Lifestyle Changes for Weight Loss

What is the best workout for weight loss? This is perhaps the most common question presented to fitness and weight loss professionals. The simplest answer is: the one that you enjoy the most. It sounds like a no-brainer, but consider this: How likely are you to adhere to a program that you simply don't enjoy? Let's take this one step further. When it comes to exercise adherence, studies have shown a direct correlation between convenience and compliance. In other words, if you're your fitness center is an hour's drive from your home, how likely is it that you will go on a daily basis?

So now that we've answered that question, are you interested in learning about the most effective weight loss program? It's called lifestyle change. Here are some simple things you can do to enhance your weight loss program. No equipment or gym membership is required:

  • Walk it off: If you can walk to work, great. If not, consider parking further away from your office. Go for a walk after meals. The Europeans have known about this for years.
  • Take the Necessary Steps to Burn Fat: In other words, get out of the elevator and on to the staircase. Walking steps also builds beautiful butts!
  • Go Ride a Bike: It saves on gas, burns fat and is eco-friendly.
  • Lose the Remote Control: Yes, we're only talking about a few calories here. But lying on the couch with the remote leads to a generally lazy attitude.
  • Fidget: Don't laugh! The mayo clinic has found that people who engage in "non-exercise activity thermogenesis" such as fidgeting and postural changes burn more calories throughout the day than folks who remain immobile.
