When it comes to losing any kind of weight, there are
several factors to consider. One is the exercise program you choose and another
is your meal plan. You will need to adhere to both these aspects in order for
your fat loss goals to be reached, but for now we’ll focus on the meal plan.
Losing weight relies on several things to be a success.
Exercise is an important part of that. If you fail to find and stick to aerobic
and strength training exercises, your meal plan will be ineffective because you
aren’t including the other crucial part.
A proper fat loss meal plan will focus on eliminating fats
and replacing them with vitamins, minerals, proteins and other nutrients.
Depending on the diet you already adhere to, this may be a drastic change for
you. If this is the case you’ll want to remind yourself on a daily basis that
the new meal plan along with the exercise will help you to lose the fat you
don’t want and replace it with the muscle you do. You can begin doing this by
eating fruits, vegetables and lean meats. This will start you down the path to a
healthier diet. Cut out all saturated fats and limit your intake of fatty foods.
Carbs are great for strength training but too many of them
will result in weight gain. If this weight comes in the form of muscle mass, you
are okay but if it turns to fat you are back at square one. Instead, limit your
carbs and of course definitely watch your sugar intake. It’s amazing how many
little things you can cut out of your diet that will make a big difference. For
example, using only one sugar in your morning coffee instead of two is a small
concession to make, especially when you are talking about fat loss. It may not
seem like much at first, but over a period of time it will really add up and
make a difference.
Drink plenty of water as well as some juices. Juices do
contain sugar so watch your intake. Water, on the other hand is very healthy for
you and will make you feel less hungry which can come in handy when it isn’t
time to eat.
Eat five to six small meals a day instead of three larger
ones. This will help you when strength training and will allow your body to
properly absorb and use the nutrients instead of storing foods and turning them
to unwanted fat. Also, try to eat at or around the same time every day. While
this may be difficult at best, it is recommended in order to create yet more
consistency which is an important part of the fat loss endeavor. It also helps
with digestion and allows your body to be on a schedule. This predictability
will help you achieve your desired results by getting your body used to
