Here are some tips on losing weight:
1. EAT FREQUENTLY!
You've probably heard me say this countless times if you Train with me but it just can't be stressed enough. Eating 5-6 meals containing Protien, Carb, and healthy fat each day is KEY, regardless of your training goals. Smaller meals will allow you to increase your fat-burning ability while at the same time providing your body with nutrients required to build muscle.
2. TRAIN WITH WEIGHTS!
Lifting weights is an essential part of developing a lean physique. Not only will weight training boost you metabolic rate for extended periods of time,
it will help you build muscle (which will allow you to burn more calories just sitting around!). I make sure all my clients lift weights in every workout.
3. DRINK LOTS OF WATER!
Water is essential to life and a healthy body. Dehydration will wreak havoc on you and your fitness goals. If you are dehydrated your body cannot function at its optimal level. For example, your muscles will lose strength, you won't burn fat as quickly, and you'll feel tired and fatigued.
4. PLAN YOUR MEALS THE NIGHT BEFORE!
(This one has made all the difference in my personal fitness journey.)
You have enough going on during the day that you don't need to be worrying about where your next meal will come from and how you can make it fit perfectly into your plan. Eliminate the added stress, plan the night before, and just follow your roadmap during the day. I have excellent examples if you follow my instagram I'm constantly uploading pictures of my weekly meals.
