Prepare yourself mentally. Give yourself a reality check. Sometimes we think we can eat what ever we’d like and not exercise at all and still lose weight with the right product…WRONG!
Set your goals. You can’t succeed at anything in life unless you plan for it. Success just doesn’t come from a spur of the moment idea.
Make baby steps. Don’t try to do everything at once. Over time you will cut calories and fat, exercise more and more and eventually start slimming down.
At first, try to get at least 30 minutes of cardio everyday. For every 5 minutes of cardio, you will burn approximately 50 calories. So at 30 minutes, you will have burned around 300 calories. The ultimate goal will be for you to reach 60 minutes of cardio per day.
Strength train at least 2-3 times per week. Strength training builds muscle and the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn.
Have fun and watch the weight melt! This is not a chore, it can be fun. If working out seems dreadful, join an aerobics class. If you find a really good one, it will be energizing, motivating and very fun!Check out my blog at http://fighttheweight.blogspot.com/ and you will find more information on this process.
Research your recommended daily calorie intake for your age and weight. Once you find that number, begin to eat 500 calories less than that per day. Did you know that 1 pound = 3500 calories? Well by cutting 500 calories per day, you just lost 1 pound in a week!
