ten repetitions without losing the technique, but also offering resistance and the need for some effort.
"Before thinking about a diet, seek a health professional"
Aerobic exercises like walking, swimming and running are excellent for weight loss and also for our heart. Start a 45-minute walk plan three times a week, which can increase to five times a week.
Feeding is the most important factor in the weight loss process because "we are what we eat." Have a food habit that allows you to eat every two hours, so as well as increasing the feeling of satiety, you will also be activating metabolism even more.
Avoid fried foods, sweets and foods rich in sodium and salt, as they have large amount of calories, in addition to increasing the risk of diabetes, hypertension and other cardiovascular problems. In addition, eat fiber-rich foods and drink plenty of water.
Losing weight too fast is not good for your health, as the impact can be negative on metabolic expenditure, causing the famous accordion effect. Physical activity decreases anxiety and compulsion to eat.
Before thinking about a diet, seek a health professional, such as an endocrinologist, physical education teacher, or a nutritionist. Escape from miracle diets and maintain self-control, as the obsession with weight loss can become a disease.
Maintaining a routine of physical activity and training is not easy, because daily we have many surprises during the day that at some point can disrupt and reduce the time that had been planned to exercise. Among these surprises the most common are transit, the fact of staying longer at work, a rainy day, a car that broke, an alarm clock that did not ring and so on.
How difficult it is to talk about stretching! Even because it is more convenient to criticize what we hear or read than actually share the ideas, which comes not only from our own experience but also from what evidence-based research brings us about truths and myths. studies have been conducted over the years and, for the most part, they are of poor quality, which brings a major conflict to health professionals and physical trainers.
