This is what has worked for me so far:

It’s all about staying active and burning more than you take in. It really isnt rocket science.

Remember: You CANNOT out excersise a bad diet, so be sure that you practice a balance diet of protein,carbohydrates, and fats. Protein absolutely plays a huge role in muscle building and muscle tissue repair. Who doesn’t love muscle?? There is nothing worse than “skinny fat”

For example: For a 120lb female, you should be consuming 30 grams of protein per meal. Carbohydrates should be limited to quinoa, oats, sweet potato, and carbs found naturally in some veggies. Keeping sugars very low, remember that fruits, although very nutritious, can be very high in sugar. So, be cautious. I love all berries, apples,1/2 a banana every other day. Oh and i love nuts and raw nut butters. (nuts are high in fats, so… moderation)

STAY AWAY FROM PROCESSED, SODAS, AND FRUIT JUICES

(unless you juice your own veggies at home of course)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eat smaller meals and eat more often. No more waiting until you are absolutely starved, because…you will binge, and enough binging will definitely cause weight gain. Trust me, I know.

Workout for AT LEAST 45 minutes 6 days a week and challenge yourself . On your off day, try and stay as active as possible, but do not do any strenuous cardio or lifting.

Always make time to do your workout (NO EXCUSES!)

Here are some of mine<3 http://carrotsncake.com/  www.thefitnessista.com  www.sarahfit.com  www.stuftmama.com

Always stretch before and after a workout

try and track your workouts by writing them down or using an app.

Use proper form. You should feel a burn in your muscles, not a pain in your joints

If you can still carry on a conversations, you need to increase the weight or intensity.

The point is to RAISE THAT HEARTRATE into the FAT BURNING ZONE

When you begin to feel the burn do additional reps at the end of your set

CIRCUIT: 2 exercises performed back to back with no rest, a bust of cardio, then rest for 45 sec

HIIT training= Best kept secret in losing weight
