17 Weight Loss Secrets That Will Show You How to Drop A Pant Size, WITHOUT Stepping Foot Into A Gym.
For your viewing pleasure, I’ve compiled 17 epic weight loss tips that will not only help you drop a pant size without stepping foot into a gym, but will also make you a happier human being in general.
Without further ado, let’s dive right into this list.
1. Walk daily.
2. Eat real food for dinner.
3. Eat until you are full, not stuffed.
4. Walk up a hill, or mountain trail, if there are any close by.
5. Drink a glass of water 10 minutes before eating any meal.
6. Be consistent. Weight loss is a game best played for the long run.
7. Replace either breakfast or lunch each day with a gigantic protein shake.
8. Once or twice a week run REALLY fast for 20-60 seconds. Repeat this 3-8x.
9. Eat more on the days you exercise, and less on the days you don’t exercise.
10. Practice intermittent fasting and eating all your food within an 8 or 10 hour window each day.
11. Become a master of basic bodyweight exercises such as: the squat, lunge, pushup, pullup, and crawling. Then, use them in high intensity bodyweight workouts 2-5x per week.
12. Control what you can control, and don’t worry about what you can’t. You can’t control how fast you will lose weight, but you can control things like how much water you drink, the foods you eat, and how much weekly exercise you get.
13. Get 7-9 hours of high quality sleep every night. Poor sleep habits will halt that weight loss train dead in its tracks. To lose weight you must get as much high quality sleep as possible. This isn’t negotiable.
14. Whatever you do, DO NOT starve yourself. Starvation diets not only make you miserable, but they actually slow down your metabolism, making it easier for the body to cling onto fat tissue. Contrary to what the Facebook fitness gurus say, in order to lose weight (and keep it off) you need to eat food.
15. Surround yourself with winners. Losing weight can be a seriously hard endeavor for folks. Who you surround yourself with has a huge impact on your results. Surround yourself with positive and encouraging people, who fully support what you are doing, and genuinely want to see you succeed.
16. Acquire a few kettlebells or dumbbells so you can do resistance training exercises right from your living room. Spend time squatting with the weights, pressing them over your head, picking them up off the floor, and even just holding them and carrying them around your house.
17. Don’t try to be perfect. Perfection is the antithesis of progress. Don’t beat yourself up if you ate 4 slices of pizza on a Friday night, instead of your planned 2. Be fast to accept it, and even faster to move on. A good rule of thumb is to eat “well” about 80% of the time, and not worry about 20% of the time. I call this approach “flexible dieting for long term results, without starting to hate your life and fall completely off the wagon.”
Phew. There you have it.
