1. FEEDBACK IS THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONSContinuously correct and adjust what you are doing to lose weight. Why? Because your body is constantly adapting and adjusting to avoid burning as little calories as possible (a survival strategy) and prevent weight loss. Your goal is to not give your body sufficient time to catch on to what you are doing. That way you’ll keep calorie burn at maximum and continue to lose weight. In short, avoid your body from catching on to your weight loss efforts, otherwise weight loss will slow or stop. You must periodically change your workout plan and your calorie intake.
2. MINIMIZE MUSCLE LOSSWhen you lose weight – no matter how good you are – it will never be 100% fat, some of it will be muscle. But, what you can do is minimize muscle loss. Don’t forget that when you lose muscle your metabolism slows down. Therefore, you must take steps to reduce muscle loss as much as possible. This means weight training! In fact on a good weight loss program you can increase muscle mass. So, you’ve hit two birds with one stone. You lose weight, but simultaneously increase your muscle mass, adding shape and definition to your body. This will give you the appearance of great health, rather than the ill looking appearance of those who have been severely restricting their calorie intake resulting in fatigue, irritability, insomnia, muscle weakness and vitamin deficiencies. Basically, when you come out of a good weight loss program you should be feeling the best of you life in a long time. Your stamina will improve, you’ll see an improvement in your ability to exercise, you will feel stronger, you’ve lost weight and your breathing and quality of sleep is better, your complexion is improved, your skin glows, and the list goes on… This is the only way to achieve a healthy, permanent weight loss and to maintain a great physique. It requires a PERMANENT change of lifestyle – not just a 2-week diet.
