This is a question that we constantly get asked. Despite the answer being rather obvious to some. Most people seamed to be confused.
Especially with the information overload out there, and every so called ‘expert’ claiming their way is the best way.
Another common issue we see and hear from people, ” Oh I tried that method, it didn’t work for me”.
The simple (and complicated) answer is that there is no “best way” to lose fat.
Most people are after a specific diet or exercise to get rid of excess fat from different areas of the body.
The truth is that you will lose fat when you continuously get less energy than you use. No matter what you eat and when.
And people tend to forget that all exercising burns calories.
Of course, HIIT may burn more than walking, but you should always aim for exercises that you like because you are better to maintain things that you make you feel good.
Its important to keep in mind Fat never burns locally.
It will always disappear first there where it first came no matter how hard you do sit-ups. But doing resistance training will increase muscle mass, and it forces fat to divide into the broader surface area.
That makes you look more fit.
Why most people fail to stick to a exercise program?
One of the most common issues I find when speaking to prospective clients is that they either have joined a gym, signed up for a 12 month contract and only showed up 2 weeks.
Another common one is they join the latest fad exercise program and again cannot seem to stick to it for more than a few weeks.
What’s a simple solution to this?
Well how about you do something you actually enjoy to start with…
If walking is your favourite thing to do, then start by going for a walk…
If boxing is your favourite form of exercise, then go hit the heavy bag for 5 min( great stress reliever too btw)
Once you get to the flow of doing this regularly for a couple of weeks, then you start to add on other exercises and even programs..
Once you make a consistent habit, you can start to focus on your nutrtion.
Even with nutrition keep is simple. Rather than following a full diet plan that you found on the internet.
Just focus on improving the quality of one meal.
Once you have mastered this meal. then move onto the other.
By doing this you will be able to create your very own lifestyle plan that you can actually stick to for the rest of your life.
Sure you can get some inspiration by following a guided plan to start with, and then eventually create your own version.
