A-Avoid alcohol as much as possible. Alcohol slows down fat burning in your body. In addition, all these drinks are merely empty calories that you do not need.
B -Bring your A-Game to the gym each time. You need to do intense workouts and to give it your all. Remember, you are paying for every second of that gym membership, so make sure you get everything you can out of it.
C -Cut down on all sugar rich foods. Fruit are OK, but anything with refined sugar should be eaten in moderation. This will help you reduce your appetite and keep your eating under control.
D – Don’t fall for shady products promoted by fancy infomercials. Often, these products aren’t worth much.
E – Eliminate tempting food from your home. This way you will have more trouble finding and eating it.
F – Finish each workout hard. Remember, you’re going to rest soon. So, do some workout finishers at the end of each workout. It will make your entire workout much better.
G – Give up fast food. Often, this food is very fatty and filled with salt. It is not the sort of food you need to eat when you’re trying to lose weight.
H – Have a good breakfast each day with plenty of fiber and protein. The former will help your digestive system, while the latter will increase your metabolism. Both are excellent as a means to curb your appetite naturally. Protein is also beneficial for muscle development.
I – Include more spices in your food. Cinnamon, pepper, garlic, and ginger are all spices that help you burn fat. Each has its own set of benefits, of course, but they all either aid in the burning of fat or provide an increase in total metabolism. Naturally, they can’t make you thin on their own, but they can provide a little extra help.
J – Join a fitness class or group. Training with other people makes you more likely to stick to your workout routine and to strive to train harder.
K -Kill your cravings or reduce them substantially by having a good cheat meal once a week
L -Limit the amount of talking that you do in the gym. All this talking takes away from your workout. Not only do you take longer rests between sets, but you also lose focus in the workout itself.
M – Move as much as possible during your day. Even small things like painting the garage, working in the yard, or walking to the supermarket burn more calories and help you lose body fat.
N – Note all the things that you eat for a week. Leave nothing out. Don’t read your eating list until the end of the week. Then, go over it. You may find that you’re eating a lot more than you remember. You will likely be surprised by what you ate, when and how much of it. It will be easier for you to gain control over your eating once you do this.
P – Perform 3 strength workouts a week at the very least. This will increase your metabolism and tone your body.
Q – Quit believing people who tell you that you can’t be thin, look great, and get fit. These are not the sort of people you need to hang out with. Hang around positive people who see the potential in you and don’t always look on dark side of life.
R -Run on a regular basis. Running is an excellent way to lose weight. It is an intense cardio workout that has many health benefits. It doesn’t just help you to burn fat, but also improves your mood, strengthens your bones, and improves cardiovascular health.
S -Start each day with a short workout. This should be part of your morning routine before you eat breakfast. A morning workout can help you be more productive, give you energy and, once you finish it, you will know that you’ve already trained on that day and wouldn’t want to ruin it by eating bad things later on.
T – Take a few moments each day to totally relax. Do some yoga, stretching, or breathing exercises. This will help you reduce stress which is linked to abdominal fat and overeating.
U – Understand that this may take some time. Don’t lose your patience. Remember, there are plenty of ways to lose weight, but it is often best to take things gradually.
V -Visualize your dream body. Do this for a few minutes as you wake up and just before you turn in. Make your mental image as clear and detailed as possible. Visualizing your goal will have a powerful mental effect on you. It will make you more focused and goal oriented. You will work harder to achieve your desired body.
W – Walk as much as possible. I once attended a lecture in which the professor claimed that we are all walking machines. Walking is an excellent low impact cardio workout that helps you burn more fat. The more you walk, the more calories you will burn. It’s time to take advantage of every opportunity to walk. All those burned calories will add up to a big fat loss.
X – eXtreme measures should be done with caution. Don’t believe that you can lose weight very quickly without working very hard to achieve it. Fad diets are not the way for you to lose weight in the long run.
Y – You must get enough sleep each night. Sleep helps you lose weight as it gives you energy and regulates your appetite.
Z -Zero in on the bad habits that have made you overweight and start eliminating them one by one. It takes about 21 days to get rid of a bad habit and learn a healthier one. So, start with your worst habit and get rid of it. Slowly, do the same with them all.
