Your 30-Day Weight Loss Only Diet In January?

Posted Jan 29 2011 6:19pm
Did you try a "30-Day weight loss only" diet in January? How did it work for you? If you lost weight, now what are you going to do? Another 30-Day diet? You still have a lifetime to go!

Being fit is much more than going on a diet. Fitness is a lifestyle designed to improve your energy, your health, your mood, your self image and your body composition (among other benefits).

Did you check your body fat percentage after your 30-Day diet? Fat loss is more important than your weight loss. Burning fat is what really changes your body to lean and toned. Its possible to be skinny and still have high body fat. Belly fat, in particular, is dangerous to your health.

A “30-Day weight loss only” goal is a short-term fix for your weight problem and will not ultimately help you attain your goals! Establish eating and exercise habits that will help you burn fat and lose weight for a lifetime.

The type of food you eat and timing of what you eat is very important for your metabolism to work properly. Your body needs adequate amounts of the macronutrients ( carbohydrates , proteins, fats ) to function properly.

Increasing muscle mass is critical to permanently speed up your metabolism. Your body has to work harder to maintain muscle mass. And, increasing muscle mass will burn the fat off of your body.

Here is your February challenge:

1. Do full body circuit weight training 3 days a week (30-45 minutes a session).

2. Do interval cardio training 2-3 days a week (20 minutes a session).

3. Follow a nutritious meal plan based on your basal metabolic rate and calorie needs. You will never starve. You will eat enough to maintain your energy throughout the day and during workouts.

4. Compare your body fat percentage at the end of February to your percentage at the end of January. Let me know the answer.
