Previously I mentioned that I don’t do any cardio and that is correct but I do weight train. Weight training may not be your cup of tea and also may not be in line with your goals; that’s fine and you can still lose weight with no cardio too.
Now your goals may include weight training or even include cardio and thats cool too. Everyone has different goals and therefore must eat a little differently for their goals.
I hope to show you how to determine your specific goals and help lead you in the direction of realistically obtaining those goals without crazy fat burners, fad diets, or the next garbage fitness equipment.
Now are you really committed to changing the way that you look, feel, and think? You’re going to have to be committed to make lasting changes.
Its not hard, and what actually got me to where I am now is one little change at a time. Those little changes add up over time and become a huge change in your overall appearance, confidence, and ability to overcome the next challenge in your life; regardless if it is fitness related or not.
So now you need to determine if you just want to lose some fat with a healthier diet or if you want to add in a training regimen; your diet will differ with what macro nutrients (macros) you intake as well as your caloric intake. For me, weight training has given me the look I want out of my body and I focus my training on weights.
Weight training also gives the benefit of more lean mass which burns more calories and also gives the look that many of us want.
Take a look at the following article from the Mayo clinic which will goes into more detail on the metabolism and why I chose to incorporate weight training.
Make your decision on your overall goals and follow along on how to start changing your diet for those specific goals; a huge part of changing is cleaning up your diet.
