What do some of the best personal trainers and nutritionists think you should do to lose weight and get in shape? I will get to that in a minute, but here is what I think you should do. If you do not know what to eat on a diet to lose weight, read the what to eat on a diet to lose weight post. Speaking of what to eat while dieting, if you have never heard about the weight loss breakfast, I highly recommend it. Try it for at least one week. Your abs will thank you for it.
As for exercise, I like to keep things simple. And while there are many good exercises out there, the best workout to lose weight fast is, wait for it, walking. What did you expect me to say? High intensity interval training (HIIT)? Do not get me wrong, HIIT is great, but if you need to lose more than 10 pounds, it is not for you. Why not? Because people who need to lose a lot of weight are at a higher risk of exercise-related injuries. It is easy to get injured during HIIT, which makes walking the best alternative to HIIT.
Here is what Harley Pasternak, Joy Bauer, Jackie Warner and Scott Uehlein have to say about the best way to lose weight and get in shape.
What is the best way to keep your energy levels up on a low-carb diet? Joy Bauer: Eat lean protein at breakfast and lunch. And do not be afraid of carbs in veggies! Jackie Warner: Drink three liters of cold water a day to speed up the metabolism. You will burn 100 calories and be energized. Scott Uehlein: Snack! [About 25] almonds have 100 calories and keep you satisfied.
How often should you exercise or go to the gym? Harley Pasternak: Pick a number you know you can do, like 25 minutes. It is easier to commit. Jackie: Three times a week will maintain weight, five times a week to lose. Do 45 minutes to an hour each time.
Should you stay away from alcohol to lose weight? Joy: No! A light beer, small glass of wine or a vodka with club soda and lime each only have about 120 calories. Harley: Take one day a week to indulge as a free day and have a cocktail then! Or try this: Make ice cubes with Vitaminwater Zero, then pour a little vodka over them!
Why do celebrities do to lose pregnancy weight quickly? Joy: I have helped so many stars do it. They work hard. They tightly control calories, cut out junk and exercise. Scott: They have incentives (like a movie or the Oscars) to lose quickly and do so with trainers and extreme calorie reduction. But it is best to have a realistic time frame – exercise, reduce calories, drink lots of water and have patience! [via]
