What's the first thing you do in the morning? Slowly get up and get ready for work/ school? You'll need to change that to really tone that body and burn those calories early in the day.
What exercises should I do in the morning?
Start your morning cardio with an intensive 20-minute run on the treadmill. If you can't stand running, hop on the elliptical or bike.
What should I eat before/after my morning workout?
Have bowl of Oatmeal after your cardio session (add water only – skim milk if required with cinnamon). Oatmeal is loaded with fiber that prevents your body from storing fat and the fiber in oatmeal decreases your appetite to make you “not” gain weight. If you eat oatmeal about 1-to-2 hours before doing a workout, it will give you a longer lasting blast of energy. This will help you workout longer and more intensely, ultimately helping you lose weight much faster.
How should I be eating throughout the rest of the day?
Your meals should be scaled down throughout the day. For instance breakfast should be your largest meal and dinner should be your smallest meal. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and most people skip it. You're in a rush, you'd prefer to sleep a little later rather than prepare a meal and you just can't seem to make the effort or find the time. Resist the urge to hit the snooze button and make the effort to have a proper breakfast meal.
Eating early in the day sets up the rest of your day. You'll find less urge to eat late at night. Most of your energy is spent throughout the day therefore if you eat a larger meal before bedtime you store all those calories and since your body uses very little energy during sleep you accumulate a lot of the calories which then turn into fat.
What foods help lose the fat?
Raw vegetables and fruits help facilitate weight loss. By eating an apple that has 85 calories your body burns 95 calories to digest that apple. Subsequently you've burnt 10 calories every time you eat an apple. The more raw fruits and vegetables you eat the better you can maintain your ideal weight. Your body burns 16% more calories in meals that consist of mostly raw fruits and vegetables.
