Losing 20 pounds of fat in a month is possible if you really put your mind into it. The first obstacle that could hinder your way towards losing that amount of fat is your half-hearted decision to lose weight. But, if you are really determined and committed, then it will be possible. Actually, you really do not need any kind of fad diets and trendy exercises to help you lose weight; it’s actually just common sense. If you eat more and move less, then you will surely get fat; if you eat enough and move more, then you will surely lose fats and strengthen yourself.
Losing weight depends on the diet, cardiovascular activity, and strength training. In the dieting part, you just eat anything healthy and avoid sugary, grains, and greasy foods. If you must use oil to fry your food, then use vegetable or coconut oil. Also, eat a lot of fruits and vegetables to reduce your cravings for grains.
To burn the fats you need to move. Do 20 to 40 minutes of cardiovascular exercise 3 to 4 times a week. A walk in the park and light jog will suffice. What is important is that you felt your heart pumping. If it’s not pumping then you are not doing any cardiovascular exercise at all. Combining your cardiovascular exercise with strength training will give best results. So, if you walk, bring along with you some dumbbells and climb stairs and steep roads. Body weights exercises like push-ups, squats and pull-ups will help a lot.
If you do this diligently, then you will definitely lose 20 pounds or more in a months time. The worse thing could happen will be losing at least 10 pounds. So, forget those fad diets and exercises and focus with what’s proven and tested for all time.
