3 key points in weight loss
There are various way to lose weight. Unfortunately, many sources recommend only diets which will leave you unsatisfied and hungry and hunger can make you give up your weight loss plan. But we have another opportunity for you. Here we’ve compiled three key points in
the process of losing weight which can help you get rid of the extra fat.
Cut down the sugars and starches
This is the most important step – cut back the carbohydrates aka sugars and starches. This will not only lead to less calories consumed but will also level down your hunger which will lead to further reduction of the calorie intake. And, even more, your body will no longer burn
the carbohydrates for energy but will instead start using up the stored fat for fuel (aka energy).
Also, cutting carbs will lead to lower insulin levels which means the kidneys will shed the excess sodium and water out of the body. Therefore, you’ll be less bloated and your body won’t have this extra water weight.
Consume protein, vegetables and… fat
Every meal should consist of a protein source, low in carbs vegetables and a source of fat.
This will lead to consuming the recommended amount of carbs per day – 20-50 grams.
Sources of protein are meat (pork, chicken, lamb, beef, etc.), eggs (mostly yolk), fish and seafood (shrimp, salmon, etc.).
You need to consume plenty of protein which can make your metabolism burn further 80-1000 calories every day.
Furthermore, high in protein diets will reduce the cravings and the obsession with food. It’ll also make you feel satiety for longer.
Low-carb veggies are broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, lettuce, cucumber and others. They contain lots of vitamins, minerals and fibers necessary for your body.
Sources of fat can be butter, coconut oil, avocado oil and olive oil.
Consume 2-3 meals a day and if you get hungry during the afternoon, make the meals 4.
Don’t let the consumption of fat scare you. If you go both low-fat and low-carb, the chances that you’re going to fail are increasing.
Weight-lifting sessions 3 times a week
It’s not a necessity in order to lose weight on a low-carb diet but it can help you achieve your goals. It’s best to train in the gym about 3-4 times every week and don’t forget the warm-up prior the lifting session. We recommend that new to the gym people ask experiences trainers for advice.
Weightlifting burns lots of calories and doesn’t allow your metabolism to slow down. This will also lead to gaining muscle mass which is denser than fat and will make you look slimmer.
If you cannot do weightlifting, go for some cardio exercises. This includes walking, running, jogging, swimming or cycling. Don’t forget the warm-up. Cardio has another benefit – it will not only help you lose weight but will also keep your cardiovascular system up and running
in its best possible state, which results in improved health.
