If I Was Overweight This is What I’d Do

Do you know how hard it is to burn 1000 calories? Well If you work your butt off on a treadmill you may burn 100 calories in 10 minutes.  That’s 600 calories per hour. So to burn 1000 you’re looking at 100 minutes of hard work.

But do you know how easy it is to take in 1000 calories? You could probably put down 1000 calories or more in your car in 10 minutes or less with one stop to Wendy’s or even Starbuck’s (those muffins are huge and the drinks can contain up to 600 calories or more by themselves).

Here’s my point?

Diet is far more important to your fat loss program than exercise.

You can’t out-train a bad diet, unless you’re a genetic freak or seventeen years old boy. In either case, I doubt you’d be reading this…

So in my quest to lose 30 pounds – if I ever had to do that – the second thing I’d do after joining a fitness boot camp where I could meet like minded people for support and burn up 750 calories in under an hour, would be to follow a proven fat loss nutrition program.

The right diet can cure belly fat.

When you join Workout Quest you get such a proven nutrition program. No thinking, just follow the plan. It doesn’t get any simpler than that.

If I was trying to lose belly fat right now – Here’s one more thing I would do:

I like to make a “game” out of eating better. I know that competition mentality works best for me.

So each day, I’d follow the nutrition program and make baby steps to eating better. If I had 2 servings of vegetables yesterday, I’d try for 2.5 servings today.

If I stuck to my plan for 75% of my meals last week, I’d aim for 80% (or higher) this week.

I’d be tracking my results and identifying what worked for me and what didn’t. And I’d make changes – and take baby steps to improve each week. I’d keep a food journal and show my trainer every day so he/she could help me improve in areas I hadn’t thought of.

If you’re not improving, you’re body is going to stay the same. As I tell my daughter in soccer, if you get a little bit better each week, by the end of the season you’re going to be a whole lot better.

Research from Dr. Brian Wansink, a nutrition researcher from Cornell University, found that when people try to lose weight, they have better success with making small changes, rather than big changes.

Making small changes allows you to achieve small victories, building your confidence and getting the success snowball rolling.

It’s a very simple approach, but extremely effective.
