You know the drill when it comes to losing weight: take in fewer calories, burn more calories. But you also know that most diets and quick weight-loss plans don’t work as promised. If you’re trying to drop a few pounds fast, these trusted expert tips will make it easy for you to lose the weight quickly.
Richard’s Top Weight Loss Tips:
Schedule your workouts in your calendar. Studies have shown that simply scheduling your workouts at the beginning of the week can actually double your chances of following through with your workout
Get an accountability partner. Team up with someone that has the same goals with you and is at a similar level of fitness to you, and organise some workouts with them. It’s tough at the start, and you gotta compromise a bit to make it work, but the benefits of being accountable to someone are worth it
Eat a protein rich breakfast. Add some healthy fats and fibrous vegetables too.
Choose an eating regime you can stick to. For the long run. There’s an old saying (that I might have made up) An imperfect diet executed perfectly, will work better than a perfect diet executed imperfectly
Drink plenty of water. People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger. You can end up consuming extra calories when a glass of water is really what you need.
Eat Fibre Rich Foods. Foods containing lots of fibre can help keep you to feel full, which is perfect for losing weight. Fibre is only found in food from plants, such as fruit and veg, oats, wholegrain bread, brown rice and pasta, and beans, peas and lentils.
Don’t ban any foods from your weight loss plan, especially the ones you like. Banning foods will only make you crave them more. There’s no reason you can’t enjoy the occasional treat as long as you stay within a reasonable limit
Don’t stock junk food. To avoid temptation, try to not stock junk food – such as chocolate, biscuits, crisps and sweet fizzy drinks – at home. Instead, opt for healthy snacks, such as fruit, unsalted rice cakes, oat cakes, unsalted or unsweetened popcorn and protein bars.
Break a Sweat Every Day. Preferably doing something that you enjoy, and with people you enjoy being around
Implement these simple rules with any diet and exercise plan to ensure success, for good!
“I was very hesitant and scared to change, and wasn’t sure how the weight loss program was going to affect me. I had also tried some other weight loss programs before with little success.
Thanks to your program I have gained a greater appreciation for what my body needs and how food will affect all areas of my life. I have enjoyed much more energy and mental wellbeing.
I really appreciated having the support and guidance from Richard each week to keep me motivated to keep going. It was also very good that The program was personalised and tweaked, and there were lots of food options provided.
Highly recommend!! ” – Lisa
