Combining Kickbox Cardio and Diet Supplements

IS cardio enough? Is working out enough to help you meet your weight loss goals? This is the question of the hour – of every hour for eternity it seems. Some people workout tirelessly without success and blame the exercise for their failure to lose weight.  But yet they eat whatever they want and don’t consider it to be an issue.

You need to have a healthy balance of both diet and exercise in order to lose weight.  One of the girls I train with wasn’t losing any weight with exercise alone until she told me that she went to skinny fiber reviews from the official website online. She said these skinny fiber pills helped her eat less throughout the day.  The fact of the matter is that the MORE calories you consume, and if you consume more than you are burning, you won’t be losing weight. That’s just science. And fiber can really help you lose weight. You need to burn more either by eating less or by exercising more and that way you will start to see rapid weight loss.  After 2 weeks, you will notice small changes in your body, and bigger changes after 4 weeks.  Rome wasn’t built in a day, remember that!

My friend/client normally was always hungry and these hunger pains were the driving force behind her eating a lot of junk food. But skinny fiber helped her feel less hungry throughout the day which lead to her eating way less food and losing a lot of weight.  Of course this is just one of many options for a person wanting to lose weight.

Other people prefer to just cut out sugar or high fat foods and stick to eating leafy green vegetables, steamed or broiled fish and brown rice. I get super bored of foods like that, so I am more likely to eat steak and potatoes and just do an extra 30 minutes of exercise each night on top of my regular routine.

There are many forms of exercise you can get including kickboxing, martial arts, running, or any type of sport.

I am also a big fan of home work out videos because you don’t have to waste time changing at the gym, you can just do a quick workout when you wake up before you shower for work and voila, finished!

The most important thing to do is be consistent. Drink plenty of water. Don’t drink too much alcohol and allow yourself the odd day to relax, go out to eat with your friends and don’t feel like you are depriving yourself too much.

Write a list of your favourite low calorie snacks and fill your fridge with options that are not tempting or bad. For example, green apples, low fat yogurt and cottage cheese are all excellent filling options that will satisfy you and also your craving for something sweet.  Until next time! 🙂

Kickboxing and Cardio Fat Loss Benefits

Everyone knows that exercise is important for them. But so many people struggle to get the energy or drive enough to follow through with it and commit to a regular regime of working out and cardio.

I think that is primarily due to the fact that exercise is BORING for most people.  Going to a hot packed sweaty gym. Jumping on a treadmill and staring into oblivion watching as the 45 minute clock slowly drops down while you listen to the only song you like on your ipad. Repeat. And probably lady gaga.

Boring, right?

But it doesn’t have to be this way. The key to success and fitness is to finding something that you actually ENJOY doing.  Whenever I ask a kid what they like to do in their free time, they always say some sort of actual physical activity “Oh I love playing football” or “My favorite thing to do is play tag!”  Even when asked if they prefer that to video games, they always prefer playing sports or running around the park with their buddies.

Because it’s PLAY, it’s exhilarating.  And it’s natural.

While it might be strange to ask a group of your buddies to play tag or hide and seek with you at the park, what ISN’T strange is getting a group together to play a game of basketball.  Remember in elementary school, how awesome it was to play capture the flag?  Games are fun. Activity is FUN, freeing.  I got into kickboxing as a pretty chunky person, I had a lot of fat to lose. But it literally melted off me once I started kickboxing three times a week over the course of a year.  I started to actually enjoy my workouts for once, something I never thought possible.  The key is just to stumble across something you actually enjoy doing.

And then once you find it, never look back.
