The best way to lose weight/tone up /get in shape or get fitter is cardio! Getting your heart rate up is the best thing you do for your body. Eating right also plays a large role, so up the fruit and veg and eat one carb based meal a day, with lean meats, fish & chicken. Just cut out all the sugary fatty stuff that you know is bad for you. And then get into the cardio. Running, walking, jogging, stationary bike, stepper, cross trainer – anything that gets your heart rate up will burn calories and tone fat. After cardio is the best time to do lunges, squats and crunches. They are more effective when combined with cardio.
Also – try to eat six or five small meals a day instead of 3 big ones. This makes your body think you are going to feed it regularly and therefore thinks it needs to burn quicker. You have to do this every day though, not every second day, your body needs to get used to it. The worse thing you can do is starve yourself or cut down to two meals or one meal a day. Your body thinks it being starved and therefore stores all your fat and all the calories and carbs and turns that into fat instead of burning it and then you stuff your metabolism up and it'll never be the same. The thing is to still lower your calories by eating fruit and veg and other good stuff but not starving yourself. Hope this has helped!
It’s all comment sense – eating right & burning it off! The best thing about exercise is once you get going and speed your metabolism up it stays fast and burns calories when you aren’t doing anything!
