I Do Not Know Where To Begin A Fat Loss Regimen!

I am going to share with you a diet and training regimen for fat loss. This will lay out in detail a sample meal plan and training routine. Check it out.

Fat Loss Regimen
Part One

Beginning a fat loss regime can be overwhelming. There are an unlimited amount of training philosophies and diet programs to confuse you. What works for someone can have quite the opposite effect on another person. It can be an extremely frustrating process. You almost have to get your Ph.D. in Fat Loss to understand the healthiest and efficient way to look lean and feel energetic!

In part one of this article, I will share with you a sample nutrition program that has worked for myself, my clients, friends and family members. If anyone tells you that losing fat and getting a lean physique is easy, then they are full of it!

I will tell you right away it takes hard work to change habits. But with the right program for you, motivation, and support, you can reach your goals and stay there.

If you have good habits to begin with, then making minor changes should not be challenging. For those who live off fast food and their only hobby is watching television all day long, then this program will be much more difficult.

I do not recommend anyone starting this program in full force. Gradually starting into the program will help keep you on track and let your body get use to the proper fuel being utilized. Keep in mind that this program is more based on what you put into your body and is not obsessing on counting calories.

Fat Loss Regimen
Part Two

Now that you have a sample nutrition program to follow, I will now provide a sample workout program that will go along with your fat-loss program.

I am a strong advocate on body weight exercises and the use of kettlebells for fat loss. You don't need a fancy $4000 piece of cardio equipment to get the job done. In fact, these exercises will get you the toned look that most people want. (Not just the skinny, flabby look that you get from hours of cardio and no weight training.) And you will also get stronger!

All of these exercises provided below can be done with a dumbbell. I strongly encourage the use of kettlebells, however, because of the way the weight is distributed and the use of a handle. I have seen people over and over again get great results with this Russian tool.
