At times you might be baffled by the fact that — despite working out on a regular basis and going for daily runs — you haven’t managed to lose much weight. The real problem might lie in your choice of a fitness routine or diet. If you haven’t achieved the desired results, it’s time to take a look at where you might be going wrong.
Experts say eating right and regular exercise will give you the body you always wanted over time. While this is true, it doesn’t mean you have to work out daily. Everyone’s body type is different, and yours might not be able to endure the strain of daily workouts. This can make you feel tired and sluggish. Make sure you schedule adequate breaks between sessions and get sufficient rest.
Perhaps someone has told you how cardio workouts helped them lose weight, and that you should try it as well. However, it's not wise to blindly follow their advice, because it might not be right for you. Cardio is useful when it comes to heart health, but you need to be aware of your limits. Don’t be afraid to try cardio; just don’t overdo it.
A friend might have suggested that you consume drinks with electrolytes during or after rigorous workout sessions. This is a misconception: These drinks contain minerals, but they have loads of sugar that ends up doing more harm than good, so steer clear.
Health enthusiasts will often discourage you from drinking water while exercising. Bad advice. When you work out, your body loses fluids continuously and it needs to be replenished accordingly. Drink plenty of water to prevent poor health.
Hunger pangs and the tendency to overeat between workouts are common pitfalls of any weight-loss program, but exercising on a regular basis doesn’t mean you can just give in. To maintain your body weight, or lose excess fat, you have to exercise and avoid ingesting empty calories.
Never work out on an empty or overly full stomach. If you do, there is a high probability that you won’t be able to finish exercising due to feeling tired and lethargic. Ideally, you should eat a couple of hours before going to the gym for a more productive session.
Weight loss should be achieved systematically. Following are some tips for doing it right:
When you hear the word “detox,” don’t assume that it’s a shortcut to losing excess pounds. A detox plan eases pressure on the liver, bowel, and kidneys, which help rid the body of toxins while supporting and boosting their performance.
Cigarettes, alcohol, milk products (apart from a half cup of unsweetened yogurt with live and active cultures each day), maple syrup, artificial sweeteners, coffee, dried fruit, grains, sugar, etc. should be avoided, so strike them from your daily routine right away.
