Being body conscious isn’t the realm of women alone, many men battle ill feelings about their bodies. If this is the situation you find yourself in I can only advise that you talk to someone with knowledge of this issue you face. As a fitness instructor and nutritional advisor, I’m in no position to give advice on such a matter but I hope you find solace in your own skin real soon.

This post is about how one can lose weight and the best course of action to achieve this goal. My name is Hanif and I help men in the UK and worldwide get into better shape and tune their eating habits so they can live longer, stronger and pain-free lives.

Losing weight sounds like an easy thing to do from the man looking in from the outside, just do some exercise, just eat like a rabbit, just, just, just! Yeah, for some men it is easy to lose weight which could be down to their genetics, metabolism, upbringing as it relates to food and exercise, for some people it is easy.

For any of you guys that are struggling to lose weight here are a few steps, you can take to increase your chances of losing weight week after week until you hit your target. 

An exercise is a form of physical activity that one engages in, eliciting various effects upon the body. Cardiovascular exercise such as rowing can be done on a river or indoors at your local gym; the exercise you do should be that which you’ll enjoy enough to do on a regular basis. Strength training using kettlebells, weights machines and/or dumbbells are also worth incorporating into your regular training week because they will help you tone your body as you lose weight, avoiding saggy and stretched skin.

Fasting is another way to weight-loss that I highly recommend. If you’ve never tried leaving off food and drink for half a day or so you’ll be amazed at how it helps you in restraining your desire for food, drink and other worldly enjoyments. Abrahamic faiths have fasting traditions that fasting to be performed in specific ways and times. You don’t have to be religious to fast, these days more and more people are coming to understand that fasting from the standpoint of bodily health and giving your internal digestive organs a rest will help one perform better and maintain good health.

Diet restriction is another great way to control and lose weight. Food and drink are made up of calories. If you eat too many calories, more than your body needs over a prolonged amount of time you’ll find that you’ll be gaining weight. So, reduce the number of calories you consume per day and you’ll reduce the weight your body is carrying. Meal prep is a great way to control your nutritional diet since you can measure and regulate the quantities of food you eat over a week. It’s important that you consume all of the food groups, get fibre and omega3’s into your diet to increase your overall health.

A combination of all the above would be the ultimate way to lose weight and do so in a balanced way. Regular exercise increases lung capacity, muscle size, strength and so on. Fasting gives your digestive system a much-needed rest and eating food that goes in line with your health goals will help your mood, libido and much more. I’m fully convinced that if you utilise these aspects of healthy living you’ll reach your goal weight and feel better for it.
