How To Reduce Belly Fat & Body Weight – Part 2

Let me be frank. To Reduce Belly Fat is not that easy but at the same time, it is not something which is impossible too.

Stand in front of the mirror daily and tell to yourself the below sentences,

  • I can do it. I am the best.
  • Nothing comes easy.
  • Everything is possible if handled correctly.
  • Nothing is difficult if we practice.

There are certainly smaller inexpensive items that are worth buying when you want to reduce belly fat and excess weight. You can find more details on my previous article “Things that can help you Reduce Belly Fat & Body Weight – Part 1” via the link mentioned at the bottom of this article.

How To Get Rid Of Belly Fat & Body Weight?

  • Set your Goal. Ensure that you remember your goal not only by mind but also by the heart.
  • Sleep well during the night.
  • Track your body weight every week.
  • Do not cut on your favorite food abruptly. Instead, tweak your intake a bit slowly. Be cautious on what you consume.

Tip: If you are a lover of Meals / Biriyani, instead of consuming them daily, shorten it by eating them once or twice a week. Eating ice creams once in a while won’t make a big difference on your weight unless it’s combined with cheeseburgers, popcorns, and pizzas.

  • Consume more healthy liquids so that your stomach is not empty.

Tip: 1-2 Tender coconuts or 1-2 glasses of Buttermilk between your breakfast and lunch would help in a great way to stay away from a heavy meal during lunch.

  • Detox your body so that your digestive system is normal.

Tip: Consuming a ‘Mother’ Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with water regularly can do a great job.

  • Fix a comfortable time and stick to it so that you can hit the gym or walk/jog or dance. Practice regularly without fail.

Tip: Train at least for five days in a week. Give your body rest during weekends. Listen to your favorite music tracks while workout at the gym.

  • Do not jump into spending a lot of money on buying a lot of expensive fitness equipment.

Tip: Look for used Dumbells, Plates & Bar. Buy a good pair walking/running shoes and hit the road instead of investing on a Treadmill.

  • Consider taking stairs instead of an elevator whenever possible and if you do not have any knee issues.

Tip: Walk Straight and in a zig-zag manner while climbing stairs if possible so you won’t feel bored. Close your mouth and breathe through your nose only.

  • Motivate yourself instead of waiting for others to motivate you.

Tip: Have a copy of those motivational movie clippings or songs on your cell phone which you can hear while or before the workout.

  • Make a list of food items you love and the frequency in which you consume them. See if you can replace any food item which has high-calorie content with another food item which has got lower calories.

Tip: Prepare 3-4 food items planner and stick to those. You can even shuffle the items between them.

  • Practice abdomen exercises like Plank and Crunches.

Tip: Refer youtube videos to learn how to do plank and crunches. Focus on the basic rather than advanced.

  • Do not eat heavy lunch while at the office. If you could not resist for some reason ensure that you drink plenty of hot water after the meal.

Tip: Stand and work instead of sitting and yawning. Drink plenty of hot water after the meal.

  • Stick to a healthy snack instead of Bajji & Vada in the evening.

Tip: Try a Veg Grilled Sandwich or Boiled chana dal or similar. Munch on dark chocolates instead of regular ones.

  • Skip carbonated drinks and reduce Coffee/Tea intake.

Tip: Instead of a carbonated drink, try lime soda with sweet/salt. That way you can get rid of artificial sweeteners and chemicals. The best would be to drink hot water.

  • Follow early dinner technique. Stick to lighter meal for Dinner.

Tip: Try to close your light dinner before 9.30 PM if you go to bed normally around 11 PM.

Loaves of bread, Fruit Juices, and fresh vegetables.

Always think big but do not overlook smaller things which can help you achieve that big thing. The best example is – When we finally set our goal to reduce belly fat and excess weight, below are some of the major things which cross our minds besides we forget that the smaller things that help lose belly fat.

  1. An automatic Treadmill.
  2. An Elliptical or a Cross Trainer.
  3. An annual membership at a branded fitness center.
  4. A circuit machine and more.

All the above-mentioned items would greatly help us in our weight loss struggle if used wisely. But there are few activities which can replace most of the equipment mentioned above but deliver the same result without making a hole in our wallet.

Remember, we do have few more important smaller items which are a must have while fighting against excess weight and belly fat. Without these things that help lose belly fat, it is certainly difficult at least according to me if you are working towards your weight loss.

Must have items during Weight Loss program:

  1. A Water Bottle with a level indicator on it.
  2. A bathroom weighing scale.
  3. An inch tape to measure waistline especially when you work towards the reduction of belly fat.
  4. A Planner or Diary and a writing pen to keep track of your body weight.
  5. A good pair of walking/running shoes.
  6. Few pairs of Ankle socks.
  7. A sweat absorber or a face towel.
  8. A jump or skipping rope and a twister machine.
  9. Few pairs of comfortable inner wears to avoid rubbing of our inner thighs while walking / running.
  10. A quality Wired / Bluetooth earphone to listen to music or similar while workout.
  11. A Mother Apple Cider Vinegar.
  12. A list of movies, clippings or songs or an audio file which motivated/motivates you. Save those on your phone and watch/listen regularly.
  13. A thermal water bottle for hot water especially to use while at the office.

Healthy Body + Healthy Mind = Healthy Life

Weight Loss and Diet – My week 2 (Skipped Walking In The Morning)

Weight Loss and Diet – My week 2 (Skipped Walking In The Morning)

Due to an unavoidable family task, I had to forgo my morning walk after 4 days which I had planned for my Weight Loss. Honestly, I had tried to advance my morning walk time instead of 4.30 – 5.30 AM to 4.00 to 5.00 AM. But, stopped regretting once I had realized that by advancing the time, I would be doing a grave mistake.

It is very important that our body gets enough rest so that the metabolism would work normally. For our body to respond well to the efforts we take as a part of reducing fat, our metabolism should work normally. There are proven papers written on the topic “How many hours of sleep is required for an adult”.  Some articles say it as 6 hours and some other say it as 8 hours which will again lead to a debate.

Here is my new tweaked Weight Loss schedule:

I go to sleep between 11.00 PM – 12.00 AM and wake up at 6.00 AM which gives me at least 6 hours sleep. After taking my Thyroxine pill of dose 75 mcg, I take a break of 2 hours to get my kid ready for school. At 8.00 AM, I hit my apartment’s minimal equipped gym which has got the below items.

1. An Elliptical Machine

2. A Cycling Machine

3. All in one workout machine

4. One pair of 4 KGS & 10 KGS dumbbell

Weight Loss

 

In the beginning, I thought that I would join a well known fitness center. But, felt bad when I thought about the money and time I need to spend for it. Moreover, it would not be wise to seek help outside when I can hit my apartment’s gym without spending money.

Yes, not much of the equipment’s we see in a fitness center are available at the apartment’s gym. But, when I can’t use this then how am I going to use the vast range of equipment’s that are available in a fitness center?

To tell about my Weight Loss workout routine –

I work on the elliptical for 30 minutes inclusive of both forward as well as backward motion. This is done with few two to three small breaks in between to sip water so that I stay hydrated.

I do want to lift weights once after I complete the elliptical part but I am still working out on how to use the available minimal types of equipment. Especially for my Arms, Chest, Shoulders, Legs and Lat.

I hope that I can make use of the available equipment’s for most of the body parts. Now, I am learning “how” with the help of google and YouTube.

The below quote by many bodybuilders is not a myth.
 
The combination of Diet with Cardio and Weights will have a great impact on our weight loss struggle.
 
Stay tuned…

 

Weight Loss and Diet – My day 1

Thinking of how to reduce weight without sacrificing your food intake?

Oh Yeah… I need to admit that I am one among the many who are fighting against weight loss in this world.

I am familiar with some of the ways to reduce the body weight of which I have seen success. But, those approaches were at the cost of punishing my taste buds.

This time, it is different as I wanted to reduce my excess body weight and get rid of the fluffy face without a drastic change in my food intake. I am a food lover, so to resist myself from a tasty good food is not a good option to achieve weight loss.

Being a food lover, to resist me from a tasty good food is not an approach via which I wanted to achieve weight loss.

My Current Weight:

Today,  May 30th, 2017 @ 6.50 AM, I weigh 75.5 kilograms. I don’t rely much on my bathroom scale but I consider the scale by calculating the final weight based on +/- 5 kilograms. To ignite the drive in me, let me close it saying I am 76 kilograms.

Weight Loss

You know it better. By just having a thought we cannot reduce body weight.

So, today I woke up at 4 AM in the morning and started my first-day walk. With a water bottle in my hand. I had clocked 6.2 kilometers in an hour.

Reached back home and closed my first-day routine with 2 sets of hopping using a jump rope or a skipping rope. Heard that a jump rope if properly used can do wonders and help us get rid of the fat belly. I do own a belly too :), you can see that if you notice the above snapshot closely.

The reason for writing this article is to,

  1. Track my weight on a regular basis.
  2. As I had written about it now on my blog I can ensure that I do not cheat myself.
  3. To share the happy moments and issues faced during this routine.
  4. To play a little role in motivating others fellow friends who are finding themselves in my current situation trying to achieve their weight loss goal.

As I had mentioned in the beginning of this post, I won’t be following a strict diet routine. But, would be tweaking my food intake by reducing the frequency of consuming rice to achieve weight loss.

Stay Tuned, will keep you all posted.
