I am studying Health Science in college and I have studied weight loss and gain for the past few years so here are a few tips for those that would like to lose weight.
First of all everything in moderation. When you get a craving for something EAT IT because if you repress your cravings you will end up giving in and eating more than you should of whatever it is you want to eat. The thing is you need to realize how much you are eating and only eat only a little bit of it.
The next thing is that you have to get into an exercise routine and diversity is key. You can’t always do the same exercises otherwise you will get bored and stop exercising. A great workout for losing weight is a bodyweight exercise routine. It builds strength and endurance in muscles instead of adding bulk. Keep reps from 12 to 15. Also, please don’t so static stretching. It’s engrained in people’s heads that static stretching is the correct stretching technique but it’s wrong. You will increase chance of injury if you use static stretched. Instead use dynamic stretches which ease muscles to relax after a workout.
Drink lots of water and slowlys ease out of carbonated beverages. For me I only have coke’s when I go out to eat and that’s my limit. If I go out to eat a little more than usual I always bring a bottle of water or ask for water at the restaurant.
Try to add some fruits to your diet instead of candy or snacks.
Remember to have fun with this, don’t make it a job. If you stop losing for a bit don’t worry just keep perservering.
