Hey I haven
t done WW, so I dont know their system to well. If you care to read on, I
ll offer you my own personal advice on weight loss. I know alot of this through research Ive done because I have reactive hypoglycemia. I consistently weigh 20lbs less than I did before I started watching my diet 🙂
(this is a big schpeel I have so don`t worry if you read or use all or any of it)
As far as diet goes, I recommend reducing carbs to a bit less than what you
ll use in the period between meals and snacks. When youre ready to maintain your weight, try to eat as many carbs in that half of the day. (don
t worry, youll get a good feel for it after a while) Dont eat sugar or refined carbs, as these cause you to produce insulin (unless you are diabetic), which will make you store all the glucose that is now in your blood into fat tissue.
Protien and fibre have the opposite effect, stimulating the production of glucagon, whch releases stored energy in your body. Eating frequent meals means you can use up carbs as you eat them, and keep your production of glucagon up, meaning you`ll be getting plenty of glucose into your blood stream. Which means energy. Yay 🙂
t found my fat intake to affect my weight much at all. This may just be my metabolism, but I think it doesnt deserve it`s bad for weightloss rep.
High intensity interval cardio and strength training is your best bet for weight lose. High intensity cardio would be like skipping for a few min and then running for a few min, or sprinting then jogging, stairs then walking etc. If you`re not ready to do that intense of cardio yet, do as much as you can for a few minutes, then walk for a few. What this does is make your body need glucose immediately and take it out of stores.
I also recommend doing strength training. Find a good routine the incorporates all of your muscle groups. I do calves, quads, glutes_+hamstrings, lower back, abs, chest, upper back, shoulders, arms, and neck. Neck is really, really important to avoid injury. IMHO you can do most of this at home with a yoga mat, a couple freeweights, a small kid
s ball, the edge of your bed, and maybe an excersise ball. After youre done strength training make sure you get a good amount of protien within half an hour. Oh, and don`t worry, you wont wake up looking like a body builder, I promise. That amount of muscle takes alot of work, consideration, and usually the testosterone levels of a male body.
Try to have 1 day of rest between workout days so your body has time to heal and grow.
Good luck 🙂
