Allow a 2-3 minute cool down by moving at a slow pace at the end of your cardio workout. Interval training take a lot of stamina. Work your way into it over time. Start with 5-10 minutes and work your way up until you can handle longer sessions of 20-30 minutes.

Your body reacts differently to the type of food source you’re consuming. Fat for instance is processed quickly by your body since very little chemical breakdown needs to done it for your body to use it. As such, when you consume fat your body will either use it as an immediate source of energy or store it as fat.
A healthy, sustainable rate of weight loss is 1 to 2 pounds per week. When you first start a diet plan and make drastic changes in the way you eat and move, you may lose more weight initially in the form of water. This rapid weight loss should level off after a couple of weeks, however.

The secret lies in something called ‘postprandial thermogenesis’. It may sound like something straight out of the science lab, but it’s the reason why high-protein foods like chicken and eggs are your weight loss allies in the battle against the bulge. Digesting protein is more energy-intensive than any other food (about 50-100% more than carbohydrates!) and the good news is that all of this extra work uses up energy in the form of calories.
Peppers are a great weight-loss food since all varieties contain capsaicin, a natural metabolism booster, says Lisa C. Cohn, a registered dietitian and owner of Park Avenue Nutrition in New York. Add them into salsa or eat them fresh, roasted, or stuffed to reap their better-body benefits.

Determine first how many calories you burn per day using an online calculator, then consume 500 to 1,000 fewer calories daily. If that puts you below the minimum recommended 1,200 calories for a woman, or 1,800 calories for a man, plan to add more exercise and to potentially settle for a slower rate of loss than 1 to 2 pounds per week. You want to take in this minimum number of calories to help ensure balanced nutrition and to ward off potential binge eating that results from the feelings of deprivation.
Weight loss is 70% what you eat and 30% exercise. Many people often think exercise is more important in weight loss and they disregard the healthy diet part. That is why Step #3 is to move more. You don’t have to train for a marathon to lose weight, however exercise will speed up the process and, perhaps more importantly, tone your body.
Vegetables have all the nutrients you need to sustain your body. Potatoes have carbohydrates, peas have protein, and carrots and beans are full of fiber and essential vitamins (2).

“Your body begins to work differently. This study proves that small amounts of nourishment throughout the day are better than the same amount of food concentrated in three big sittings. If we feed the body at regular intervals we send a signal to the body that it doesn’t have to store calories. Conversely, when we skip meals we send just the opposite signal for the body to store calories, creating a negative effect on the metabolism.” — Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen, co-founder and Medical Director at Take Shape For Life
After dinner, wash all the dishes, wipe down the counters, turn out the light, and, if necessary, tape closed the cabinets and refrigerator.

I’ve been trying to stick with a 15% deficit in my cutting calories (1339). However, I feel like I am STARVING with 1300-1400 (so I know I’ll be starving also on a 20% deficit) and usually end up feeling satisfied around 1550-1600 cals. I do eat plenty of fruits/veggies and always get enough protein everyday (at 1-1.1x my body weight), but still feel hungry with 1300-1400. I strength train 3-4x a week (medium-high intensity depending on what I’m training), total of 3-3.5 hours including cardio. Otherwise I am pretty sedentary (work from home). Any suggestions? Do you think I need to be eating more, or should I just suck it up and stay hungry? I know I need a deficit to lose fat, but is it normal to feel this hungry when cutting, at my amount of exercise?
