Jun 28, 2008
There are plenty of fat loss programs out there. Some of them are completely ineffective while there are others that have proven success again and again. Regardless of which fat loss program you decide to choose, there are 3 solid fat loss tips that will prove to be truly effective for your weight loss goals.

Fat Loss Tip Number 1: Plan and Prepare

The beginning of your fat loss journey starts with setting goals for yourself. Make sure they are realistic and attainable within the time period you are aiming for. Here are some good questions to ask:

1. What is your goal for your physique?
2. How much weight or fat do you want to lose each month?

The key to your planning and preparations is to make them achievable otherwise disappointment and frustration are all you will feel, despite all of your efforts. To prepare, make sure to clear your house of unhealthy foods, such as soft drinks, junk foods, sweets, or in other words, anything that's highly processed.

Instead, stock your house with fresh foods such as vegetables, fruits, plenty of waters, healthy snacks (preferably homemade or at least minimally processed). Vitamin and mineral supplements are not recommended unless you research the types of vitamins and minerals you may need. It's advised that you discuss your vitamin and mineral intake with your physician and/or a nutritionist.

Fat Loss Tip Number 2: Eat!

It's a common misconception that if you skip meals, you will lose weight. Actually, if you skip meals, you can actually end up gaining more weight. You would be training your body to think that you're always hungry to the point where you may end up going overboard when you do eat.

So instead of skipping breakfast, lunch or dinner, you can change the 3-full-meals-a-day rule into something more often: try to eat 5 to 6 small meals a day. These meals should be full of nutritious foods, not highly processed snacks. Make sure to always eat fresh, whole foods at eat of those 5 to 6 meals.

Fat Loss Tip Number 3: Exercise

Eating well and healthy is half the battle to losing weight. The other half is to exercise! This will shape and sculpt your physique more effectively than eating healthy alone (but don't forget the importance of a great nutrition plan). Exercise regularly and with a steady routine to see results.

To lose weight, the best time of day to work out is usually the mornings. Incorporate both cardio/aerobic as well as strength training exercises into your routine for the optimal results. A good cardio base will help regular your heart rate and increase your stamina, while strength training not only increases your overall strength, but it also tones your body in key fat-sensitive areas.

A good way to start out is to try a private session with a personal trainer. He/she can give you pointers on exercises that would work for your body type and fat loss goals. Make sure to discuss your plans with your physician so you have approval to begin any exercise regimen.

And those are it! Just three very simple, very basic fat loss tips to follow. Use these tips with any of the fat loss programs out there and you'll be sure to succeed, regardless of what directions those fat loss programs take you.
