A lot of exercise, strict diets that are difficult to maintain, and a good portion of perseverance: losing weight is a task, but to lose some pounds you don’t have to make it too difficult for yourself!
- Lose weight through light exercise
It’s true that you can lose weight by eating fewer calories than you burn. And daily exercise is definitely good for you. But you really don’t have to go to the gym three times a week to lose fat – unless, of course, you prefer working out that way. There’s nothing wrong with that. Anyone who has little need to completely change their life and adjust their diet doesn’t necessarily have to do that to digest fat. You just need to be a little more patient. Research shows that gentle exercise, such as walking or jogging for a while, can be a good way to lose fat. Without a special diet, but over a long period of months.
2. Keep it up for at least three years
Suppose you lose ten kilos if you regularly exercise light to moderately intensive. Then, according to research, there’s a good chance that those pounds will still be lost if you keep it up for three years (or longer). It often yields a good result if you adjust your lifestyle while losing weight to make it easier to maintain. In other words: you’ll gain more with this than with a rigorous diet (or heavy sport) where you initially lose a lot of weight, but which you eventually (maybe) not maintain. In addition, intensive exercise can make you more hungry, making it tempting to eat unhealthy snacks.
3. Digest fat
The key to success is digesting fat, according to research. With light to moderately intensive exercise, the body learns to digest relatively more fat, in proportion to carbohydrates, that other important source of energy. The appetite for food decreases over time and the subjects in the studies that followed the method also felt more satisfied when they ate something.
