Permanent Weight Loss: Is it Possible?

Weight loss takes more than following a rigorous diet, weight loss pills or calorie restriction because they actually promote yoyo dieting and may cause health risk. Weight loss takes commitment and lifestyle change if you want permanent results and understanding the difference between yoyo dieting and lifestyle change will help you get the permanent results that you need.

Many weight loss regimens only gives temporary results because they are not the solutions losing weight permanently. Dieting involves counting calories or even taking dietary supplements and many dieters regain the weight they lost. Alternatively, lifestyle change is making healthier decisions, eating choices, and not avoiding certain food groups. This also means taking physical activities or strength training.

Building muscles is also the best way to lose weight and keep it off permanently and it is possible as long as you have a well planned goal and you work hard to achieve it and it doesn’t have anything to do with your genetic potential as long as you understand what to do and where to start. Find yourself a work-out routine fit for your circumstance and back it up with quality diet rich in protein essential in building lean muscle growth. If you join a gym, a trainer will be assigned to help you achieve your goal.

Planning the necessary workout is important in developing lean muscles. Cardio workouts of heavy weight exercises or aerobics are important in elevating heart rate, burn fat, and give time for your muscles to grow and expand. People who are obese can start using free weights like dumb bells that focus on specific muscle groups like the biceps and triceps. Three to four times a week and 45 minutes workout is an ideal routine.

Eat six small meals instead of 3 huge ones with a good balance diet of carbohydrates and protein to maintain the right insulin and blood glucose levels and protein intake should be maintained to 25 to 35 grams per sitting or at least 1 gram per body weight because your body can only take small amount per meal.

Develop a workout schedule based on your goals and efforts you should put on all muscle group in the lower half as well as upper body because if you only focus on triceps it will not give you a nice body shape. Bodybuilding routine should be 3-4 days a week but no more than five because your body and your muscles also need time to rest and grow that’s why you should also get enough sleep.
