Fat loss is not always easy to achieve, as it requires dedication and physical commitment from you. You might feel frustrated at times and feel like you want to quit, but know that if you do it right, the results will be well worth it.
The most important thing is to never give up on your goals and instead of feeling discouraged, take a look at these tips that might just help you to reach your goals.
Choose the Right Meal Frequency
If you want to consume six small meals every few hours, do it. But if you prefer to rather go with a few larger meals throughout the day, that’s fine too. Your goal is fat loss and your total caloric intake is much more important than the time you consume your calories.
There are more to your fat loss success than just the timing of your meals. At the end of the day you should find a lifestyle that works for you.
Give it your all in the gym. During your 45-minute or 60-minute session, give it your all and really make the time count.
Use every minute to your disposal and make sure that you follow a reliable program so that you don’t just fall from one machine to the other.
Rather give it 100 percent with each set and never be afraid to try out new techniques either. You should also time your rest periods and remember to never rest for more than 60 seconds at a time.
You can take something from every workout you complete, whatever you choose to train. Not everyone loves the same training routine, but as an individual you can make the most out of every session.
Spend a few minutes at the end of each training session with dumbbell / barbell complexes or even complete a circuit or do core exercises that will boost your heart rate and burn more calories.
Don’t Go Too Far
We all know someone who joins the gym in January and then arrives seven days a week to get the best possible “results”. He or she is also likely the person who says carbs are bad and that you should not consume any fat at all. They focus heavily on cardio too. You should not be this person!
These individuals will also start “fresh” every week, after having too many cheat days. They simply are not dedicated enough and don’t have a clue of what to actually do to get results.
Focus on what matters and stick to the basics that work for you. It’s all about balance and reaching your goals.
Even if you do something well 80 percent of the time, you will still get results.
Remember that you won’t lose all your fat in one week, as it certainly took longer than that to build up.
People get frustrated all too much and simply give up because they don’t see the results they want in the first week. Be patient. It takes time to lose fat – and keep it off for good.
If you feel you have fallen into a plateau, just change something up. Challenge your body in a new way by either training longer, using heavier weights or even incorporating HIIT or steady cardio.
Your body adapts to change and you should always change it up every few weeks. With patience you’ll reach your goals easier than you ever thought possible.
