5 Tips To Help You Lose 25 Pounds (Or More) Of Body-fat

What's up it's Brian from GaniFit and in this blog what we are going to talk about are 5 tips that you can implement over the next couple of months to take the first steps in transforming your body and achieving the fat loss results you desire.

Before we jump into this blog, I wanted to give you a little background on myself and my story.  I am someone who has dropped 25 pounds of fat and completely changed my eating habits, which in turn changed my life.  

I literally used to eat at McDonalds 4-5 days per week.  I would rarely, if ever drink water and it seems like I would have 2-3 cavities in my teeth every time I would go to the dentist.  I was headed down a dark road and would've kept going if I didn't implement just a few healthier habits into my eating routine.

I would guess that if I would have never changed my habits that right now I would probably be 100 pounds heavier than I currently am.

So where are you right now?  Do you want to just drop a few pounds of fat or do you wish to lose a substantial amount?  Whatever it is, these 5 tips I am going to share with you here today will drastically help you accomplish your goal.

Drink water

By far the biggest change I made in my life to this day is by switching out drinking pop with drinking water.  Not only is pop empty calories, but it was the biggest contributor to how many cavities I have.

It has also been shown to cause diabetes because of the high sugar content in pop.

If you are like I used to be and drink pop on a daily basis, with every meal, then you know that switching to water can be extremely hard.  

So what I suggest here is starting off slow.  At first just switch out one glass of pop with one glass of water and keep improving from there.

Currently I drink 2 bottles of water within the first 10 minutes of waking up.  If you would've asked me 5 years ago if I would be doing this, I wouldn't even be able to picture it!

You can literally transform your entire life just by implementing water into your diet, but just because it is such a game changer, that doesn't mean there aren't other ways to help you lose weight.  Just think of implementing water into your diet as a tool in your toolbelt.

5 tips to help you lose 25 pounds of fat

Intermittent fasting

I want to start off by saying that intermittent fasting is another great tool, but it isn't some magic way to just get lean and shredded.  You can intermittent fast and still gain weight if you are going overboard on what you eat during your eating window.

That being said, what I like about intermittent fasting is that it gives you a way to only have a set amount of time to eat.

This means you are less likely to eat all day and snack on food that you shouldn't be snacking on (if its outside of your eating window).

I personally like the way it trains my mind to not always seek the instant gratification of eating food right when I wake up.

Walk at least 3 days per week for 30 minutes (or more)

Walking is something that I have found to not only be a great way to get some relaxing cardio and burn a few extra calories, but its also very fun.  Maybe you are someone who hates to get onto the treadmill and run, or maybe you are currently unable to run in the first place.  Walking is a great way to not only burn a little bit of fat, but calm the mind and enjoy the nature or city that you live in.

I started walking about 3 years ago, and its something that I still do today.  I actually look forward to a walk.  And if I am feeling stressed I will find any excuse to get out and go for a walk on a nice day.

Even just walking for 30 minutes a day for 3 days per week you will start to notice a difference in your life!

Implement protein rich foods

This tip is one that I just recently picked up but I know that it is very true.  By eating protein rich foods you will feel fuller most of the time.  This is actually what I am currently doing to lean bulk and it has helped me tremendously. 

Now if you are someone who is over weight I highly recommend getting foods such as chicken breast or tuna, which have very low calories and high protein.  These food can also fill up your entire plate and still be far  less than 1,000 calories.

Right now one of my favorite meals that's simple, easy, and cheap to make is literally just a bowl of brown rice and a can of tuna.  For me this can fill me up for hours.  

If you pair this tip with intermittent fasting, and drinking water, losing weight will be effortless.

Take cheat days

This may sound weird to you but I am being completely serious.  Literally take cheat days.  

Cheat days will keep you sane while you are on your fat loss journey.  They give you a way to reward yourself for eating healthy and practicing the rest of the habits we talked about above, and help you to allow yourself to eat out at places with the people you care about.

This is the hardest part about losing fat is when you are always being tempted to eat the things those around you are eating.  

But if you allow yourself to take a cheat day or cheat meal every once and a while you are able to have fun, and stick to your diet.  (I personally take s cheat day every week or two.)

Bonus: Don't restrict calories to an unhealthy limit

One of the biggest mistakes I have made was a couple years ago when I was trying to get shredded and I restricted myself to 1,200 calories per day. 

Sure I was dropping fat, but this caloric deficit was far below my maintenance calories.  This caused me to lose months of muscle gain, and once I came to my senses, it made me gain the fat back because my body was used to the low calories at this point.

Restricting calories to an extreme is usually a bad idea and just ends in losing your progress.

Closing thoughts

I hope these 5 tips of how to lose your first 25 pounds of fat have been beneficial to you.  I would love to hear which tip you are going to implement today (I recommend the tip on drinking water).
