Planning to lose weight? with Muzzafar Hussain Zaman

Muzzafar Hussain Zaman

Planning to lose weight? - Yeah me too! I've tried everything from Atkins to juicing, but still found nothing works as well as a proper lifestyle change. If you are thinking of trying to shed a few pounds don't spend out on going to weight watchers or other such groups - you can lose the weight with just a little motivation.

I like to use an app to keep track of the calories I'm consuming. That way if I go over my allotted calorie intake I can do some extra exercise to compensate. I can personally recommend My Fitness Pal it is free to use and has a really big database of foods to aid with your calorie counting, It also has a barcode scanner to help to that end. If you get the opportunity I can recommend the Cook Yourself Thin Books for inspiration too. They take unhealthy classics and put a healthy twist on them. The meals in that book are delicious

Before and After weight loss

Somebody who is no stranger to fluctuating weight is reality star Kim Kardashian. To be fair she has been pregnant and it is always a struggle to lose baby weight. And it isn't as if she didn't look gorgeous with a more shapely figure anyway. She didn't break the internet with a tiny backside did she? Although some unscrupulous people have suggested that her post preggo weight loss was not entirely natural! Scandal! Kim claims that it was a combination of yoga and exercise. Who knows?

This week in weight loss - Green teas are big right now. I've used a couple and they are excellent at combining with fat to help you reduce your weight. Though they can make you stools a little loose! Cho yung tea is especially effective and can be found at places like Holland and Barret.

If you get a chance pick up a copy of the Juice master diet - whilst I can't say I enjoyed doing the full course, even swapping a lunch for one of the delicious juices is worthwhile.

Herbalife seems to be fairly popular right now. I have a Facebook friend who has seemingly transformed himself whilst using this plan. Although I did recently see a picture of a Herbalife van parked in a McDonalds drive through which I have to admit gave me a bit of a chuckle.

Consistent Gains with Dr Muzzafar Zaman

How to make consistent gains

Anyone who has ever reached their goal body will tell you the same thing: the first day in the gym is easy compared to the 100th time. Finding the motivation to continue to improve yourself beyond that initial burst can be difficult, but there are a few time-honoured ways to keep yourself on the right track.

Set achievable goals

Let's say you want to gain 20lbs of lean mass for the summer. That sounds easy all the way up until you step on the scale and are, yet again, feeling miles away from your goal. A more realistic goal is to set an amount you want to gain each fortnight/month. On the first of each month weigh yourself and note the progress you've made from the month before.

When you check in and notice that you've gained the amount you're looking for on a regular basis, it's easier to keep your mind at rest with regards to your larger goal. Rather than seeing you have 16lbs left, you'll see you have only 2lbs left for your monthly weight in. It'll do wonders for your confidence.

Go to the gym even when you don't feel like it

It's very easy to let a schedule slide. It's even harder to get back to it when you've missed too many days. One missed day becomes another, and before you know it, it has been a week since you last worked out. Try to maintain a steady routine and go to the gym regardless of how tired you may be.

Even if you can only get through half of your workout, you've at least got something done and will allow your body to continue making progress.

Your diet is key

As mentioned in the last point, consistency is very important for making consistent gains. Your diet is no exception. It can be a real challenge to force yourself to eat your required calorie allowance each and every day, so make it easy on yourself. Stock up on healthy foods that are full of calories. Nuts, bananas, and olive oil are all great additions to your food budget that aren't as filling as their calorie content would have you believe.
