Do you feel like you’re doing everything right but you still can’t lose weight? On today’s episode I’m summing up my 8 best weight loss tips ever. Lets go…
By burning calories via your workout you can then actually eat more calories so you won’t feel like you’re on a diet. I did a full video on this, showing you calculations on how this works. Click here to watch.
Forget the isolation and spot reduction exercises like bicep curls and crunches, and forget about those 90 minute cardio-athons. Focus on higher quality workouts using Afterburn style exercises like squats, deadlifts, presses, and quick but intense HIIT workouts to really maximize your metabolism. Check out my LiveLeanAfterburn.com program for the most effective workouts to maximize the afterburn effect.
No time to go to the gym? Working doesn’t necessarily have to mean going the gym and spending hours there. Quality over quantity. Try my 15 min no equipment body weight workouts found in LiveLean15.com.
In particular, start your day right with the Meat and Nuts Breakfast (popularized by Charles Poliquin)…not the conventional sugary breakfast of cereals and bread. A combo of protein and healthy fat first thing in the morning will provide sustained energy and focus throughout the day, as well as keeping you satiated so you’re not constantly hungry and then binging on bad foods throughout the day. Here’s a link to one of my meat and nuts recipe videos.
Drink lots of water throughout the day not sugary fruit juices or sodas. Also, many times when you think you’re feeling hungry, you actually need more water. Watch my video on 5 ways to drink more water.
Focus on making lifestyle changes, not short-term, unsustainable starvation tactics. Rather than thinking about what you need to do to lose weight fast. Think about what lifestyle changes and habits you need to form to Live Lean 365 days a year. Living Lean is a mindset. Your goal is to be persistent and make ongoing consistent daily progress. It’s about continuous progress, not perfection. Aim to be better every day.
Take control of the foods you eat by cooking your food rather than eating out and buying pre-packaged foods. Accept the fact that food marketers do not have your best health interests in mind. Invest in a cookbook like LiveLeanCookbook.com or learn how to cook with over 70 cooking lesson recipe videos at TeamLiveLean.com.
…and the macronutrient breakdown of your fitness staple foods like meat, poultry, fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, and nuts and seeds. General guidelines are to fill your plate with a palm size protein source, a handful of nuts or tbsp of healthy oils, and as many non-starchy vegetables as you want. Vegetables are free foods so eat as much as you want. By doing this, you’ll feel satiated and will have a hard time overeating.
Sleep is the often neglected factor in weight loss. Aim for 7-8 hours per night to allow your body to rejuvenate, grow, and recover. Poor sleep often leads to food binges. Here’s a link to a video I did on ways to improve your sleep.
