When Is It No Good To Stay Fat Forever?

After years of failing weight-loss efforts, it’s time to put fat back on the menu. Here are five ways to re-invigorate the gym. You may think that you’ve just learned a few new ways to burn calories, but maybe it’s a good thing that you’re now aware.

Even if it’s not the first time you’ve tried this, it’s possible that you’ve lost more fat using the wrong strategies. Perhaps you’ve tried to gain weight without dieting, using some fat burn workouts like HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) but your gains weren’t as great as you thought they could be. Or maybe you’ve tried fat loss over the past year with minimal successes. The latter is definitely the most dangerous way to lose weight. It might help you feel great for a little while while you’re gaining weight, but eventually you’ll be stuck in the obese position again and your body will begin to break down and your metabolism won’t be able to support the fat you’re gaining.

The first step to re-invigorate your workouts with something more than a steady jog is understanding why a weight-loss plan won’t work on its own. If you’re obese, the first thing to remember is that this is your body. It’s the one thing you have and you absolutely have the right to try to shape your body as you see fit. Once you’ve accepted the reality that your fat is there to stay, it’s time to replace the unhealthy behaviors you’ve been repeating without noticing.

Re-invigorate Your Weight Loss Efforts With A Balanced Diet

“But,” you protest, “all of your research says I should do everything I can to lose weight! Why do you say I can’t do the same thing now?” The reason is because I don’t want you to feel like you need to get all your weight-loss efforts in during a time when it’s very likely your body is still working overtime. I’ve spoken to a number of dieting and weight-loss researchers at the very highest levels and they all agree that your body has a set number of calories available to do whatever it needs to do to keep itself healthy. If your body runs out of calories quickly, you’ll gain unwanted weight quickly, which you don’t need. But if your body has room to burn out in a more gradual manner and you take the appropriate steps, you’ll lose weight and keep it off for the long-term. In short, your body doesn’t need a diet to stay healthy. Instead, it needs a healthy approach: one that’s based on keeping your fat loss effort within a normal range, taking advantage of calorie needs even as you diet, and maintaining a sustainable exercise routine to keep you energized.

To do this, you’ll need to take into account your weight, your body composition, your health, your activity levels, and a healthy diet plan you’ve prepared ahead of time that incorporates all those factors. It’s a fairly complicated equation, but the goal is to get as many of those calories out of your calories when you are working out that you can.

It’s important to have a weight loss plan as basic as possible and a diet plan that will help you maintain your weight as often as possible. That’s because in the long-term, even the hardest diet is easier than staying at a healthy weight when you aren’t exercising. The fact is the only way to lose weight is to exercise regularly and stay at that healthy weight forever.

You’ll need to take all the steps you need to, but here are some things to consider when you’re ready to start the process:

1. Determine Your Weight

I said it previously, but a lot of health professionals I consult with are very clear in their recommendations. If you’re over 200 pounds, they’ll tell you that you should be working out 6 to 8 hours a week, so start at least 5 to 6 days a week. If you’re over 260-280 pounds, they won’t tell you to count calories, so start counting your total calories every day.
