I’ve decided to quickly discuss 5 important weight loss topics that I feel will benefit you in your journey to drop unwanted fat. In fact, this article will give a brief breakdown of each topic, and lead you to in-depth information that you can use to make considerable progress on your weight loss journey.
After writing over 150 health & fitness articles, I’ve come to realize that there are certain topics that come up again and again. I’ll briefly touch on each of these below, and guide you to a wealth of information that should certainly help you.
1 – Eating At A Calorie Deficit
This is without question the topic I’ve covered most in all of my writing. This seems to be something people understand the general concept of. However, it also seems to very confusing to many.
In short, eating at a calorie deficit will help you lose weight far more effectively than following a fad diet. Unfortunately, traditional diets are filled with so many rules and restrictions, that they’re not sustainable in the long run. So people ultimately give up, or the weight comes back on down the road.
When you eat at a reasonable calorie deficit, it’s a very different situation, because it fits into your lifestyle seamlessly. Still, it can be confusing for many, so these articles should help you.
This link will teach you step by step how to calculate a calorie deficit for yourself. When followed, you should lose approximately 4 – 5 pounds per month. If you have more than 20 pounds of fat to lose, then the calculation you set up will actually be a bit more aggressive, meaning more fat loss.
One of the issues people encounter is that it can be overwhelming to figure out how to accurately track calories. This article will show you step by step how to track them seamlessly using two very powerful tools that I use every single day
2 – Walking 10,000 Steps Daily
I’ve written plenty about the benefits of walking because it was a major game-changer in my life, when I watched its fat blasting benefits. In only a few short months, it helped me to strip off 3% body fat and lose 15 pounds, which is something I never achieved, even after years of doing traditional cardio workouts. Now, this happened in combination with eating at a calorie deficit from the section above.
Walking 10,000 steps a day burns about 400 – 500 calories each time you do it. Every single step you take counts, which includes walking to the mailbox, or through the grocery store. Making the swap from intense cardio 6 days a week to simply walking daily made a huge change in my physique that I wasn’t expecting.
There are so many benefits to walking that we often seem to neglect. This article will explain in depth why it’s actually better for you at burning fat than other forms of cardio that we’ve been doing for years.
This article gives a calculation you can input for your current weight and height to determine how many calories you’ll personally burn walking 10,000 steps a day.
This article shares some simple ways you can get 10,000 steps in per day. I’ve found that I get about 1,000 – 2,000 steps in daily without even trying. That includes random walking I do around the house, and walking to and from my car. There are other simple ways to get those steps in which this article explains in detail.
3 – Intermittent Fasting
Intermittent fasting has incredible fat-burning benefits, but many people seem to be confused as to how it can help. First of all, to make it clear, intermittent fasting is NOT a diet. It’s simply a matter of changing the time of day that you eat your meals. It’s really that simple.
While that concept is simple, it’s also very powerful. So these articles below will break down why intermittent fasting is such a great way to help you lose weight.
If you’re very new to the concept of intermittent fasting, this article breaks down what it is and what you can expect to do when following it, as well as the fat burning benefits it has on your body.
Here you’ll learn 5 fantastic benefits of intermittent fasting, from its fat burning effects to why it allows you to enjoy your favorite foods again. It eliminates the need for traditional dieting, and also has the ability to control binge eating, which is what it personally did for me.
If you’d like to get an idea of what kinds of meals you could eat and what a daily schedule of intermittent fasting looks like, this article will break that all down for you. The meals and schedule are pulled directly from MyNetDiary, the app I use to track my daily calories and steps.
4 – Resistance Training
Since the pandemic hit, I’ve been following a resistance training program that completely changed my life. After years of following various Beachbody programs, working out at the gym, and even going Kickboxing and Orange Theory classes, I got into the best shape of my life when the entire world was locked inside.
A proper resistance training program should include a workout schedule and eating plan that should take you by the hand and lead you from A to Z so you know exactly how and what to eat, based on your goals, every step of the way. You should also have no questions as to what exercises you should be doing, and when.
This calisthenics workout program changed my life. I lost 15 pounds of pure fat, and dropped from a 32 to a 30-inch waist within a few months. What’s more is that I was packing on lean muscle all at the same time. It sometimes blows my mind how quickly this happened when I tried for years to make this a reality, following so many other workout methods and diets.
This program follows the same core philosophies of the program I personally follow, but it’s designed specifically for women.
5 – Staying Motivated & Determined
This is probably one of the toughest topics to write about because it’s not easy to teach motivation and discipline. It’s something that must come from within ourselves. Weight loss is simple indeed, but it’s not easy. There are internal battles we fight every single day when it comes to achieving our desired physique.
These are tips that worked for me when it came to losing unwanted fat. The reason it happened so seamlessly during the pandemic is that I let go of many previous beliefs about weight loss.
It’s a tough world we’re in when we set off to lose weight. There are so many conflicting thoughts and emotions on our journey that it can be hard to maintain a healthy body image. This article will break down some ways to stay positive on your weight loss journey.
