HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR WEIGHT AFTER WEIGHT LOSS

Here are tips to lose weight or simply maintain your weight.

Stock up fiber

Fiber helps you lose fat by fighting hunger pangs and lowering insulin levels.

Aim to eat 25-35 grams of fiber a day.

Eat more protein and veggies

These foods help you lose body fat even when you are not working out.

E.g. beef, egg, spinach

Avoid white carbs

Don’t eat too many simple carbs with low nutritional value.

e.g. pasta, bread, potatoes

Construct a meal plan

Put together healthy meals and alternate a new meal every few weeks for a little variety.

Stay hydrated

Water transfers important nutrients throughout your body.

Stay away from high-calorie drinks like soda and juice.

Have a cheat day

Take one day out of the week to break your diet.

It turns out that a cheat day helps improve fat loss by maintaining your metabolic rate.

Cardio in moderation

Cardio helps burn fat.

But too much cardio will send your body into a catabolic state( when your body switches from burning fat to burning muscles)

Keep your cardio workout sessions to 30 minutes, four times a week.

Sleep

Many of the fat burning processes take place while you are asleep.

Sleeping anywhere between 6 to 10 hours gives your body enough time to burn fat away.

Be patient

Losing body fat can be difficult.

Note:  Everyone’s body is different and what may work for others may not work for you, but these guidelines will keep you healthy.
