When people want to lose weight most of the time they do the wrong exercises. This is because most of them do not know how the body burns fat and because they get bad advice from people who do not know it either.
Most mistakes people make are:
1. Bad diet
People think they're on a diet but it really is not a healthy diet at all. Like those famous fad diets such as low-carb or low-fat do not work in the long run.
It's true that you lose weight in the beginning that's because most often you lose lean muscle but that makes you gain more weight in the long run because your body lowers your metabolism.
To be honest you should not even be in a gym if your diet is not right yet. Get your diet right eat healthy foods do not lower your calories take too much because you will make it even harder for yourself to burn fat.
When your diet is right it's time to begin working out but make sure you do the right workouts
2. Wrong exercises
Even though there's a chance you have a proper diet and eat the right foods if you do the wrong exercises you will not lose any weight either.
In order to stimulate the fat-burning hormones and increase the resting metabolic rate in your body you need to work out more muscle groups in your body.
That means no ab specific exercises most people do when they want to lose stomach fat.
No cardio because these machines stabilize the weights for you so your body core does not have to do anything which is also bad for your spell.
Now do not think you really need to go to a gym there are plenty of exercises you can do at home, of course you need to get yourself some equipment at home but that does not have to cost you more than a membership for the gym.
If you want to burn fat and have a lean stomach and probably a six pack there are 2 things you need to know.
1. You need to know how, and when to eat.
2. You need to know the proper exercises that burn fat like crazy.
So what should be the right way to eat than? As first do not lower your caloric intake for more than 1000 calories of your normal intake, that means if your normal intake is 3500 do not go below 2500.
If you do your body will think it's starving and it'll lower your metabolism and store more fat for energy reserves.
Eat 5/6 small meals a day.
Healthy foods you can eat are fruits and vegetables, sweet potatoes, whole unrefined grains, beans, organic meat and nuts.
Proper workouts you must do to get lean are full-body multi-joint workouts and especially weight lifting.
These exercises train more muscle groups of your body and therefore increase your resting metabolic rate high enough so that your body burns more calories than you would with single joint exercises training specific muscles like ab exercises.
