The following tips will help you to completely transform your whole body.
Eat to lose
You don't have to starve yourself when you want to lose fat from your body. Even though many experts may claim that you need to starve yourself and go for a very low calorie diet, it may not be necessary to lose the extra fat you have. You will need a definite number of calories to fuel your energy needs and to save your hard earned muscle tissue. It is important to reduce carbohydrate consumption but that does not mean you have to completely eliminate carbohydrates from your diet. It is also critical for you to increase your protein consumption when you gradually reduce your carbohydrate consumption. By increasing your protein intake slightly, you'll be able to limit the catabolic effects of a fat burning diet on your muscle tissue. Increasing more protein will also help you to build more muscle in the places where you want them.
Fuel your workouts
Besides having a good diet that will support you in transformation of your body, you will also need to use pre-and post-workout meals and supplements. They are necessary because they will provide the energy to ensure that you complete your workouts and make them more productive. The supplements will also help in recovery and performance. You need supplements such as branched chain amino acids, essential amino acids, protein powders, bioactive peptides and others. The protein thus supplied to your body will help it to synthesise new muscle.
Track your progress
Tracking your progress is important in whatever you do. The same is true for your body when you want to transform it. You need to take an honest and realistic look at yourself. Sending in front of a mirror can help you to do that easily. Find out what you need to change and what you already have. Taking a picture will also help you to remember about it in future. We can also post your progress pictures because that will not only boost your motivation but will also motivate you through the comments you get from other people. When you see yourself making progress and transforming your body as per your goal, it will keep you motivated to push yourself harder and achieve what you want to achieve.
Along with the progress photos, you also need to record your weight, body measurements like waist size, body fat and other important measurements. It'll show you how your hard work is helping you to get the result you deserve. Such measurable changes will always keep you motivated to keep doing what you're doing and to push harder. It will also help you to see what is working for you and what is not working.
When you're trying to transform your body completely, enough rest is necessary to ensure that you are allowing your body time to heal and grow itself. You need to provide your body with ample time to recover both in between sets and out of the gym. When you progress, after a one point of time you will start feeling what your body needs. During a day off to yourself will help your body by making it stronger and will also help you to perform better in the next workout.
