Everyone wants to be thinner, but not everyone knows how to lose weight. They may know in a general sense. After all, the basics of weight loss are fairly simple. You eat healthily, and you make sure to get plenty of exercises. However, the devil is in the details (if you bought the Venus Factor System, or how they called in Spanish el sistema venus then this is gonna interest you a lot).
For example, what is “eating healthy”? Obviously, you want not to eat a lot of snack cakes and more vegetables, but is that enough? Is that bean burrito healthy, or not? Exercise is great, but what kind of exercise should you do? How much of it is necessary? What helps you lose weight, and what just makes you work harder without doing any good?
The unfortunate truth is that each person is a bit different. There are some general rules, but by and large, there’s no one size fits all diet and exercise plan. The best you can do is start with the basics, and work your way from there.
The basics are, thankfully, fairly easy. The food you cook yourself is always going to be better than pre-packaged food. This is because you can more carefully control what ingredients you use, and how much. You also want to avoid foods with too much fat and too many carbs.
Eat fewer potatoes and less bread, and eat more carrots, for example. Bread may be difficult to give up, so you might try eating fruit for breakfast instead of cereal. Things like that will go a long way.
As for exercise, the real truth is that it’s less about what kind you do and more about doing it regularly. You shouldn’t focus too much on cardiovascular exercise, however. This is because too much cardio might make your body go into shock, thinking that it’s running out of food and energy. This would cause your body to hang on to its fat cells, to fuel it during the long time when there’s no food.
So make sure you’re lifting weights along with the cardio. Weight lifting forces your body to use up that energy, which makes it burn fat.
Other than that, weight loss is mostly a matter of trial and error. Eat less, exercise more, and you’ll start to see results. You may not see them immediately, but doctors say that losing more than a few pounds a week is unhealthy. So just stick with it, and you’ll begin to see results.
