If you’re looking to cut down body fat or maintain your current bodyweight, you’ll already know that the right combination of diet, exercise and supplements is essential. If you can control these three, you’ll control our body weight.

It all sounds simple. So why do many people struggle to achieve their weight-loss goals? The devil, as they say, is in the details. Even the smallest mistakes can stack up and stall your progress. The tips below cover the most common mistakes that people make. Get these five tips right and not only will you hit your target and maintain your target weight for the long-term.

Cardio is key

When it comes to fat loss and weight management, don’t neglect the cardio. Weight is all well and good, but you really want to get your body into a state in which is constantly burning fat.

This calls for breaking a sweat and upping your heart rate. Do cardio 5 times a week to burn excess body fat, improve cardiovascular fitness and release the endorphins.

 Eat smart

Just because you’re managing your weight doesn’t mean that you’re unable to enjoy yourself. Eating out calls for eating smart and choosing options that are genuinely healthy. This isn’t always as easy as it sounds. Salad may sound like the healthiest option on the menu, but if it comes drenched in dressing, it’s probably one of the worst. Similarly, “healthy” breads may not be nearly as good for you as they sound. Where possible, choose a restaurant that displays calorie content.

Size matters

It’s not just what you eat,it’s how much and how often It’s easy to tuck away salads, pasta and porridge in the assumption that if it’s healthy, it’s all good. All calories count. Sensible portion sizes will get you into the habit of self-regulating your calorie intake and eating healthily. As a rule of thumb before you eat have a glass of water. Quite often hunger and thirst can be confused and having a drink beforehand can help reduce your food consumption.

Protein

Protein isn’t just for the hardcore gym members and powerlifters. Because protein takes longer to digest than carbs or fat, eating it can raise your metabolism by around 20%. The outcome? You’ll feel fuller for longer. Try adding tuna or chicken to your salad, an egg to your breakfast or replacing your afternoon snack with nuts or a protein shake

Supplements

Weight management doesn’t call for popping pills with wild abandon. In fact, when it comes to supplements, quality beats quantity every time. Natural weight management supplements such can raise your metabolism and inhibit appetite, leaving you energised and less susceptible to unhealthy cravings.
