Hey everyone. I have been working out now for about 2 months. I work out practically every day and I switch up my workouts. (I've heard doing the same thing over and over reduces results). So typically, I will do my 1.5 mile walk (I heard it's better than running as it uses more muscle) then I will do ab work for 20-30 mins or cardio for about the same time or just a full body workout. I do this daily like I mentioned above. I have seen very little to no difference. My husband and everyone else said that I won't yet. Am I doing something wrong or do you have tips that I might want to include in my existing workouts? I just started using s Health and workout trainer for a few days. Need guidance. I'm getting discouraged but NOT giving up. Thanks!!!!!!
So I started back up with myfitnesspal again and according to it my goal is 1540 cal and my intake was 1342 with 535 out.
So should I increase my calorie goal to say 2000 for now until I can regulate it? I only went with 1540 because that is what myfitnesspal suggested. I guess what I'm asking is do you know of any websites or the like that will help aid me in what to eat, what to avoid, etc? I have the exercise down but not the diet.
You wrote "So typically, I will do my 1.5 mile walk (I heard it's better than running as it uses more muscle)"
I'm not sure if you really compare walking with running. Running uses more muscle and burns more calories because it's faster.
You should do cardio one day, the other one body workout. Run longer than you do now, least 30minutes and increase up to one hour.
Are you healthy enough to do running?
Also make sure to eat the right things after your sport. You need vitamins and protein. Low carbs.
It takes time until you see your success. Keep on, you will make it!
Dr. Oz suggests 10 minutes of high intensity exercise a day. It boosts your metabolism for 24-48 hours after your workout. Diet is about 80% of the key to weight loss. And remember you didn't gain the weight in on a day, so it will take time to lose it. Don't get discouraged, just stay consistent.
So, I feel I did a little better today on the calories. I started with 2000 and as of right now, with supper done, sitting with 1267 remaining. That is with intake and burned calculated.
Congrats:) You'll make it.
It's good to eat in about 500 kilocalories less than you burn. So your body doesn't start to burn protein.
