Why It’s Not Possible To Get Into Shape Overnight

Overnight SuccessThere are many research studies out there which actually prove that it is extremely rare for a person to ever be able to lose large sums of weight in an instant.

As you will see with most weight loss success stories out there, the results only came about after the person committed fully to putting in the work every single day.

If you are searching the internet in hope to find some instant results then believe me you will be in for some disappointment.

That disappointment people experience is the reason why most never succeed in actually losing weight.

For some odd reason we have been brought up as a nation to think that we are entitled to certain things. We somehow feel like we deserve to get overnight results without actually putting in the effort.

You see if you are serious about losing weight then you are going to have to develop the habits of hard work and patience.

That doesn’t mean you have to work hard for working hard sake. You need to develop the attitude of working smart on the right things. But the problem is that most people are not even prepared to do this.

The truth is that most of the conventional diet and exercise schemes are just leading people down the wrong direction.

Everywhere you go, you are bombarded with people telling you that it is possible to lose weight instantly.

But over the long term this is just causing people to head down the wrong path which will lead to them getting terrible results and giving up.

If you really want to get the fastest weight loss results then the best thing that you are ever going to do, is actually follow a plan that focuses on you eating whole and natural foods while at the same time doing lots and lots of exercise.

The great thing about losing weight through eating right and exercising properly is that you will end up being full of energy, and you won’t end the day with you feeling famished. You even get to eat things most conventional diets tell you to stay away from and those include things like steaks, and fried eggs!

The great thing is that when you are giving your body exactly what it needs and wants to stay healthy you will begin to see the weight rapidly drop off your body!

But it is important to remain with this diet for good if you want to see results. This is why you have to look toward getting on a diet that you will be on for the rest of your life and not just for a couple of months.

While many people will literally lose tons of weight when they first get on eating a healthy diet that is full of vegetables and lean meats, the truth is no two people are the same.

There will be a few of you that don’t see an immediate result.

I’ve personally seen that the vast majority of people that eat clean and train regularly, will see truly exceptional changes in terms of body composition but again there are always those few oddballs.

But you should never give up, regardless of how long it takes you to get into great health.

Just keep focusing on the vision, and keep putting in the work and believe me one day you will end up in incredible shape.

While eating healthy and training regularly really don’t require that much effort to get into as a way of life you need to understand that you will probably hit a weight loss plateau, sooner or later.

But at this time you need to keep reminding yourself that weight loss is a long journey and that you are not going to lose weight overnight. That you should keep plowing forward because you will see results if you do.

By keeping your eye on the ball you are going to be able to appreciate and notice the times when you feel down and then realize that you need to keep focused and keep doing the work because that is the only way to really get the results that you are after in the long term. Never give in because then you will never be able to get into the shape you want to get into.

If you are already in great shape then know that if you get off the track and eat a few donuts here and there then not all hope is lost.

But as soon as you come to realize that you have slipped off the track, you need to push yourself back on and put in the work.

While it can be hard to lose weight in this day and age that we live in because of all the temptations out there, it is still possible if you focus on what matters (diet and exercise) and keep putting in the hard work.

Your Guide To The Latest Weight Loss Shortcut

Weight Loss ShortcutImagine we lived in a world where if you wanted to lose 30 pounds all you would need to do is walk up to your doctor’s clinic, read a magazine for 10 minutes, while your doctor points a device which shoots out a laser towards your back… then you just stroll out having just spent thousands of pounds in the process.

If you had the money to spare and a beer belly to get rid of, would you opt for such a procedure?

Would you ever consider this sort of weight loss shortcut to get results?

With the procedure sounding so simple and effective it would be hard for most people to say no.

You might be surprised but it seems that we are getting closer and closer to that reality. There are two organisations out there that go by the name of Zeltiq Aesthetics and Erchonia Medical, both of which are based in the USA, who have developed a sort of lazier pointer that reportedly zaps pockets of fat. They are claiming real results quickly, which were previously only seen offered by people who sold weight loss gimmicks.

These two companies are claiming that their product offers people the chance to lose weight in any area of the body, by simply using lasers that are pointed to the fat. This causes all the fat in that area to come out of the cells, into the lymphatic system, where the body will be able to use the fat as a source of energy.

While it may seem great on the surface you need to realize that you won’t see immediate results with this technique.

It takes about 2 months for the whole process to take effect on the body.

Tests that were carried out showed that the average person lost about 3.5 inches over a period of 2 months.

So while it may not be the instant fat loss solution that you were hoping for, it certainly seems to produce real results and definitely blows away some of the most popular weight loss scams out there.

I love a good shortcut that actually produces the results you were looking for without compromising the quality of the journey or the process that you used to get there.

So is this laser fat loss tech really a valid shortcut to help you lose weight?

Truth be told, it is a shortcut but only if fat is the only thing that you want to lose.

But in terms of a shortcut that improves the health and overall quality of your life, I wouldn’t say that this solution will help you much.

To be honest, you’re goal shouldn’t just be to lose weight but to take those actions that will help you live the healthiest possible life. I would avoid all those things that offer you fast results without taking you through the journey of getting sustainable long term results.

If these laser products actually get the results that they claim to get, the issue is that ultimately they are not going to be helping you get to the underlying issues that are causing your weight gain. You may in fact lose weight initially but eventually you will just gain it on again.

Losing weight is more than just losing a few pounds here and there. While learning how to lose belly fat in a week is a great start you need to develop a more longer term vision to get great results.

Doing it the more traditional way by eating right and exercising regularly will help your overall health improve. You will see an increase in lean muscle mass, your organs will be healthier, you will have much higher energy levels, and you will be a lot more sensitive to insulin.

It is extremely doubtful that you will experience the same sort of benefits from having laser pointed at you. Not only will it cost you a fortune, but you will more than likely end up putting the weight that you’ve lost right back on.

The only way to lose weight and keep it off is to do it the old fashioned way, through hard work and dedication.

If you can literally get rid of your excess fat without making any changes to their lifestyle, then what is actually preventing people from continuing their unhealthy diet habits and way of life?

It would be extremely interesting to see how this laser treatment would actually fare against other fat loss procedures out there such as bariatric surgery, which is often used to help people who are morbidly obese.

Keep in mind that people only go under the knife to get Bariatric surgery to overcome obesity in order to prevent some chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension.

There is a lot of research which says that while it is a high risk procedure it certainly seems to be quite effective. Ultimately this surgery will help people lose weight and reduce the chances that they get any serious disease.

The laser procedure is extremely unlikely to do this and here are some of the reasons why I believe this to be true:

Bariatric surgery is just one half of the equation. In order for the patient to see long lasting results, they will have to get on a healthy diet that is full of fresh, natural foods.

Ultimately this will lead to you seeing not only the weight drop off but also see an improvement in the condition of the individuals overall health.

Ultimately this kind of laser treatment while good at giving you initial results, isn’t worth trusting if you want long lasting results that not only help to keep off the fat, but also help to improve the quality of your life.

Believe me, I’ve got nothing against seeing advancements in technology.

So whether or not this laser technology improves with time, we will have to see.

But keep in mind that there is nothing more effective and long lasting when it comes to losing weight, than eating the right foods and exercising on a consistent basis.

You will have to put in some real hard work, but believe me it will be more than worth it down the line!

Overcoming The Emotional Connection Toward Junk Food

Junk FoodGetting over junk food is the biggest issue that most people have and what prevents them from jumping on board a healthy way of life.

Most people understand and appreciate the healthy concepts of eating right and exercising regularly. They really want to jump on board this way of life in order that they may be able to improve the quality of their life and ultimately get into great shape.

Who doesn’t love the concept of having an amazing amount of energy from the moment they wake up, to the idea of being able to eat fresh organic meat.

But then of course, the breaking point for most people is where they ask… what about coke or whatever other piece of junk food they absolutely love.

You can have all the knowledge in the world but it will be to no avail, if you aren’t able to get over the idea of not eating junk foods. Isn’t it a little odd how powerful these cravings for junk food are, so much so that they completely destroy any chance of you getting on the healthy road and way of life.

Is that single doughnut so tasty that it can completely hamper the quality of a person’s life and stop him from living a healthy way of existence?

Many people are used to saying ‘I’d love to live a healthy life but I could never give up my breakfast cereal.’ Well, this sort of response has really made me think deep about the mental power of eating junk foods.

Have you ever wondered why the best foods that people mention they’ve eaten usually tend to be junk foods?

The vast majority of people out there have some sort of deep love for one type of junk food or other.

It’s like we sort of emotionally attach ourselves to the food item in question.

There are also many other reasons why people love junk foods, some include the fact that they are very easily available, convenient to eat, and pretty cheap on most occasions.

A lot of the times the foods that we are attached to, are foods that we have grown up with and therefore we have become used to eating regularly.

Then there are some other powerful influences on our desire to eat unhealthy foods, these include our ethnic, family or community backgrounds on top of all the marketing and advertising that we are bombarded with on a daily basis. Finally there is the issue of taste.

I have told you before and you will notice it once you begin to eat healthy on a regular basis and that is the fact that most junk foods taste pretty much the same once you allow your taste buds to come back to life. This of course is only going to become noticeable when you begin to eat healthy and nutritious foods on a regular basis.

So how come we find, that some foods are a lot easier to give up than certain other foods?

Imagine tomorrow you woke up and were told that in order to live a healthy way of life you must avoid eating cucumbers. I really can’t imagine anyone really being bothered about it to the level that they will feel that it will stop them from living a healthy life.

Then how come the idea of giving up things like coke, or breakfast cereal is a lot harder. Why do we get anxious about the idea of getting rid of junk foods?

You will be amazed to know that your sense of taste is developed a lot earlier than you may initially think.

There are plenty of research studies which have found that the diet of a mother heavily influences the taste senses of a child.

The conclusions of many researchers as to why this happens is to help a child understand and know what tastes are safe for them. Ultimately it’s all about survival, and this process will help your child appreciate the flavors that will help them survive out in the world.

If you happen to come from a family whose diet was mainly rice then you will have developed a good taste for it quite early on.

The fact is that as human beings we associate certain memories around food. So if you had many good times as a child surrounding a specific type of food, then you will be more emotionally attached to it as you grow older.

One of the biggest factors that cause a sort of emotional connection to food, is that of holidays. But it is possible with any sort of event or occasion.

Do you happen to remember cooking something special with your parents of grandparents? Do you have strong vivid memories of going to a specific type of restaurant when you were younger?

Do you have a good memory of some time when you were first going out with your partner which still influences how you happen to spend time together today?

The problem with these sorts of emotional connections with food, is the fact that it can hinder your progress to live a health lifestyle, where you mostly eat fresh and nutritious foods.

Even if you are able to resist the temptation, you will never be able to truly enjoy healthy foods, because you will constantly be thinking about the junk foods of your past.

The past is one thing, but an even greater battle is the temptations of the present.

There have been many research studies which prove that the mental images that we play in our minds about certain foods play a massive role in the cravings we have for particular foods out there.

Have you ever seen an ad for food and then you suddenly feel like eating it? This may even be true if you don’t even touch that food! Those guys who created the ads have a wonderful way of actually convincing you that you need that food now!

Then the way we feel in any given moment also influences what we happen to eat. Often times when we are feeling down we will engage in emotional eating which can result in us gorging great portions of junk foods.

Eating a lot of carb heavy foods can give us a little bit of a high, but of course with every high there will come a crash… this up and down feeling can really become addictive.

The truth is and this is backed up by many research studies that when we are stressed out we naturally move toward wanting to eat junk foods.

Statistic shows that men usually go toward eating warm and calorie rich foods, whereas women prefer to put their hands on sweets etc.

It has also been noted that a younger person is more likely to eat snack foods rather than full on unhealthy meals.

From various different research methods out there it has been noted that the best technique for people to use when it comes to overcoming their desire to eat junk foods is to just keep it away from them. Make sure that your environment is free from any sort of temptation and you are less likely to gorge on bad, unhealthy foods.

The harder you make it to get access to a particular type of junk food you like, the less likely it is that you will put in the effort to actually get it.

You also need to work to get rid of those pleasant associations you have with junk foods. That means if you watch TV where there are countless ad’s that bombard you to eat junk foods, then just avoid watching TV on those nights when you are feeling particularly stressed out.

Another great tactic you could implement to overcome your desire to eat junk, could be to actually go on a little walk.

If you still seem to be having issues with food then perhaps you are experiencing some sort of eating disorder, and it could mean that you need to get yourself checked out by a professional counselor.

There have also been some research studies carried out which suggest that acupuncture can be extremely effective to help those people who are battling with constant cravings for junk foods.

Ultimately you need to appreciate the fact that your favorite foods are nothing but a small moment of pleasure, and perhaps a link to a happy memory in the distant past.

But you also need to remember that your life without that piece of junk is probably far more energetic, where you experience less health issues and therefore you get more out of every single moment that you have.

You need to realize that your life is probably more meaningful and filled with higher levels of pleasure because you don’t eat junk. Those taste buds you have, are just a minor part of your whole experience.

What foods would your body really like to have inside it? That is the question you need to ask yourself.

If you really want to live a healthy way of life you need to start paying attention to your body more, and giving it what it actually deserves. That is of course if you want to experience a healthy way of life.

Do you have any other tips or suggestions on how you can get over this emotional connection people have with junk foods? If you want to see more tactics to help you overcome this emotional connection to junk food then I’d recommend that you check out the fat loss factor.

How To Overcome The Obsession With Weighing Scales

Weighing ScalesThe truth is practically every house in America will have a weighing scale in it. But every household will treat them differently.

There are some folk out there that are literally scared of the weighing scale, to the point where they hide them in the bathroom closet.

These people will occasionally force themselves to get the scale out but most of the time they try to ignore it as best as they can, trying to pretend that it doesn’t exist.

But then there are other people out there that act like crack addicts in terms of their relationship with the scale. They literally are addicted to using it.

These people will literally weigh themselves at least once a day or if they are really extreme, then they will weigh themselves after every meal or perhaps after they workout. Each time they get on, they are hoping they will have made some sort of progress.

Now, while there is nothing wrong with the scale itself, these two extremes just cause a lot of unneeded pain in people’s lives.

It really is a great tool for giving people some sort of idea what they weigh. But there is a difference between using it as a measure of progress here and there, to actually obsessing over it.

If we focus too much on the scales then most of us will stop focusing on what is really important and that is to eat correctly and exercise regularly.

Personally I’ve stopped using a scale a long time ago. It’s just something that I feel a person doesn’t need. Especially since following the fat loss factor you will find that you will never need it.

If we pay too much attention to the daily changes that the scale shows us then we lose sight of what the real goal of healthy eating actually is, and that is to ultimately lead a long and healthy life that is full of joy and happiness.

Believe me, while it may seem great to obsess over the weighing scale, the truth is that you are probably just slowing down the progress that you actually make.

Of course there isn’t anything really wrong with using a scale, even if you happen to use it every single day of your life… just know when you are getting obsessed over it.

There are some of you out there that use things like a bathroom scale or a food journal to make sure that you remain on the right track and that you are constantly focused on the results that you are trying to achieve.

If you’re the sort of person that wants to lose fat while at the same time maintain muscle mass then keeping track of the progress that you are making will help you get the results that you want.

Just remember that there is a difference between tracking progress and getting overly obsessive about the scale.

Your body is constantly carrying out a variety of different processes so it is perfectly normal for it to experience fluctuations in weight.

You should not be surprised if you see your weight change on a day to day basis even by a few pounds. This is often caused by your body either keeping water or getting rid of it and various other processes.

That little number on the scale will not give you an accurate picture of what is going on with your body, so it is wise not to rely on it too much.

You also need to stop thinking in terms of the phrase ‘weight loss’ as it is far too vague. What does this term really mean?

The truth is that muscle actually weighs a lot more that fat, but the scale that you measure yourself on can’t tell you the difference.

The weighing scale literally takes every component of your body and then spits out a single, total number.

Looking at that number on the weighing scale you should realize that it is giving you the sum total of every part of your body and what it weighs.

That’s all that number really means. So ultimately it can’t tell you how much lean muscle mass you have on your person, neither can it tell you how much fat you carry.

The scale may be telling you that you’re losing weight, but what’s the point if all that weight is just muscle mass?

Another big issue is that people often set random weight loss goals.

A person may say they want to lose 60 pounds and then get completely obsessed about doing whatever it takes to reach this specific goal.

These kinds of goals eventually lead to a person starving themselves, doing excessive cardio and vomiting after meals, all in the hope to reach this target they have set themselves. Ultimately they end up caring little about whether they are damaging their health or not.

You really don’t want to get nuts over a little number. Instead you should focus more on trying to listen to your body, and see what it says. If you focus on eating right and exercising regularly, you will find that your body will lose all the fat that you need to lose to get into amazing shape.

Eating natural, healthy whole foods is the key to actually losing fat and maintaining muscle mass. So don’t try to mess about with shortcuts because this will inevitably lead to the path of you doing silly things to reach your goals.

The less you obsess over the number that the scale gives you the better you are going to end up in terms of health and weight loss.

You really are wasting a lot of time and energy faffing about with a weighing scale!

On top of that you are more than likely causing your health to deteriorate over time, because of all the stress that is associated with getting yourself weighed. This can ultimately lead you to having a lot of serious issues with food which can cause you to gain or lose an unnatural amount of weight.

Ultimately you should try your level best to focus on the things that matter the most and those are living a healthy, happy life where you sleep well and eat right (making sure that you avoid junk foods) while exercising on a consistent basis. Do these things and you will never need to touch the scale again.

Top Reasons Why You’re Not Shedding Excess Body Fat

Weight Loss ScalesThe truth is that the simple idea of calorie counting isn’t the only factor that actually contributes to a person losing excess fat in a healthy and safe manner.

Neither it is only dependent on things like diet and exercise. You have to look at it as an overall picture. There are many different factors all of which work together to help a person to lose weight and get into the best health of their lives.

On top of that your attitude to losing weight is also extremely important. How you feel in any given moment will influence the actions that you take on a day to day basis. So it is really important that you take the time to actually develop good habits and remove all the terrible habits that are preventing you from seeing amazing results. You also need to stop trying to find a way on how to lose belly fat in a week, instead focus more of your time and energy on the long term results.

You really need to create an environment that is conducive to your weight loss goals and aspirations.

1. You Assume You’re Eating Healthy, But You’re Really Not

Are you on a diet that promotes eating a lot of different so called healthy products? Believe me the focus of any solid diet should be healthy and nutritious foods.

Are you drinking cans of diet coke, plates of so called healthy noodles, and loaves upon loaves of bread.

If you are then you are not on the path to losing weight but rather you’re on the path of consuming consuming empty calories that will make your fat.

You need to stop relying on these food labels and instead try to focus as much time and effort into eating real foods that are good for you and will actually contribute to you losing weight.

2. You’re Constantly Stressed Out

Believe me stressing out is not a good thing to do if you want to lose weight.

Regardless of what sort of stress you may be experiencing, whether it be financial or emotional you need to appreciate that your body doesn’t know the difference.

All stress does is cause your body to produce more cortisol which is the fight or flight hormone. This hormone will eat away at your muscles, increase insulin resistance and actually push your body to store more fat.

Believe me stress over 200,000 years ago may have been useful to humans because it literally helped them escape danger and live longer lives but the reality is quite different today.

Getting stressed over a simple traffic jam causes havoc on your body which isn’t good if you want to lose weight.

All you need to do is take a little step back and realize that most of the things that you are getting stressed over, really don’t matter in the long run. So just relax a little and start to enjoy your body getting rid of the excess fat you are holding onto.

3. Watch The Amount Of Carbs You Eat

Believe me you really need to keep a watch out for the amount of carbs that you consume on a day to day basis, especially if you want to lose weight. Cut out all the processed foods and if you want to lose weight that much faster I would also avoid things like fruit.

4. You’re Building Up Muscle Mass

Believe me you should never rely on the scales to give you a true picture of what is going on. Yes, while the scales can be great for giving you a broad picture of what is happening to your body in terms of weight they don’t give you the details such as exactly how much muscle you are adding to your frame.

When you are eating correctly it will cause your body to lose a lot of fat but if you’re working out on a regular basis then this will also result in your muscle mass growing.

If you feel great about your new way of life but don’t see any sort of movement on the scales then it is likely that you are losing fat but at the same time putting on some muscle mass.

5. You Don’t Exercise Enough

Are you walking at least 5 hours a week?

Believe me walking at a brisk pace is something that you are going to want to do more often if you really want to shed the fat that is on your body. The great thing about walking at around 75% of your max heart rate is that it will burn fat really fast.

If you are not walking enough then be sure to crank it up and believe me you will begin to see exceptional results.

6. You’re Running Far Too Much On The Treadmill

Yes, while walking at a brisk pace is great for you there is such a thing as doing too much of a good thing, which never leads to great results.

If you start to engage in activity that runs your heart over 75% of its max rate, then you will begin to burn glycogen reserves.

All this sugar that is lost will mean that your body will start to crave more sugars to replace all that it has lost, so you end up eating vast quantities of foods that are terrible for your health.

Believe me you don’t want to keep this up for very long because in the long term you will end up getting fat, losing muscle mass, getting stressed which will result in the hormone cortisol to be released and you will have destroyed any results you have achieved thus far.

7. You Still Haven’t Got On Board Fasting

Yes, every person reacts differently to fasting and your results will vary but the truth is that fasting is a wonderful way to really get over a weight loss plateau in record time.

Be sure that you’re eating healthy and nutritious foods and really start out small. Perhaps you can miss out breakfast tomorrow and then eat a late lunch. If you were comfortable getting around this then perhaps next time around you can skip out on breakfast and lunch.

Be sure to take baby steps as this will increase the chance that you are successful.

Believe me, as your body gets used to you fasting on an occasional basis, you will begin to not even notice that you have gone for hours without food.

8. You’re Eating Way Too Much Food

Believe me eating healthy isn’t going to result in all that excess fat disappearing overnight. While eating healthy is a great way to lose a lot of weight know that you still need to keep the amount of calories in check, especially once you have reached the weight you are happy with.

When you get right down to those last few pounds you will find that all the things that were working for you thus far will probably not work anymore.

If doing what you’ve been doing so far isn’t helping you get rid of those last few pounds, then it might be time to really tighten up those calories.

If you are eating really well but still are not losing the little weight you have left then it may be a sign that you are just eating too much.

So I hope that these top reasons for you not being able to budge the fat have helped to shine some light on what the exact reason may be, and what you can do to hopefully move forward and ultimately get into the best shape of your life.

The Most Common Things You Are Doing To Prevent Weight Loss

Weight Loss PreventionThe truth is that once you lose some good amount of weight, friends and family will inevitably come to you for some advice wondering how on earth you lost weight and how they can do the same. In those moments you are going to be able to give them advice, and a few suggestions to get them on the right path to losing weight as well.

You know that person that works with you, who is constantly drinking cans of coke… all you need to tell him when he eventually comes to you for advice is to cut the coke out and he will lose a lot of weight.

For that one friend who seems to eat McDonald’s three times a day, all you need to tell her is to get active, drink more water and to stop eating fast foods!

These are extremely simple solutions to help those that want to get into shape really fast.

But while you may have lost a lot of weight yourself you may have come to a point where you have gone a few weeks in and not lost a pound of excess fat. You haven’t changed anything in terms of your new way of life but still, you are not shedding any fat?

Well, there are many reasons why you may have hit this weight loss plateau, and often times it’s because of your own doing.

Here are some of the common factors that result in a person’s weight loss coming to a halt:

1. You Waste Too Much Time Trying To Get Your Diet Perfect

Yes, if you happen to be allergic to either nuts, gluten or dairy then it makes sense why you would fuss over certain things that would make you extremely ill. Or perhaps your 6 months pregnant and you’re at a restaurant that serves up sushi… I wouldn’t look at you funny for wanting to exactly where that fish came from and how fresh it was.

But if you’re just an ordinary guy or girl looking to lose weight and get into the best shape of their life and have no real issues in terms of being allergic to certain foods then I really wouldn’t worry and get so worked up about exactly what is in every single meal that you consume. Trust me if you ever want to shed those last few pounds of fat you need to stop getting stressed out so much.

Trying to get your diet perfect will end in you failing, which will ultimately cause you to gain more weight.

2. You’re Not Taking Care Of Your Overall Health

Yes, while eating right is the most important factor when it comes to losing weight and getting into great shape, know that there are many other smaller elements that you need to get right in order to lose weight that much faster and to really get into the best health of your life.

You need to make sure that along with your diet, you are also working out on a regular basis, getting a good night’s rest every night, and making time to relax and have fun. If you get all these components right then there is no way that you are not going to be able to get into the best health of your life.

Believe me when I hit upon a weight loss plateau on my own journey it was because I was focusing far too much on just one area and that was to get my diet right. That worked for a while but in order to move forward and lose the remaining fat that was on my body, I had to improve my overall health.

3. You Keep changing Your Diet and Exercise Routine

The problem with living in the computer age is the fact that we all have access to far too much information. Often times this is great, but a lot of the times it can just cause information overload, because we are constantly trying to take in way too much information. The stream of information just never ends.

The truth is that there are already millions upon millions of health blogs out there with new ones coming out every single day all teaching a slightly different methodology on how to lose weight. On top of that there are always new research studies that are being released every single day, adding to our never ending inventory of weight loss information.

So what most people do is instead of experimenting themselves they just hop online and see what 1000 other people have done and have learnt from their experiences.

Believe me while having access to so much information is truly amazing, the reality is that it just confuses most of us and leads us to not do anything. The best thing to do is to try one thing and stick to it for a few weeks and analyze the results you have got then move forward from there. Trial and error is your greatest teacher.

So there you have it my friends all the information that you will need on the most common reasons why people end up getting into weight loss plateau’s and how to get out of them fast!

Simple Ways To Reduce Calories

Reduce CaloriesYou will come to realize the moment you begin to lose a lot of weight down the road, is the fact that the most important aspect of losing weight is not how much you put in your stomach, but what you put in your stomach. But of course there is some importance to how much you put in your stomach, especially when you are trying to lose weight.

While a nice grass fed steak is one of the best sources of food that you can put into your stomach, the truth is that you shouldn’t be eating it three times a day!

Keeping a balance on the amount of food that you consume is the key to not only losing weight and getting into great shape, but to also help you get into amazing overall health.

That is the most wonderful thing about eating healthy and nutritious foods every single day. Not only do you get to eat foods that taste amazing, but they also help you stay full and feel good.

If you’ve been following the diet principles as laid out in the Fat Loss Factor guidebook, then you will have covered exactly what you need to eat, and ultimately you will be eating to really give your body exactly what it has been designed to eat in the first place.

Yet there may be some of you out there that have a little muffin top or beer belly that you are going to want to get rid of. For you guys knowing how much to eat in a day is important.

So to give you an example of the grass fed steak. While it is really great for your health and will help you get all the nutrients that you need in a meal, you only ever need a few ounces of it at a time.

Yes, eating healthy is extremely important but if you are serious about shedding the excess fat then it is important that you cut down the calories.

Here are some simple tips you can implement to cut the amount of calories that you consume in any given day:

1. Reduce The Meat Portions By Half

Yes, while getting in a good amount of protein every single day is essential, more often than not we end up eating a little too much meat.

This rule is especially true when you head out to eat at a restaurant. You will have also noticed that the portion sizes of meat are really big these days, even the ones that you find down at the supermarket.

The main emphasis should be on the quality and taste of the meat and not the amount you are eating.

2. Drop The Excess Toppings

Everyday for lunch I love to have a really big salad that is stuffed full of different ingredients.

Its best to include toppings such really low calorie vegetables and  a little bit protein on top of that, instead of adding fried, calorie rich toppings that most people are used to consuming.

If you want to lose weight quickly then you should stack your salads with vegetables and not things like cheeses and nuts.

3. Stop Eating Starchy Vegetables

If you are already in the best shape of your life then eating things like sweet potatoes and yams are absolutely okay.

However, if you are looking to lose weight then you need to stop eating these types of foods because they are quite rich in calories in comparison to simple vegetables.

4. Reduce The Amount of Legumes You Eat

The great thing about legumes such as peas, chickpeas and kidney beans is the fact that they contain plenty of healthy vitamins and fibre.

On top of that they are a rich source of protein and contain some really healthy fats, but you need to realize that they are extremely calorie rich.

So if you are absolutely serious about losing weight then I’d recommend that you avoid these legumes or at least cut the portion size in half.

5. Stick To Eating 1 Snack a Day

Snacks these days can often contain the same amount of calories as a small meal, especially when you are snacking on things like cheese and nuts.

Yes, you can grab a few pieces but anymore and you will literally be eating a meals worth of calories. Just stop snacking and focus on eating real meals.

6. Replace All Fruit With Vegetables

The thing about fruits is that they contain a lot of sugars, which is all fine and dandy when you consume them in small amounts. But the reality is that fruits contain a lot more calories than vegetables which is why if you are looking to lose weight you are going to want to replace all the fruit with your favorite vegetables.

7. Use Less Oil When Cooking Food

Yes, you are probably used to pouring plenty of oil into the pan when you are cooking but if you want to lose weight then you should reduce it to only a tablespoon of oil for every meal you make.

As your body adjusts to the new way of eating, you will be able to add more and more oil because your metabolism will be at an all time high. But until then stick to lower amounts of oil.

8. Stick To Drinking Water

Believe me you really want to make sure that you never drink your calories because that is a sure fire way to just gain weight. If you really want to lose weight you need to drink water and stick to that.

You should also limit the amount of alcohol, dairy and fruit juices that you drink in any given day.
