An easy weight loss plan by Adrian Bryant of www.weightlossmadeeasy.net
Did you say there’s a way I can eat what I like and still lose weight? Is that even possible? Is there really a way I can lose weight without counting calories, carbs, fats, and without doing all other stuff that these diet experts tell me?
Yes there is. First of all, to put it bluntly, diets just don’t work at all for long-term weight loss. The main reason why diets don’t work is because they take you out of your comfort zone. Diets say things like “Okay put down cheeseburgers & fries and start eating rice cakes all day.”
Now all new popular Rice cake diet by “Dr. Whoever” may work just great while you’re on it but how long can you just eat just rice cakes. Basically, amount of weight you lose on a diet is equal to amount of time you’re willing to put up with diet’s silly restrictions.
The worst part about being on a diet is period right after you finish diet. Most people tend to gain all their weight back and more after a diet because they go back to eating even more of regular foods they liked in first place.
Being on a strict diet for any period of time only increases your cravings for food you loved in first place. It increasing your cravings to a point where you overeat so much that you gain weight.
To eat foods you like and still lose weight you simply have to increase your metabolism. Your metabolism is your body’s fireplace. This fireplace will burn all that ugly body fat off you if operate it correctly. Here are some (6) simple ways to increase your metabolism:
1. Eat More! That’s right. Instead of eating 1-3 big meals a day try eating 5-7 smaller meals a day. Remember your body’s metabolism is like a fireplace. Think about this way: when you eat 1-3 big meals you are basically putting a real big log on your fireplace and anytime you put too much on a fire it goes out.
When you feed yourself small meals spaced about 2-3 hours apart during day you are putting small pieces of wood on your fat-burning fireplace. These small meals keep your fireplace burning throughout day.
What happens when you don’t put any wood on a fireplace? It goes out right? The same thing happens when you eat less than 3 meals a day. Waiting 4-6 hours between meals is too long, to keep your fireplace going remember to eat SMALL meals every 2-3 hours.
Just eat enough in each meal to satisfy you and not so much that you fell full.
2. Build Muscle Did you know… * That just 1lb of muscle burns off a pound of fat every 70 days! * 3lbs of muscle will burn off a pond of fat every 23 days * 5lbs of muscle will burn a pound of fat every 2 weeks.
Building muscle doesn’t mean you have to start Bench pressing, squatting, or buying fancy equipment. To build muscle you can do simple bodyweight exercises like pushups, crunches, and bodyweight squats.
Walking up steep hills at a moderate to fast pace will build muscle in your legs. All it takes is 10-20min a day 2-3 times a week with weights or your own bodyweight. Don’t worry about what scale says when you put a few pounds of muscle.
