Food determines how big you are. If you consume more calories than you expend, you will get bigger. If you consume fewer calories than you expend, you will get smaller. If you meet your maintenance needs, you will stay the same. Regardless of your metabolism, body composition, genetics, or whatever, your body must obey the laws of physics and biological imperatives. Now, your calorie needs can change over time. But in the end, it really is calories in and calories out. Everything else is just fiddling around the edges of this basic fact.
As this is my first post I'd like to state that my blog will be about supplying this type of simplistic, direct and honest information about fitness.
That was my first post ever on Blogger, as its my 6 month anniversary for joining this website. I'd like to go back to my roots and post some simple, effective and factual weight loss advice.
1. Drink Water, no seriously:
Two thirds of your bodyweight is made up of water. Water is vital because it gives us the ability to absorb nutrients from food and transfer them throughout the body. Additionally water is excellent for fighting cravings, by making you feel fuller and therefore eating less. Next time you feel a snack coming on, down a glass of water and see how you feel.
2. Lift & Run:
Far to many people make the mistake of doing to much cardio and not hitting the weights enough (THIS INCLUDES WOMEN). If your only doing cardio and not eating enough then yes, you will lose weight. However, you will also lose muscle and lots of it. Making you overall look more flabby than you were to start with in some cases. A balance of lifting and cardio will leave you with a lower body-fat percentage whilst also toning your entire body due to the increase in muscle mass.
