8 Ways to Eat and Exercise For Quick Weight Loss
There are times in our life when we need to lose weight quickly, either for weddings, reunions, special events, or to boost motivation. Ramping up your workouts is a great way to boost performance and achieve body goals; however, it’s common to increase your fitness routine only to gain weight.
It might take some work but here are some tips to get fast weight-loss results while ramping up your workouts.
Know Your Numbers
Body composition numbers. Weight is only part of the picture when it comes to fitness. Getting a body fat assessment and taking measurements of various body parts can provide more accurate tracking of whether your workout is working for you.
Skip The Snack
If losing weight is your goal, a calorie deficit needs to be created, and it won’t happen if you’re reaching for snacks with the ‘I earned this’ mentality.
Trade Carbs For Protein
Carbs store extra water which leads to a puffy appearance. Cutting back on the carbs can help you achieve a short-term leaner look due to water loss. Protein helps keep you feeling full and increase muscle gains.
Ditch The Salad
Yes. Raw vegetables are good for your health, but can cause bloating that gives the appearance of not having a flat stomach.
Add foods To Your thoughts
Ramping up your workout routine can require you to put calories into your workout to keep your body energized. Restructure your daily diet to eat before a workout and reducing a snack later on.
Weights First, Cardio Second
When mixing workout disciplines, go for weights first. This helps your warm-up to handle cardio better, allowing you to go harder.
Invest In A Fitness Tracker
Research fitness trackers that, at a minimum, count steps, heart rate and sleep. Checking in with your body’s workload is the only way to get an accurate look at how much energy you used for a given activity.
Make It A Double
When you work out, your metabolism is boosted through post-exercise oxygen consumption and the hunger hormone ghrelin is reduced. Doing a morning session and evening session can make this burn last all day long.
