Gaining weight as a woman is no fun, especially when you don’t know what the cause is. Read on to find out how can you can stop weight gain starting today.
You can be living your life and feeling relatively happy in your work and home life, but come every Saturday when you step up on those bathroom scales, you see your weight is up by two pounds. And because you can’t tell why it’s happening, it’s impossible to know if and when it will stop.
However, if you CAN somehow identify where things are going wrong, you CAN take control of your situation. You can stop weight gain if it hasn’t stopped already and actually reverse it by losing all of the excess fat you don’t want.
First things first, you need to do an analysis of your weekly schedule and identify which parts of your lifestyle are causing you to eat too much. You see, that’s the only true cause of weight gain: eating too much and not doing enough exercise to burn the surplus calories off.
But instead of just saying, “Okay, I’ll eat less,” it’s a better idea to identify exactly when and why you’re eating too much.
Here are the main indirect causes of weight gain in women:
– Having kids
– Stress & boredom
– Getting married
– Becoming less active
To stop weight gain right away (if it hasn’t stopped already) you’re going to need to eat fewer calories per day and per week. Click this link to go the ‘Perfect Body Plan’ BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) calculator.
By filling in a few basic stats about yourself, such as your age and height, it will tell you how many calories a day your body needs to maintain its weight. By eating fewer calories a day than your BMR, you’re guaranteed to lose weight.
Once you’ve done that, read the tips that follow. Together they’ll help you stop your weight gain, lose weight, get fitter and guarantee you don’t gain weight in the future.
Stop Weight Gain Tip #1: Identify Weak Areas of Your Lifestyle and Change Them
Without realizing it it’s extremely easy to fall into bad habits when it comes to eating more than you need to. For one week, write down everything you eat along with the times you eat it. Make sure you note down the number of calories each of your meals and snacks contains.
At the end of week, look for trends. Many women eat during the evening while watching TV with their kids or pig out straight after work as a stress release mechanism.
Once you’ve seen where your main weak points are, change them by either cutting out the excess eating, or changing what you eat to something much healthier and well-proportioned.
For example, if you often eat a sandwich when you get home that consists of white bread, butter and a highly calorific filling such as red meat with a condiment of some sort, change it to a whole meal bread (which, unlike white bread, is an unrefined carbohydrate) with low-fat or no butter and a lower fat meat such as tuna or chicken.
Straight away you could be cutting your weekly calorie intake by up to 2700 calories! Change another snack too and you’ll be losing more than a pound a week instantly!
Stop Weight Gain Tip #2: Mix A Lowering of Your Calorie Intake With Regular Aerobic Exercise
To boost your metabolism and always ensure you’re burning fat and not muscle, it’s important you perform regular exercise. If you’ve never really exercised before, that’s okay. It doesn’t have to be hard or boring.
Playing a sport twice a week is a great way to start. Then on the weekends you can mix in a little jogging or, if you prefer a lower impact exercise, swimming to burn some extra calories.
3 hours of exercise a week, playing sports such as squash or badminton, and an hour’s running at the weekend is enough to burn several thousand calories. Add that deficit to the reduction of your calorific intake from foods and the result is consistent, safe, long-term weight loss. It falls off and STAYS off.
Here’s a quick example of how you could mix a lowering of your calorie intake with exercise. You eat 600 calories less per day than your BMR. That equals over a pound of weight loss per week already.
You then do exercise three times a week, twice intense and once less intense. That equals about another 2500 calories, factoring in your other physical activities, such as walking, climbing stairs, etc.
Both together, these calorie control methods will allow you to lose 2 lbs a week, EVERY week for as long as you keep up the changes.
Stop Weight Gain Tip #3: Stay Motivated By Keeping Your Goals In Sight
Even when they’re losing 2 or more pounds of fat a week, some people fail to continue their body improvement program for more than a few weeks. They will get distracted; they slip back into their old habits. Don’t allow this to happen to you.
Make short term goals by breaking down your main, end goal. Focus on setting yourself S.M.A.R.T goals. That means: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-framed. That way you massively boost your chances of keeping up your new lifestyle over the long term.
