To Lose Weight or Burn Fat?
You know, it took me a while to understand that losing weight NO always results in losing fat. Scoring 10, 20 or even 30 pounds does not mean you do not have just accumulated fat in the body.
You see, losing weight refers to the total body weight … including bone, muscle, fat bodies and its position. However, would you like to actually lose weight of your bones? Do not! In addition, your bodies? Surely not … Moreover, your muscles? Definitely not.
The muscles are very important for our metabolism, if we lose body mass, we find it more difficult to remove fat. The only really want to do is lose fat – the fat that we accumulated in the buttocks, thighs, hips and waist. This fat, which endangers our health, and also makes your favorite jeans do not look as good as you wanted, especially after Christmas.
Refer to lose weight is not very reliable
Including fluid retention, the contents of your stomach, bladder and intestines… Also not consider your height or bone density … then maybe for a person 200 pounds is not at all healthy for a much taller person is perfectly normal.
The only way to know for sure what you want to lose is to measure your body fat percentage. Usually, men should have about 10 percent body fat. However, women … we should have about 15 percent body fat (remember that we are designed to give life!) Which means that we have bigger hips?
So how do you lose fat without losing so much weight? The first step is to strengthen you. Do not focus on both cardiovascular and start your routine include several resistance exercises.
Resistance exercises help you build muscle, speed up your metabolism and burn more calories.
Of course, cardio exercises are very important, but doing only cardio is not the answer you are looking to lose weight.In fact do too much cardio workout without weights; it can cause loss of muscle mass… This means that the number on the scale is much smaller, but you will have less muscle mass and less body healthy.

Remember that our goal is to be thin and strong, not thin and weak.
When you start with your resistance routines, remember that muscle is heavier than fat. Therefore, if you are a person who always monitors the balance, you may initially see you gain weight.
However, do not worry about this. Because your body fat is being replaced by muscle, and this will make you look slim and slender.
The results are amazing!
Another effective way to lose fat is to bring clean power
Choose foods that contribute to the development of your muscles as protein. Avoid starchy carbohydrates that only fill you up without adding nutrients and completely eliminates empty calories such as soft drinks and goodies.
Your diet should include mostly natural and unprocessed foods eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and eggs. These foods will strengthen and give your body the energy it needs to stay healthy.
Remember to drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated is essential to build muscles also gives us energy will surely need especially if you are exercising more.
My recommendation to you is to hide the scale when you are trying to remove grease, because it can be confused!Because if you drink water then weights regularly also affects your weight.
Keep in mind that you want to reduce the accumulated fat and no more than that. The weight makes the scale may not change much, but IF you are losing fat, your clothes and you look better you feel better inside and out.

In addition, that is what really matters right?
When I started to want to lose weight, my goal was to lose weight. I did everything I could to lower the number of my balance – reduced my calorie intake, jogged for hours and kill me in the gym.
It was awful and honestly was not effective at all … I got the results did not reflect the effort made to lose weight.
Thus, it was discovered that losing fat is more important than losing weight and started to get the results I wanted. I stopped weighing myself every day and I began to analyze how I felt. I felt healthier. I felt happier. And he had much more confidence in myself. In addition, you know what?I recess several dress sizes!
