1. Make sure to incorporate at least 3 days of strength training and cardio training to your fitness routine. If you do them on the same day, strength training comes first, then cardio. To make your workouts even more quick and effective, do supersets when doing strength training and interval training for cardio. Three days of workouts at 30-45 minutes each time. Done! Perfect workout!
2. Eat 4-6 smaller meals throughout the day to keep your metabolism boosted. Make sure you incorporating lean proteins, fresh fruits and vegetables and healthy fats when planning your meal and space them about 3-4 hours apart.
3. Pre and Post workout meals are the most important meal of your day. The pre workout meal gets your muscles ready for an intense training workout. The post workout meal is to replenish your muscles and help to rebuild them. Your post workout meal should contain protein and carbs, but not fats and make sure it is into your system no later than an hour after your workout. That is why I prefer shakes for both my pre and post workout meals.
4. Drink plenty of water to flush the nasty toxins out your body and keep you hydrated. If you get tired of the same old water, try adding some lemon or lime or fresh berries to refresh the taste.
Stick with these 4 simple tips and you will be well on your way to achieving your weight loss goals!
