Fat loss: A guide to making the journey easier

Summer is right around the corner, and I’m sure numbers at Fitstyler bootcamp start to boom right around now for that reason. There are always someone who wants to lose x amount of kilos in a certain amount of time – usually too short time.
These people normally get impatient as they don’t see results fast enough, and either end up putting more weight back on than what they initially lost, or simply give up. There is no quick-fix solution to losing weight and keeping that weight off. If you’re going to do it, you might as well do it the healthy way.

Incidental Activity
An hour at Fitstyler bootcamp equals 4% of your day, so it’s pretty obvious that what you do for the rest of the day matters in terms of what happens to your body. Incidental activity makes you live longer, and keeps your body active. Make sure you move at least 30 minutes a day. Choose the stairs, walk to the grocery store, ride a bike etc.

Be aware of what you put in your mouth
It’s no secret that to lose weight, energy in must be less than energy out. This does not mean that you should starve yourself, but you need to choose the right nutrition. Lean proteins, complex carbs and plenty of fruit and vegetables is vital to feeling full longer. Quit sugar and processed food that only provides empty calories, stick to food where you recognize the ingredients. Choose water when you’re thirsty and fruit when you’re craving something sweet.

Be a little strict
Your body is usually addicted to certain food without you being aware of it. It’s okay to say no when someone offers you unhealthy food, it’s okay to be strict and eat a banana rather than a chocolate, and it’s okay to get your act together and get your ass to Fitstyler bootcamp. It’s only an hour of the day, and the beach will still be there when you finish.

Not all at once
It doesn’t matter if you fail once in a while. You didn’t get fat from one ‘bad’ meal, and you won’t get instantly thin from eating a healthy one. You will therefore not hit rock bottom if you enjoy a chocolate now and then. Consistency is the key. Don’t let the setback make you give up, simply start again the following day.

Find an activity you enjoy, and do it 3 times a week
It requires once a week to maintain, twice a week to get better, and three times a week to improve and change a body. Fitstyler bootcamp offers a variety of training, including resistance training, boxing and interval-style training, all designed to get the body you want. By finding something you enjoy doing, exercise will become more fun – and maybe even something you look forward to doing. Let it be ‘your time’ of the day, and appreciate the favour you’re doing your body.

Small milestones
Ten kilos can seem like a scary and extremely vague goal. Even though that is the final destination of your journey, it’s smart to set achievable milestones within that period of time. Things like acing through those dreaded mountain climbers at Fitstyler bootcamp, attempting to stay away from all ‘bad’ sugar for an entire month , running 5 km faster than your bootcamp trainers, etc.

Find a way that works for you, you’re supposed to live that way
Not everyone likes running around the triangle in North Fitzroy at 6 am, and not everyone wants to go boxing after a hectic day at work. Figure out how things work for you and your habits. Food and exercise should not be something you have to hate dealing with every day. Make it a lifestyle, and it will become easier to keep the weight off.

Resistance
Strength training is the most efficient form of exercise in terms of toning the body and losing weight. Muscles burn fat, and the more muscles you have, the more fat you will burn. Strength training also strengthens the bones and the brain, and protects your inner organs from damage. At Fitstyler, we take all this into consideration when planning your next session!
