Hey guys! Who's enjoying summer? It's time to finally show off what we have been working for since last summer. Oh wait... not quite there yet? It's okay, we enjoyed ourselves too. I mean, how couldn't you? With all the holidays throughout the year we don't blame you! (don't forget about Thanksgiving , the biggest cheat meal of the year, followed by the biggest leftover feast of the year!)
Anyways, Summer is here & we all want to look good. That means that we really need to be a little conscious about our figure so that we don't let those delicious summer mimosas catch up to us. So today we're going to share a few quick tips to getting lean & staying at your desired weight!
1. High fiber foods are very important! Not only do they aid in weight loss because your body has to work harder to digest them, they keep you full longer.
Staying full longer is an obvious plus, we all have those days where we have two lunches, or too much for dinner. Foods high in fiber range from beans all the way to whole wheat bread.
It's important to avoid foods like white bread, cake, and similar foods. This is because not only do they not keep you full longer, but they leave you craving more food and no one wants to make themselves hungrier.... right?
2. Avoid SNACKING, especially late night! Okay, okay, I know. It's 11 PM, you're in the kitchen, and you're about to open the fridge. Stop right there! Snacking causes weight gain & problems alike.
Why? Because food is energy. Who needs energy before they go to sleep? No one! It's really that simple, food contains calories, calories are energy, and guess what happens to all that energy when it's not used up? You guessed it! It becomes fat, which you have to work hard to burn!
3. The final tip i'm going to give today is very important! All of us love doing cardio I assume, and if you're not doing cardio you've either reached your weight loss goal or you're working on building muscle.
That's all great, BUT, you should always keep cardio in your workout regimen, because it keeps your heart healthy! Don't forget that weight loss is not the only goal here, we are all working on building, better, healthier bodies together!
The first 20 minutes of any cardio workout is actually just your body using up any energy you've gotten from your meals. That's why it's always a good idea to workout in the morning when you're just burning fat!
After 20 minutes on cardio, (20 minutes is the average amount but don't forget everyone is different!) you should begin to burn calories that are stored in fat cells around your body. There is no such thing as targeting specific areas for fat loss. Your body burns fat from all areas when you workout!
