I am trying to lose weight to look good for a friend’s wedding. I need to concentrate on my abs, thighs and hips.
Okay the best way to lose weight is to concentrate on 2 main things, this is your diet and your workout.
You need to get both of them right, now your diet should work like this… you should be eating a meal every 2-3
hours but not a junk food snack/meal. When i say meal i mean something which is healthy ie you might have some
pasta with tuna, or a quick banana as a snack. The foods you eat should be COMPLEX carbs ie pasta, brown bread etc
etc. You also want to try and get as much fruit + ved in a day. Make sure you have a good amount of protein
throughout your meals.
Now you also need to work out your Basal Metabolic Rate, this simply tells you how many calories you burn a day,
you need to find out how much your actually eating now its most likely to be in excess if it is you want to TRY
and cut down 500 calories and stick to your new total amount. This shouldnt be hard because you will be eating
Complex carbs which are just as filling but have a lower calorie count but are better for you than empty calories
which are found in simple carbs.
Here are some tips for you
Okay now for your workout what you want to be doing is concentrating on many different types of cardio exercises.
These are your jogging,swimming basically anything that makes you sweat and makes your heart pound. If you can
join a gym as they have a lot of cardio machines there. Now once you get in to the hang of say jogging, what i
mean by this is say you jog 20 mins everyday eventually you will come to a point where your not losing anymore
weight this is like hitting a brick wall, this means you need to up the game, start jogging that extra five
minutes a day, start taking that one less suagr in your cup of tea.
The most important tip to remember is to vary your cardio routines. Your body gets used to the same cardio
routines done over and over. By varying your routine, your body will have to adjust, and thus causes a rise in the
metabolic rate, thereby burning calories faster. But how many people do you see walking everyday in your
neighborhood, or on the same treadmill or elliptical machine at the gym, and their body never seems to be
changing. They do all that work and see no visible results. That is because the conventional wisdom is to get some
form of cardio 3-5 days a week at 30 – 60 minutes.
A better alternative is high impact interval training. High impact training could include doing a warm-up of 3-4
minutes on a treadmill, followed by 1 minute at 8 mph, then 1 1/2 minutes at 4 mph, then run 10 mph for 1 minute,
then walk at 4 mph for 1 1/2 minutes. You can repeat this 3 or 4 times to get a very effective, and not boring
You can also incorporate running or walking stairs, or do short sprints. The sprints need not be long (20,30, 50
yards), and you rest by walking back to the starting point. These are very effective. Have you ever seen a fat
person running the 100 yard dash at the Olympics?
And often overlooked is the jump rope. Do short bursts of jump rope at a brisk pace with some faster paced, or
double jumps, or criss crosses mixed in.
By applying these cardio tips on how to burn calories fast, you should be able to jump start your metabolism, and
make progress towards your fitness goals
I can guarantee you that you will lose weight i have had to both GAIN and LOSE weight as i was an ex boxer I
assure you that this will work, but the most important tip is motivation from YOU!
Best Of Luck
