The steps we bring you today simply work. They are proven and they will not cost you a thing. In a world where every man and his dog only seems to want to sell so-called miracle products or push certain supplements at people to make a commission, we know you will enjoy today’s article as it will never cost you a penny.
The following two steps will help you to get past even the hardest block when trying to lose unwanted body fat.
Rule One – Snack Tubs.
Rule Number Two – Take A Day Off.
Most people fall off a diet at least once in their life. Heck, I have known people to do it almost monthly. There is one reason which causes this more than any other and that is the temptation of your favorite junk foods. Normally this happens when you are at your job and don’t have any food with you. The vending machine is right there, after all. We’ve been there before probably just like you have.
It’s stocked with unhealthy foods. Believe it or not, your body doesn’t actually crave that chocolate or those crisps as much as you think. You long for the quick fix satisfaction you associate with it, that’s all.
The nutritional facts of any of the foods in that vending machine are terrible, so your body is absolutely not longing for that type of food, believe us on that. It’s you. It’s more of a comfort thing than a hunger thing. You associate it with feeling happy, and you know it.
Before heading off to work pack three or four small snack tubs with protein rich snacks. Snacking on protein feeds your muscles and also has far less impact on your body’s fat storage system.
One of the main reasons we find ourselves frequenting the vending machine is the lack of any real alternative. This simple little trick is proven to return great results.
Our second tip is about taking days off from your new healthy eating regime. Whether you want to or not, it’s great for your body and your mental state to take a day off every week or two and allow yourself to eat whatever you want. This is proven to actually increase fat loss results.
If you cut out every food you used to love you will feel like your diet is a complete chore. It becomes the enemy. Mentally you start seeing it as a struggle. This is why so many people fail.
Don’t be too hard on yourself. You only want to build a better body, after all. Take a day off each week.
Sure you might consume more calories on this day than the rest of the week but you cannot do very much damage here unless you deliberately go crazy. Remember, there is a difference between a cheat day and Christmas day. In fact, enjoying your favorite snacks or junk foods on one day per week or one day every two weeks actually turns out to be a good thing for your fat loss goals because you will find you can stick to your healthy lifestyle for far longer than you have ever done before.
Simply drag and drop these two simple rules into your current diet and you will see results. So many people ask us how to lose weight in the gym and they expect an over complicated answer, but sometimes the simple solutions is all you need.
