3 Easy Steps to Lose Weight
Made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight? These 3 Easy Steps will help you!
Step 1: Fast intermittently
By eating only 2 meals a day instead of 3 can really boost your fat loss. Studies have shown that compared to the standard 3 meals a day, consuming fewer calories in a day will stimulate fat-burning. This is partly due to increased insulin sensitivity, which allows for a greater release of fatty acids from fat cells in to the circulation for metabolism. There is also an increase in growth hormone and noradrenaline, both can accelerate fatty acid breakdown from fat stores. Short term fasting, as seen in intermittent fasting, increases your metabolic rate by up to 14%! So skip breakfast, have instead a green or herbal tea, and kick start your weight loss.
Step 2: Do lunges
A top exercise for weight loss is the lunge. The lunge is a complex movement pattern, combining big muscles of the glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings. When it comes to calorie burning, when you use your biggest muscles you burn the most calories. When done under high-load, like weights in your hands, this effect is amplified. When combined with an overall strength-training plan of 45 minutes, at least 3 times a week, your fat burning is optimized. Lunges should be performed correctly with good posture and appropriate intensity with weights. It is advised to work with a personal trainer for optimal results.
Step 3: Go ketogenic
A fantastic diet plan for weight loss and stopping carb cravings is the ketogenic diet. This diet is a high-fat, medium-protein, low-carb diet. By following in this dietary direction your body eventually produces compounds called ketones, which are an alternative fuel sources for your cells, coming from your fat stores. Ketogenic diets will reset your insulin levels to being very healthy, and will eliminate your sweet tooth cravings too. At Life Clinic, we have our very own ketogenic diet plan which clearly explains recipes and food choices to help you succeed. So what are you waiting for? Go Keto!
