If you are a mom that has been struggling to lose your baby weight, maybe you have been struggling for several years now, then this article will give you some tips on how you can get on the fast track to getting your body back.
Many people go about losing baby weight the wrong way. They are focused on the wrong things, like low fat, quick fix fads and gimmicks. Here are 3 things you can do immediately to jump start your fat loss.
Step 1. Begin a resistance training program. This does not have to be fancy or complex. In fact, you can get a great workout in at home in under 30 minutes. No special equipment needed. Working your muscles through resistance will boost your metabolism and keep the muscle that you have. This is important as most diets completely miss the boat on this. Most people cut calories and do little to no exercise, lose muscle and thus slow their metabolism. Not good. This is a key component.
Step 2. Shut your mouth! Nutrition is probably 80 % to 90% of the weight loss game, so you need to improve the quality of the food you eat but also eat a bit less. No packaged or processed foods for you! Stick to wholesome natural foods, fruits, vegetables and lean proteins.
Eating less is also on the menu. Weight loss is mainly about calories in versus calories out. You simply must eat less if you want to lose baby weight.
Step 3. Stop walking. Many moms go walking everyday and have little to no progress to show for it. No wonder as walking is not challenging enough to make a change in your body. Nothing wrong with walking, in fact use it to supplement your regular workouts, but don’t make it the core of your routine.
Instead, do interval cardio. It is faster and more efficient and you will get better results. Intervals are simply alternating hard work periods with slow recovery periods. Think sprints here.
There you have it, 3 easy steps you can take to jump start you weight loss.
