If there’s one aspect of beauty that is full of myths – it’s definitely weight-loss. From contradictory advice to fad-diets to setting the wrong expectations, it is important to get the right idea about how to get off on the right foot to achieving your body goals.
So today, let’s set the record straight on what you have to do to start looking better and shed that weight.
Firstly, for you to achieve any form of weight loss – you need to get into what is referred to as a caloric deficit. In this case, it is a matter of simple mathematics where you need to burn MORE calories than what you are putting into your body. To truly get a handle on your caloric count, you must be aware of how many calories you are eating, and though it might be tedious at first – getting a grasp and an understanding of your diet will go a long way to help you get to your goals. So TRACK THOSE CALORIES.
Now when it comes to losing weight, you will need to still exercise. And the exercise needs to be done right. Neither under-exercising nor over-exercising is going to cut it.
With under-exercising, where you would maybe just go into a caloric deficit without working out, you are going to end up losing muscle mass and experience a decrease in metabolic rate. While over-exercising and trying to force your body to burn more calories would increase your stress levels that could impair your production of adrenal hormones that regulate stress.
Lifting weights and doing cardio a few times a week is the recommended strategy for sustainable maintenance of metabolic rate during weight loss.
And finally, the number on your scale should not be your focus. Sure, it provides some measure of progress, but your weight is influenced by other things like fluid fluctuations, how much food remains in your system, and your workout results – as you gain muscle and lose fat, the numbers on your scale may not even look like they have changed. So, feel free to pay attention to your weight, but don’t freak out if the numbers don’t look like they’re going down.
Following a routine of exercise, a clean diet and a healthier lifestyle, it is almost a guarantee that you will see your energy levels boosted and significant improvements to your overall wellbeing.
And while these behaviours may help you lose weight, they may not be enough to help you tone specific areas of fat.
