I am happy you chose to make tremendous changes in your life and ready to become super healthy.
However, I want you to remember that it is not an easy path you are about to start.
It took you several years to get that weight on your body, so do not expect to lose everything in a couple of months.
That said, everything is possible in life and losing weight is do-able as long as you follow a good system and avoid the bad foods.
After you’ve lost the weight and reached your weight loss goal, you will not only feel fitter, you will also notice that you will have more energy and that you will be more positive about almost everything in life.
Not only does this directly impact you, but also the ones around you that you so much love. So you are not only doing this for yourself!
So let’s start and go into the details on how you can lose weight in 30 days.
If you are looking to book weight loss results in a short time, read more about my fast weight loss program at the end of this article. My clients lose on average 10-20 pounds in just 3 weeks.
First it is important to understand what is the main factor that caused you to gain so much weight, after you’ve found that out, it is time to tackle that issue and make sure that this does not happen again.
Are you often stressed or do you feel stressed?
Stress plays an important factor in your hormone regulation and if you are stressed all your hormones are not in balance and this is not good for your overall health as you are more likely to gain weight during the times that you are stressed.
Just take a closer look at yourself…
When losing weight, know that slow and steady is way better than fast.
I would say that a weight loss journey is rather a marathon than a sprint and I would say this applies to almost anything in life.
When you are stressed you are more inclined to eat unhealthy just to reward yourself and please yourself on the short term, which in the long term doesn’t turn out so well.
Stress means that your hormone “cortisol” also known as the stress hormone will increase and this directly impacts your metabolism and may impact your insulin levels.
So not only will it make you go craving for all kind of fatty junk foods, higher insulin levels basically mean that you are insulin resistant and that your body cannot convert the glucose from the food you consumed into the body for fuel, so basically the sugar remains in the blood stream and therefore speeds up the process of gaining weight.
If you experience stress at the office, make sure then that you go out of your chair every hour and then to walk around and reflect on the tasks you still have to do and organize it so that you can finish your deadlines and that the stress will slowly disappear from your life.
If you experience a difficult phase in your life then just remember that this is temporarily, find something you love to do, whether that is talking with a good friend, or walking in the nature or biking around or playing bridge.
Have your own quality time so that you can relax. Schedule it in your agenda every day so you have something to look forward to and derive pleasure from.
Make sure you get enough sleep every night.
This differs for everyone but normally a person should get at least 7-8 hours of sleep.
A lack of sleep affects the hormones in your body that control your appetite.
A lack of sleep only increases your appetite for food, which in turn may lead to weight gain.
Make some rules for in the bedroom!
Firstly, do not work in your bedroom, your bedroom is only for sex and sleep.
Secondly, make sure that your bedroom is pitch black and that there is no ray of sun to be found in your bedroom.
This will help you to improve your sleep and not to distract you during your sleep.
Third, no electronic devises except for kindle or e-book readers.
The light of your smartphone or laptop has a significant influence on your brain and therefore you will have much more trouble falling asleep.
Even if it’s just for a relaxing activity such as watching a movie. It still has a negative impact on your sleep.
Watching a movie or show triggers your brain with so much pleasure signals that you will be so excited and pumped up at the time you actually want to go to sleep.
And as a result, you will spend more time awake thrilled and thinking about the story in that movie or Netflix show.
If you apply the above, then you most certainly will improve your sleep directly and you will also be less grumpy during the day. So your family also benefits from it!
If you are having a problem with your weight and especially they way you gain it.
Then you need to cut back on carbohydrates in your daily diet. If you consume to much of those on a daily basis, then your body becomes intolerant and does not use the excess of carbs you consume.
Those extra carbs will be stored as fat and is one of the reasons why you are gaining weight so fast.
So remove all kinds of carbs from your diet: bread, pasta, dairy, rice, potatoes, corn and soda. Instead overeat on protein and healthy fats.
Eat protein that does not have any fat or only healthy fat.
Think of fresh chicken filet, steak, fatty fish like salmon.
These last ones are actually very good for you and it is okay to eat lots of those.
Especially because they will fill up your stomach very quickly and therefore hard to overeat on and gain weight on.
Most of the sugar you consume and get in your body is via packaged food, remove every form of food that has already been processed.
Think of cookies, cake, pre-packed salads, instant meals and go on.
You should consider carbohydrates as your public enemy number #1, they can be found in white rice, bread, pasta, dairy and vegetables like potatoes and corn.
The manufacturers have added a lot of sugar so you like the taste and added tons of chemicals so the food can be stored for a longer amount of time.
This of course is no good to you and you would be way better of in your weight loss journey if you do not consume any of this.
Go all natural and choose food that in the first place come without a label.
Even if you have your coffee or tea with cream or sugar then this is still considered a bad habit.
You can only have your coffee black and without sugar, cream or milk.
This will hinder your weight loss efforts.
You might think it is innocent, but if you take three coffees on a daily basis with sugar and milk then on a monthly basis those calories really add up.
Move your body
You do not need to sweat for hours in the local gym, but it is important that you get your daily exercise.
If you don’t like to go to the fitness or walk outside, find something you would love to do and something that you can do on a frequent basis, think of: climbing, hiking, swimming, surfing, biking or playing tennis.
This is important to get your metabolism up running so that it can help your body to burn that fat.
Find something that you would love to do and gives you nothing but happiness.
So if you hate to run around in the neighborhood then you don’t do that.
Do something you like, the options are plentiful, think of tennis, swimming, biking, yoga and much more! If you do something you like then you increase your own chances of reaching your weight loss goal.
Because you are much more likely to do that thing that you love more and more.
If you on the other hand would choose running and you don’t like it, the chances are higher that you will stop with your exercise and in the end stop with your entire weigh loss journey.
