  1. Reevaluate Your Diet

Diet makes up eighty percent of your weight loss and exercise is only twenty percent which shows why this is our number tip for losing weight. The best thing you can do for yourself is to decrease any intake of processed foods, sugar, salt, alcohol, and overly starchy foods and replacing them with foods that are high in protein and healthy fats. These will not only keep you fuller for longer but they will also give you more energy to get through the day.

  1. Drink More Water

This is a tip that most people know but a lot don’t realize how much it really affects your fat and overall body appearance. Your body cannot function properly without being hydrated and even being dehydrated a little bit can affect your metabolism and your body’s ability to burn fat. Drinking water can also make you feel full for longer which will help you cut down on unnecessary calories which will give your body less fat to store.

  1. Switch Up Your Workouts

Having a good mix in your workouts is the most important thing when you are trying to lose fat. Strength training and cardio should be the foundation of your workout and then pilates, yoga, and things similar to that can be added to loosen up muscles and target certain areas. A right combination of weight training workouts with cardio exercises along with a proper diet will be the ultimate body fat loss solution that is customized for every client here at shape it Fitness gym. We welcome you to a complimentary session with one of our trainers to give you a specialized program that fits your specific needs.
