Rebel Tip # 1
Before I tell you the first tip to successfully losing weight, I want you to grab a pen. And a piece of paper that you won’t mind seeing frequently.
Ready? Ok? Great!
Write this down:
I can do this.
Just making sure the pen was working, but also, a little positivity is always a great start.
Ok, now, write this down:
I need to eat FEWER calories than I burn throughout the day.
Yup, I know, I know. You’ve heard this before. But before you stop reading the rest of my tips, let me ask you:
- Do you know how many calories your body burns, if say, you just sat completely still all day?
- If I asked you to tell me how many calories you’ve eaten over the past 5 days, how close would you be able to get to the real number?
If you don’t know the answer to these, it’s ok!
But knowing the answer to them is the key to you finally losing weight.
And that can be tricky sometimes because everyone’s metabolism is different.
You can find the answer to those numbers with a simple Google search.
Try a couple of sources, and take the average.
And for your daily calories, use an app, or even your piece of paper and pen!
Mastering input versus output. It’s not pretty, but it’s the key.
Here’s the upside: it doesn’t matter what you eat. Literally.
But the truth is, eating whole foods, good fats and protein is healthy and makes you feel more full.
You’ll be healthier having a piece of salmon, or salad with fresh greens than when you eat a bag of M&M’s that might have the same calories.
Obviously, with a bag of M&M’s, (you’ll definitely be happy while you’re eating it) but you’ll also be pretty hungry about, ohhh an hour or so later.
And all you’re going to do is eat more.
Rebel Tip #2
Lift heavy shit.
Do that three to four days a week. And focus on form. Doing it well.
And, and it needs to be challenging. It doesn’t need to be so heavy that you can’t walk for a week.
But it needs to be a little bit challenging and just…simple!
Simple strength training.
Rebel Tip #3
I kind of said it in number one, but this is slightly confusing, so I want to make it a separate point…
Eat enough protein.
Protein is a very important source to build your muscle and for recovery.
And it keeps you full longer, you’ll feel satisfied, so you’re less likely to overeat at other times.
So basically, if it’s some kind of protein, it’s a green light.
Rebel Tip #4
Do things that cause you to move more than your normally would…
Park your car further away from the store. Take extra steps.
If you can walk to work, walk to work.
Take the stairs to the 3rd floor, not the elevator.
At the airport, don’t use that conveyor belt like you’re a piece of luggage (unless you’re late, of course).
Move around more. Engage in outdoor activities (literally anything) and that will help with weight loss too.
Rebel Tip #5
Just have faith in the process…and BE PATIENT.
Take it from me, fad diets don’t work. Anyone can lose 10 pounds by next Monday…
But losing weight quickly will likely lead to you gaining it back just as quickly.
So have faith in what you’re doing and be patient with a process that I am telling you is successful.
