Do you hate dieting? Believe me when I tell you that you are not the only person who feels this way. Showing willpower when craving a cheeseburger or fries is not easy. I have a solution that will help you diet and exercise effectively, as this system has worked for me.
Many people do not know how many calories they need in order to maintain their weight. To figure this out, you must find out your basic metabolic rate (BMR). Once you find out how many calories you must eat in order to maintain, cut your calorie intake by 10 percent or 20 percent. You can find the BMR scale on the internet. You have to perform math skills, but it’s simple mathematics.
One concept that you must remember is that in order to diet and stick to your diet goals, your determination to lose weight has to be much be stronger than your passion for food. If your passion for food is stronger, the odds of failing will rise.
Exercise is very important, and exercise can be very boring, but the key to enjoying fitness is to discover what exercises you think are fun. I follow a reduced calories diet and I discovered a new way to exercise. I don’t perform pure cardio — like running — and I do not engage in absolute weightlifting, like bench-pressing heavy weights. The exercise that I love is combining cardio and weightlifting together. I walk at a very fast rate up hills while exercising with dumbbells. I throw punches as well as kicks with weights in my hand and weights attached to my legs. I jog and run with a weight vest on my shoulders and dumbbells in my hands.Performance exercises like these activities are the ultimate workouts.
There are many advantages to these exercises-such as burning fat, building muscle size and strength, and increaseing endurance. I had lost 50 pounds of fat and gained 45 pounds of muscle because of my diet and exercise routines, and I’m still dieting and exercising in order to become lean and perfectly fit. As long as you find the perfect exercise that you will enjoy performing on a regular basis, you will no longer have to push yourself in order to get off the couch to workout. Dieting and exercising can be a rewarding and fun experience, but it all comes down to how much time and effort you invest into these two activities.
