Simple lifestyle changes and training tips to help you shift some serious weight
So it’s time for hefty changes. Maybe you’ve never set foot in a gym before – or maybe you were once in shape and let things slide. Either way, making the decision to get back to it can be intimidating. Maybe you don’t know what to do at the gym, or you need a better handle on the basics of nutrition.
Here’s the good news: at this stage of your transformation, everything you do will make a difference. Drink more water, cut out a couple of beers a week, move around a bit more, hit the gym twice a week, and your gut should recede. This is also where you should aim to build skills that you’ll keep once the first flush of motivation fades – learn the absolute basics of efficient lifting and healthy cooking, for instance, and you’ll never need to do it again. Before you know it, you’ll be hooked on the endorphin high of regular exercise and looking forward to the gym rather than dreading it.
