Probably one of the most sought-after things that people constantly look for is to lose
weight, and not gradually but as quick as possible. The truth is, there is no shortcut to lose weight, it is a gradual process and requires perseverance up to the maximum.
Consistency is needed if one aims to lose weight, just like any other process. Today, we will see how we can lose as much weight as possible in a month.
The Secret to Losing Weight
As stated earlier, there is no shortcut when it comes to losing weight, the only trick is to record and note down the ‘mistakes’ we are making. These mistakes are basically our daily routine, most of us have a sedimentary lifestyle where we do not exercise much as we need to.
The other reason is that of overeating and as a result, we find it hard to shed these extra pounds due to that. Hence, the first thing to do is to cut back on all the bad foods that we eat and supplementing them with good, whole foods.
Not only are they healthy but make you feel good and fibre rich foods don’t make you
hungry for a while promoting wellness at the same time.
The next trick is to start basic exercise, this is a must as our bodies were designed to move and be active and not binge like how we do things today.
Since exercising can be pretty hard for a newbie, basic exercise such as walking, jogging can help. This type of exercise is called cardiovascular exercise which is what makes our body move.
Along with cardiovascular training, strength training is required as this increases the
metabolism and speeds up the fat burning process. The ugly truth is that when we just do cardiovascular exercise, we end up losing muscle and weight but not fat (not as much) and this is why strength training helps.
Not only does it make our muscles tone up and aid in the process of losing fat, it also
avoids us from getting too skinny by improving lean mass.
Counting the calories, we eat also helps as the trick is to eat fewer calories than what we generally consume. Although this is not physically possible, we need to make sure that this works right as, in the end, this is a measurement that aids in weight loss.
Following the above-mentioned process results in good weight loss and one can easily shed 3-4 kgs easily, which is also the recommended rate.
Insights on Weight Loss
It is to be noted that one would lose weight quite quickly during the initial stages and that is because of water weight. It can be observed that it gets hard to lose weight and burn fat after two months or so because the water content is lost. Hence, perseverance is a must when it comes to weight loss as this is not something that can be done in a fortnight and it is wise to know that spot reduction is a myth!
