Losing weight is sometimes difficult. But the difficulty is not with weight loss, it is due to unsuccessful planning. So what if you not able to plan a right program?
Sorry to say if you are not able to make a right program for you then you can’t achieve your goal.
It is not applicable only to you. Everyone who wants to get a lean body or lose weight or even build muscle they require proper planning.
Without proper planning, everyone lands into the problem of injury or nutrition deficiency which causes muscle loss or slow weight loss.
So we need to take care of diet and exercise while planning a weight loss program.
Sometime our planning is right, but we quickly quit it. We give up quickly due to our weak mental strength. So we need the motivation to follow it continuously even our body tries to give up. Our motivation level keeps us going even in very stressful condition.
By including these components, you can plan a successful weight loss program.
Motivation is most important part of any successful program. If we want to lose weight or, want to gain muscle we have to go through a tough training. These training may be painful due to injuries of minor pain.
Due to these minor pain or injury, we start changing our mentality towards our training. We start skipping a workout or start training lightly.
From here our successful planning turns in an unsuccessful. For weight loss, we need a proper training schedule so that we can burn excess fat stored in the body. If we start missing the workout, we might be not be able to burn enough fat.
So we need motivation, to go throughout any difficult situation. If you want to lose weight and gain personality like an athlete or your favorite actor pick up them as a motivation for your goal.
You should also keep in mind that you need to go long to gain such personality but the goal is not far away. Stay motivated and you will start loving the exercise and also enjoy the meal.
Before setting a motivation you should ask a few questions to see, are you ready for the challenge…
What I want?
Do I want to look great?
If you are able to stick to this question you can say “I Can”.
Whenever you feel depressed you should remember if they can achieve the goal then I Can also achieve it.
2. Set Realistic Goal
One of the major fault for any weight loss program is not setting a realistic goal. If you set a goal that is not realistic then you might not be able to complete it.
If you are not able to complete then your motivation level also starts lowering. It can also lead to severe injury.
Suppose you are inactive for longer time and you start your workout routine with 60 pushups, 60 squat, 4km jogging and other exercise you will not be able to complete it.
If you force to complete it, you might increase the risk of injury. So on the first day your goal should do warm-up, stretching, 30 pushups, 30 squats and 2km walk.
With an increase in fitness level, you should increase your exercise staying in the comfort zone. After 2-3 weeks you can train harder to stimulate the fat burning process.
So you should give your body time to adapt slowly and you will be able to prevent injury.
3. Proper Nutrition
For a quick weight loss, we need good nutrition. Without proper nutrition body can’t burn enough calorie. To burn calorie body need higher metabolism rate.
To improve the metabolism rate we need to eat right food on right time. By adopting a healthy eating habit, you can supercharge our weight loss goal.
Eat 5-6 Times a Day: 3 meal followed by 2 snacks is the best eating habit. You might need to eat every 2-3 hour. So you can carry a protein drink with you as a meal replacement.
Don’t Miss Breakfast: Breakfast is among the healthiest habit to start a day. After long night body starve for healthy nutrient rich food. By eating breakfast, you can stimulate the metabolism rate and also fasten the muscle recovery.
Drink Water: Water also helps to burn calorie. For higher metabolism we need enough fluid level in the body. So drink 3-4 liter of water regularly. Water quantity may differ on your age, gender, physical activity. The best way to drink water is to drink it before you feel thirsty.
Include nutrient rich food: Nutrient rich foods are required for higher metabolism and proper nourishment of the body. Without nutrient rich food it’s impossible to lose weight permanently. So include protein, carbs, dietary fat, vitamin and minerals. To get healthy fat you should eat nuts.
Avoid Fast Foods: Fast foods are dense in calorie known as empty calorie due to its no nutritional value. Avoid it as much as possible. If you crave for such foods you can try healthy dishes made at home.
These nutritional guides should be followed on a daily basis.
4. Mix up Training
We usually get bored by training same muscle or by training for longer time. So it’s time to add varieties to it. You should try strength training with High intensity workout for a change.
AfterBurn Effect can increase metabolism to burn calorie till 24 hours after the workout is done. So include it for the maximum benefit. Or if you felt bored in the gym you can try cycling for 30-40 minutes.
5. Maintain A Journal
Keep a journal of your diet and exercise. It will let to know what your goal is and how much effort you are taking to achieve. Enter every minute detail in it.
Weight loss is not hard but our mind becomes hurdle in the race. So take the right action on the right time to avoid those hurdles and win the race. So keep your motivation high and start achieving your goal.
