Attempting to get healthy in 2 weeks is an hard-won undertaking but it is manageable! Weight loss is based on 7 elementary fundamentals that are important to finding a healthy approach to life. Having the proper groundwork you are able to look better and feel better fast.
Eat a Low Fat and High-Carbohydrate Diet.
Most of the time when people think of carbohydrates or "carbs" they for the most part think of pastas and breads, however, complex carbohydrates can be obtained in many forms such as legumes and fresh vegetables. Increasing your intake of complex carbohydrates that include legumes and veggies (approx 50% to 60% of your regular intake of calories) will guarantee that your daily allowance of fats are low.
Exercise is the key to reaching and maintaining your weight loss.
Exercising between an hr and an hour and a half a day is recommended for people looking to lose weight. It may sound like much but even walking for 2 thirty minute sessions totaling an hour is better for you than not working out at all.
When you are just starting out, begin at a moderate pace and work your way up to elaboration for a full hour. Going too fast in the beginning can lead to injuries and injuries can lead to dismay.
Getting 60 to 90 minutes of exercise a day may seem like a lot to many people, but if losing weight is a priority, meaning better health and looking and feeling better about yourself, then an hour is nothing.
Although it is important to keep your calories down between the 1,400 to 1,600 calorie per day range, it is also very critical that you begin your day with a healthy breakfast.
Eating breakfast can ignite your metabolism right from the start of your day and also stop overeating later on in the day. A win-win.
Keep Track of Your Weight Loss.
As you start your weight loss program it is important to reach certain goals in order to stay motivated. Most weight loss programs will require you to start exercising, and when you do begin your weight will go up and down with water weight and muscle gain. Because of this up and down, it's possible to become disappointed. This is why I recommend only weighing yourself once per week and keeping track of it.
Doing this will give you a better idea of your actual weight loss and keep you focused.
It's easy to say "I'm going to the gym today", but sometimes it requires more to actually achieve this. Scheduling the actual time that you'll be at the gym and leaving the gym are an important part of goal-setting and adhering to your weight loss plan. Bringing your gym bag in your car will help you avoid any hesitation in your plan. Its easier to go straight to the gym after work, then it is to go home, get your clothes, unbend for a second so go to the gym. Have the strength of your day to carry you to the gym.
When you get hunger pangs, do you know what you are going to eat to settle your pangs? Outlining your meals is a great way to contain those strong desires for junk food or mid-day empty calorie treats. A bag of carrots, or a pre-made sandwich that you brought to work can go a long way in winning the weight loss battle. Sticking with a meal plan can be a simple way to get a higher rate of accomplishment.
Get rid of those self-defeating thoughts and invalid outlooks that are going to only hold you back. They have the capability to keep you from achieving your aspirations. Negativity and doubtfulness are your opposition and maintaining a positive mentality can be your ally.
Weight loss can be hard and it may appear to be an uphill battle at first, but like anything it takes time. Knowing and following through with these 7 elementary fundamentals will help you lose weight at a quicker rate and get you to where you want to be more rapidly, and help you remain there longer. Looking and feeling better doesn't have to be so hard. You CAN lose weight in 2 weeks!
