5 Tips for Quick Weight Loss
Tip #1 Eat every 2 – 4 hours during the day. This means 5 or 6 smaller meals a day versus 2 or 3 larger meals. Doing this will help improve your body composition, energy levels, and overall health.
Tip #2 Avoid processed carbohydrates such as white bread, bagels, white pasta, white rice, chips, crackers, and sugary desserts. Instead, opt for whole – grains, whole oats, brown or wild rice, quinoa, and sweet potatoes.
Tip #3 Add good fats to your diet such as ground flax seeds, olive oil, flax oil, avocados, and raw mixed nuts.
Tip #4 Drink plenty of water. About 60% of your bodyweight is composed of water. According to the Institute Of Medicine, men need to drink about 13 cups a day which is about 3 liters and women need to drink about 9 cups a day which is about 2.2 liters.
Tip #5 Do 30 minutes of cardiovascular training 4 – 6 days a week. By cardiovascular training I mean fast walking, bike riding, hiking, jump roping, etc. This will keep your heart healthy in addition to burning excess body fat.
