Three Steps To Weight Loss Success

By Russ Howe-P.t.i.

More and more people are getting lost with how to lose weight so in today's article we will cover three basic, simple rules to success with your diet plan. Despite the advances we have made in science, this remains one of the main areas which people experience difficulty with.

There is so much information out there that it has become almost too easy to get misled. People are afraid to commit to one goal because they are constantly being promised easier results elsewhere.

There is nothing stopping you from getting results and we are going to show you why it might actually be far easier than you have previously been led to believe.

The steps we will explain here today are not for purchase, they are free. They're backed up with years of scientific research so you know they work and you may well be surprised by their simplicity.

Here are the three fundamental rules to a good diet.

* You must know where to get your calories from.

* Exercise is your diet's best friend.

* Half of the battle against the bulge is just learning how to avoid temptation.

So, first of all we're going to show you how to ensure you get not only the right number of calories per day but also that they arrive from the best sources of food. If you do not know how many calories you should be eating to reach your goal weight, try this simple equation. Take your goal body weight in pounds and multiply the figure by 12. See, we told you it was easy!

Celebrity obsessed culture is to blame for our tendency to cut calories far too drastically in a bid to experience quick weight loss. We highly recommend you do not follow that trend, because it encourages yo-yo dieting and actually brings about less results than proper dieting.

The most important factor in your diet is learning how to get the right amount of protein, carbohydrates and fats each day. If you can do this, you are on the right track to success. A great way to achieve this is to try to have 40% of your total calories from protein, 40% from carbohydrates and 20% from fat.

Once that is in place it is time to hit the gym or get another form of exercise. The best form of exercise when it comes to cutting size is anything which elevates your heart rate. You don't need to subscribe to the old formula of endless hours on a treadmill, exercise like high intensity interval training is proven to yield better results and do it in a shorted time.

Furthermore, do not be afraid to use weights. This one applies mainly to women, many of whom still subscribe to the old myth that weights will only make you muscular. Think about that for a moment. If it were really true, then every man you saw at the gym would look like Sylvester Stallone! Weights will help you to burn even more calories as well as tone your muscles.

The biggest test you will face is when you are in a situation with no meals prepared and a stressful day ahead. Yes, we're talking about work. It's no wonder so many people succumb to the temptation of the sweet shop while at their job. Protein is by far the superior nutrient when it comes to snacking.

So it makes sense to pack a few small protein rich snacks into your satchel before work and use them wisely throughout the day. Not only is it going to keep your diet on track, but it's going to curb your hunger while at your job.

You no longer need to wonder how to lose weight effectively because today's three steps have actually told you the answer. It may have been a lot easier than you thought it was going to be, too. Usually if you ask somebody for advice on how to build muscle you will be met with a bunch of similar over complicated answers, so our next post will focus on that topic for you.
