Losing weight means dedication! It isn’t just associated with particular forms of exercise, it’s also about eating healthily. You can lose weight from simply eating the right breakfast or in some cases eating breakfast alone can help increase your metabolism for those who skip it!

Everybody (literally every ‘body’!) is different, so what works for you may not work for your friend or partner which applies to exercise as well as nutrition. There are also other factors that have to be taken into consideration such as injuries and medical conditions. Either way all the aforementioned are the reasons behind a long list of questions that need to be answered in order for each individual case to be assessed.

The general perception of how to lose weight quickly is to go running. Would you believe that the quickest and best method of losing weight is actually weight training? That said, the use of interval training is a great addition to a concise weight loss programme. Intervals training is a particular type of cardiovascular training that burns fat for upto 24 hours whereas weight training is a longer lasting fat burn as it increases your metabolism on a permanent basis and also gives your muscles that slim line ‘toned’ look.

In addition to a specific individualised weight training programme, eating the right foods at the right time of day is a necessity for weight loss. Drinking the right amount of water during the day, as well as during exercise, is also on the list as is achieving the optimal 8 hours sleep to allow your body to repair and grow.
