5 Things I did to lose weight faster and so should you

Weight loss is easier said than done but neither should be an impossible task. While it does require tons of mental and physical strength and grit there’s always a few things you can do to make it easier and faster. Want to know what I did and recommend? Find out below.

While most people experience instant results in the beginning fat burning generally slows down after a while but all hope isn’t lost just yet.

I switched to drop sets

A workout technique not many newbies would have heard of but I personally found droplets to be way more effective than the rest. It’s simple, your workout using a higher weight till muscle failure and then continues for another 5-10 reps with a lower weight until absolute failure.

Be careful though. Overdoing it can result in instant fatigue and slower recovery. With drop sets getting your carb dosage is important to stay energized throughout. Here’s more in details about drop set workouts,

 

I kept my diet simple

When it comes to diet for newbies it seems to turn into an obsession. Every gram of food needs to be precise. While that seems perfect your chances of succeeding with a diet plan are higher if you take it easy.

Excessive stress can lead to poor choices such binge eating etc. enough to spoil your weeks of effort. Get everything prepped up during the weekends and separate it portion wise into Tupperware boxes.

Sorted out my carb intake

On the days I train I prefer to get the entire carb dosage needed but on my off days or days when I take it easy I prefer to consume only 40-50% of the regular intake. This is useful because it prevents excessive carbs from being converted into fat on off days.  Also, it gives the body enough time to adapt and grow according to the new dietary changes.

Got my omega doses sorted

Now whether you opt for it in supplement form or in dietary form is a personal choice but I am sure you’ve heard plenty about the benefits omega oils offer the body. It’s recommended for both bodybuilders and weight loss seekers.

This is because of it, more importantly, improves general health which irrespective of your goals should remain a priority. For even better results I would suggest you combine it with CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid). For dosage contact your trainer.

I took my days off

Does taking a few days off scare the hell out of you? Worried it will ruin all the effort you’ve been putting in daily? Here’s a golden rule about training most people tend to ignore.

Rest is as important as your workout itself.

So yes if you’re not in the mood or have aches or a bruise, take the day off. For your training to be productive you need to feel fresh and stronger which happens only with good rest.
