If you've decided that you want to lose weight with diet and an exercise plan, then you are definitely embarking on the right road. Let's see how you can do that.
Losing weight and burning fat is dependent on one thing only; the energy consumption of your body must exceed your energy intake so that your body needs to draw on its fat storage to make up for the energy it needs.
Depending on your normal daily food intake, you may or may not need a diet if you add exercise to your daily routine.
Let's assume that you do need to adjust your diet.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make with a diet is eating less frequently.
People often go on a diet by eating only one or two meals per day, i. e. , cutting out one meal.
That is completely the wrong way to go about it because the less frequently you eat; the more your body will want to store fat. You see, with this wrong approach, your body “thinks" it is not getting fed properly so it needs to store fat for the times it is not being fed.
The proper approach is to eat smaller meals more frequently.
Spread out your usual daily food intake over six or seven meals throughout the day.
This way you increase your metabolism, and your body is less inclined to want to store fat.
Also, cut out the obvious fattening foods, like fries. It is okay to have these things now and again, in a small portion. They just shouldn't be part of your daily meals.
Now, as far as an exercise plan goes to burn off the fat, you need to do between 30 and 40 minutes of some type of aerobic exercise every day.
This could consist of walking, jogging, cycling, or doing any of the aerobic exercises available in your local gym.
Your body only kicks into fat burn mode after around 10 to 12 minutes of exercise. That's why it's important to go for 30 to 40 minutes.
Keep your exercise to a level where you can still carry a normal conversation. In other words, you do not have to over-exert yourself for fat burn exercise.
This level will maintain your heart rate at around 75% of the maximum recommended for your age group.
Lastly, be patient.
It takes your body a while to adapt to this new routine.
After around week six of doing this, you should start seeing remarkable differences.
Losing weight with diet and an exercise plan gives you lasting weight loss in a healthy way, even though it does not provide instantaneous results.
