How can i lose weight fast
The majority of us wants to achieve this in the shortest amount of time but is this possible to even think of? So let us cover some aspects of it first then you will understand how and what to do after reading this article. edit.
The number one on the top list is desire. If you don't have a desire to lose weight then there can't be any form of motivation to lose weight! Start by setting a goal for both short and long term, say for example, the short term goal is to have your blood pressure drop in the healthy zone and the long term is to feel great and move without pain doing your daily activities. This will set you up taking one day at a time but without realising it, you are slowly changing your habits which becomes part of you. Not working out will then after feel wrong and you will have all the guilt trip by missing the workout till you drop everything and hit the workout wherever it is.
We don't think about it much, but once you know this you can't un-know this fact. Sugar is naturally found in most foods which includes vegetables, fruits, grains, breads and even milk. Lactose is a form of sugar in dairy milk which not many know or realise until you actually know. So if sugar is everywhere in either the table form that we know of and in foods other than proteins which comes mainly from meat, how do we cut sugar out then?! Balance. Knowing the source of the sugar if it's refined or naturally occurring and if it's high in glycimic index and son on will make you have less crashes throughout your days. The sugar spikes that gives us a kick to fuel our day is what makes one gain body fat and which may manifest into a health conditions such as diabetes etc. Take into consideration to include fats that are healthy into your daily intake such as olive/ coconut oil, avocados fish oils and so on. Take a slightly lower portion of protein and choose your carbs according to how they affect your blood sugar (low or high GI).
Movement/ flow is essential to life. If movement ceases, death follows. It can be applied to most things in life, a language you learnt, a skill you mastered or the activities you did in sports when younger. All of which if you stop using (movement/ flow) you will lose the ability (death follows). Our body needs movement to allow it to decelerate the aging process, stay healthy and be pain free. Sometimes in the present moment of getting into the fitness regime, you over do it by repeating the same movement and that itself will lead to repetitive strain injuries also referred to as RSI by clinicians who treat pain. The movement needs to be varied so that you don't overuse the same set of particular muscles and cause a compensation pattern in your body, this would usually end up causing pain elsewhere where the muscles away from the movement is getting weaker and the prime muscles that are moving are just getting stronger (here is where we can use the metaphor the rich get richer and poor gets poorer). every three weeks or so, learn a new movement or do something different be it, something you dislike or haven't done in a while. Change your regime/ program's intensity, sets, duration, weights and even environment as these factors will enhance your motor skills and make your brain wake up from the mundane! From the new stimulus that you have provided, your resting basal metabolic rate (BMR) will rise up slowly and this is what helps you burn calories while your rest!
Stress is another one that increases your body's chances of weight gain, not weight loss. Adrenaline increases your heart rate, elevates your blood pressure and boosts energy supplies. Cortisol being the primary stress hormone, increases sugars (glucose) in the bloodstream, changes your immune system responses and suppresses the digestive system and the reproductive system is also affected (talk about not in the mood for things after stressful days at work). Sleep is affected as the minds is in constant chatter and weight gain follow shortly, don't forget that all of these will bring you into a physical form of diseased state, which is contributed mainly just by stress alone. It can come from a relationship, work related or personal work-life balance (the rat race). One way you can better manage the stressors of your life is to simply put it in one word is, meditate. Clinically, meditation has shown to decrease stress by bringing yourself from fight or fight state to rest and digest. Meditation can also help improve your immune system if you're constantly in the fight of flight mode (stressed out), it's been shown in research that simple meditation increased the quality of sleep for insomniacs and if you can have a restful sleep, your brain and body will be able to clear off any waste products it has accumulated during the day. Meditation is simple and you don't need any fancy equipments or be religious. You can simply start by closing your eyes for 5 minutes and allow yourself to just be aware of you breathing in and out from the nose. Your mind will wander off but stay focused on just being aware of your breath through your nose, start by doing a few minutes then work your way to whatever feels comfortable to suit your current needs. You can do it before you sleep, during lunchtime, during a short break or whenever you have time throughout the day. Meditation will help you have mental clarity and allow you to have a power nap within meditation time for your work and well being.
Ever gone to the gym and all you did was either run on the treadmill, sat on the bicycle and paddled to nowhere or even did a workout that you didn't know what to do so you went and did whatever you feel like picking up? Have you seen an elite level athlete without a coach?, or someone who's recovering from a sports injury / operation who's not with a healthcare provider (physiotherapist etc)? Most of them will need a professional engagement as these people are trained to look at what your strengths are, find weaknesses ti improve on, motivation, and most importantly prescribe safe and effective program. The issue is, you would be paying a premium to the professionals for their time. An average session price with a Physiotherapist in Singapore would cost from $85 an hour, a Chiropractor $85 per treatment and a Personal Trainer $75 per session. So if you come across a good offer to get you under professional instructions, grab it. If you have money to burn then it wouldn't matter anyways.
1 in 5 adults experience pain sometimes in their life. Pain lowers the quality of life and sometimes halt activities for a long period of time. Pain can be both good and bad, for example the soreness from having a new workout which recovers within 4 days and the pin you get when you run too much around your knee is the latter. One way to avoid pain is to ensure, again, that you move how your body in a multi dimensional directions. This will ensure that your body has enough elastic properties to lengthen and contract and to get blood flowing throughout the entire chain. Pain can sometimes be caused by:
