Fat to Fit in 3 Months or Less
Let’s say you’ve got a big occasion on the horizon, like a wedding or family get together with people you haven’t seen for years. You want to look great, that’s understandable. Maybe time has taken it’s toll slightly and you don’t quite match up to how you did ten years ago – it happens to us all.
Thankfully, there’s something you can do about it. Many celebrities and fitness gurus manage to shed weight in previously unbelievable amounts of time. You’ve all seen those Hollywood actresses who put weight on for a role and then shed it again in weeks – now you can do it too!
The Athlete Mentality
Some athletes turn up for pre-season training having gone months of over-eating with little or no exercise. They soon manage to get back into shape in no time at all – but how do they do it? The simple answer is hard work. Dieting and losing weight isn’t rocket science. You need to eat less and work out more. It’s also important that you eat the right sorts of foods.
It might seem difficult, but athletes are doing so much exercise when they train and compete, it becomes easy for them. Sometimes they’ve got to eat MORE just to have enough energy and so they don’t lose TOO MUCH weight. Although this might seem like a tall order for a normal individual who isn’t competing and training at a professional level, the same principles hold true – eat less and exercise more.
Watch Your Calories
Depending on your weight, age and height, an adult needs to consume around 2,500 calories a day to maintain current weight. You obviously need to find out the specific amount for your own body, and then do your best to eat less. You should also be avoiding fatty foods or those high in carbohydrates. Unfortunately, processed and fast foods are normally the best tasting – but they aren’t normally good for your body.
Sustainability vs Fast Results
Many doctors and dieticians will recommend doing things at a sustainable pace and making sure you don’t cut your calories too much. The top athletes sometimes need to eat 10,000 calories a day when training. If you manage to shave 500 or a thousand calories off your daily intake and manage to work out or do some exercise every day, you should see results quite quickly.
A sustainable diet is also important as many won’t want to put the weight straight back on. It’s easy to stick to something for a while, but if you don’t allow yourself any leeway – it’s also much easier to fall off the wagon. Many dieters put the weight straight back on when they come off the plan, so it’s important you keep at things at a sustainable pace.
However, since you might have a specific goal in mind like an important family occasion that you need to lose weight for, this might not be a problem for you. Although not recommended by those in the health profession, certain fad diets can help you achieve the short term results you desire.
