If you get 10,000 people in a room, at least half will say the want to lose weight. Out of the half, all of them will say they want to lose weight Fast. It’s no surprise why our 5 week Challenge fills up so fast. People usually lose 10-20 pounds in 5 weeks. It’s a little more than a month but people still achieve crazy results in short amount of time. Losing weight is one of the simplest things in the world (in theory) but doesn’t always go as planned. Most people will tell you to eat less calories than you burn, but only if it were that easy…
Now, let’s get started on how you can lose weigh in a month.
It’s about the process not the goal.
When individuals say to themselves they are going to lose weight they start with the goal. Let’s say it’s 40 pounds. They envision the 40 pounds. They dream about the 40 pounds of weight loss. As important as it is to think about your goal, you have to back track away from it. Set your goal and forget it. You’ll lose weight by following a process, not the goal. If you can’t commit to the process, you won’t lose the weight.
Start with a Fast.
If you can do a fast for your first day, ideally that would be awesome. A fast is simply going without food for a period of time. Of course we are not doctors so check with your doctors first but it’s a great way to hit the reset button on your normal habits that caused you to gain weight. If you fast for 15 hours, you can stop eating at 8pm and then have your next meal at 11am the next morning.
For the first 30 days of your changes you have to workout EVERY DAY. You might think it’s a bit much but we have reasoning behind this. It’s not so much the intensity of the workout to lose weight but you are rewiring the process in your brain. This reframes working out as I want to, not I have to.. Your mindset is the biggest factor when it comes losing weight. Exercise daily can be a simple as walking 45 minutes if you are very sore from your weight training.
Weight Training Days to Lose Weight
Weights are must for weight loss. Let me explain, Weight will add lean muscle to your body which is a good thing. When you add say a pound of muscle, your body needs calories to maintain the extra new pound of muscle you added to your body. Now, if over the year you add 5 pounds of muscle, your body will need that many more calories to sustain those extra pounds of muscle. Weight training will also give you that lean defined look. We Recommend to do weight training 3-4 times a week when you first start in your journey to losing weight. Then, do 5-6x a week.
Drink this , not That!
We can’t tell you enough how the lack of water destroys results. But worse, When they drink alcohol it puts the fat burning process in a total stop. So here’s what you can do to add more water: Drink a lot of water before you eat. Most say a glass but We . won’t tell you that because that limits you to the amount. Just drink a lot of water.
With all this said, do what works best FOR YOU when it comes to meal plans. If it’s the keto diet, do keto diet. If it’s high protein, do that. There is always more than one way to skin a cat and there’s definitely more than one diet to lose weight.
