Happy Friday! Today I want to give you a list of three things to eat more of to help you get more weight loss results! Incorporate the following three foods into your diet more often to achieve your goals faster! Try the Cowboy Ryan 28 day in home workout program with these foods to change your life!
1. FISH – Fish is a high protein source, which is exactly what you need during a workout program. When you work out you are tearing your muscles and protein will be needed afterwards to repair them. It also contains high amount of omega-3 fatty acids. These are GOOD fats. Your body cannot make these on its own, so we must get them from an outside source. Most people tend to me deficient in omega-3’s, so definitely add in fish a couple days a week! Omega-3 fatty acids can help decrease inflammation, decrease depression, and increase cardiovascular health. Salmon has the highest amounts of omega3’s out of any fish.
The average adult human body is approximately 50-65% water. Cells are made up of about 70% water. Water is crucial for overall good health and wellbeing. Most people do not drink as much water as they should. Water should be taken in in high amounts if one is trying to be healthy, but especially if one is trying to lose weight. Water can significantly increase weight loss success!
Drinking water is critical when on a weight loss journey. It has countless benefits that lead to more weight loss. To begin, drinking water causes your body to burn more calories. It helps to speed up the metabolic rate, causing more calories to be burned. This increase is even higher is the water is ice cold, as the body must warm the water before it uses it, which uses energy. Also, when trying to lose weight most people are involved in some sort of workout plan that they are not used to on a normal basis....
Alright guys, so today I want to just give it to you straight. You read this blog because you want results, right? Well here is what you must do to get results….
You have to WORK. You have to GRIND. Stop making excuses for yourself. Stop waiting! As a matter of fact, ask yourself right now why you are waiting to start. What’s stopping you from getting what you want? If you sit and make excuses for yourself, you will never get anywhere. 2 weeks, 6 months, 1 year from now you will still be in the same place, wanting the same results, telling yourself the same excuses.
Sometimes it’s best to be harsh. Be real with yourself. If you really want to lose the weight, then you have to do something about it. Sitting on the couch instead of working out and eating dessert every night will not get you there. Yes, it will be hard, as a matter of fact it will be really hard. Making changes in any areas of your life is difficult. Accept this and then plunge into the challenge!
