9 Habits For PERMANENT Weight Loss
Today we’re going over the 9 habits that are going to change your body forever and when I say forever I’m talking about you getting in the shape you want to be in and staying there. Most people can only dream of maintaining a lean body year round but today I’m going to show you the nine habits that will help you do just that…
lets start with number 1 don’t deny yourself the food you love. You were probably not expecting that one, but it’s true if you want to transform your body and actually maintain your results you can’t stay restricted with your diet plan 4 too long. When you tell yourself that you cant eat something for a couple weeks it’s totally different than telling yourself you can never eat that something ever again. If you really love pizza and you decide you’re never eating it again, in fact, you’re never even going to think about it again, you’ve just locked yourself into a psychological wrestling match.
One that you’re probably gonna lose because suppressing a thought only makes you think about that thought more. A much better strategy to deal with your cravings when your on a long-term plan is by not having any restrictions but instead understanding your body better. What I mean is that we have two different types of hunger. The physical feeling of hunger and your mind’s interpretation of that feeling of hunger. The physical feelings are things like your stomach growling and feeling empty maybe even your mouth watering or feeling low on energy, but most people never even experience the physical feeling of hunger because before they even can their mind hunger has already taken over.
All the sudden your mind space becomes full of all these wonderful suggestions of things that will end your hunger and usually none of them are healthy. And like I just said suppressing thoughts will only make you think of those thoughts more so the best way to handle this is to allow yourself to eat whatever your mind is telling you that you really want however the catch is that before you allow yourself to have that pizza, cookie, or ice cream before you eat whatever it is that your mind is telling you-you want you to have to first handle the physical feeling of hunger by having a high protein, high vegetable, healthy carb meal.
Now the reason why I want you to do this is because your minds hunger isn’t real its an illusion, it’s just a reaction to your body’s physical feeling of hunger and as soon as you satisfy that physical feeling of hunger 90 percent of the time you won’t even want to eat whatever it is that you were obsessing over and if you still do help yourself because you’re not going to eat very much of it before you’re full. You’ll be mind blown at how amazing this strategy is. Try it I can go on and on about how great this is but there are still eight other habits that we have to go over…
so let’s move on to the next one which is to start exercising with heavy weights. Lifting heavier weights releases more muscle-growth and fat-burning hormones than lifting light weights. As long as your moving at a moderate pace you’ll be able to burn way more calories and get way more done within a shorter period of time. Also for naturals lifting heavier weights helps encourage more protein synthesis, which isn’t as much of a concern for steroid users, but for naturals this leads to greater muscle gains. My favorite rep range is six to eight reps so when I say heavy I’m not talking about powerlifting, but you want to pick a weight that you can’t do more than 8 reps. If you can do that weight for more then 8 reps then its time to move up to a heavier weight. The heavier the weight the more calories you’ll burn with each rep, and by using heavier weight you’ll activate more fast twitch muscle fibers and release lots of fat burning hormones allowing you to continue burning fat hours after your workout during the recovery process. You’ll also build more bone density and lifting heavy weights consistently will help increase your metabolism. Point is lift heavy weights, most of you that are debating between going heavy or light simply don’t want to push yourself, and pushing yourself is required to consistently continue getting results.
Next habit is to practice fasting regularly. I want you to get all that nonsense out of your head that you have to have breakfast and you have to eat x amount of meals a day because none of it is true. Your body works based off of totals so if you overeat one day and fast the next day your totals will probably balance out. Fasting allows you the freedom to eat more of the foods you enjoy.
