Celebrity Trainers Reveal The Ultimate Weight Loss Secrets
How many times have you come across an article or a video that promises that you can lose weight in no time and with minimum effort? We know, too many. And while this is the dream of us all, we are sorry to tell you that it is not true. There is no magical way that will make you lose weight easily and overnight. If you want to have a fit and healthy body you have to work for it. We can’t promise you that your weight loss journey is gonna be easy, but we are sure that these tricks from top celebrity trainers will come in handy. Grab a pen and a notebook and take notes. We will do too.
1 || It Is All In Your Head
To make your body move, you need to change your thoughts. A huge part of the battle is in your head. Change the way you talk to yourself from “I just can’t do it”, “I am not a morning person”, or “I don’t like working out” to “If everyone can I can”, “What made me wake up?”, “Why do I need to show up at the gym?”. Once you stop believing the negative story you were trying to convince yourself with, your actions will catch up with your mind.
2 || It all Starts From Your Diet
When it comes to weight loss, 80% of the work lies in your diet. If your goal is to lose weight, you have to eat less than you burn. According to experts, the best thing you can do is to keep your protein, fat, and carbohydrates intake balanced. In this way, you keep your blood sugar levels balanced so you burn fat effortlessly. That said, your goal should be that 40 to 50 percent of your daily calories come from carbs.
Another helpful tip is using a food tracking app. Documenting what you eat and counting your calorie intake daily will keep you on track much easier. We love MyFitnessPal, it is an app that tracks diet and exercise. The app is so friendly to use, you either type or even scan the code of what you have eaten and the app will give you the whole list of nutritions and calories in your food.
3 || Be Mindful
This one is so related to the one above. If you want to lose weight, you need to stay mindful of everything you put in your mouth. One of the reasons why you’re struggling with losing weight might be the fact that you eat your food fast and you swallow it instead of chewing and savoring every bite. You need to eat your food mindfully and stay away from added sugars, processed foods, and saturated fats.
4 || Snack Before Going Out
Don’t eat out hungry! I mean it. You will end up eating the whole menu… And you will regret it. To avoid all the drama, it is recommended to eat a healthy snack before heading out so you are not starving once you hit the table. Don’t allow one time of overeating to ruin all the hard work you have done.
5 || Don’t Give Up
We hear you, the journey is long and hard but you can do it. The goal you are working for is huge so don’t give up if you didn’t see the results you imagined from the first week. Put small goals along the way and celebrate achieving each one of them. These small steps are what gonna change your life at the end of the day. You need to be patient and consistent and know that nothing will happen overnight. Try to workout 30 min a day, five times a week and cut processed food and see the difference.
6 || Learn What’s Right For You
The losing weight journey is not only gonna make you shed some pounds, but it is also gonna educate you and allow you to know yourself better. So although there are some general rules like limiting sugar, salt, and fats, avoiding cheat meals, and having your largest meals in the morning, this journey is so personalized so when choosing a diet try to follow one that suits your body and blood type.
7 || Drink More Water
This simple trick can make a huge difference. Drinking a cup of water before meals can suppress your appetite, which means consuming fewer calories. Water will also eliminate waste from the body and help you shed some weight as a result
8 || Your Goals Must Go Beyond Weight Loss
To keep the energy and the will for a lifetime, you need to see things differently. Instead of centering your goal around a number, try to make it about being, staying, and aging healthy and gracefully. You need to embrace a healthy lifestyle not only to lose some pounds but because it is better for your health in the long run.
Also, shift your focus towards the things that you can control. So instead of saying: “I have to lose 10 pounds”, say “I want to take twelve thousand steps a day”, or “I want to get seven hours of quality sleep a night”.
9 || Make Some Changes In Your Routine
Three things you can do according to the world’s top trainers, first, aim to drink three 1.5 liters of water a day. second, try to get at least six and a half to eight hours of quality sleep per night. Finally, if you have the will, try to do 30 crunches in the morning, and another 30 right before bed. Crazy but worth it.
