There are TONS of ways to lose weight. You can lose weight through different types of diets, different workout routines, and even different lifestyle changes.
However the one thing that’s always worked for my clients..
Is to keep weight loss simple.
That’s why in this article I’ll be going over 4 extremely simple ways you can lose weight and shred fat, starting today.
Let’s get to it.
Drink More Water. Lots of it
First on our list is water. I cannot stress this enough that water is so crucial for losing weight. More than 60% of my new clients confess that they rarely or are hardly drinking enough water.
If that sounds like you this tip should help you out.
Here’s why you should be drinking more water.
Water is a natural appetite suppressant : Did you know a lot of people may confuse hunger over thirst? Studies show that individuals who drink water while hungry, become satisfied after quenching their thirst. The result? They’ve scored no extra calories and are one step closer to dropping weight.
Water enhances calorie burn: By drinking more water one may experience the benefit of increased calories burned at rest. So if you drank plenty of water before reading this article, know that you too would be burning more calories at this very moment.
Water prevents drinking high calorie beverages: How many times have you drank a cup of juice or popped open a can of soda because you were simply thirsty? A lot of us don’t think when we do this as it has become second nature. I mean it’s a survival skill to quench our thirst. However, if you had water conveniently at reach, drinking unnecessary calories can be prevented.
Here’s how you can do this.
Purchase a Hyrdo Flask or anything similar. Amazon has a variety of different types of flasks, i’ll list some of my favorites below.
If you’ve been following the articles, you’ll know that it’s very crucial to know your macros. However if you’re new here, let me give you crash course as to why knowing your macros is crucial to losing weight.
Macros are broken down into protein, fats, and carbs. These 3 elements are the sum of our total daily energy expenditure and calorie deficit. More on this below.
Your total daily energy expenditure is the total amount of calories needed to maintain your body functions as well as your active lifestyle.
Now in order to lose weight you’ll need to decrease your total daily energy expenditure by a percentage in order to dive into a calorie deficit.
Once you’re consistently eating at a calorie deficit, you lose weight!
It’s not rocket science and it’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it. If you want to learn more about macros, definitely check out my EBOOK Macros. In this Ebook you’ll learn how to calculate your own calorie deficit and more so how to mesh your macros with your lifestyle.
Mentally prepare yourself for conditioning
I’m not saying you need to be a track star in order to do conditioning. Conditioning could be as simple as going up the flight of steps 2-3 times, walking on the treadmill at an incline, or even doing a HIIT workout.
The key with conditioning is to boost your metabolism, lose water weight, and further burn more calories.
I do want to make it known that conditioning is not completely necessary to lose weight. Technically if you’re consistently eating at a calorie deficit, you’re guaranteed weight loss.
Conditioning just speeds up the process, and who doesn’t want a nicer body..
Shock your body by overcoming plateaus
When our bodies go into stress like exercising, it quickly adapts. As we continue to do the same exercise, that same exercise becomes easier. This is what I call reaching a plateau.
Unfortunately, some people fall victim of staying in a plateau. Why? Because it’s comfortable.
& here’s the thing..
No one ever improves by being comfortable, weight loss included.
So how do we overcome plateaus?
You can increase the intensity of the same workout
Do different workouts
Increase the weight
Increase the time
Kind of get where I’m going with this?
The key is to always switch up your workouts and by doing so..
You’ll be taking giant steps forward more than you would by being comfortable.
