In this article
The Ultimate Fat Loss Tips
you will find out about the "reality" of creating permanent fat loss! This will be "straight talk" without the --
VERY STRICT "proper nutrition and exercise strategy" information
-- that in "one way, or another" -- fills most of the pages on my site :-) I also want you to know that this entire weight & fat loss website was created by me,
without any previous experience of website design, HTML language, or any other skills
that have to do with creating and designing live websites. I was able to do this with the help of the wonderful Sitesell product SBI, which stands for Site Build It, if you click the banner lower down the page you can take a look at how I did it!. Because of this, I am aware that the current design might not be that professional. But, this is only because currently I am focused only on publishing as much weight & fat loss tips
as it is possible for me, in the small amount of "free time" that I have.
In the future, as I gain web-design experience,
I will update the "look and feel" of my site, and will make it look more "professional."
Okay, with that said, I want you to know that I had a really "strong desire" to write this page
from the first day that I started creating my "Weight Loss Tips and Secrets" website.
But, first I wanted to publish as many weight & fat loss tips & information as possible, so that you would have an understanding of my fat loss philosophy, and would be completely aware that proper nutrition and exercise --
is the only path that can leads you to the "creation" of irreversible, long-term weight loss success!
And, before I share with you -- The "Ultimate" Fat Loss Tips, I wanted to remind you that I started publishing the 14 Chapters from my weight loss system! One article will be posted on a daily basis. You can find this "free" content in the left navigation bar under
"The Secret To Permanent Fat Loss Secret System!"
These 14 Chapters contain all the fat-burning, nutrition, and exercise strategies that can help you to create a lean, healthy body in the fastest time that is possible! Please take into account there are 190 pages, and it will take a while for me to publish all of them.
But, you can come back and read them on a regular basis.
The only Chapter that will not be published is the first one -- that has my "unique" motivation strategy in it. The only way to get this information is
to order your own copy of The Secret To Permanent Fat Loss tips from the review page.
The good news is that
as a visitors to my site, you can order a copy for yourself
at a special discounted price! But, before you take a look at my weight loss system -- make sure that your read these
Ultimate Fat Loss Tips!
The Ultimate Fat Loss Tips #1: Slow And Easy!
If you have read some of my articles on this site, you might have gotten the impression that the "only way" to approach fat loss tips is to stop everything that you are currently doing in life --
and start following a "very strict" healthy eating plan and using "massive amounts" of exercise -- on a daily basis!
While, obvioulsy this would help you to create the body of your dreams in the fastest time possible, --
in real life, it is not that easy for most people.
It took me 8 years of trial and error, before it really "hit me," and I started to use proper nutrition and exercise in the beginning of 1994, -- on a daily basis --
to lose the 110 pounds of unwanted body fat that I was carrying around with me everywhere that I went -- back in those days!
So, my first fat loss tips is for you --
To Take It Easy And To Take It Slowly.
Always "start off" by taking the
easiest possible steps
that you can take -- in the beginning of your weight & fat loss journey! Creating permanent fat loss, and burning off the unwanted body fat from "inside" of your fat cells should not really be a "race." The best approach is to simply
walk "slowly" down the "right" path using a "turtle pace."
This will guarantee that you will arrive at the end of your journey with the body
that you have been dreaming about!
The Ultimate Fat Loss Tips #2: The Truth About Fat Loss Nutrition!
Now, when it comes to eating food and drinking beverages, here is the complete truth. The best approach is the same..."slow and easy." In the beginning of your weight loss program -- you must never "shock" your body by sharply dropping your daily calorie intake or sharply changing the food and beverages
that you are consuming on a daily basis!
There are two "major" reasons why this is very, very important! First, you never want your organism to "view" this drastic drop in your daily calorie intake or the change in the food and the beverages that you are consuming --
as the beginning of starvation!
If this happens, your body "will" slow down your metabolism and will start "burning off" less calories that come from the food and beverages that you consume -- during the day! Obvioulsy this is the
"last thing" that you want to happen when trying to reach your ideal body weight.
And, second, you "never-ever-ever" want your organism to "view" this drastic drop in your daily calorie intake or the change in the food and the beverages that you are consuming on a daily basis --
as a "reason" to start to increase your appetite.
If this happens, your body will start to produce
massive "food cravings" and uncontrollable "hunger"
-- which will "more or less" become the "end" of your weight loss program! Anyone, that has tried to lose weight using low calorie diets, fad diets, diet pills, and/or appetite suppressants --
knows exactly what these massive food cravings and uncontrollable hunger feels like!
To Create Permanent Fat Loss You Must Always Make Sure That You Provide Your Body With Everything That It Needs To Function Properly On A Daily Basis!
If you want to lose all of the unwanted body fat that you currently have, and
"by doing this"
reach your ideal weight -- that you will "maintain" for the rest of your life -- you must do everything "possible" to make sure that
"food cravings" and "hunger" -- become a thing of the past!
In reality, the only way this can be accomplished is by eating like a normal person on a daily basis. This means that you should eat four average sized meals,
every four walking hours of the day!
You must also eat your breakfast as soon as possible after you wake up! In fact, personally, I jump out of bed and run straight to the kitchen to eat mine!
This, without a doubt also helps me to get up at 6 AM -- every day of the week :-) !!!
Next, by using the same "slow and easy" approach, you should start consuming healthier food,
by "slowly" replacing what you are currently eating -- with unprocessed and unrefined food sources!"
In the Nutrition Articles, you will find the weight loss food article, where I provide a list of all the healthy foods that should eventually make up
around 70% to 80% of your meals!
Also, it is simply a "100% must" that you drink plenty of pure water on a daily basis. In the article Water And Weight Loss in the Nutrition Articles you can read why
this is very, very important!
The most important thing to understand about nutrition is this: Your goal with the food and the beverages that you consume is
to provide your body with all the calories, macro-nutrients, and micro-nutrients
that it needs to function properly on a daily basis! The best way to accomplish this is to make sure that you don't go over your daily "maintenance calorie intake" limit more than 10% to 15%, and to make sure that your daily meals never have more than 20% to 30% of the so-called "unhealthy foods" in them! The next fat loss tip can tremendoulsy help you in the daily "maintenance calorie intake" department -- which means that you will be able to eat more food during the day --
while continuing to lose "more and more" of the unwanted body fat that you currently have!
The Ultimate Fat Loss Tips #3: The Truth About Fat Loss Exercises!
The next fat loss tips, is, YES, once again -- "slowly and easily" start to use exercise on a regular basis. Without a doubt, this is one of the
hardest parts of losing unwanted body fat!
It is probably as hard as "not eating" the largest meal of the day,
before going to sleep. Yes, I have been guilty of this many, many times myself, and this is
exactly how I went from weighing 185 pounds when I was 16 to reaching 285 pounds when I was 24.
And, to be completely honest with you, even to this day, on a regular basis, for my last meal, --
I consume much more food than I should!
Without a doubt, the only reason that I am able to maintain my ideal body weight of 175 pounds with 10% body fat -- is because I eat this about three hours before going to sleep, and also because I eat these evening "cheat meals"
only on the days that I do my cardio training workouts!
It is true that cardio training, especially HIIT (high intensity interval training) that I use "increases" my appetite. But, the reality is that even on the evenings that I don't use it --
I still want to eat much more food than I should!
But, the funny thing, is that as long as I can remember myself, I always wanted to eat, high calorie, delicious food that I love, and this has never changed,
and to me it is completely obvious that this will never change!
So, why should I deny myself this pleasure? Isn't it better to "simply" help my body to burn off these "excess" calories using exercise? This way, I can enjoy eating the food that I love,
and at the same time continue to maintain my ideal body weight!
Properly Using Cardio And Cheat Meals Tremendously Have Helped Me To Find An Effective Solution To The Evening Hunger
The truth is that the "only" reason that I don't eat in the evenings when I don't do cardio -- is because I know that tomorrow,
after my cardio training workout,
I will have my "evening" cheat meal, and since my metabolism is really elevated after doing HIIT, this food
will be completely "burned off" by my organism!
Plus, the days when I don't use HIIT cardio training, I do weight training in the evening.
And, on the weight training days I have my "morning" cheat meals as part of my breakfast.
This means that I eat six cheat meals per week, and am able to maintain my ideal body weight.
This is possible "only" because I use exercise six days per week, with Sunday off!
Since I was born with a "naturally" slow metabolism, this is the only way that I am able to eat the food that I love on a regular basis, without gaining "excess" body weight. Without the exercise,
the unwanted body fat in my body starts to increase even if I follow a "perfect" diet.
So, after 8 years of trial and error, in 1994, when I was 24, I decided that I will simply continue to use exercise on a regular basis to "first" lose the unwanted body fat that I had at that time,
and after losing it, will continue to use exercise to "maintain" my ideal weight -- for life!
I am, in no way suggesting that you use HIIT,
especially in the beginning of your weight loss program!
This is a cardio training approach that can be used "only" when you reach the advanced level, and "only" if you can use this type of high intensity aerobic exercise on a regular basis. Not everyone can! But, what I am trying to tell you that exercise is what can help you to reach and then maintain your ideal body weight -- and also, it can help you to eat the foods that you love --
without gaining back the weight that you lost!
Here Is Exactly How I Completely "Burned Off" The 110 Pounds Of Unwanted Body Fat!
In the beginning of my weight & fat loss tips program, I started with walking outside! I went to the gym to do simple weight training exercises in the evening, and early in the morning and late in the evening,
I walked around the neighborhood where I live.
So, YES!, I burned off 110 pounds of unwanted body fat by simply using fast walking! The last six months I walked twice per day, every day, and used
for my first walk in the morning. I started out with 3 sessions per week, 5 minutes per session, and I kept adding 5 minutes per session, per week, until I was walking every day of the week --
for 60 minutes per session!
Then, I started doing cardio -- twice per day, and in the morning I used the
technique! Each session was 45 minutes long! I am convinced that if I used another cardio approach, most likely
I would not have reached my ideal weight.
Why? Because I hate to exercise, and I would have simply given up, if the cardio exercise that I had to do was any harder than simple walking!
Walking twice per day, every day, was hard enough!
As far as weight training, my best friend was a body builder. He told me many times that the more muscle he built, the more body fat he lost. So, by the time I started using simple weight training exercise to "maintain" my muscle mass,
I already knew that this would help me to keep my metabolism elevated.
Here, I also used a "slow and easy" approach. I went to the gym to do my weight training three times per week, used basic exercises, and simply lifted heavier weights with fewer repetitions.
Without a doubt this is the ultimate approach. I was out the gym in 30 minutes, and maintaining my muscle was a breeze!
After 15 years of maintaining my ideal body weight of 175 pounds, obviously these days --
I use more advanced nutrition and exercise techniques on a regular basis.
But, this is only because my body has been slowly adapting to everything that I use
to keep my body fat level at 10%.
Since I was born with a really slow metabolism, even if I stop what I am doing for a week, my weekly weight loss chart starts to show that my
total body fat weight
goes up! This only happens twice per year, when I go on vacation. But, as soon as I get back, the body fat that is gained during that time --
I completely burn off in two weeks using HIIT!
Fat Loss Tips: Conclusion!
In the end, I wanted to tell you that I am a normal person, and the fact that I lost 110 pounds and have kept it off for over 15 years
only proves that you can produce similar results!
I am as lazy as anyone else that I know in my life. And, NO, I don't really like the taste of healthy food,
and YES, I love to eat Cheese Cake, Brownies, and to drink a Milk Shake, or Two, or sometimes even Three! (especially, while I am on vacation in Amsterdam)
And, when it comes to exercise, NO, I don't like to do them either. There has never been a time, when I thought to myself, "I can't wait to do my exercises today!"
So, how do I get myself to take action
on a consistent basis?
It is very simple! I have completely admitted to myself that
I don't like to eat healthy foods, and that I don't like to exercise!
I have also completely admitted to myself that most likely, after 15 years, that
I will never start to like eating healthy foods, and will never start to like doing exercises!
One of the major reasons that I have the non-stop motivation "fuel" that allows me to eat healthy food and to use exercise on a regular basis is that more than anything else -- every day of my life I want to live having a
"Healthy, Well-Toned, and Muscular" Body With Six Pack Abs!
This "true desire" of mine, combined with the fact that I have learned how to objectively assess my "current circumstances" -- helps me to take "consistent" action,
without having to ever use my willpower, or any other in-effective motivation approach.
It is very simple, actually, if you think about it!
Don't you always find the time, and the energy, to do those things that really matter to you and that you find to be truly important in your life?
Well, just like you, I also simply find the time and the energy to do
what matters to me, and what I find to be truly important!
And, this is "exactly" what keeps me doing what I do -- on a regular basis --
without "ever" quitting or giving up!
