Everyone wants to know what the secret to losing weight is. Well, different methods work for different people but if you want a quick and dirty version to weight loss, try getting rid of carbohydrates and dairy products from your diet, going hard in boot camp, and adding lots of vegetables to your plate. We promise, you’ll see results.
Cut Out Carbs and Dairy
A big part of weight gain comes from carbohydrates and dairy products. You might even notice bloating and feel more hungry than usual. That’s because of the extra water weight, refined sugars, breads, starches, cheeses, yogurt, milk and more. Staying away from these products will get you on your way to taking off those unwanted pounds. According to Health Ambition, “many people who cut refined grains and sugars from their diet see significant weight loss, as much as 10 pounds in the first week, without counting calories”.
Go to Burn in Boot Camp Class
You’re paying money to attend boot camp so don’t just show up and do the workout halfheartedly. Give it your all while you’re there for 60 minutes. Train your body to go hard and then go home. In a Gauge Fitness class, you can burn up to 550 calories in each session if you put the work in. So, the next time you choose to walk when your instructor tells you to run, pick up the pace and run! This will help you in the long run.
Get Your Veggie Intake
Every time you eat, there should be something plant-based on your plate. As a matter of fact, we encourage you to include a bigger portion of vegetables as opposed to a bigger slab of meat when you’re sitting down for dinner. Vegetables are a win-win for your body because they are low in fat and high in vitamins and fiber. You can’t go wrong when you include carrots, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, spinach (and more!) in your diet.
So, don’t turn to a magic pill to meet your dietary needs. Try these 3 recommendations first and tackle your weight loss in a healthy way.
