How To Lose 15 Pounds Without Dieting
Lose 15 pounds without dieting? Sounds impossible, right? Well, not really. A recent study published in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport suggests that eating a high-protein meal an hour before fitness workout helps burn more calories during exercise.
Based on the results gathered in the study, the participants who ate high protein meal an hour prior to working out burned more calories per minute than those participants who ate nothing. This result clearly suggests that the body will consume more calories after a meal when it has additional calories to use. Moreover, the body breaks down muscle and/or fat as fuel sources if you skip a meal before you head off to the gym. That means potentially having muscle weight loss; hence, less muscle means less opportunity for the body to efficiently burn calories.
Start preparing for a high-protein meal or snack an hour before your work out to allow your body to burn more calories during exercise. Although the required amount of protein in a normal meal is still arguable, going for the usual suggestion on many studies may not hurt. On a standard rule, consuming a maximum of 30 grams of protein across three meals throughout the day is ideal for losing weight. Good high-protein foods include protein drinks, egg whites, peanut butter, or Greek yogurt.
As for the exercise routine, doing a combination of cardio and strength training could help boost up your body to lose those excess fats entirely. A three-day per week cardiovascular and weight training routines is a good start to your weight loss program and help you lose 15 pounds or more depending on your goal. Cardio increases metabolism and burns fat while weight training tones and builds muscle mass. Weight training is as important as cardio training because having a strong muscle mass keeps your metabolism going even long after you have stopped working out.
