How You Can Lose Weight Easily

How You Can Lose Weight Easily
Before you scoff at me, I am not off my rockers. Yes, you have read the title correctly. Losing weight can be easy if you know how to do it and are committed in doing it right.

If we can lose weight so easily, then why is it that there are so many overweight people who are not successful in shedding their body fat? The reason is simple, they just do not have the right information.

For example, we all know that we need to exercise to burn more fat, right? However, do you know that some exercises are better than others to achieve this result? Of course you do, don't you? Cardio exercises like running on the treadmill is the best for fat burning, right?

Then let me ask you a question. If that is the case, then why are there so many people doing long and boring jogging on the treadmill are unsuccessful in losing weight? You are probably one of them, aren't you or wouldn't be reading this article, right? From my experience and many research has also shown, the best exercises for burning off body fat is weight training to build muscles and High Intensity Interval Training.

You need to build muscles so that you can burn fat more effectively. I can already visualize my female readers gawking with the idea of weight training. If you are one of them, be rest assured that you won't be building big bulky muscles because you just do not have enough testosterone to do so. Testosterone is an important muscle building hormone and without them, your muscles can't grow big.

What is the role of muscle in losing body fat? Well, muscles are active tissues and therefore the more muscle you have on you, the more your body uses up calories to sustain your muscle. In other words, the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate will go.

Another reason why weight training is important for losing body fat is because when you are working out with compound exercises such as full squats, dead lifts and bench presses, you are working out major muscle groups which mean that you will need to use more energy and by using more energy, you are burning more calories.

Perhaps some of you may be apprehensive about working out with weights because you don't want to look like huge professional bodybuilders. Guys, it is not possible to get to that size even if you want to without professional coaching and special nutrition.

On days when you are not working out with weights, do HIIT workouts. You can trawl the internet for many versions of HIITs. Many studies have shown that HIIT is very effective for fat burning.

To lose weight even more effectively, do watch what you are eating. All you need to do is just simply eliminate high glycemic carbs, sugar and processed foods from your meals and drinks.

Next type of foodstuff to avoid is those that are easily digestible such as white bread, white rice and foods that are made from flour such as cookies and cakes. This is because since they are digested quickly, they are into your bloodstream quickly too and before you can use them up for energy, they are already being stored as fat.

Say no to processed manufactured foods. You know, those foods that come in boxes or metal tins found in supermarkets. This is because processed foods contain preservatives and chemicals which cause your body to accumulate fat.

By doing what is described above, you will see results week after week. I told you losing weight can be easy, didn't I?
