Most people, at some point in their lives, reach the stage where they are unhappy with their bodies and want to see a change. For some, it might be the signs of aging that they dislike. For most, it’s the addition of extra weight. Previously trim women might find a big change after childbirth, while lifestyle changes such as moving in with a partner for the first time might prompt a weight gain. If you want to get rid of that fat, and get rid of it now, these are five ways to go about it.
Introducing exercise into your daily routine is very important, especially if you lead a largely sedentary lifestyle. Walk everywhere if you can, and take the stairs instead of the lift. Get a fitness watch or step counter so you can set goals and stick to them. If you aren’t moving, you aren’t burning fat.
One of the most effective ways to change your body is to change your diet. You may have heard of the 5:2 diet, which is less of a diet and more of a lifestyle. You eat normally for five days, with an emphasis on being as healthy as possible, then you fast for two. Getting hungry isn’t as bad as you expect, especially not when you get used to it, and there are products you can use to reduce your appetite such as meal replacement drinks.
The more you sweat, the more weight you will immediately lose. You can up your sweat by increasing the heat while you work out, or wearing a bin bag over your clothes (just make sure to tear arm and head holes). You can also spend some time in the sauna, though do not try to work out in a steam room – it can be dangerous for your health and leave your body overheating with no one around to help.
Unfortunately, if your problem is with certain areas of your body, you might only have so much success in reducing them. It can be a pain, quite literally, to exercise with large breasts, and if you dislike your own, you can take action. Get them reduced in size with a quick and simple procedure, then carry on living and loving life. Without that extra weight, you will feel a spring in your step.
Ultimately, your biggest weapon in the fight against fat is knowledge. Know how many calories you are eating daily, and start chucking out those foods which leave you putting on the most bulk. Know what to eat to stay lean, and learn the best exercises to focus on different parts of your body. Weigh yourself regularly so that you are aware of fluctuations in your weight, and so that you can see what caused them. Awareness will give you the tools to fight smarter, which is so much better than fighting harder.
Losing weight is never a losing battle. If you are finding it difficult, and it is not going as fast as you would like, try to stay motivated. Keep your goal in mind, and everything should be that much easier – remember why you are doing this and you’ll find your resolve strengthened.
