Your 2016 weight loss plan

How to lose weight in the new year


2016… there is good news and bad news…

The bad news is that every year that passes your metabolism slows down a little bit more and it gets more difficult to burn fat and hold on to muscle. The good news is that you can do something about it. Below is your concise 2016 weight loss guide from LA Muscle. Read it, follow it and you will be sure to start 2016 in the right direction and see the weight come off in those early weeks…

Set your mind

Your mind is the driver for everything including weight loss. You need to decide that you are going to start a weight loss regime and stick to it. Find a good reason, whether it is for your own self esteem, for your spouse/partner, for health reasons or just to get ready for summer 2016. Remind yourself of this goal everywhere including your computer screen, your phone wallpaper, posters around the house and daily reminders. You need to be reminded of why your 2016 weight loss is so important to you.

What you must stop eating

You have to stop all snacking, all bad habits like eating unnecessary junk foods and justifying it in your head with reasons such as “celebration” “one off” etc etc. You also have to stop eating late at night before sleeping. This is very important. You must stop eating at least 3 hours before sleep.

Specifically you have to stop the following foods:

Sweets, pastry, chocolate, fried foods, foods high in saturated fats, fruit juices, fizzy drinks, sugary drinks, crisps, biscuits, so-called health bars, sugar, "treats".

Suggested replacement foods

Broccoli, lean meats, tuna, fish, chicken, turkey, avocados, spinach, eggs, gluten-free bread, gluten-free pasta (gluten puffs you up and makes you look fat).

A typical day’s diet:


1-2 eggs

Gluten-free bread

Lean cuts of meat

Tea/coffee - no sugar

Mid Morning snack (only if hungry)

A handful of almonds


Chicken breast, broccoli, salad


Handful of almonds


Steak and salad

Weight training

Ideally if you really want to lose weight fast, you should concentrate on cardio. Weight training can be done later when you have lost the required weight. However if you really want to do some weight training and feel like you are desperate for pumping some iron, then it is better to stick to 70% of your max and up your reps to 20-30 reps per exercise.

The role of protein drinks

If you really want to go for it and lose a lot of weight fast, then you can replace one meal a day with a good protein shake. Good means an LA Muscle shake as we know what’s in it and it is all good stuff. LA Muscle protein shakes contain no artificial additives and no added sugar - they are sweetened with Stevia, so this doesn’t affect your dieting and in fact helps you lose weight.

Replacing a meal a day is a very smart way of losing weight. A dumb way is to skip meals, something which many people do, thinking they will lose weight. When you skip a meal, your body thinks it is being starved and holds on to more fat/carbs at the next meal! So, never miss a meal if you can help it. Instead replace it with something like LA Whey Gold or Diet Whey protein.

Lifestyle changes

Get more active! People are so lazy these days. Choose stairs over lifts. Walk instead of driving. Get out and about and be more active. Tidy up your house! It is good for you and burns calories.

People have just got too used to be sedentary and if you want to see results, you must break away from this pattern. Every little bit of movement counts towards losing weight. Every bit of sitting down counts towards storing fat! Think about that!

Don’t blow up things in your head and then end up not doing them. For example, don’t be put off by going for a long walk. Do a short one and then if you feel like it, continue for longer. Little and often and if you feel like it, extend it.


The only way you are going to get rid of accumulated weight and make sure you don’t put on more is to have a regular cardiovascular exercise regime. Cardio is many things to many people. The best ones are fast walking, jogging, rowing, swimming, cycling, dancing and similar exercises. You should ideally aim for at least 45 minutes at a steady pace.

Doing cardio 4-5 times a week for at least 45 minutes will ensure you are well on your way to losing weight in 2016 and getting the body you really desire.

When nothing works

For many people, doing all the above doesn’t seem to give results or at least not quick enough for them to be motivated enough to continue. This is the biggest problem for many. People just want results fast and want it "now" and when it doesn’t happen, they just give up. Don’t be one of these people. It takes time to put weight on and it takes time to lose it. You have to persist.

Weight loss supplements are the quickest way to lose weight NOW. If you are the impatient type and want to see results right now and stay motivated enough and see enough change to keep going, then you need to pop a few weight loss pills. It’s not the end of the world! And if you have a reputable supplier like LA Muscle, then you know that what you are taking will give you incredible results, will be safe and proven to work.

Millions of people have been taking LA Muscle’s fat burning formulas over the last 19 years with excellent results. One of the reasons why even the most die-hard skeptics take LA Muscle’s formulas is the 100% guarantee given by LA Muscle - even if the whole tub is used!
