What is the best way to drop the weight?

What is the best way to drop the weight?Christmas 2008

Do a google search for the best way to lose weight and you will find all kinds of ways to do it. But it looks to me like there really is a formula to successful weight-loss!!

Personal Dedication:

The first part is for you to really make the decision to become dedicated to becoming more healthy. People who start weight-loss journeys with the attitude that they will try something for a little while or they aren’t sure if it will work for them, are going in looking to fail or for any excuse to go back to old habits.  If you’re not ready to really go for it, don’t.

Nutritional Plan:

The food plan you choose is very important to your journey.  There are all kinds of nutritional plans out there to choose from but for me Medi Weightloss is the best choice.  This is a plan that has strong medical backing and isn’t just some kind of fad diet or shake plan.   I use real food and the plan is doctor supervised.  Keep a food log!  You will be surprised!

Support System:

Losing weight is hard! Especially if you are trying to do it alone! Having people there to root you on or that you can talk to about problems can help greatly! TOPS is a group where you can go to weekly meetings for support and education to share time with like-minded individuals who are also losing weight!  I get support from Medi Weightloss  too, as well as from my friends and family!

HIIT Training:

High-intensity interval training is a type of exercise that involves repeated short bouts of high-intensity, or burst exercises, followed by brief recovery periods. This sequence is repeated several times in a row usually for a duration between 20–30 minutes. Considering the fact that many people use “not having enough time” as a popular reason to avoid regularly exercising, HIIT workouts are one of the best ways to overcome this block and get great results fast. A HIIT protocol is a well-researched way to reap physical benefits as an alternative approach to steady-state exercise training but with less of a time commitment. For example, recently a study compared the impact of two different types of exercise training on body fat and muscle metabolism: HIIT workouts versus steady-state exercise.The study investigated the effects of calorie expenditure and fat loss in young adults and found that although HIIT workouts actually burned fewer calories during the actual workouts than did steady-state cardio exercise (likely due to its shorter duration), the HIIT program produced more fat loss than steady-state exercise did overall. Additionally, the study concluded that while the HIIT workout helped build muscle, the steady-state workouts actually broke muscle down. Researchers concluded that not only does HIIT burn more fat over the duration of the day, but it also builds more muscle and improves metabolic function.

So, what does it take to lose weight? Commitment, good nutritional choices, exercise (cardio and resistance), and support! Have you heard this before?  😉  We can do this!!
