It is time to start losing weight when your body is shouting “help me lose weight now. " Your health starts to deteriorate and you are feeling the effect of overweight.
All of us look forward to having the good body shape that we have in the days when we were younger. We flipped some of our old photos, admiring how good we look then wishing that our current overweight body was like what we had before. In order to get back to your “good old shape", you'll need planning, discipline and commitment to make it happen.
When people start to lose weight, they will rush in doing it and in fact began to see some results i. e. losing up 15 pounds in as little as 3 months. However, something gone wrong and they stopped losing weight. So what happened? People may start to lose focus or they simply don't have the passion to continue on.
From this trend mentioned above, it is best that you lose weight fast at an early fast, before you lose any focus. By losing weight fast in the early stage of your weight loss journey, then you'll be motivated to continue the journey. Also, you need to have a good work out plan that you enjoy so that you'll be motivated to continue to shed those pounds.
Below are 6 great ways to help you to lose weight fast in the gym and also to ensure you reach your weight loss target:
1) Weight Lifting
Do not know that your muscle tissues will burn more calories compared to your normal exercise routine i. e. running and swimming? By doing weight lifting and building more muscles, you will be burning more fat and hence losing more weight. The metabolism of your body will increase as your build more muscles, and this will result in continuous fat burning in your body. So, will this motivate you to do more weight lifting?
2) Exercise with caution
When you are trying to lose weight, be caution when you are exercising, especially with the gym machines. If you are not familiar with these machines, seek advice from the trainer. Do not take a risk exercising on machines that you are not familiar with as you may hurt yourself.
Getting hurt is the last thing that you want to happen when you are trying to shed those pounds. When you are hurt, you can't exercise and can't move around. When that happens, you may begin to gain some weight. Everything that you've worked on for the past few weeks have been wasted as you see those increasing pounds. You may lose motivation to continue or you may lose the momentum you have created. The worst part is you hurt yourself so badly that it hurts when you want to exercise again.
Even if you are able to continue with your weight loss journey, your target weight will definitely take longer to reach. You will have to start all over again and that is not easy. So, take precaution whenever you are exercising and slow down when you feel that you have overworked - always listen to your body signals.
3) Have a good healthy diet
You have a good exercise program in the gym, you workout and you feel good about it. However, remember that there are 2 sides to losing weight - exercise and diet. You must combine your exercise with a good and healthy diet. It is useless if you exercise well, but are engaging in unhealthy food after the gym session. This will put a set-back to your weight loss program.
After your gym session, drink lots of water instead of taking the soda which contained lots of sugar. Sugar will not do any good to your body as they tend to create more body fat. Also spread out your meals. Eat small portions each time for up to 5 times a day. By doing this, you will be increasing the metabolism in your body.
4) Have a good plan for your workout
You need to plan on areas that you need to work out. I know most people will just jump on any gym machines, start to work out hard, thinking that they are doing a great job in losing weight. This is a wrong thinking.
You need to plan your workout effectively. Take note of each machine in the gym and in what area are they effective on. If you are not sure, then talk to the gym trainer. When you know how these gym machines affect your body, then you will be able to plan your workout more effectively. By planning your workout, you will accelerate to lose more pounds.
You should only plan to work out 3 to 4 times per week and around 30 to 45 minutes per session. If you work harder than this, it will not help to shed more pounds. Never think that the more workout you do, you'll be losing more weight. Think along the line of effective workout to lose weight.
If you overworked your body, instead of losing more weight, you will be burning less calories. This is because your muscles will break down if you overworked them. I have this wrong idea when I was young and would go to gym almost every day. How wrong I am!
5) Take nutritional supplements
Want to accelerate your fat burning process in the gym? Then consider getting nutritional supplements. In order to help you burn more calories, you can consider taking fatty acids, amino acids and why protein. You need to specifically buy and take these nutrients as they are generally not found in your daily food. Again, if you are not sure what to take, consult the trainer at your favourite gym. Never take fat burning pills which promise you a sky - instant weight loss without any workout. Those pills may work on short-term, it will not be consistent to lose weight. The best way to lose weight is still to combine a good planned workout with a healthy diet.
6) Have weekly goals
Always track your progress on weekly basis. If you do not track your progress, you will not know where you are going. Monitor your progress and you'll know if your workout is effective.
Sometimes you may do the same workout for a few months and you do not seem to lose weight. When that happens, take a break and analyse your workout. Is there anything that you can adjust to make it more effective or you can consult the trainer at your favourite gym to have a more effective workout.
If you listen to the abovementioned steps for an effective workout in the gym, I am sure your will be well on your way to reduce weight and your body no longer have to shout “help me to lose weight now".
So, go on be consistent and work smartly on your gym routine instead of doing things in a disorganized and inconsistent manner and I am sure you'll reach your weight loss target in no time.
