It’s all over the media, with ads promising us to lose weight, lose fat or how to get a six-pack. Every turn we take, we find someone that is trying to sell us something. Their words are appealing. They try to lure you into their false promises. It’s no wonder that a lot of people try and then fail with weight loss.
They are no secret formulas to lose weight and look better, weight loss takes place through a combination of diet and exercise. If you don’t move your body, change your eating habits, any progress will not last too long. Exercise is proven to be one of the most effective methods to lose weight. It also helps to keep it off!
There are so many benefits of being at a healthy weight. So, get started today on your way to a healthy lifestyle, building muscles and doing aerobic exercise. I leave you with the following explanations, it might get the point across:
Think of your muscles as furnaces.
- Your furnaces (muscles) burn coal (fat) as it is required.
- When you do aerobic exercise, air (fire) is inhaled and burns the coal (fat).
- Now, if you want to burn more coal (fat) you either need to increase the size of your furnaces (muscles) or increase the fire (air) inside them by doing aerobic exercise.
- Working your muscles increases your muscle tissue. So, it makes perfect sense to add a full-body workout into your fat loss program.
It takes time to burn fat, we are all shaped differently and our metabolism works differently, so do not get discourage that you do not see any results immediately, stay with your program, and you will soon start seeing results.
From my experience the last bits of fat that will come off your body is around your stomach, it took me months to loosen it, it seems your body keeps that fat depot to the end and another fat depot on your body is lost before. There is also fat inside your body around organs, that you can not see so that takes time to loose before your stomach goes. Stay with your program to get results.
