Unfortunately, there’s no easy way to spot reduce fat. But luckily, there are a few good steps you can take:
1. Calorie deficit - smart dieting for set periods of time
2. Strength training - lifting weights will help build lean muscles which aids in fat loss
3. Whole foods - they are the most filling especially when dieting, so make sure to eat mostly whole foods
4. Patience - be patient and remain consistent in your training and diet. Consistency is king!
Picture this: You’ve finally found a weight loss plan that works. You start seeing results and you begin think that nothing can stop you now.
Unfortunately, this is the fatal flaw most people make when it comes to getting a lean & fit body. They’ll get some initial results following a plan, but they never really think about what happens AFTER they lose weight.
Most people don’t realize that losing weight is only half the battle. You can’t just “stop” once you hit your weight loss goal. If you go back to doing what you were doing before, and you’ll surely end up right back to where you started!
A misconception among many people who wish to lose fat is to focus on cardio exercises. Cardio exercises play an important role in weight loss, but it’s not the only way. Here are a few things to consider when deciding if you should do cardio or not when trying to lose fat.
The holy month of Ramadan has started. This month requires our Muslim brothers to abstain from eating food, drinking, and doing a number of other behavioral, leisure, and pleasurable habits from sunrise to sunset. While the latter is a rather easy thing to do, abstinence from food and drink is where usually the struggle begins, especially during the first few days of Ramadan.
Fasting tests and enhances the endurance levels of your body and eating healthy food and having a work out regimen additionally helps strengthen and shape your body. I'm a non-Muslim but since I've been living in the UAE, I practise abstinence as a sign of respect to our Muslim brothers. I've also been in the fitness industry for years now, so I've come up with these 5 ways for staying fit and healthy which will hopefully help ease the challenges one may be faced with during Ramadan.
Controlling your diet is the key to losing weight and fat; there’s no doubt about that. But if you want to achieve maximum changes in your body composition—gain lean muscles and burn more body fat—weight training is also essential along with clean eating.
Aside from making you stronger, weight training also boosts the metabolism and builds lean muscles, which in turn will speed up weight loss.
Having been in the fitness industry for more than 10 years now, and being a bodybuilder myself, I can clearly say that apart from working out and proper dieting, right supplementation also plays a key role in achieving your fitness goals.
