“The Keys to Mini Skirt Season Weight Loss”
Dietitian Jayson Hunter
With summer quickly approaching women are breaking out their Mini Skirts and hoping they fit. Here are some of my best rapid fat loss tips for fitting into your mini skirts.
Losing weight fast is actually a simple process, but simple is not necessarily easy. There is effort involved.
Here are three weight loss keys for women to look sexy in a Mini Skirt:
Women can lose weight just by following a nutrition plan on its own, but very few succeed at it and it takes much longer than when women eat properly and exercise as well. And not just getting on a treadmill for 30 minutes every other day. Though some women may lose weight this way it is not the most efficient use of your time. Nor does it maximize the ability to burn calories if you want to fit into that mini skirt.
The most effective way to lose fat is by strength training or some type of interval training utilizing strength training and cardiovascular exercises. A properly designed program can burn more overall calories in 20 minutes than 40 minutes on a treadmill. Also, the X factor in all this is that women will burn more calories per minute hours after they finished strength training because of the EPOC (Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption) effect. Static exercise on a treadmill doesn't produce this X factor. Did you know that research shows that interval strength training can elevate your metabolism for up to 40 hours after you complete your workout.
This means that your metabolism is elevated all the time 24 hours a day if you exercise every day or every other day. Now that is what you want to look great in that mini skirt.
This is a good thing, a very good thing. You see speeding up your metabolism is the key to losing weight quickly and keeping it off for a lifetime. As you get older your metabolism naturally starts slowing down. Stopping this natural metabolism slowdown will keep you from gaining that 5-10 pounds every year.
2) Keep a food journal
You will be amazed at what you consume and not even realize you did it until you write it down and reflect back on the day. Keeping a food log is critical to your successful trek of fitting into your mini skirts because if modifications need to be made you are able to evaluate and analyze. If weight loss changes aren't happening like you had hoped the answer can usually be found in the food and or exercise journal.
Make sure you record the quantities of what you eat and what you drink. Many people forget that there are calories and sometimes lots of calories in what you drink. Review your food journal at the end of every day and see what you did well and what you need to work more on. Make sure you note the changes you need to make for the next day so you can re-evaluate what you improved on the next day. This is a very important step to ensuring mini skirt success.
3) Follow the 90% rule
If you can follow a weight loss plan 90% of the time then that is enough for you to be successful. Women who find themselves breaking the rules more than 90% of the time then the chance of being successful with weight loss is not as likely. Your chances of failing increase significantly. For most women this means you are allowed to cheat on your meals 4 times per week if you are eating 5 meals a day.
These are just 3 weight loss keys to looking great in that Mini Skirt this summer. Start implementing these mini skirt weight loss keys and before you know it you will be looking great and getting comments on how great you look in that mini skirt.
