What would be the single most effective trick to losing weight effectively? There’s a difference between losing “weight” and losing body fat. When we focus on just “losing weight” we tend to get mushy and squishy. I don’t know anyone that wants to be described as mushy. Most people want to get a little firmer.
Slow and steady wins the race
The goal would be to lose 1 to 2 pounds of body fat per week. This depends on how much body fat you have to lose. You want to make sure you’re losing body fat and not muscle. Losing muscle will slow down your metabolism and make you squishy. Problem areas for ladies tend to be the belly, Lower back and the backs of the arms. For men it’s “man boobs” love handles and belly.
Be sure it’s just body fat
Have you body fat tested for free at any health club you belong to. Check it no more than once every 2 to 3 weeks. There should be a steady decline and body fat even if your weight doesn’t change. Your clothes should start to fit better your overall size should come down and you should begin to look the way you want to look.
