Beach season is winding down but that doesn’t mean your weight loss and fitness goals should. If you achieved your weight loss goals then you should be focusing on maintaining that for next year. If you haven’t quite started on your way to weight loss, there’s still plenty of time to make serious progress. Let’s take a look at the best fitness hacks for getting rid of those stubborn love handles.
It’s easy, it’s relaxing, and it helps with fat loss. Sauna use has been around for thousands of years but it’s becoming extremely popular these days as a weight loss method. Consistent sauna use will provide you with short term water weight loss but it will also promote long term fat burning.
If a monthly membership to a sauna seems a bit expensive, you can always suit up with a Kutting Weight sauna suit to get the same benefits.
Supplements are now common place regardless of your fitness goals. For weight loss, there are thousands of supplements to choose from but you shouldn’t let that scare you away. If you know the right ingredients to look for, then you’ll be narrowing down your search to a handful of supplements.
Key ingredients that have been proven to support fat burning are the following:
If you’re still stuck on low intensity, long duration workouts, then you need to get with the times. Scientific studies have proven that high intensity, short duration exercise is superior for weight loss goals. If you’re ready to get serious about your workouts AND save yourself a lot of time, then switch over to High Intensity Interval Training.
By performing bodyweight-based exercises in rapid succession, you are effectively increasing the intensity needed for fat burning. What’s more, the workout will only take you 15 to 20 minutes maximum.
Try these exercises. Complete each exercise’s repetitions before moving on to the next one. Once you complete the list, rest for 2 minutes then try again.
You can buy the latest supplements and fitness gear but nothing will show you more dramatic results than nutrition. 80% of the results you see come from nutrition.
Instead of pursuing a crash diet, which will set you back to square one, try eating a balanced diet that focuses on caloric restriction. Also, forget about removing macronutrients from your diet.
For example, you may thrive in your weight loss if you cut your calories down to 1,800 to 2,000. After a few months, you can decrease your caloric count by 100 to 200. Don’t drop past 1,500 calories without your doctor’s approval.
For best results, chat with a registered dietician as they will be able to factor in your medical history.
