Weight Loss Begins With Water

Before you roll your eyes and say, “tell me something I don’t know,” consider this: 1 in 10 medical consultations for tiredness and fatigue can be attributed to dehydration. If you’re dragging at 7:00 am, how are you going to get up and get your butt to the gym?

Take Control

What’s worse is, the mechanism in our brain that signals thirst is often mistaken for hunger, which certainly isn’t going to help you win the battle of the bulge. Try the “10 Gulp Rule” as a surefire way to keep thirst/cravings at bay. Every time a water bottle touches your lips, drink 10 gulps before putting it down and you’ll be well-hydrated all day long.

A Toned Body is Made in the Kitchen, Not the Gym

You can’t out-exercise a bad diet. And there a couple of reasons for that. One, exercise — not even an hour of hardcore cardio — can compensate for a diet that’s fueled by a nightly dose of Mexican food and margaritas. And here’s that second reason: When we exercise, we tend to use food-based rewards to treat ourselves for a job well-done.

The Solution

It doesn’t matter how many crunches you do; if you’re not eating right, you’re never going to see those abs, period! Eat a well-balanced diet that features plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole-grains, and optimal protein. It really comes down to nutrition drives weight loss and muscle gain – both contribute to a faster metabolic rate.

Try One Small Change at a Time, Not Two or Three

That Monday start date rolls around and we’ve instantly transformed into morning people, ready to down a gallon of water, blend up a protein shake and hit the gym before work. But, for most of us, that moment is short lived. The biggest mistake that people make is that they take on way too much too soon.

Baby Steps

If you shrink down those lofty goals into just one smaller commitment at a time, you’ll have much greater success. So, try drinking more water one week, and then working in the better breakfast the following week. And there’s a bigger payoff than just a lower number on the scale. Those small changes “are the baby steps to lifelong change”.

Weigh Yourself Right, Not Often

Having trained hundreds of people who have gone on to lasting weight-loss success, I  have two words of advice when it comes to the scale: STAY OFF. It’s recommended to only weigh yourself once a week. That means, weighing yourself on the same day, at the same time, on the same scale — every time — for real results.

The Dreaded Scale Solution

Why just once a week? We lose weight in a saw-tooth pattern: one day we’re up a couple of pounds and the next day we’re down, which can be discouraging when you’re focused on results. Weighing in once a week is going to keep you out of your head and keep your mind in the game where it belongs, eating healthy foods and working out.

You’ve Got To Do Some Weight Training

If you’re not resistance training while you’re going all-out on your cardio routine, you’re simply losing muscle. And losing muscle mass in our bodies translates to lower metabolism, even when we’re not exercising. If you’re just doing cardio, you can lose about one pound of muscle for every four pounds of fat.

Integrate Cardio & Strength Training

Which means you’re sacrificing muscle for weight loss results and eventually the results will come to a halt. To maintain your muscle, incorporate two or three days of strength training — think: weight lifting, squats, lunges, etc. — into your weekly mix. Try a combination of strength training and cardio the one-two punch for ultimate weight loss.
