Americans gain an average of 1.3 pounds during the holiday season that they don’t lose. While this doesn’t seem like a big issue, it can really add up over time, equating to a gain of 26 pounds over the next 20 years! Losing weight is never easy, but these tips will help you reframe your approach to ditch the pounds for good.
Too much cardio can cause your body to become catabolic, meaning that instead of building lean muscle and burning fat, your body starts to burn muscle and store fat, which ultimately will lower your metabolism.
Birth control, pregnancy, age and being a woman are just some of the reasons I have heard for a slow metabolism. I have put together 6 simple ways to boost your metabolism and help you shrink your waistline. Long gone are the days of obsessive cardio (I rarely do cardio now), restricting and counting calories (I haven't counted calories in years), and stepping on a scale (who needs to when you feel fabulous)!
The closer you get to your goal weight, the more muscle you lose in proportion to the fat that you lose, which begins to lower your metabolic rate and your fat-burning capacity. This is when dialing in the details makes a big difference. Those details combine diet and behavior strategies that will rev up your metabolism to break the weight-loss barrier and help you lose those last 10 pounds.
If you have put on a few pounds and are feeling uncomfortable from all the holiday cheer, you can incorporate these quick fixes to help relieve bloating and water retention.
The holidays are here, and as a result, you may find yourself falling behind on your fitness. After all, your schedule is most likely packed with parties, shopping and other festivities that seriously cut into your gym time. But, here’s the deal… you can have your fruitcake and stay fit too.
The core is the centerpiece to any physique. A toned and flat tummy only shows as a result of discipline in diet and training. There are so many different ab workouts and programs that promise a six-pack, but what does it actually take to attain one? And, what does it take to keep a set of lean, flat abs all year?
Rather than simply giving up on goodies this holiday season, try these clean ingredient swaps and suggestions to slim down your holiday favorites. Happy baking!
