How to stay lean and look great forever
The benefits of staying lean are numerous. From improved health to aesthetics, there are many reasons why you should strive to maintain healthy body weight. And with the right approach, it doesn’t have to be difficult. In this blog post, we’ll cover the best ways to stay lean, including proper nutrition and intermittent fasting, as well as how to make staying lean a lifestyle.
The benefits of staying lean.
When you are carrying around less weight, your overall health improves. Your heart doesn’t have to work as hard to pump blood throughout your body and you reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease. You also lower your chances of developing type II diabetes, sleep apnea, and various types of cancer.
This one is pretty self-explanatory – when you stay lean, you look better. Clothes fit better, you appear more toned and defined, and you generally look healthier. All of this can lead to an increase in confidence, which can have a positive impact on every area of your life.
Whether you’re an athlete or just someone who likes to stay active, being lean will help you perform better. Carrying less body fat and more muscle weight means that you’ll have more energy and endurance, burn more calories and you’ll be able to move more efficiently.
The best ways to stay lean.
The first step to staying lean is to eat a healthy diet. This means consuming plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and limiting your intake of processed foods, sugary drinks, and excessive calories in fats. Eating a healthy diet will help to keep your weight down and improve your overall health.
Intermittent fasting is another effective way to stay lean. This involves periods of fasting, followed by periods of eating. This can help you not overeat.
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a type of exercise that alternates between short bursts of intense activity and brief periods of rest or recovery. HIIT workouts are a waste of time if you want to lose weight, but they can work for maintenance or if you’re trying to improve your cardiovascular health.
There are a lot of different ways to approach high-intensity workouts. Some people like to go all out, while others prefer to take a more moderate approach. Most people don’t understand when to push and when not to, and how to benefit from both. There are a few things that you should keep in mind. First, make sure that you warm up properly. This will help you avoid injury and get the most out of your workout. Second, focus on quality over quantity. It’s better to do a few quality reps than to try and do as many reps as possible with bad form. Intensity means how hard you’re working against your max, not how hard you feel like you’re working out.
One of the best ways to approach high-intensity workouts is by using an RPE system or 1rm. This will help you keep track of your workout intensity and make sure that you’re working at the right level. You can join the Ignaciosports VIRTUAL APP and follow the weekly workouts with the RPE system.
How to make staying lean a lifestyle.
Creating a healthy lifestyle plan
The first step to making staying lean a lifestyle is to create a healthy lifestyle plan. This plan should include both diet and exercise recommendations. For example, eating lean protein between 1lb – 1.5lb per body weight ( or your lean muscle weight) and vegetables at every meal, and doing 4x times per week Hight-intensity workouts, combining hypertrophy and strength training.
Finding the right motivation
Once you have created a healthy lifestyle plan, it is important to find the right motivation to stick to it ( results are the best motivation). This may mean setting weight loss or fitness goals or simply finding a role model who has successfully made staying lean a part of their life, like me (Instagram).
Sticking to your plan
The final step in making staying lean a lifestyle is sticking to your plan. This means following your diet and exercise recommendations on a consistent basis, even when you don’t feel like it, the goal is to turn them into a habit. It also means being prepared for setbacks and slips, and with the Ignaciosports app and the free weight loss course, you can learn how to get back on track as soon as possible.
When trying to lose weight sleep is important because it helps the body recover from the day and reset itself in ” the healing process”.
Not getting enough sleep can increase the levels of the hormone ghrelin. Ghrelin signals the body to release more hunger hormones, which can lead to overeating.
It is recommended to get at least 7 hours of sleep each night. Not only to reduce cravings but to control cortisol levels that can impede further weight loss and muscle building.
