Some of you may be wondering why you aren’t getting a loss of weight.
Well, there are a few things you want to know which will accumulate to be the reason why
But first and foremost, the main thing is because you are simply eating too many calories.
You’re eating too much food still.
If you want to lose weight and drop body fat you must simply eat less food OR you can have low-calorie dense foods
If you eat low-calorie-dense foods, then you will still feel as though you are eating the same amount but in reality, you are eating fewer calories because the foods are of a lower density which means they have low calories.
This is what I do for some of my clients as I have them buy some foods that are “50% fewer calories” or “30% reduced-fat”.
I’m sure you have seen foods with these titles before at the grocery store.
And if you, haven’t you just needed to look a bit harder as they are there.
But essentially replacing some foods with the ones you have will help you drop weight.
But ultimately it still comes back to taking in fewer calories.
This is the basis of how our bodies are working in order to fluctuate our weight.
Another thing to keep in mind as well.
We are all genetically different and will not all lose weight on the same scale or speed.
Some of us retain fat better than others.
This is a broader subject but to just put in a general statement if you don’t lose weight as fast as you think you should be don’t get discouraged.
It takes time, stick to your plan, make sure and see if you are following all your protocols, and watch your eating as well.
NOW…. aside from this…other things you want to do.
And do longer forms of cardio
Running, swimming, elliptical machine, skipping, biking
Whatever you like and choose, just add in cardio.
If you are wanting to keep on muscle as much as possible while losing weight, then there is a different tactic of cardio you would use
But to keep it on the topic of discussion, you want to add in cardio, and do so at first three times a week and then increase it after it gets easier for you.
Weight train with full-body exercises at least 3 times a week
Do this for at least 45 min each session and make sure to control your form as much as possible.
You can go to my YouTube channel at atozbodyfitness, or even on Instagram and Tik Tok, where I have a lot of free content where I show you how to properly exercise and execute them properly.
And always challenge yourself with your workouts.
People don’t push themselves enough and take the easier way out.
Move a little more, add another 30 seconds to that exercise, try to lift another few reps (as long as your form is good!) and extend the session for another 10 minutes, put in another set.
We adapt and get stronger as we exercise but we need to create progressive overload while doing so.
This is something easy and basic one can follow.
There are more advanced things one can do but if you are struggling at this point then I wouldn’t even look to anything further just yet.
Start with getting yourself into a routine of working out, build yourself a schedule, and apply these simple rules.
If you stick by them then you start to see that you will start to lose weight.
Consistent action creates consistent progress which is why you can’t stop.
