This workout will take about 45-60 minutes of your time daily.
The duration of the workout you need depends on your weight and the amount of weight you want to lose, but make sure you practise at least three hours a week to get satisfying effects.
Furthermore, making some beneficial dietary changes will also accelerate the process of weight loss and reshaping your body. Jon Denoris, a performance coach, recommends “nutrient timing”, which is eating the right food at the right time of day.
He says that one should consume unprocessed, whole foods as often as possible. If you are trying to lose weight, your diet should be rich in high-quality meat and fish; lots of vegetables, essential fats like avocados, nuts and coconut oil; and whole foods such as brown rice and quinoa, which have a lower GI rating. Protein like meat, fish or eggs regulates metabolism and satisfies the appetite, so it will also lead to fewer junk food cravings.
On the other hand, he suggests staying away from labeled foods, whose ingredients are difficult to pronounce. Additionally, one of the biggest mistakes one can make is to ditch the healthy eating plan before the results are visible.
You should surround yourself with people that support you and your aims, and they can even join you in your healthy dietary regime and workout routine. And remember, motivation is the most important thing, and from the moment you notice the first results, you are on a good way to get in great shape soon!
