There isn’t so much philosophy when it comes to burning fat and losing weight.
All you need to do is cut off sugar, consume more proteins, vegetables and increase the intake of healthy fats.
To lose weight in the healthy way, you need to have a strict diet plan which consists of 3 small meals. Eating after 7pm is definitely out. And of course the other part of this journey is exercise.
Many people don’t realize that weight gain can be caused by some working hormones in the body, and the main hormone connected to weight gain, overconsumption and obesity is the stress hormone.
Another reason for weight gain is food. That is why we offer you some advice you should follow so you can keep the weight gain hormones balanced and activate the hormones which burn excess fat.
STEP 1: CUT OFF YOUR SUGAR INTAKE
Increasing the intake of vegetables like greens and beans is one the most important changes you need to make. You can eat them either raw or steamed and combine them to create the perfect, healthy meals.
One of the best thing about vegetables is their fiber content which helps with cleansing the body. If you want to achieve the best results, consume greens for breakfast and big salads for lunch and dinner.
Another way you can consume veggies is to juice them. Parsley, kale, celery and spinach are great for people who have blood sugar issues. String beans, asparagus and cauliflower on the other hand are very rich in protein.
If you don’t like unsweetened juices, you can make one from beets, carrots and apples. Add 2 tablespoons of ground flax seed and 6 tablespoons of hemp seed to make the juice even healthier and tastier.
STEP 2: CONSUME ONLY VEGGIE PROTEIN AND HEALTHY FATS
Another essential change you need to make is replace the animal protein with legumes like beans and lentils. If you tend to use butter a lot, you should replace it with olive oil or coconut oil. You should also gradually decrease the intake of vegetable carbs such as whole grains and rice to half per serving.
The protein and oil intake keep you satiated for longer. If you don’t consume protein and healthy oils, you will crave carbs and be nutrient deficient which slows down the weight loss process.
STEP 3: FOLLOW A STRICT MEAL SCHEDULE
When trying to lose weight, you need to train your body not to crave food after 7 pm. In order to burn excess fat, you should consume 3 small meals, or 2 bigger meals and a salad for dinner.
Avoid drinking fruit juices, herbal teas or sugary drinks between meals. Bear in mind that it’s not good if you skip a meal.
Cook your own meals, eat slowly and stop eating the moment you feel full.
STEP 4: LIGHT WEIGHT TRAINING
All you need is 30 minutes every other day.
Adding light weight movements into your routine will stimulate fat burning.
You can also do a 10 minute cardio like running or biking to warm up.
I would recommend to perform at least 2 sets of each exercise and take a 2 minute break between them.
