Here are the most common mistakes many of us have made that sabotages our fat burning efforts. As you develop your total plan, keep these suggestions in mind.They may seem simple, but believe me, they can slip up on you especially when you are busy, stressed and have family to take care.
Mistake 1 – Skipping Breakfast and Not Eating Protein in the Morning
Do not skip breakfast thinking you’ll save calories or you are too busy. The worst reason for skipping breakfast is that you are not hungry. You are looking at maximum fat loss, improving your energy, health and quality of life here. You have to eat food to stimulate your metabolic rate. Plus, protein is necessary for hormonal balance and maintaining balanced blood chemistry. Protein will keep your muscles full and tight, instead of stringy and saggy.
You need a paradigm shift. You need to put your physical body first. Skipping breakfast triggers ravenous hunger later in the day and slows down your metabolism. A study in the Journal of Obesity Research shows that eating breakfast, which contains equal protein to low-glycemic whole-grain carbohydrate ratios every single day is a key strategy among people who average a 60-pound weight loss and have kept it off for six years. That is a fantastic study because I am a living breathing testimony of that.I follow that strategy which is exactly what my Quick Start Energy Program is based on.
Mistake 2 – Skipping Workouts
For maximum fat loss, think of this phrase: You have to Move It to Lose It! You have to train five days a week. I prefer six, but I am being nice today, letting you off with five. It takes 48 hours for the effects of your workout to begin to reverse.
You did work outs on Monday and your body jumps into a fat burning mode and it begins to burn fat and then you get busy and don’t get back to working out for two days and you start all over again. If you would work out on Tuesday, you will rev up your metabolism again and your body really begins to attack the STORED body fat without replacing it.
You want do some form of training daily to stimulate your metabolic rate and increase your fat burning potential until you reach your goal. You are worth it and you deserve to train and heal your body every day. It’s the only one you have. Honor it, revere it and give it the best care possible. Once you reach your goal you can then scale down to a maintenance program.
Mistake 3 – Starving Yourself
Slashing too many calories too fast hoping to lose more fat is a total mistake unless you are eating 6,000 calories.Cutting your calories down to a starving rate; under 1,000, unless you are on a medically supervised fast, pushes the body to conserve fat rather than burn it.
It literally shuts down your metabolism, which is your body’s natural primary calorie- and fat-burning system. In many cases it forces your body to use healthy muscle tissue for survival fuel.
Work on eating four mini balanced meals a day to keep your metabolism fired up and your energy constant. You will see greater results faster this way, plus you will have healthier digestion that is crucial for fat loss. Get that food in and keep it moving out! Don’t let it settle in your colon creating bloating, parasites and poor weight loss results.
Mistake 4 – Not Sleeping Enough
Rest and recovery is vital to fat loss and cell regeneration. Your body restores itself as you sleep. If you do not sleep at least seven hours a night, you will be sluggish, fatigued and you will begin to pre-maturely age and your body and joints will begin to break down. Establishing a regular bedtime and waking hour that allows for you that perfect seven to eight hours and then sleep in and catch up on as much sleep as you can on the weekends.
You don’t want to be a grouchy old saggy thin person do you? I thought not. You want to get your “beauty” sleep so that you can have boundless energy and look awesome in your favorite tight jeans with glowing skin.
Mistake 5 – Not Drinking Enough Fluids Every Day
You have to have your fluids. Four quarts a day, every day, seven days a week is the perfect plan for hydration that escalates fat loss.
Fluids can be in the form of water, herbal teas and non-sugary, non-carbonated drinks. Muscles are 70% water. Water transport nutrients to your muscles and keep your metabolism at a higher rate.
Water not only hydrates your cells, it detoxes your body and enhances digestion. Its benefits are endless and your fat loss will increase markedly if you are loyal to drink up daily.
Include every element I listed in my previous posts you will see fantastic results. You can lose fat, shape up and feel amazing as long as you stay dedicated to your plan. You want to do everything you can to live in such a way that you can’t help but get fit, lean and sexy! It’s all about your attitude. Love your life, work your plan and live with energy and gratitude. When you have a positive attitude you will surely live a life of adventure and abundance. Make your fat loss goal a journey of learning, improving and empowering yourself.
