Spring is finally here and we are all looking forward to the nicer weather. But if the thought of warm weather has you trying to lose weight, here is some advice.
Mix up the workout: Don't avoid strength training if you want to lose weight. The best way to lose weight is a combination of cardio and strength training to increase muscle mass. Increasing muscle will increase your metabolism.
Start slow, be consistent: When you're not used to working out, you could burnout if you start too fast. Usually, when people want to lose weight, they go to fast at the beginning and then give up. New exercisers should start with three to five times a week. The more consistent you are, the more calories you're burning.
Change your diet: Exercise is important, but your diet is a large part of your weight-loss formula. But it is important to eat well and exercise. Stick to whole foods like vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and lean protein, Tracey recommends, making sure you watch out for starchy carbs, added sugars, and too-big portions.
Don't lose too much too fast: You shouldn't be losing any more than one to two pounds a week, so make sure you're eating enough to fuel your new workout routine.
