Jelly Devote’s 6 Must Do Tips To Lose Weight & Get In Shape!
“1. First of all, weight loss is all about calories in and calories out. That means, to lose weight you need to burn more then you put in your body. Make sure to count your calories, weigh everything, because when you measure with your eyes you can eat so much more than you think you are.
I weigh everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. To lose weight you need to be in about a 500 calorie deficit a day to lose about 1 pound a week. Which is a healthy goal. You shouldn’t aim to lose too much weight too quick. So aim to be around 1400-1500 calories a day.”
“2. Make sure you eat the RIGHT food. By right I mean, know what your macros are (the % of fat/carbs/protein). If your aiming to lose weight, protein should be the highest one, then fat and last carbs. I’m about 45-50% protein, 25-30% fat and 10-20% carbs, depending on how fast I want to lose the weight.
For example, last week, I basically eliminated the carbs to the minimum. What you eat, is very important, you need food that makes you feel fuller for longer.
Sure you could smash in a cheeseburger on 300 calories for lunch, but how full will you feel from that, and how healthy is that nutrition? Not at all. So instead, eat some chicken, some veggies/greens and sweet potato/quinoa or whatever you prefer and provide your body with the right nutrition and vitamins for it to feel good, even on calorie deficit.”
“3. DRINK WATER. Very important. It helps your digestive system to run properly and helps you flush out toxins. Drink at least 2 liters every day. Also in the morning before breakfast, have a hot cup of water with squeezed lemon in, that will help your stomach start off well.”
“4. Treat yourself once every week or every other week. It’s good to shock your body when its used to eating healthy all the time. It also helps your body to start up the metabolism. But by cheating I don’t mean eat crap for a full day. Have one “bad meal” And also by “bad meal” I don’t mean be super unhealthy, I mean eat maybe some more carbs, a nice sauce, or some nice, cooked dinner. Not going crazy!”
“5. Don’t eat sugar or drink alcohol. The biggest mistake you can do is to eat loads of sugar. Sugar makes you addicted and will make you retain fluid. I know it’s hard in the beginning to stop eating it. But after a week or two you don’t crave it at all. Alcohol also makes you pile on weight. As I said treat yourself once in a while, but at ALL COST avoid these two.”
“6. Go to the gym, but make sure you have a plan. Don’t go to the gym everyday and “wing it”. Try to have a program (mine will come out 9th of february to buy again) to follow and structure your workouts to get the most out of it. Your muscles need to rest for 48 hours. Don’t overtrain yourself. So one day legs, the other shoulders and abs, day after that back and cardio and so on. Let your muscles rest. Depending on how much you workout of course.
Also if you are looking to lose weight you need to incorporate some type of cardio. When i’m really serious, I try to go twice a day, 20-30min cardio of some sort in the morning. But these days I just make sure I end every session with 10-20min cardio. I prefer treadmill intervals or incline or the spin bike. But everyone likes different forms.
Also don’t forget, its about QUALITY and not QUANTITY! Make sure when you go to the gym to make the most out of it. Better to go fewer times, but when you are there you are killing it!”
