Steps Toward Fat Loss Success:
1) Know your goals and what you want to achieve.
You must have a clear vision of where you are going to get there. If not, then you will never reach it! Your goal should be attainable, achievable, and realistic.
2) Be patient with yourself.
Don’t try too hard at first; just go through the motions until it becomes second nature and habit. Then, you can increase your efforts.
3) Do not give up!
Keep trying even when things don’t seem to be working out well. If something doesn’t work out, keep trying again and again until it does.
4) Read books on nutrition and exercise if possible.
These will help you in achieving your goals better than anything else could do so. They will also provide you with ideas on how to improve upon them or make new ones.
5) Make a list of all the foods you eat.
Write down every single one of these foods. You need to know exactly what you are eating each day. This way, you won’t fall into any kind of starvation mode or binge eating phase.
6) Write down everything that happens in your life.
What do you feel? How do you act? When do you feel happy? When do you feel sad? Where are your strengths and weaknesses?
All these things need to be written down. This is important because it will give you a clear picture of where you are now and where you need to go.
7) When choosing between two options, always choose the one that will get you closer to your goal.
Some of these may seem like a good idea at first but they will only take you further away from it. Be smart about this!
Facts and Tips
Eating big meals is discouraged. Eat 6-8 small meals within a day. Your body will be able to use the food you eat faster as a result.
Even healthy food can be turned into fat if consumed in excess amounts. So never overeat! Be moderate with your food, in fact be moderate with everything.
Crunches are not the best exercise to lose belly fat. It is one of the most overrated exercises and should be avoided.
Do not take this process too seriously. Laugh, play, and enjoy the little things in life. No point in dying early just because you wanted to look good without any fun on the way. Live your life!
