On and almost daily basis, there’s ‘news’ in magazines, newspapers, on TV and in fact everywhere of some new breakthrough weight loss secret.
Sometimes it’s a new piece of equipment that in only minutes a day with next to no effort will transform your body just like photo shop. The promotion of these gadgets is quite amazing-a shame the effects of using them aren’t as amazing as the infomercials will lead you to believe.
Others are wondrous diet pills or magical shakes or bars. By just popping one of these daily or simply replacing one meal or snack, we are supposed to believe that the body of your dreams will suddenly appear-again more magic.
The truth is, most people fail to reach their weight loss goals, not because they haven’t found the magical special ingredient or gadget, but simply because they don’t put in the effort required to do so.
Either you’ve given up trying. After all, your past efforts and statistics show that losing weight is next to impossible. Or you’ve set your goals and decided what you want, but you haven’t followed through with an effective plan to get you there.
You an achieve fat loss if you really want to. It’s not that complicated. Dozens of people in only 2 short years since I started FitterFaser have proven that with an effective training program and good, healthy nutrition, you can lose fat for good and you can lose it quite quickly too, if you put in the effort.
I’ve really enjoyed helping all these people on the path to better fitness, fantastic health and leaner bodies. And I plan to do a lot more of it in 2011. It’s time for you guys to set some new goals in relation to how you are going to make improvements to your lifestyle that will results in bodies that not only look better, but feel better too.
Everyone who attends FitterFaster or reads this blog regularly, knows that good nutrition is key to seeing improvements in your body composition. By replacing less nutritious foods like grains based items (think breads, crackers, biscuits, pastries, pastas etc) and processed foods with fruits, vegetables, lean meats like chicken, beef, lamb, fish, eggs, nuts and seeds you have taken the first major step towards seeing results.
The first habit to take up is to get rid of these processed foods. You won’t believe the changes you will see and how quickly you will see them if you simply stop eating these foods every week.
The second most important thing is to:
Always make sure you include a protein source with every meal and snack. Cottage cheese, eggs (soft or hard boiled, fried, poached, scrambled) meats, fish etc are all good sources of protein. Nuts and yoghurt are also good sources. Together with the protein, you should have fruit, salad or vegetables as well. To take this one step further, in the evening, eat protein on its own or with a source of Omega 3’s. Definitely restrict starchy carbs at this time.
Carbs produce a larger insulin response, and while the hormone insulin is released, HGH is reduced and fat storage is increased. Just what you don’t want on a fat loss program. You don’t want it happening at any time of day, but especially at night time when you are inactive. So always include protein with every meal or snack and eat only protein before bed.
