We’ve all got a little bit of fat that we could do without, haven’t we? Whether you’ve got one, two, or three rolls, there is a way for you to lose all of your unsightly fat and end up with the body of your dreams! I’m not joking. Anybody can do it; it just takes the right knowledge. Too many people try to eat less and exercise more, which doesn’t change body shape in the long term or make us healthy. Here’s the only way to do it properly:
Change Your Mindset
The very first step before you even set foot in a gym, is to change your mindset. Fat loss and fitness do not come easily or quickly. If you really want this, you have to realise this, and be willing to put in the time and effort. No matter how long it takes, whether it’s a few weeks or a few years, you will get that dream body. When results seem slow or nonexistent, don’t give up. The moment you realise that this should be a lifestyle change, the moment you’ll change your life for the better.
Put in Time and Effort
It’s going to take time and effort. No magic potion is going to transform you into Britney Spears in her heyday. You must make the time to plan your meals, shop for fresh foods, and work out. There’s no such thing as not having time!
Exercise and Eat Right
Now it’s time to exercise and eat right. The best bodies have a good amount of muscle definition and a low body fat percentage, so this requires strength training and cardio. Make sure you mix up your workouts so you don’t get bored, and you continue to shock your body. There are plenty of routines and nutrition guides on Bodybuilding.com for you to use for free, or you can check out the Venus Factor program!
Research Your Body Type
Different body types often have different exercise and eating needs. There are 3 kinds: ectos, mesos, and endos. You can look online at the characteristics to work out your type, and then research the things you should do and the things you should avoid.
Avoid Fads and Extremes
Fad diets, e.g., the diets where you only drink shakes for a few weeks before having one 600 calorie meal, aren’t good for you. Not only are they unhealthy, they’re unsustainable. The moment you start eating normally, even if you eat healthily, you’ll put inches back on and be disheartened. Do it properly and you’ll save time and money!
The key to success is consistency. If something you’re doing in training isn’t exciting you anymore, change it. If something you’re eating makes you feel bloated, stop eating it. Never, ever give up. Even if you have an off day, or miss a training session, get back on the wagon! I actually recommend you have one cheat meal per week, so you don’t mess up unexpectedly.
