Lifting weight is a good way to lose weight and burn off all those extra calories. Weight lifting is a high intensity workout and helps build muscles and also lose weight pretty quickly. Instead of slogging at the treadmill for hours, you can just lift weights and get the same results faster.
2. Portion your meals right
Instead of cutting down on food drastically, you should portion your meals right and have 4-6 small meals a day. Your body too will get used to the small portions after a while and you would not feel too hungry all the time and resist the urge to pile on food.
3. Try high intensity workouts
Studies have shown that a minute or two of high intensity workout three or four times a day is a good way to lose weight. Although walking is good, if you are serious about weight loss, you have to try these high intensity workouts.
4. Power yoga
Yoga is not only about meditation and bringing your mind to a calm state. Power yoga is designed in such a way that you lose weight as well as make your body flexible. You sure are aware of the ‘other’ benefits of having a flexible body.
5. Bike to work and elsewhere
If your city is safe enough for cyclists, you should bike to work and places you can reach with a bike. Biking strengthens your lower body and also helps burn calories fast. Your legs are fit and shapely when you cycle on a regular basis.
6. Count your calories
You don’t have to worry about the calculations in your head as you have a lot of apps that do the work for you. Download the apps to your iphone or other smart phones and keep track of how much you put in and how much you burn every day.
