Embracing My Journey: Fearless In Shedding Body Fat
Are you trying to lose weight, but it takes a long time to achieve results? For most of us, this was an accident, and there are some techniques to overcome this obstacle. But first, if you often find yourself large and ask yourself the question “Why don’t the numbers move?”, then you may wish to take seriously the following:
- Body weight and body fat are not the same thing. As muscles grow and fat burns, the numbers on the scale will not move, but your body composition will change. Because muscle is heavier than fat, you will certainly not notice the difference in weight. Calculate your body fat and monitor it over time so that you can properly measure your progress. Your body fat percentage is a more accurate tool for measuring progress.
- Your weight does not represent your fitness level. There are great, active people with different body shapes and sizes. If you want to measure your health, take a physical fitness test and receive training to improve your performance. How many push-ups can you do? How far can you run? This will indicate your level of health.
If you are firmly committed to reducing body fat, the following tips will help you.
Have You Got Enough Sleep?
Sleep plays an important role in weight loss, and most people underestimate the importance of sleep. When you fall asleep, your body produces hormones that promote its regeneration, and it also burns fat.
Lack of sleep can completely disrupt your hormonal balance and make you lose energy, but blood sugar levels make you make poor diet choices. You may have noticed that the more tired you are, the more you crave fat and sugary foods, right? This is a very common side effect of lack of sleep.
Go to bed every night. It is recommended that you go to bed at around 10 pm every night because your body will begin to release hormones, which should make your body sleep well (use this sleep cycle counter to find the ideal bedtime). If you have difficulty logging out, please set an alarm 30 minutes before going to bed to remind you to turn off all electronic devices, make yourself a high-quality herbal tea, and relax. Getting 8 hours of sleep every night is not always easy, but it is worth a try!
You Don’t Know How Much To Eat
To lose weight, burn more calories than burn. If you eat too much, your body will not be able to burn all these extra calories, and your body fat will not decrease. On the other hand, if you don’t eat enough, your body will be “hungry” and will do its best to maintain fat storage. This is why you can’t get rid of these ugly little obstacles.
Use the Food Tracker app and record all meals during the day to get a rough idea of your daily calorie intake. After a few weeks of follow-up, it is easier to understand why the results are delayed.
You Are Not Active Enough
You can use it for one hour a day, five to six times a week. But what about the remaining 23 hours? Of course, eight of them should be reserved for sleep. However, what you do during the rest of the day may also be the reason why the ratio does not seem to change.
Many of us drive to work all day and sit by computers. But burning fat is not just in the gym! This is the source of NEAT (Non-Sports Activity Heat): it is the energy you spend on daily activities (such as cleaning your body). Go home, pour a glass of water, or go. It has nothing to do with fitness. If you are having difficulty losing weight, consider increasing your daily exercise.
Use a smartwatch or pedometer to record your activities during the day and try to reach 6000-8000 steps per day (excluding exercise). You may find this difficult, causing you to change your habits and adopt a more active lifestyle.
You Are Inconsistent
Consistency in weight loss is the key to success. Many people make difficult weight loss decisions. They exercise hard and eat carefully for a few weeks, and then relax in the next few weeks. Then there is the famous phrase “I will be back on Monday! “.
They kept it that way for several days. But now this is the birthday of the best friend on the weekend, and good solutions will soon be abandoned. If you only give yourself 150% of the money 40% of the time, you will not behave like you give it to 80% of the people. Like everyone else, you will experience countless days of life, but this is normal. To persevere and persevere,
Don’t be too tight on yourself! Give you the best things every day, start small. Try to exercise twice a week, but not too much. As time goes by, gradually increase the amount of exercise. Focus on diet. Stick to 80% of the time and arrange according to your schedule, and deal with the remaining 20% of the time. In this way, the goal will not be affected too much.
Monitor all progress closely and work hard to achieve the goal. But don’t lose power by slowing down. Tomorrow is a new day-don’t give up!
