5 Ways To Lose Weight Naturally And Keep It Off For Good
Do you want to start losing weight naturally, but you really want to do it in a healthy and fun way? Are you tired of the boring exercise programs and overly restrictive diets that you've had in the past, which were so hard to stick to in the long term? Allow me to share 5 ways that you can use, to make your natural weight loss journey a more enjoyable experience for you.
I believe that your natural weight loss journey, should be a fun and somewhat enjoyable experience... one that has you challenged, learning but still being flexible enough so that you feel amazing every day... and not feel like... 'I can't wait for this diet and training thing to be over'...
Chances are that you've probably tried some diets and exercise regimes before, that were way too restrictive and just not flexible enough to suit your lifestyle and preferences.
Perhaps you enjoy 15-30min quick and intense HIIT workouts rather than 1 hour regular bodybuilding workouts...
Perhaps you enjoy running and exercising in the outdoors (park, running on the beach, etc) rather than being stuck in a small, cramped gym, resembling a prison...
Maybe you want your diet to have room for occasional cheat meals and daily healthy snacks, which actually taste good and make you feel satisfied (who doesn't)
We are all completely different and while some of us enjoy the hardcore bodybuilding diet of chicken, broccoli, sweet potato and brown rice... and training at cramped gyms, flexing for half your workout (ok you caught me, that's me)
Others like to have a more flexible approach and train with at least some of their workouts in the outdoors, in a more fun environment. They might have families, that only allow them quick 15-30min HIIT workouts and their diet to be a more flexible diet, where it's still under control and portioned well, but also flexible enough to allow that healthy curry, or even a weekly Grilld Burger cheat meal.
Here are 5 ways that can help you lose weight naturally and keep it off for good:
1. Start an exercise routine, but ease into it
Most people think that in order to lose weight, you need to be going to gym at least 5 days per week, of 2 hour+ weights and cardio sessions...
Quite the contrary.. you can start off slow with only 3 days per week, only 15-30min sessions, whatever you believe is ACHIEVABLE and realistic for your lifestyle... You will still lose weight naturally, but by easing into it, you will avoid burnout, you will get in all your workouts and you will feel proud of yourself.
2. Make exercising fun
By making even just 1 of your sessions an outdoor park session, where you just perform some floor work, like push ups and sit ups and perhaps doing some sprints outside in the park, or next to the beach... This can really help, especially if you're an outdoor person.
You can also have some of your sessions at the gym, which I feel is more motivational, because you can see others' working out, so you feel more amped to give it your best as well.
You can make your workouts only 30 min HIIT workouts, where you go from one exercise to the next, to the next... without resting. 4-5 exercises combined, which can really make things fun, get your heart rate up, sweating and burning more calories.
