Reviving Resolutions: The 21 Day Diet Plan for February

Let me ask you a question, how are those resolutions going? Remember when you promised yourself you’d lose 5 pounds a week till you reached your goal weight?  Maybe your resolve was to quit smoking or drinking and eat more vegetables and fruit for the next few months.  Or perhaps to cut out soda and fizzy drinks and stick to drinking more water and natural juices.  But I wonder how many of you stuck to any of those goals, I’m guessing less than 5 percent did.

The problem is that the New Year has so much pressure and expectations.  We start the year off guns blazing and work out constantly or cut out all the junk from out diets in quest of getting a nice lean body for spring break.  But then life happens. We get invited to social gatherings or parties and temptation is everywhere.  That is why I love the 21 day diet plan. Because most people can’t commit to a three or six month plan, but the idea of only being healthy or having to be healthy for 21 days is very feasible for most people.  The plan is simple. You drink a lot of water to keep your body staying and feeling hydrated and replenishing lost fluids after exercise which is also recommended.  During the 21 day diet plan, you’ll also have to cut out sugar and most carbohydrates.

You will be getting your energy from other sources of food like fruits that are low in sugar and in vegetables.  You’ll start to eat a lot more beans, legumes and lean protein sources. That means cutting out a lot of red mean and sticking to either lean sources of red meat or mainly fish, chicken and turkey.  My favorite part of the 21 day diet plan is the smoothies and green drinks.  They might look strange, but they taste just delicious. They help replenish your body from anything you have lost and also help build muscle and burn fat.  By drinking a lot of water, you will also be less inclined to eat foods.  The purpose of going on this diet for 21 days is to prevent yourself from being addicted to carbs and sugar.  It takes 21 days to break a habit and once you do, you can focus on building your strength, losing weight and getting in the best shape of your life.

If you want to lose even more weight, you might consider adding in a light exercise plan where you focus on cardio and weight lifting. Make sure to warm up before exercising and do a stretch, yoga or cool down afterwards to avoid over-training.  And drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. 🙂

21 day fix to a New You

Have you ever wanted to lose weight? Have you ever works out and eat healthily and not lost weight at all and when what you are doing wrong? If the answer is yes either of these questions then perhaps you need to find any weight loss program that will work for you. I love the 21 day fix because it helps me lose 20 pounds in only three weeks. 21 day fix is a three-week workout program in which you do one workout DVD that lasts for 30 minutes each day. Every workout is different because there are seven different workout to follow, one for each day of the week.
Every day you will target a different muscle or area of the body for example the body, lower body, stomach muscles, and strength training exercises so that he will build muscle in addition to burning fat.

Many people only focus on cardio-based workouts when they are trying to lose weight because they think that lifting weights cause them to fall or gain more weight. This however is an urban legend. Women will not. Unless they take types of supplements in order to bulk up.
However if you do the 21 day fix you will be working every area of your body and you will be burning in addition to losing weight my favorite part about the 21 day fix extreme workout is the eating plan and you must use the 21 day fix container sizes because it makes eating and losing weight simple. All you have to do is select the amount of color containers you have to eat each day to not go over that amount. There is no calorie counting and no counting points. You simply have to fill up the containers for the amount that you are allowed to eat each day and do not go over that amount. That will keep your caloric intake under 1500 cal for example so that you will lose 2 pounds per week consistently.

When you complete three weeks of the 21 day fix and lose up to 10 pounds, you may decide to do another three weeks of the program to lose even more weight. This is not short-term solution. Losing weight with the 21 day fix is natural and healthy and you can repeat the process over and over again until you get your desired results you if you decide that you want to try something different and you want to try a more intense exercise you may consider going and purchasing the 21 day fix extreme which is the second program in the to program series. The second program is for more advanced exercisers because the exercises in the DVDs are much more difficult than the original I recommend a series for anyone who wants to lose weight perhaps before a wedding or a party.

 

Obtain Normal Body Weight and Avoid The Extremes

Never Go To The Extreme!fitness-boot-camp-testimonial

Looking at celebrities and their perfect pictures from magazines, people have become more and more obsessed with looking perfect and obtaining the perfect body image.  Usually, this perfection we strive for is unattainable, since it has been achieved with Photoshop most probably.  However, there is also the other extreme: more and more people are gaining weight massively or have gained a lot of weight, becoming obese and over-indulging in food and drinks. Even if you follow a healthy lifestyle you might not end up looking as Gisele Bundschen or Kate Moss, but that’s ok, you should strive to look healthy and be happy.

The Unhealthy Game of Both Losing and Gaining

Both extremes on the scale are not healthy for your body.  Torturing your body and becoming thin like a skeleton is just as unhealthy as being obese and vice versa.  Therefore, if you want to preserve your health and obtain a realistic, healthy body image you should try to keep your weight within the normal limits.  Which basically means that you will not be too fat, but you will not be too thin either if you choose to keep your weight within normal BMI.

Just because after the first two weeks you don’t see the results, that doesn’t mean you should give it up and go back to your old habits. I know old habits die hard, but give your new lifestyle a chance, or you will never see the results it might have.[/box]
