Fat Loss Tips For Women!

How come so few reach their goals and achieve that lean look if it's so damn easy to get ripped? Learn the secrets of fat loss tips for women!

Everyone knows what to do to lose fat, right? Then how come so few reach their goals and achieve that lean look if it's so damn easy to get ripped?

I could tell you the very same things as everybody else does, but I definitely won't. It's not only about the perfect diet plan and the right amount of exercise, the best supplements and so on; the most important part of a fat-loss strategy is your mental approach to it.

First, let's suppose you do the following things already:

  • You do at least 6 cardio workouts of 40-60 minutes per week, preferably pre-breakfast.
  • You eat 5-8 small meals per day, emphasizing proteins, healthy fats and vegetables.
  • You don't skip on the carbs post-workout. (Take in 0.5 gram per pound of bodyweight - see the calculator below.)
  • You get at least 6 hours of sleep almost every night.

If those are in order, you can get better results using the following tips.

Getting Through The Hardest Of Times

Some days are tougher than others, especially when it's about dieting. I'm talking about those annoying moments when you ask yourself over and over again why you're doing all the cardio and for what?!

You feel so sorry for yourself, thinking everyone else is better off, you're watching all 'normal' people eating ice cream every other hour, and you wish so much you were one of those lucky souls.

"Motivate yourself to stick to your plan with whatever means you can use."

What you must do is to motivate yourself to stick to your plan with whatever means you can use. A lean photo of myself is what motivates me.

Most chicks would kill for a gorgeous, fit body like this, but they believe a walk in the park will do the trick. Even if you told them it's a bit harder, they wouldn't believe you, since they don't want to face the truth.

You Never Diet, You Follow A Perfect Diet Plan

When I need to drop a couple of pounds, I never say I'm dieting; the mere word 'dieting' gives me the worst cravings imaginable! I just want to run to the supermarket, buying chocolate, fish sticks and other fattening stuff.

I tell myself that I'm allowed to eat whatever I like, including ice cream and candy. And lots of it too. But, I must stand the consequences if I'm going to eat like a starving horse.

I know that by falling for the temptation will make me fat and puts me farther away from my dream body. Than I also take into account how satisfied I will be after eating the chocolate and fish sticks.

I know it won't be for long, maybe only for a couple of hours before I start to regret it. And then it's already too late; I have just annihilated ten hours of cardio for what; a bit of chocolate?

Show It Off

There's nothing as pleasant as watching your muscles pump up during a workout session, so don't always wear your whole wardrobe at the same time; let yourself see the pay off in the gym's mirrors and you'll feel so much stronger.

Don't care about jealous people who blame you for just showing off. If they cannot stand perceiving a great physique, they probably have some major psychological problems to solve. You must get used to those pessimistic people who hate everybody who more resembles their ideal phsyique than they do themselves.

How To Get Through The Boring Cardio

Ok, there you go again...Sick and tired of the stairmaster already? Hey, you've only done it 40 times this month! Do a list on topics you can think about when working out. This is my list:

  • First, I repeat to myself why I'm doing this boring chore. I mean, it's not always a lot of fun, mounting the step machine at 4:30 a.m., and I must not forget why it's of such great importance that I do it anyway.

  • I tell myself this is the very last workout I have to do for my whole life. If I get this one done, I will always look good, always be fit and happy. (Yes, I know it's a lie, but my psyche is so easily duped!)

  • I promise myself that I can eat a whole chocolate bar (the biggest one of course!) for breakfast if I only do the cardio. This is a big lie once again, but it doesn't matter since when I'm done, it would be so unnecessary eating something that makes my efforts meaningless.

  • I visualize my ripped phsyique, every comments on my lines and how impressed people will be once I enter the stage.

  • Listen to the very best cardio music; Irish folk music! I promise you will get totally energized!

  • Visualize what the perfect feature of you in a major muscle mag like Flex or MuscleMag would be like. What questions would they ask you? What kind of pictures? What would the article lead to concerning sponsors, feedback, and model contracts?

Why Is It Critical To Visualize Your Success?

Well, as you're the one who's in charge of your goals and dreams, you cannot let yourself wonder about whether you've got what it takes or not. Who's to judge that? Well, you and you only.

Don't listen to those telling you it's impossible. They don't know, they just think they do. Of course, hear people out, but be careful about what they tell you, and what you tell yourself. Remember, you are what you believe you are! Period.

Cardio is great. I don't know if I would quit visualize a chocholate bar as a motivation though. There are great things i found you can eat before and after workouts which is great.

Does anyone follow IIFYM? And while you are cutting do you restrict carbs or increase them? Every where I look it says low carbs. But for the last couple weeks I have basically stalled in my weight and fat loss.
