93 Kg To 77 Kg In 6 weeks My Journey In Fast Weight Loss

My Fast Weight Loss Journey 93 Kg To 77 Kg In 6 weeks

fast weight lossFast weight loss is not for everybody and it is certainly not the easiest thing I have done.

Especially at the tender young age of 49 ūüėÄ .

However it is achievable for everyone if you stick to the correct diet and training regime.

I was very lucky to get educated by people who not only knew what they were talking about.

But also took me down the right road in training before I ended up always being in bulking up stage.

Since I want to compete next year in bodybuilding.Bulking is what I thought that is the right thing to do.

Until I was advised by people that  not only was training wrong.

But weight loss was needed to see what was underneath all that excess weight  fat and water.

Fast weight loss The Diet

This is the  key to everything in weight loss  it is all about what you eat.

If you want to get fast weight loss or reduction of total body mass it all starts with what you put in your mouth daily simple as that.

Of course you need to do exercise also,but the diet is 70 % the greatest factor in loosing weight with out a doubt.

When  I went from 93 Kg To 77 Kg in 6 weeks my diet was that same everyday.

And I stuck to it even when I wanted to go and have other foods that were bad for me.

It was hard but as long as you have the right mindset keep to your¬† goals, then the rest is easy ūüėÄ .

Before you start to diet it is always good to seek medical and professional advise before considering  dieting.

Especially if you are overweight or slightly obese,please make sure that you talk to the right people before tackling and weight loss.

I was very lucky getting advise from smart fitness and being able to get some coaching from the people at muscle alley gym.

They were professional and gave me all the instruction that I needed  to lose fast weight in only 6 weeks.

My 6 Week Diet Plan

Meals:

1 : Natural Peanut Butter 15 g

Dutch Green Smoothie 100 ml [see the  recipe here].

2 : Oats 40 g

3 : Tuna chunks In Spring Water 65 g tin can be used as 2 servings.

Almonds 20 g.

4 : Chicken breast 180 g

Broccoli -3 Spears about 5 inch long

5 : Steam or Poached Salmon 180 g

Asparagus – 6 spears medium 5 inch to 7 inch in length

6 : Lean Minced Beef 5 % fat 250 g

Asparagus 6 spears medium approx 5 to 7 inch in length

1 Medium fried Egg [fried with no fat]

 

And that is about all I was eating everyday.

You can however add a little tomato puree and some herbs to the mince beef . Or quarter of a tin of tomatoes to taste better.

Otherwise it is a little dry on its own .

Fast Weight Loss Exercises

The exercises that have been talored for me was given by a qualified fitness expert.

First I got my measurements and total weight were taken.

The next step was getting asked if I had any special conditions that they needed to know. {Medical conditions like asthma etc.}.

It was only after they took all the correct facts that a diet and exercise plan were made for my body.

Please take into consideration that everyone is different and what works for my body, may not be compatible with your own bodies needs.

I will put down the exercises that were given on my plan so you can get the idea of what is needed to be done to achieve weight loss.

And there you have it my exercise regime that I did for 6 weeks to lose the weight that I did.

All the above exercises where done with weights that i could manage no big heavy weights.

Just heavy enough to know that I was working on each exercise.

It is important that you do not lift to much this can cause damage so always ask if you are not sure.

Final Words

Mindset When Bodybuilding

Mindset When Bodybuilding

body building mindset

Mindset When Bodybuilding

Your Mindset when bodybuilding has to be correct.

No matter how old you are or how fit and active you think you are bodybuilding is by far one of the hardest sports that you can compete in.

The sheer pain of all those hours at the gym basically ripping and re ripping your muscles so they grow is a test of not only strength and endurance  but also a mental test.

Your mindset has to be totally focused on the goal that you have set out to do.

Bodybuilding is basically resistance exercise that will develop your muscles.

It is achieved  with the correct diet with carbohydrates  and oils  and proteins to get the best result.

Bulking Up

To get size on when you are body building you need to eat more calories.

There are 2 ways of doing this one is the clean bulk with is eating all the right foods that contain the correct fats oils and proteins and this way you will  not add too much fat to your body whilst growing.

The other is the dirty bulk where you eat everything including burgers take ways and sugary foods and do not really care about adding fat to your body a just adding lots of calories.

The excess fat will be gone when you diet down anyway.

Even whilst  bulking it can be  hard to fit extra meals in to your daily life some take as many as 10000 calories  a day.To gain the weight before dieting back down for competition.

Dieting

Dieting down or cutting for bodybuilding is by far the hardest thing that you will have to do.

Many bodybuilders cut out all carbs up to 8 weeks before a competition.

This will be mentally and physically hard  and you have to have the right mindset and attitude or you will never make it.

All your energy will be at its lowest point and you still need to focus on lifting those weights and also doing a lot of cardio vascular exercises.

There is no easy way to get rid of all the excess fats and just have solid muscle to put on show.

Tips for setting your goal

1. Do not try to build up to fast it is a very slow process sometimes it can take years.

2. Get the right advice from people who have actually competed before.

3. Get the correct diet ask a nutritionist advice on what to eat at each stage.

4. Do not over exercise keep a good routine.

5. Get enough rest between work outs.

6. Drink enough water at all times.

7. The most important tip of all is enjoy working out.

It is a really hard sport and bodybuilding can  be hard as well as enjoyable you have to have the right frame of mind to compete and you have to want to win.

On the other hand body building can be great for fitness as well as for your health even if you do not take it serious enough to compete just for trimming or having a nice shapely body is a great feeling.

Working Out When Your Older


working out when your older

Working Out When Your Older

Working out when your older can be hard, however it can be fun as long as you do not over do things at the gym.

If you get the right advice then this can be a whole new way of life.

Although as we get older we do start to slow down and take it a little easy.

It does not mean that we can not keep ourselves fit and active.

And start working out when we are older. After all we are pushing against gravity everyday.

 

Getting into a routine for working out

We need to get into a routine ,to not only work out .

But also keep so we keep  healthy and  eat the right foods that our body needs .

To lead a good lifestyle when we get a little older.

I mean how many times  do you come home from a hard day at work and just sit in front of the television for hours?

And then go to bed, sleep, and do the same routine day in day out .

Then at the weekend have a few drinks to unwind.

Seriously how many times have you even looked at the sugar content and fat content in your daily food diet?

Most of us just trust the supermarkets and hypermarkets thinking that its okay to eat most thing they sell.

 

Did you ever notice the offers that are on nearly every aisle that are usually cheap and full of sugar.

Because sugar is big business it is cheap to make and they sell tonnes of it in our food.

Unfortunately for us it is not very good for us and can make your really poorly if your eat to much of it .

Over the years there are hundreds of medical conditions caused by to much sugar intake.

Working out when your older

Here is my guide to working out when you are older:

First of all make sure that you are fit and healthy enough to start working out.

It is no good just going to the gym then over doing things when you have not been for many years.

It would be always a great idea to go and get a quick check up from your doctor and ask advice before you start any exercise.

When you start at any new gym always ask how to use the equipment properly.

It would be good to  introduce yourself to the staff of your gym.

Because when you become a regular these people will probably be giving you the right advice, so it is always good to get to know them.

Working Out When your Older Tips

Do not over do things remember you are getting a little older and you are not 21 anymore.

Although in your mind you may think you are. ūüėÄ

Take things slow ask questions on how to do an exercise correctly.

Rome was not built in a day working out is a slow progress the more you go the better and fitter you will get.

If you feel that something is to heavy go a little lighter and do more reps.

Then eventually you will get stronger.

It is always good ask advice, if you are not to sure. It is not a competition  you are only doing this for your benefit.

One of the most important things people forget to do is cardio vascular exercises running, cycling, rowing machines etc .

These types of exercises  are really good for getting your heart pumping and for loosing weight plus excellent for stamina.

Eating right if working out when your older

Eating the correct food and drink are also a must for working out.

There is no point in doing any  exercise if you go and eat 10 big macs afterwards.

We all really need  to eat healthy and drink lots of water.

Always look at the ingredients of food, and cut out those that have high fat and sugar content.

At least this way your are giving your body the right fuel to work out.

My last bit of advice is very simple and that is enjoy yourself make it fun.

Then you will have a better work out and start to feel great inside and out.

Here is a video I found of a 81 year old working out.
Your age is not an issue.

Thank you for ready my post hope you enjoyed it  please feel free to comment.
