Gina here from Home Bodies!
Home Bodies recently launched it's '13 in 13' weight loss challenge. I thought I'd share with you some of the tips I sent along to contest participants who are looking to lose weight in the new year.
Also, there is a link to a Home Workout you can perform with little to no equipment. You will see some different exercises that you've probably never seen before. It's also a great routine you can do at the hotel while traveling. Free weights at hotel gyms are becoming a rarer and rarer commodity!
Home Workout routine with little to no equipment. Bet you haven't seen all these exercises!
Here are some basic useful pointers for those looking to lose weight in the new year:
Most important factor: Diet
--Try to trade off carbohydrate for protein whenever possible. Make most of your carbohydrate come from fruits and vegetables.
--Minimal to no alcohol
--Reduce portion sizes
--Pick a 'cutoff' point after which you stop eating at night. Stick to it.
Next important factor: Cardio
--However much cardio you did before, increase your length of workout, your frequency of workout, or how hard you work. Preferably all 3!
Next important factor: Strength training
--Over the long run, strength training helps with fat loss tremendously, but in the short term, it doesn't burn as many calories as cardio and is not quite as important.
--Perform full body strength training 2-3x per week.
--Reducing rest periods between sets and increasing difficulty of the exercises will cause strength training to burn more fat.
Important Factor: Supplements and Water
--Supplement with Omega-3
--Consume 8 or more cups of water each day
--Consume 4 cups of green tea each day
