Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle

In past years it was thought that cardiovascular exercise, such as running, was the best way to burn fat. However, nowadays experts have switched their beliefs to a more intense workout, such as weightlifting for the best results when trying to lose weight. Resistance workouts get the body working quickly and burning fat even quicker. Exercises that involve the whole body, such as dead lifts, squats, or lunges make your whole core work hard.

Not only will you lose weight from these core workouts, you will also be building muscle on top. All workouts are also accompanied by a diet when on a weight loss plan. If you are trying to build muscle, you would want to incorporate a lot more protein into your diet than you normally would eat. Proteins such as egg whites in the morning, and chicken throughout the rest of your day is healthy and low in fat. You can also take protein supplement shakes that are loaded with beneficial protein for when you muscles are rebuilding after an intense workout.

If muscle gain is not part of your goal, you may want to stick to a more cardiovascular workout. Cardio and healthy eating will more than do the job for healthy weight loss. it is important to note that if you do go the cardio route, you should not just jog at a continuous pace, but do a type of interval training where you run at different intensity levels for the most effective weight loss.

Finally, as I have stressed in most of the articles on this blog, you should set realistic goals for yourself and figure out where you want to be. Weight loss and health is not something that is short term, you must continue some type of diet and exercise to maintain the weight that you lose as well. Do not get discouraged in your weight loss routine as well.
