4 Fat Loss Tips (5 of 5)

1. Get regular sleep and early ????
The evening is when many can procrastinate and suddenly 9pm turns into 11:30pm via facebook and faff!
Sleep is when our body physically gets to rest, but internally and hormonally we reset and rebalance.
Interrupted or short sleep will affect on this, as well as blood sugar levels, leading to poor concentration, reaching for carb based foods and excessive caffeine throughout the morning. Ideally lights off by 11pm, and keeping bedtimes consistent.
If you want to see what you do in an evening, grab a piece of paper and label it 9-9:30, 9:30-10 etc, then for a week write down what you do during those times, and see how much ‘excess’ there may be?

2. Do What your trainer says! ????
Could even be me if you read my info posts!
If a professional gives some advice and backs it up with both experience and results that can be shown, it’s probably worth taking note of. I’d listen to someone if I was seeking help and they knew more about it than me! You’d listen to someone around advice on your car or boiler etc?

If it can’t be backed up, then take with a pinch of salt!
I think we’d all agree experience with results is something you can’t beat

3. Food will ALWAYS be the most important. ????????????????
Yep, even over exercise!
I’ve seen plenty of people pounding the streets, totalling up miles or classes done to ‘burn the calories’.
How about consuming or changing those calories in the first place so you don’t need to be slogging your guts out?!
Carb consumption is excessive for SO many of us,
as proven in my 4 week Fat Loss plan, where awareness and reduction around them has provided INSANE results for people. Just need to increase your protein and fats alongside….. but as we know, being ‘hand held’ with anything consistent is always easier http://www.theweightlosstips.co.uk/4-week-fatloss/
4. Start SMALL to see BIG ????????
And I’m talking about steps and intentions.
This step will give you the biggest mid-long term returns, especially if you have a lot of weight to lose.
Too often people focus on where they want or need to be than where they are and what’s the next step.
Too often we’ll go ‘gung-ho’, get on the health-wagon,
and commit to changes that are too overwhelming or not sustainable.
This is why people go round and round,
diet to diet, on it and off it.
Grab a piece of paper, split it down the middle and one side write down ALL the things you think you’re doing too much of, or aren’t helping results,
and on the other side,
all the things you’re doing too little of, or could start doing to improve your situation.
Then pick just ONE of those things, either side,
and ask yourself “What’s the FIRST, smallest step,
i can take to either start doing, do more of,
or stop doing, or do less of XXXX?
Then repeat it every day for a week.
If the bottom falls out of that,
you’ve gone ‘too big’ with it …. do it again, but smaller in steps.
Once you manage a week, choose another thing.
We all want GREAT results and quickly,
but depending on where you’re at you might need to just go ‘more steady and often’ …… we’re on this planet (hopefully) for some time
