Are you curious about how to finally lose the bloat, lower the fat, and have shapely muscles? The truth is there is no magic potion. Your success lies in the steps below and following them properly.
If you can eat natural food, drink water, do some light weight training and cardio you will lose fat and boost energy.
Eat natural foods – This may seem elementary, but most people don’t realize the profound effect that natural food has on the human body.
When I say natural food, I mean whole food that which you can hunt, pick, gather, and harvest, not the processed so-called “healthy” prepackaged dinners you can buy in the supermarket. When selecting meats, eggs, and vegetables, organic would be the wiser choice because organic food is more useable by the body.
Natural food is full of enzymes, vitamins, and minerals, the bare essentials our bodies thrive on. If you fail to eat such nutrients, your body will have a difficult time letting go of fat and you will feel drained.
When you begin eating natural foods, your metabolism begins to function as it should and your body becomes better nourished. Being properly nourished allows your body to function as it was meant to and you will find yourself less bloated, feeling more energetic, and weight loss is able to occur.
Drink enough water – More people are drinking water these days, but most people are still not drinking enough. Water is necessary for toning the muscles, the absorbing food, removing waste, and cooling the body.
Other advantages of water are that, it serves as a natural appetite suppressant, metabolizes stored fat, and flushes toxins and excess sodium out of the body.
An easy way to ensure you get enough water each day is to drink water with your meals and drink a pint of water between meals.
Eat balanced meals - For best fat-loss success, each meal should be balanced. A lot of people eat a piece of fruit and call that a meal. It’s not a meal unless protein is grouped with it. Be sure that every meal has a form of protein for balance and to prevent sugar spikes, which causes fat gain.
Eat meals on time – We discussed the importance of the quality of food and balanced meals, so now we going to discuss the time of each meal.
One of the most important factors in fat-loss success is eating your scheduled meal on time.
Ideally, you should eat a small and balanced meal every three hours. While most people may know this, few follow this rule and end up skipping meals or eating haphazardly.
Weight train – Weight training will build lean muscle mass, as well as muscle and bone density. The more lean muscle you add to your body, the more calories your body will burn at play and at rest.
Adding lean muscle to your frame will improve your metabolism, body shape, and put the perfect curves in all the right places.
Do cardio – The human body was designed to move, and therefore cardio is essential. Now, this doesn’t mean you have to sprint every day for hours. Simply getting out and walking around the block is enough to get things moving.
If you are serious about fat loss, then all 6 of these steps should be followed precisely. You simply cannot select one or two parts of the equation; you have to include all to get fat-loss results. These 6 proven ways to ensure fat loss is the recipe for success and you must add all the ingredients in the proper amounts as noted, otherwise, you won’t get the expected outcome.
Added Note: Many people say they know the above and follow it, however most people don't. Do you really plan your meals in balanced proportions and eat them on time, every time? This includes weekends and cheat day. Usually, this these are the missing factor and the reason why your eating program may not. If you absolutely do the above precisely and are not getting your weight-loss results, you could be suffering from a destroyed metabolism, which can be reversed.
