Becoming Skinny – The Basics
In order to become skinny you should keep things simple, and by following these straight forward methods will guarantee that you lose weight and become skinny quickly, and most importantly without harming your body.
Step 1 – Resistance Exercise & Aerobic Exercise
Aerobic exercise will help your body burn calories, and in order to lose weight it’s important that you burn more calories than your body need each day. This is what will force your body to burn the excess fat reserves you are storing on you buttocks, stomach, thighs and arms.
Resistance exercises are also important, because they will help your body maintain its lean muscle tissue. This is important because your muscle tissue plays a large role in your metabolic rate. Simply put, the more muscle you have the more calories your body will burn at rest. If you perform aerobic exercise and do not resistance train, your body will burn muscle tissue which will make your body less efficient at burning calories over time.
Exercise tips to become skinny:
• Perform cardiovascular exercise for 30-60 min at least 4 days a week
• Track your diet and exercise program religiously
• Make sure you add progressions to your program as your body adapts
• Low impact aerobic activities are better for the joints and will decrease the chance of injury
Step 2 – Restrict Calories
This one may be a “given”, but it can’t be stressed enough. In order to force your body to use your excess fat stores as energy sources, you have restrict the number of calories you consume each day.
Here is an example that will make things easier to understand. Let’s say that your body burns about 2000 calories each day, and your goal is to become skinny. What you will have to do is create a caloric deficit to make this happen. This simply means that you will have to eat around 300-400 calories under that number, so in this case the goal would be to consume no more than 1600 -1700 calories every day. By doing this your body has no choice but to dip in to your excess fat stores and use those calories for energy.
