How many times have you attempted to reshape your body by dieting (or eating “healthy”) alone? Or by doing hours of cardio, walking in the park, running on a treadmill? But after all the sweat and tears, you see no results. It’s frustrating and bit depressing, no?
Because exercise is an equally important factor when it comes to fat loss. While clean eating helps by restricting fattening calories, exercise revs up your metabolism for an all-day calorie burn.
Sad but true fact: Dieting alone won’t cut it.
The best and healthy way to get the best results is a combo of weight training, cardio and nutrition (or what most folks call dieting)
I am speaking from my own frustrating experience.
I was a fat teenager. I loved to eat so I didn’t want to “diet” or eat healthy. But I was desperate to stop being “fat” so …
⇒ ⇒ ⇒ I ran on the treadmill for hours.
⇒ ⇒ ⇒ I jumped around and did all the aerobic exercises on TV to try to sweat and “burn” all my fat off.
I succeeded somewhat, because after a few months of hard BORING gym workouts I lost 5 kilos…whoohooo!
But I still felt terrible and I didn’t really look all that different. I still was fat and flabby because I didn’t just burn of my fat…I also burnt some of my precious muscle mass.
Fortunately, I met this fitness pro who helped me on the right path of truly transforming my body. He told me to do LESS CARDIO and focus on weight training. He made me do basic movements like: squats, deadlifts, bench press and pull exercises.
I don’t know about you, but weight training was soooo much less boring than endless hours of cardio…
He also told me to eat every 3-4 hours small meals high in protein and low in carbs and fill up on veggies.
I still did some cardio but instead of running around like a chicken for 1 hour, I did intervals in the pool– I swam fast for 1 lap, and then slowed down for 1 lap.
These 2 simple changes transformed my body from a fat and chubby 120kg insecure 20yr old into to 95kg and 4% body fat amateur bodybuilder…
Now that might not be your goal– but I completed my transformation 15 years ago and now I have 15 years of helping hundreds of folks with their own transformations and lifestyle changes since then.
