Pre-Summer News Tips for getting leaner
1. Know the Basics!
Losing weight seems anything but simple! With all of the
trendy diet plans and new workout fads it is easy to become
confused. The good news is that the meat and potatoes of
weight loss have not changed over the years. It all boils down to
Calories In and Calories Out. Too many Calories In, and you
will gain weight. Extra Calories Out and you will lose it. Keep
in mind that 3,500 calories equals one pound and every itty
bitty calorie counts!
5. The Big Lie.
Do you know the absolute BEST way to GAIN weight? Not
eating. Does that come as a surprise? Fasting for extended periods of time actually slows your metabolism (your body’s
rate of calorie burning). Add to that the fact that you will lose
muscle and energy by not supplying your body with proper
nutrients. Instead of not eating at all try just eating less!
6. Cut The Fat!
Before you bite into a tasty steak, check for visible fat on the
meat. Cut this excess fat off and you will end up with a
healthier meal. Remove the skin off your chicken and make it a
habit to select extra lean cuts of meat while grocery shopping.
