Diabetes Weight Loss: 7 Best Ways to Burn Fat Fast
Jul 03, 2019
There are many ways to lose weight FAST, however, many of these ways may leave you feeling hungry and dissatisfied.
Life stressors may act as emotional triggers that can lead to emotional eating, "falling off the wagon", and a pattern of false starts.
I believe that the best way to approach weight loss is to look at the "small picture", get micro. Forget about the long term and simply break your day up into small 2-hour blocks that I like to call "micro goals".
I believe that micro goals are the key to major achievement. Don’t worry about tomorrow, next week, or next month - just focus on the immediate.
Setting and achieving micro goals are small wins that we can celebrate. This helps to keep us motivated and on track working towards our end results.
When focusing too much on the bigger picture it is easy to have small slips here and there, when compounded, sabotage the major goal.
Here are 7 simple micro goals the will help you to achieve major results:
- Start your day with lemon water. Drinking lemon juice in the morning is good ways to help bring your pH levels towards the alkaline side, which will help you to feel your best. A morning beverage like coffee will only act to make you more acidic, so go in the opposite direction before you have your coffee.
- Eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking up. Get your fat-burning metabolism up and running ASAP by eating before you leave the house. Doing so will ensure that your blood sugar doesn't drop later in the morning causing you to make poor nutritional decisions.
- Snack on protein and fats every 2 hours between meals. Eating every two hours keeps your metabolism burning high and lets your body know that it will be fed regularly. If your body is unsure of when it is going to be fed it holds on to calories as fat.
- Drink at least 1 gallon of water each day. It is very common to mistake hunger for thirst and many people spend the day chronically dehydrated. Fatigue, lethargy, irritability, and dull headaches are all signs of dehydration. Also, drinking water helps flush excess water weight that may be retained from the body. Water in = water out.
- Drink ZERO calories. Drinks that contain calories also contain sugar. Many people are way exceeding their caloric needs by drinking soda, juice, sports drinks, and energy drinks. Stick to water, naturally flavored sodas, coffee, green tea, and limit alcohol consumption.
- Do some form of exercise each day. Consistency is king. It doesn't have to be fancy; it just has to be consistent. Challenge yourself to do a minimum of 15 minutes of some form of exercise every day. I like to plan my exercise schedule for the upcoming week each Sunday. Having a plan helps to keep me to stay on track.
- Do it because you deserve it. The key to success is passion. If you are passionate about truly changing your lifestyle to finally give yourself the life that you deserve, you will succeed.
