Have you ever said “I just can’t lose weight!” or do you wonder why the scale is not moving in your favor no matter what you are doing? Chances are there are a few small tweaks to your daily routine that may need to happen to get results that you are looking for.
Here are a few tips or tweaks that you can add that may get better results:
1. Eat more throughout the day: This may seem a bit out of whack, but trust me with this one. When you eat, your metabolism revs up to digest your food, if you are only eating 3 times a day, your metabolism will drop back down after it has digested your meal, but if you add some snacks in between, it will keep your metabolism pumping which in fact burn more calories throughout the day. The key is to eat the right foods, not junk or sugary or fried or processed foods.
2. Reduce your cardio: Okay, so most people love to hop the treadmill for 90 minutes or take a Zumba class and get in a good sweat session, but if that is all you are doing, you are doing yourself and your body a disservice. Reduce your cardio and replace some of those days with some resistance and weight training. Why? Cardio doesn’t build muscle and muscle is is what you need to burn fat. For every one pound of muscle you gain, you will burn an additional 50 calories per day. If you gain 10 pounds of lean muscle, you would burn 500 calories a day, just by being alive (no treadmill needed). So, drop the treadmill and pick up some weights!
3. Join an Accountability Group or Find an Accountability Partner: Momemtum is key to reach your goals and if you are not consistently working out and only working out when you feel like it, chances are you will not get great results. Getting plugged into an Accountability Group can be a great way to stay committed to working out and eating healthy on a more consistent basis.
