Obesity in men is on the rise. The other day, I read one survey report that suggests that 41 percent of men between the age 20 and 65 will become obese by 2020. The #1 cause for the rise is unhealthy lifestyle.
More and more people are eating the wrong foods; most tend to eat foods that are making them fat. Excessive calorie intake (especially from junk foods) coupled with lack of exercise set the stage for obesity in men.
In this article, I will share with you some of the best weight loss tips for men that I have gathered from my research and experience. Anyone (especially men who are overweight) can follow and use these tips to lose unwanted weight.
The 1st simple weight loss tips for men is to ask yourself this question… “Why do you want to lose weight?” You need to be clear on this!
Some men want to lose weight because of health reason. Some want to lose weight because they want to look good in front of girls. Whatever it is, you need to be clear on your “why”. If your “why” is strong enough, the “how” will take care of itself – you will do what it takes to achieve your goal.
Next tip, get rid of foods that are making you fat! That means no junk foods like French fries, hamburger, pizza, potato chips, etc. Also, stay away from alcohol, drink more water instead of alcohol. Fat deposits from alcohol tend to stay around your belly. That is why you see so many men have sagging belly.
The next simple weight loss tips for men you can take home is….
Eat foods that promote muscle growth because muscles can help to burn body fat. These are protein rich foods such as soybeans, beans, peas, groundnuts, dark green leafy vegetables, fish, egg whites and skimmed milk. Remember: protein rich foods are body building foods.
Next tip is of course Regular Exercise. Any type of exercise that burns calories is good exercise. For example, cycling, running, brisk walking, swimming, aerobics, and skating. Remember the key words here are “Regular Exercise”. Healthy diet and regular exercise are the secret for losing unwanted weight.
