Ugh, summer season. For many, it's a great time full of amazing road trips, beach volleyball sessions and outdoor hiking - but for others, it's a time where all they can think about is the amount of weight they need to lose to look good at your friend's beach wedding.
Look, we totally understand the struggle. There are so many conflicting opinions online about which food to eat, how to exercise, which supplement to take - all of it can be extremely overwhelming.
Not to worry, that's why we're here. At Atomic Strength Nutrition, we always aim to provide the most accurate and actionable information possible - no matter the goal.
In this blog, we’re going to cover 3 of the best ways to lose weight fast and safe.
Yikes, we’re already asking for a lot of work, but trust us, counting your calories can be the most effective and efficient way to lose weight. At the end of the day, weight loss is about controlling the number of calories you intake and constantly staying in what's called a caloric deficit - that is, eating fewer calories than your body requires.
Good question. For most people, a deficit of 15-20% is best. It is worth mentioning that you should also change the way you intake your calories.
This leads us to our next tip for fast and effective weight loss.
You might be starting to see a trend here. Weight loss is, for the most part, controlled by your diet. Don’t get us wrong, exercise is crucially important, but when it comes to fast and effective weight loss nothing will make a bigger difference than the food you eat.
Manipulating your macros to suit weight loss means understanding that you should be eating foods that are relatively low in calories - these are carbohydrates and protein. We suggest following a basic 50/30/20 scheme (50% carbs, 30% protein, 20% fat).
Following this macronutrient scheme, the majority of your diet will come from fresh food like lean meats, fish, dark grains, vegetables and fruit. Yes - fats are important, but 20% of your diet should suffice and help you to effectively lose weight during a caloric deficit.
There are many ways you can increase your metabolic rate. The first is by exercising. Exercise will help your body to burn more calories throughout the day, and recovery of muscle tissue will also help to increase your bodies protein demand.
The next and most powerful way to increase your metabolism is through a fat burner.
If you’re looking for a high-powered stimulant rich fat burner we recommend FIRE STARTER, our strongest fat burner built to give you a surge of energy and a rich metabolic boost - while those who want a more natural, steady fat burner can look to INFERNO.
In both cases, the idea is to increase your bodies natural metabolic rate. This increase in metabolism will help you to effectively burn more calories and lose more weight.
