Checkout the below tips to help reach your target weight and start shedding body and belly fat from today......

Change your lifestyle
If you want to lose fat and keep it off, make changes that you can live with indefinitely. Don't over-restrict calories, and find an exercise programme that adequately challenges you, provides progression and offers sufficient variety so that you can maintain it for the future. The key here is not to set yourself up to failure.

Drink More Water

Water is the medium in which most cellular activities take place, including the transport and burning of fat. In addition, water is zero calories so by drinking plenty of water it will help keep you fuller and eat less. It is best to drink around 2-3 litres of water a day and to keep a bottle of water with you at all times. Water helps to detoxify the body and keep you regular throughout.

Do more cardio

In essence to burn fat you need to burn calories and cardio is the quickest method to deploy for getting rid of calories. Try 4-5 sessions a week for around 45 minutes per session for best results. Those who want to take it a bit further, try doing your cardio in a fasted state first thing in the morning. This will attack fat quickly and help get rid of any stubborn fat which may be holding you back. Running, rowing, skipping, bike riding, swimming and using the stepper at the gym are some great options.

Cardio for weight loss is crucial

Consume fewer calories than you burn
Quite simply if you are burning more calories then you are taking in, your body will have no option but to lose weight. Try and keep active as much as you can and by going to the gym 3-4 times a week to help burn calories whilst increasing your metabolic rate.

Reduce Starchy Carbs
Consuming too many starch foods such as potatoes, rice, pasta and breads, provides your body with more than it needs for energy and glycogen stores; anything left over will be stored as fat. Limit total starch servings per day to 3-5, where a serving size is one cup of pasta, rice or sliced potato. Later in the day, you want to stay away from carbs and stick to lean proteins and vegetables.

Gradually reduce your carbs

Eat a full balanced breakfast
People are under the impression that if they skip breakfast that it will help with weight loss. This is simply not true, your body has been starving all night long and it needs nutrients to rebuild itself. If you fail to feed your body your metabolism will likely slow down and anything you eat will have a higher chance of converting to body-fat. As you will be more hungry during lunch you may tend to eat more which will lead to more calorie consumption hence weight gain. Always aim to have sufficient protein (30-40 grams) a complex carb like oatmeal and a piece of fruit to start your day off right. If you do not have the time then grab a meal replacement like LA Muscle Diet Whey which will provide the body the essential nutrients needed.

Limit Sugar Consumption
Taking in simple carbs (sugars) right after a workout replenishes muscle and liver glycogen stores. However taking in excess sugar consumed at other times will be stored as fat. Replace sugary snacks and beverages with something more healthy like a handful of nuts.

Rotate your carbs
Rotate between low and high carb days where one day you will aim for around one of carbs per pound of body weight for 3-5 days (these will be lower days) and doubling that the next 1-2 days. This will shock the body and rev up your metabolism.

Drink Black Coffee before a workout

Black coffee has virtually zero calories and will provide your body with energy and caffeine to help you perform better during your workouts and burn more calories during exercise. Skip the cream and sugar and try to avoid drinking coffee at any other times of the day.

Avoid drastic calorie reductions
This will do no favours to your body whatsoever as your metabolism will slow down drastically meaning that any foods you eat will store as body fat and lead to weight gain. Cut calories smartly, reducing calorific consumption steadily and weekly whilst getting in your exercises.

Eat smaller meals a day regularly
Dieters often decrease the number of daily mails in an attempt to reduce calories, this is a big no-no. If you eat six meals a day versus three with the same total calories, you can lose more fat as more meals born calories by increasing thermogenesis (the production of heat in the body) as well as increasing your metabolism.

Take CLA
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a great supplement to take as a fat burner whilst helping to preserve lean muscle tissue. Take LA Muscle Patented CLA Sculpt with a two month on one month off cycle to reap the rewards and see the fat melt away.

Consider Fat Burning Supplements

Fat burning supplements can give your fat loss a boost and help get rid of stubborn fat along with a good cardio and diet programme. LA Muscle Fat Stripper is highly effective for tackling stubborn fat from the body and is suitable for both men and women.

Fat burning supplements

Increase Vegetable Consumption
Vegetables are dense with nutrition, meaning they pack maximum nutrition value with minimal calories, leaving you more full on fewer calories. They also help keep your digestive system regular, which is imperative where weight loss is concerned. Aim to consume five servings of day for best results and helping you boost your fibre intake.

Consume 24-30 grams of Fibre a day
Fibre helps lower insulin levels and absorbs water, taking up more space in your stomach helping to fight off hunger pangs too. Fibre consumption also helps keep digestion healthy and keeps you regular daily. Fibre rich foods include bran cereal, oatmeal, wholemeal bread and beans.

Eliminate Junk Food
Junk food is food that offers almost nothing but calories and empty calories too. They are usually loaded with salt and fat which will do your goals no favours at all.

Eat the proper amount of protein
Try taking in 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of body weight. This will help to provide sufficient amino acids to maintain muscle mass, while keeping your total calorie count under control. LA Whey is a great way to boost your protein consumption as it contains over 49 grams of protein per pound of body weight.

Eat more healthy fats

Healthy fats take longer to break down in your stomach and help control blood-sugar levels, leaving you more satisfied and reducing your cravings. Include avocados, peanut butter, fatty fish, olives, nuts and seeds and oils such as olive and flaxseed.

Healthy fats

Eat cheat foods for flavour

If you love a particular food, you shouldn't prohibit yourself from eating it. And when you do eat cheat foods, eat them for flavour. For example don't eat a whole pizza, have one or two slices and savour the flavour and enjoy it. One or two cheat foods a week will not set you back from reaching your target weight.
