First let me start by saying two things: (1) Knowledge is Power and (2) What you don’t know CAN really kill you. OK now that we got that out the way, we can move on to less important things
Too many people are walking around, clueless about the right actions to take in order to lose weight and get the body they so desperately want (six packs and the whole enchilada). Most of the time, they end up doing all the wrong things and wonder why they are not getting the results they seek, despite the effort. Usually they say stuff like: “I do crunches EVERYDAY but I’m not losing weight around my waist area, and I don’t know why I’m not getting six-packs”. You also hear folks complain about gym results: “I go to the gym everyday but I haven’t lost an iota of fat since I started” or worse they say, “I eat only ONE meal a day, how come I’m not losing weight??” OK without further adieu, here is what’s wrong with those three statements
STATEMENT 1: “I do crunches EVERYDAY but I’m not losing weight around my waist area, and I don’t know why I’m not getting six-packs”.
ANSWER 1: I’ve said it many times before and I will repeat it again and again: Doing crunches does not burn fat, therefore it will NOT get you six-packs. Doing proper aerobic exercises will. It doesn’t matter if it’s 400 crunches daily! You need to come to terms with the fact that there is no such thing as target area fat burn or spot fat reducing. Fat is reduced proportionately throughout the body and if you include the right set of aerobic exercises in your weekly routines, you will quickly see that the crunches will all of a sudden begin to yield the results you want.
In order words, crunches just help muscle definition. Everyone has abs, but because the ab muscles are hidden beneath layers of fat, they do not reveal themselves unless the fat is tossed out
STATEMENT 2: “I go to the gym everyday but I haven’t lost an iota of fat since I started”
ANSWER 2: How many times have you seen someone at the gym on the treadmill running at constant speed for 30min-hour almost every day. Or perhaps you may have seen someone on the stationary bike nonchalantly pedaling while reading the morning’s newspaper? I see a lot of these, and I’m almost certain you do too. Well, these are the same people who coincidentally complain about not seeing any results from their daily workout and they wonder why. The answer is plain and simple. Their bodies have adjusted to the routines to the point where the same intensity does not condition the body to burn fat any longer. Yes, sad I know. So here is what you need to do, if you are one of those people. Well, besides watching and following all my interval circuit videos on my website, you should understand above all that you need to shock your body each time you exercise, and take it to levels it has never been before. But there is a smart way to do it, and it’s call Interval Training, or Superset Workout. Most of my videos discuss this extensively and you can also do further research yourself.
STATEMENT 3: “I eat only ONE meal a day, how come I’m not losing weight??”
ANSWER 3: This is a very tricky one so I will try to be as simplistic and brief as possible. If you starve yourself, your body goes into panic mode and starts to burn less fat because it says to itself “I need to preserve more fat because I do not know if this starvation will go on for many days, so I will keep the fat in storage to use it when sh*t hits the fan“. Guys, by the time sh*t hits, it’s probably too late. So here’s what you need to do instead. The body doesn’t care how many healthy calories you put into it, it cares how many healthy calories you put into it AT EACH SITTING. This means you can eat healthy meals every 3 hours as long as they are small-to-moderate portions. A rule of thumb is, if after eating you are feel very full, you have probably exceeding the reasonable require calorie intake. I personally eat 3 to 4 meals a day (including snacks). Try to eat your last meal at least 3 to 4 hours before bed!
OK folks, hope these tips help. As you could appreciate, they are quire simple, but unfortunately are unbeknownst to a LOT of people. Share the knowledge, do NOT keep it to yourself
