Looking for the best way to get rid of your saddle bags, muffin top and flabby arms? I’ve got it for you right here, right now. The three things you must know in order to get the body of your dreams. The best part is there is no need to perform 8 minutes of a singular exercise to make it happen.
Better yet, you don’t have to purchase some obnoxious piece of equipment that inevitably ends up collecting a pile of dust bunnies under your bed. More good news- you don’t even need to spend a dime on diet foods, powders, potions, pills or fatten Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers wallets anymore.
Sounds too good to be true doesn’t it? Well, it’s the truth- it happens everyday to people with healthy, strong and aesthetically pleasing bodies. They know the 3 secrets to spot reduction and how to keep body fat at bay. Are you ready to soak them in, too?
Take a deep breath, get ready, here we go:
- Move your ass- get off the couch and take a walk, go jogging, ride your bike and do something most days of the week that gets your ticker ticking at a level that screams exercise to you. Lift heavy things that work all your muscle groups a few times a week to make them stronger, which will torch more calories. Hire a trainer to help you put together a proper program for your current fitness level, or join a fitness boot camp or exercise camp that provides you with accountability and support to exercise. Exercise = weight loss, DUH!
- Shut your mouth- put down the fork and leave the seconds to the rapidly growing teenage athletes in your home who need those extra calories. Eating proper portions of the right foods not only provides your body with critical vitamins, minerals and nutrients, but also keeps your body weight in balance because it supports your energy needs. Too much food (no matter what it is) leads to weight gain. By making simple adjustments in your daily food intake you can lose body fat weight and see those rippling muscles you’ve worked so hard to get (see number 1). Less food = less ___________ (insert whatever loving name you have for your body part here)
- Stop making excuses- we all have them, just like other body parts. The difference between those who have body fat issues and those who don’t is simple. Priority! Behavior change is inevitable if you are trying to lose body fat weight; you simply can’t continue doing what you are doing and you simply can’t keep making excuses for it either. Losing weight is a psychological process that takes time and energy on many levels, but it has to be done to spot reduce any appendage on the body. Excuses = no results, so STOP it!
Basically, I’m repackaging the same information I’ve been yelling from the top of my soap box for years. There is no magic way to make things disappear off of your body unless you would like to enlist the help of a plastic surgeon. Weight will come off gradually from all parts of your body that are carrying extra weight. We all have genetic potential to carry extra weight in certain places (thanks mom and dad), plus the aging process tends to shift things south and give the skin a less than plump appearance.
As a matter of fact, the majority of what my personal clients call “fat” is actually extra skin from losing weight after childbirth, or aging skin that’s lost elasticity. Sorry, no exercise will change that. However, exercise can change the appearance and give a little lift if the muscle underneath said skin is underused and no longer developed. Remember that butt muscle you used to have when you played sports? Maybe now it is a softer, flatter version of itself. I can fix that!
Most of you have heard of one or more of the three secrets to spot reduction. So the question now is what secret(s) do you need to put into play to give you the action figure body you want? I’ve got the answers: contact me to schedule a personal training appointment or sign up for a camp, go to http://www.dietgrader.com and sign up for a free week of nutrition enlightenment and get those portions and nutrients in balance. Oh yeah, almost forgot, please flush your excuses down the toilet with the rest of your crap. Excuses have no place in your spot reduction journey.
