You must train your abdominals at least 2 times per week to see a noticeable difference, I recommend choosing a core workout routinethat involves both flexion and extension of the core muscles and rotation of trunk under external resistance.

The very first thing everyone tries when losing weight is the diet. However, in this diet forget all about taking away foods. All we are doing is adding. Instead of trying to starve yourself just add a little bit of green and goodness to your meals. Try some different fruit, maybe a few veggies, and possibly even a few healthy snacks like yogurt or baked chips in between the other tastier snacks. You don’t have to cut everything out, just replace a little bit.

The easiest and most proven way to lose weight? Drink water, and lots of it. Staying hydrated has been proven to help keep the body from storing fat cells and also helps crave a bit of your hunger. Most of the time we confuse being thirsty with being hungry so we reach for a few delicious snacks to fill our stomach when all we really needed was a bit of H2O to satisfy our body.

Muscle is the only tissue that burns calories, therefore the more muscle you have the higher your metabolism. So aim to perform 3-4 strength workouts per week working all the major muscle groups.

Try smaller plates. Studies show that eating a small portion from a large plate will leave you hungry for more but a small portion on a smaller plate gives your brain a visual sign that you have already had more. It’s a bit of tricking the brain, but strangely enough, it works.

Stay active throughout your meal. Not so much physically as mentally. When we get bored we eat more, even more so in front of a television. Keeping occupied and busy in your head will keep you from going into the unconscious eating mode in front of the television.

Lastly, be positive and spread your goal. It may not seem like great advice but nothing changes a persons body more than the state of mind they put themselves in. Not to mention spreading your motivation with your friends will give you backup reserves. When you start to run low that’s when they come in and give you that kick in the rump you needed to keep going. With a positive attitude and the support of a few friends backing you up anything is possible, especially your fitness goals!
