There are three main things that need to be remembered when you want to lose weight: exercise, healthy eating and plenty of water.
- Exercise is really important for burning calories and for creating strength in your muscles as well as for making you feel awake and lively. You should exercise everyday but some make sure that some days are a lot less intense compared to others. There should be about 3 or 4 days in the week in which you will actually have an intense workout session through things such as gym classes, sports, cardio machines etc.
- Without eating the right kinds of foods it is going to be really hard to lose weight. It's time to cut out all greasy foods, cakes, lollies and replace them with veggies, fruits, lean meats, and foods rich in protein which are especially important if you are exercising a lot.
- Water is so helpful in weightloss because it can help speed up your metabolism, flushes out all the toxins in your body, keeps you hydrated and there's the extra bonus of fresh, healthy looking skin. If you find water a bit boring then you can always try something like coconut water, or have it boiled with a squeeze of lemon or lime, or maybe just add a few mints leaves to your glass of water for some extra freshness and then there's always things like green tea which is rich in antioxidants and gives the metabolism an extra kick.
You should be consuming around 1500 calories each day, or maybe less depending on your body type and sex, so make sure you aren't depriving your body of all the strength and proteins it gets through the food you consume each day. Eating less calories is not a good way of losing weight and usually can result in weight gain in the end or a momentary weight loss which soon comes right back.
I'll be signing up for gym classes tomorrow which actually makes me extremely excited because I'm pretty sick of feeling like a lazy fat blob all the time..
