Did you ever see someone lose weight where they looked awful and you said to yourself, “They shouldn’t have bothered”?
They appear to be at their right weight yet their face is so gaunt, their arms and legs are skinny and they still have a bit of a tummy.
It’s amazing how the person can get so fixated with the weighing scales yet find it very hard to see the truth of them self in the mirror.
Who wants to look great on the scales and terrible in the mirror?
Unfortunately they have made the cardinal mistake of slimming; they have lost valuable muscle in their effort to lose weight.
Muscle is what gives you shape, but it also has another very important function, it helps support our metabolic rate (our body’s ability to burn fat for energy).
Why get rid of the very thing that not only gives you good shape, but also helps you maintain that shape?
Searching the Web for Answers
When faced with this problem people then usually go on the web for answers.
We type in: best ways to lose weight, fastest way to lose weight, diet pills, slimming tablets, weight loss programs, easy ways to lose weight, quick weight loss, diets to lose weight quick, tips to lose weight, etc.
The amount of information we get back can be bewildering and unfortunately much of it is not always that accurate.
If anything it can leave you even more confused trying to separate the facts from the fiction.
However two great markers of successful weight loss are as follows.
The Core Secrets of Successful Weight Loss
The answer is always fat-loss not just weight loss. (Who wants to lose their best curves or shapely muscle?)
This approach contrasts hugely from standard weight loss information based on the advice of taking less calories in and doing more exercise to burn existing calories.
Muscle is one of your biggest allies in helping you win your shape battle.
The next step is to firm up or even gain more muscle. That is how you get in better shape. Simply put, lose fat and gain muscle.
A Happy Mirror-Image
Let’s face it I’m sure you wouldn’t mind what you weighed if you saw a buffed, toned, shapely-figure looking back at you in the mirror.
This would allow you to put on your favourite clothes and strut your stuff showing off your great figure or physique.
It would give you a great lift and is such a confidence-booster.
What then can you do to set this process in motion?
