Almost all people try to make their tanned bodies look even more perfect in the summer. Those who regularly visit the gym are well aware of what needs to be done in order to get their body in great shape; and for everyone else, there are several rules that must be followed in order to get rid of excess fat.
Train your muscles!
Why do you need to get rid of excess fat? To make your body look healthier and more attractive, right? But you’re not just going to get rid of excess fat and lose weight. Despite the fact that cardio exercises can burn extra calories, they are completely useless for strengthening muscles. And too much cardio and not enough calories can weaken your body.
It really comes down to a simple equation. If you consume fewer calories than you burn during your daily activities, you can get rid of excess fat. This is precisely the determining factor in weight loss success. However, do not get carried away with this idea and starve yourself. You need to cut down on excess calories, but only to the level that your body needs to function healthy.
Many people tend to overestimate the number of calories they burn, so it is highly recommended that you give up guesswork and keep a diary. Record the number of calories you eat and gradually reduce it by 500 calories per day. When fighting excess calories, you must first give up calories from junk food (fast foods) and snacks in between meals.
Fats are our friends
althy fats such as animal fats, coconut oil, nuts, and avocados support optimal testosterone levels and suppress hunger, thereby increasing the effect of exercise. You can’t get great results without consuming enough healthy fats.
Avoid carbs and artificial trans fats. Carbohydrates increase insulin levels, and trans fats are known to cause heart disease.
Eat more protein
Most people find this hard to believe, but protein is also a critical factor in determining success in losing weight. Let me explain why this is happening.
First, more energy is required to digest protein, so the digestive system works harder, burning more calories. Secondly, eating foods high in protein creates a feeling of fullness, which in turn leads to a reduction in the amount of food that is consumed in between meals.
Sleep is vital for the healthy functioning of the body. Studies show that people with disrupted sleep patterns tend to develop obesity. Not getting enough sleep leads to an increase in cortisol levels, which triggers the accumulation of fat. And to top it off, a lack of sleep also negatively affects the body’s production of growth hormone.
