The 5 Keys To Finally Lose Fat Fast!
Losing fat in my opinion is not all that difficult. You need to possess 5 Strategies and apply all 5.
1. A Compelling Reason To Change
2. Proper Nutrition
3.Progressive Resistance Training
4. Moderate Aerobic Exercise
5 Strategies For Fat Loss
1. A Reason To Change:
To make a successful body transformation, you must first and most importantly have a desire to change. And that desire must be fueled with a reason to change. This reason cannot be any old reason. It has to be the most Compelling Reason you ever had in your entire life.
Without this reason you won't be able to sustain your motivation to do the other four parts necessary to achieve a successful transformation. So what is your Compelling Reason to change? For some it is death of a loved one or wanting to live healthier so you can spend more time with loved ones.
For others it could be they are sick and tired of being sick and tired. Your doctor may be telling you to lose weight or go on blood pressure medication, or, worst yet, die-your choice. For each one of us it is different. I do know this; you must have a Compelling Reason to change period.
2. Proper Nutrition:
This is where 99% of us screw up. The worst part is there is so much misinformation and hype out there, nobody really knows what proper nutrition or eating right really is. Most people think to lose weight they must stop eating altogether.
Thinking this way is totally wrong, since this will slow down our metabolisms. Precisely what we don't want. Another way people think they're eating right is having fruit & coffee for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and a bowl of pasta for dinner.
Nope, that's not the answer either. So the question is what is proper nutrition? Ok in a nutshell, my idea of proper nutrition is 4 to 5 portion controlled balanced meals about every 3 hours throughout the day.
3. Progressive Resistance Training :
SPECIAL NOTE FOR WOMEN Please, DO NOT be afraid of weight training. You WILL NOT turn into the Hulk I promise. The objective or goal is to build lean muscle on our bodies. For women out there I love to call it lean SEXY muscle, because when you replace the fat on your bodies with lean sexy muscle look out!
You will turn your body into a lean & toned sexy fat burning machine! So weight training will be the same for you as it is for the men. Ok, enough said on that. I have to include the guys now. Building lean muscle will boost metabolism and that is what we want to achieve.
In fact, you'll even start burning more calories even while you rest. I'll let you in on a little known secret: you need lean muscle because that is where fat is burned! The more lean muscle you have the more fat you burn. That's what we're trying to accomplish with weight training.
In order to build lean muscle we must get stronger every workout. Let me repeat that. In order to build lean muscle (lean sexy muscle for women) we must get stronger every workout. That's what we call progressive striving to get just a little stronger each time.
4. Moderate Aerobic Exercise:
Moderate does not mean one hour and forty-five minutes, nor does it mean two hours. Moderate means anywhere between 18 to 25 minutes 3 times per week. That's it! Ok you can get up off the floor now. I know, I know, you're probably saying this guy Bill has lost it! 18 to 25 minutes?!?!
Ok, ok wait a minute. Let me ask you a question. For those of you who are presently doing aerobic exercise for one hour or longer, are you happy with your results? If you said No try 18 to 25 minutes 3 times per week you'll be amazed!
Aerobic exercise can be as simple as walking at a brisk pace, jumping rope, stationary bicycle, treadmill, stair stepper, etc. The bottom line is you have to find an aerobic exercise you enjoy, or you will end up not doing it on a consistent basis.
5. CONSISTENCY!!!: You must be consistent in following the strategies for:
* Proper Nutrition
* Progressive Resistance Training
* Moderate Aerobic Exercise
Consistency will result in successful Body Transformation!
If you take the time and put forth the effort, but don't do it consistently, then your results will be minimal. You can't expect to do all three strategies for one week then stop for a week then start for two more weeks then stop for another week.
I can't stress this enough, you must be consistent on all the action strategies: Proper Nutrition, Progressive Resistance Training and Moderate Aerobic Exercise. Consistency is the glue that holds everything together.
A Typical weeks workout (less than two total hours per week!)
Pick any 5 days.
Since I have a wife and Kids I like to have my weekends free.
So I break it down like this:
Monday: 18 minutes stationary bicycle
Tuesday: weight resistance training 15 minutes
Wednesday: 18 minutes stationary bicycle
Thursday: 18 minutes stair stepper
Friday: weight resistance training 15 minutes
Something like this is all you need to transform your body, of course you have to add in there Proper Nutrition!!!
I hope this helps a lot of you out there searching for answers.
