#7 GO TO SLEEP!! Getting enough sleep regulates your metabolism AND When you are sleep-deprived, hormones that regulate metabolism and increase hunger are affected, stimulating an increase in consuming calories. The likely result is weight gain.
#8 FOCUS ON QUALITY NOT QUANITY … 15 min of interval training (go fast and then slow and repeat) is more effective than 30 min on the cardio equipment BUT USING ALL YOUR MUSCLES REALLY FIRES IT UP..get off the machines and try jump rope for an even faster burn. We see it everyday, Working out longer does not yield better results but it your all...does
#9 RECOVER: recovery is essential! Proper warm up before, recovery & hydration during and stretching after is essential. After strength training, give your body 24 hours rest before training again BUT DO NOT STOP WORKING OUT!! Do cardio the next day while you are recovering &U your body is working out building muscle.
#10 EAT! Starving yourself will not help you lose weight PERMANTLY AND NOT WILL CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR METABOLISM. Women need about 1200 calories to just maintain function. NEVER GO MORE THAN 3 Hours without eating. Focus on small meals and a fruit or veggie at every meal. GET 5 servings of veggies, at least 1 servings of beans and tons of protein to LOOSE THE WEIGHT!!! AND GET YOU SUMMER BODY
