Not only are the holidays the perfect opportunity to make cherished memories with your loved ones, but also to have hearty meals that are typically high in fat. But after the parties are over, it’s time to make some resolutions! Want to start the new year off on the right foot but don’t know how to lose weight? Far from being a trendy diet that only leads to frustration, the FizzUp trainer gives you advice on how to lose weight without depriving yourself.
The desire to lose weight is one of the most popular resolutions, much like quitting smoking or working out more regularly, but before you balance out your diet, you first need to understand why you’re overweight. Once these factors come to light, FizzUp Nutrition* can help you get into healthy eating habits and most importantly, stick to them!
All too often, your diet is the first thing you can blame for being overweight. Diets that are too high in fats and sugars can have a negative impact on your physique. People tend to look at their food in terms of the calories it contains, but your eating habits also have an effect on your emotions, which are much more difficult to identify and control.
Going on a shopping spree in the cookie aisle, snacking because you’re bored or eating large portions at every meal is proof that you have abnormal eating behavior. It’s not about a lack of willpower; it’s about having difficulty in managing your emotions, which translates into compensatory eating. Eating becomes a refuge when you’re faced with your anxieties or worries. Your diet comforts you and makes you happier in times of mental discomfort.
Lack of physical activity promotes weight gain and increases your risk of high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol.
A sedentary lifestyle puts your body on standby, which causes it to store fat that it never uses during the day. It traps your body in a constant state of fatigue that sometimes psychologically restrains you from taking action.
It goes without saying that in some cases, taking genetics into account and metabolic disorders, in particular, is necessary for understanding weight gain. The environment you live in can also have an impact on your weight. How you interact with others and your socio-professional class can have an impact on your eating habits, too.
Being overweight is completely preventable and is something you can actively fight against. Although there’s no such thing as a miracle diet, a few simple steps can enable you to get back control of your physique and, to a greater extent, your life.
The benefits of the balanced diet are clear: by sticking to healthy eating habits, you’ll give your body all the nutrients it needs as you avoid cravings that are often dangerous for your waistline.
Healthy eating doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself. It’s a matter of going back to a natural diet that’s based on “common sense” and avoiding processed foods as much as possible. This not only makes you more aware of the advantages of healthy foods, but above all, the very real disadvantages of a diet that’s too high in sugar and fat. Cooking your own meals can be a first step to slimming down. It teaches you what to put on your plate and how to choose your food wisely.
FizzUp brings you meal plans* ranging from breakfast to dinner, including the snacks in between, that change every day. These meals take your goal (such as weight loss or muscle gain, for instance) and your dietary restrictions into account, whether you prefer to eat a vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free or lactose-free diet. With FizzUp Nutrition*, you’ll learn what you should be eating to reach your goal and in what quantities. This feature also includes over 250 recipes so that you never have to wonder what’s for dinner.
Exercise triggers energy consumption. It boosts your basic metabolism while also improving and toning your physique. There’s no need to run for an hour every day. Even the World Health Organization recommends just 20 minutes of physical activity every day. Your FizzUp workouts are personalized and only last 20 minutes. This is an easy way to get moving with exercises that are right for your fitness level and physical potential.
If you want to lose weight, then start the Fast Fat Burner program. It contains cardio exercises using the HIIT method, perfect for burning calories and drawing on your fat stores for up to 48 hours after your workout thanks to the “afterburn” effect, or EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). This program also brings you equipment-free strength training exercises to tone up your body from head to toe.
Now it’s time to tackle your New Year’s resolution! Let the FizzUp trainer be your guide to weight loss as you give your body confidence a boost. Getting started isn’t the tough part, it’s finding the key to turning your goals into reality. And now, that’s a done deal!
