People often mistakenly think that in order to lose weight, you simply need to exercise. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Of course exercise is paramount if you’re really wanting to shred the fat, but there’s several other things that you need to keep in mind, if you’re ever going to fit into that dress, or get the 6 pack you’ve always dreamed of. Here’s 6 things you need to remember when trying to lose weight.
1. You don’t have enough muscle
The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn. Fat and muscle tissues consume calories all day long whether you’re running, reading or sleeping. No matter what you’re doing, muscle rips through more calories than fat. So it’s not just about jumping on the treadmill for half an hour. Strength working is just as important. In fact studies have shown that building muscle over cardio is actually better for losing weight!
