When it comes to losing weight, diet plays a bigger role than exercise. Losing fat is a matter of doing the right thing over a sustained period of time. As you know, the best way to lose weight and get the body of your dreams is by burning off the fat and keeping it off through a combination of exercise and diet. Luckily, fat loss is not a complicated science, there are principles and laws you need to practice so you can get the maximum results.
Therefore, if you’re looking to burn the maximum of fat within the shortest time possible, here are 2 eating principles that will help you get the body of your dreams without much hassle.
Don’t Starve Yourself
When embarking on a weight loss journey, most beginners make the mistake of skipping meals as means for accelerating trimming down process. This is the recipe for disaster. Depriving your body from valuable nutrients will have the opposite effects on your weight loss results and overall health and wellbeing levels. Meal skipping forces the body to enter into starvation mode, thus it’ll burn off less calories per minutes as it used to. In addition, when meal skipping—especially breakfast—you‘ll be more hungrier on your next meal, thus you increase the likelihood of overeating and binging.
As a result, you must properly address you nutritional needs so you can keep the starvation mode at bay. One of the best ways for revving up your metabolism levels and keep it high throughout the day is to eat frequently all through the day. The ideal eating strategy is to opt for 4-5 small meals a day, every 4-5 hours. Not only this eating strategy will help prevent the starvation response, it’ll also provide your body with a constant supply of energy, thus your physical and mental performance will improve drastically.
Control Blood Sugar Levels
The spikier your blood sugar levels are, the fatter you get, period. when you have elevated blood sugar levels, you’ll be hungrier and more prone to overeat. In addition, during this case, your body will be primed to store the carbs as fat instead of glycogen, thus leading to weight gain and other health problems such sluggishness, mood swings and other serious ailments such as diabetes.
Therefore, you need to keep your blood sugar levels on the low throughout the day. For that, here are some of the best eating guidelines:
- Use the Glycemic index to help you plan and decide on your energy intake. Opt for food with lower indices.
- Eat carbs during and immediately after a training session. During this period—what’s known as the recovery window—your body will most likely store the carbs as glycogen instead of fat. Not only that will help you with weight loss efforts, it’ll also help you recover faster from the each workout, thus improve your performance and prevent injuries.
- Eat protein with each meal. Not only protein is essential for building muscle and speeding up the recovery period, it’ll also give a sensation of being satiated, thus help you keep those cravings for more food at bay.
These 2 eating guidelines are simple and easy to follow. Yet implementation eludes most people. For that, you need to start small and build gradually. Making a big change from the get go is the recipe for failure.
