Reading magazines and Internet articles will reveal numerous rules of dieting and fat loss. Some of them are very complicated; most are unreliable, even baseless. Here are 10 of the simplest and easy-to-follow rules you can do on your own.
Exercise increases your metabolism – Increased metabolism helps you burn calories and fat, resulting to faster loss of weight.
Weight training helps burn fat and weight loss – Muscles require more calories to maintain than fat. Thus, more muscles in the body mean more calories burned.
Eat a well-balanced diet – The right combination of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and oil helps maintain an ideal weight.
Dieting does not mean you should not eat – Dieting means you should eat right. Plan your meals carefully. Include lean meat, whole grains, nuts and beans, oil, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid high-calorie diets like simple carbohydrates and sugar.
Do not skip breakfast – Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day for no reason. Eating breakfast allows you to eat less for the rest of the day, helping you lose some pounds.
Do not force your body to lose too much weight too soon – Remember, if you drop weight quickly, you are more likely to put it back on.
Liquid calories put on more weight than you think – Avoid sodas, smoothies, alcohol, coffee drinks, sports drinks, and juices.
Do not go for starvation to lose fat – Allowed yourself to get hungry will only give you more reasons to eat more. Eat small meals 5-6 times a day.
Combine proper diet with exercise – This is the most effective way to lose fat.
Eat less, do more – This is the most important rule to remember. If you do not burn the energy from the food you eat, it will just sit there and become fat.
