The Secret Weapon For Losing Weight
Many weight loss programs focus only the lbs you lose and not the type of weight your are losing.
Lean wasting is often associated with debilitating diseases such as Aids and Cancer - where the
body is actually wasting away and muscle is being lost. This is a state we never want to be in when
losing weight. Eating proper amounts of protein as well as including weight resistance exercise is
essential for healthy weight loss and maintenance.
So what about fitting into your Skinny Jeans? Its nearly every woman's desire and goal to fit into
their skinny jeans again. I, too, will attest to this desire at this very moment I have a couple of jeans
in the back of the closet that I can't fit into right now and I wish I could. Our jeans act as monitor
for sense of health, fitness and even attractiveness. They symbolize a 20th concept of youth, beauty
and even sex appeal. Something so simple as a pair of jeans can make or break our day affecting
what we think of ourselves - either increasing or decreasing self worth in its wake.
So how to get back into your skinny jeans? The first step is not to try to do it on your own. Its not
easy getting motivated if you have no new fresh ideas to draw from and no one to support you along
the way. There are qualified lifestyle coaches who have a background in weight loss and nutrition
that can help you achieve your goal. Do no look for a quick fix - that often perpetuates a vicious
cycle of failure upon failure. Take your time. The body can only lose about 1-2 lbs of fat a week -
again its fat not muscle we want to lose.
If you losing quicker than that you are either losing muscle or you may have been retaining water
and your body has finally released it from your tissues. A qualified professional will help you
determine how you are losing. Most professionals will recommend a body composition test which
will help you gage the percentage fat you are losing. Also, many of these newer and more advanced
body composition machines will also provide hydration levels as well as your basal metabolic rates.
Your basal metabolic rate indicates how quickly you burn calories at rest in a 24 hour period.
