Most importantly, the Fit Fathers are here to help you every step of the way.
How To Lose Weight In A Month – Step #1 – Visualise Your Success.
You can establish the right mindset by choosing to join a program like our FF30X plan, because you know you can succeed on it.
In addition, you'll need to maintain your initial motivation; this will help you through the tougher days.
Your motivation should be easy to figure out. Whatever the occasion is in 30 days, there is a good reason why you want to look your best:
- To show your old school friends how successful and in shape you are.
- To make your wife proud.
- To show off your body on the beach without feeling embarrassed.
Whatever the reason for your weight loss quest, this is also your motivation, and you should remind yourself of this every morning. A picture of your fianceé, old school friends or the vacation destination should be adequate.
Believing and visualising your success will ensure you stick to the Fit Father plan and lose the weight in 30 days.
How To Lose Weight In A Month – Step #2 – Regulate Your Sleep Pattern.
It might seem like a funny way to lose weight, but before you can embark on your 30-day weight loss program, you need to start regulating your sleep patterns.
Dieting, exercise, and sleep are the lowest of your priorities, but you need to make time for all of them.
An adult male should get between 6 and 7 hours sleep a night. If you have less than this, your body does not have adequate time to regulate your hormones.
When you sleep the level of cortisol in your body lowers. This is the stress hormone, and high levels of it prevent testosterone from forming inside your body. Unfortunately, low levels of testosterone can have a number of effects on your body.
In terms of weight loss, it will encourage your body to convert the testosterone you have into oestrogen; which tells your body to store fat. Yes, low levels of testosterone can make you fat!
Sleep also increases the level of leptin in your body; this is the hormone that decreases your appetite. Lack of sleep lowers leptin levels and increases ghrelin; which is the hormone that makes you feel hungry.
As you can see, sleep is essential to ensure your body is ready to lose weight.
How To Lose Weight In A Month – Step #3 – Develop A Sustainable, Healthy Eating Habit.
It is inevitable that you need to look at your eating habits if you wish to lose weight. The average male needs to consume 2,500 calories each day. However, calorie counting is not enough.
For weight loss you should aim for roughly 35% carbohydrates, 40% protein and 25% fat. Fortunately you do not need to work this out yourself!
The Fit Father Project offers a range of meal plans to help you choose a balanced, healthy and enjoyable diet. You can even sample the free 1-day meal plan to give you a taste of what this involves.
Our simple way of managing your portions, through ‘Perfect Plates' means there is no need to count calories or analyse macros.
Simply controlling your food consumption will ensure you are eating fewer calories than you need; which is the key to weight loss and achieving your 30 day goal.
How To Lose Weight In A Month – Step #4 – Do 30 Minutes Of Physical Activity Each Day.
It's not possible to out-exercise a bad diet; you cannot achieve weight loss unless you correct your eating habits; as described above.
However, even when losing weight in just 30 days, you do not need to start intense physical exercise straight away.
This can feel like a chore and will encourage you to find reasons not to do it.
Instead, simply find 30 minutes per day and indulge in physical activity; this means walking to the shops or a sedate cycle ride.
The aim is to create a habit which will allow you to progress to more formal exercises.
Even a little exercise will help with your weight loss goal, but it is the habit which is important. In the first two weeks, you'll lose weight simply because you are eating better.
The second two weeks of your program will maintain the weight loss by increasing your exercise and, therefore, the amount of calories you need to burn each day.
The larger deficit in calories will ensure your challenge to lose weight is maintained.
How To Lose Weight In A Month – Step #5 – Step-Up To A Formal Exercise Plan.
Now that you have developed a habit you know you have the time and the willpower to exercise. It will then be time to up the exercise to something more formal and challenging.
An excellent place to start is the 24-min fat burning workout
This program has been devised using high-intensity training to ensure you obtain the fast results you need without having to spend hours in the gym.
This is the same program that many men have used successfully. It emphasizes that you do not need to have a long workout; just a well designed one which will fulfill your needs.
At this point, the weight will be coming off, and your formal exercise will not only help to increase this weight loss it will also help to build muscle; ensuring you look better in 30 days than you expected to!
Losing weight in 30 days is more than just possible; it is a reality for many men and can be for you. The FF30X program is designed to help you achieve this goal, and you will have the support of the Fit Father project and like-minded men at every stage of your journey.
All you need to do is follow the program and remember to take the before shots; you won’t recognize yourself at your big occasion!
It doesn’t matter what your current level of fitness is; you can improve your muscle mass and reduce your body fat.
Make sure to add conditioning workouts, like our 24-min workout, to your exercise regime.
