LOSE WEIGHT LIKE A GUY
Men can be such losers ... when it comes to weight loss. LOL! Some guys can just cut back on how much beer they drink and drop five pounds a month without doing much else. Yes, ladies we know it can be frustrating! Here's the deal: you can learn a thing or two from the way men drop pounds. Here are four tips to help you lose weight like a guy according to Yahoo Shine ...
- He lifts heavy weights. Women tend to use small weights and do isolated exercises -- which means lots of work for limited results. Instead, lift like a guy and take on weights that make you strain to do 8 to 10 reps.
- He doesn't use food as a therapist. Women are twice as likely to use food to fight depression and twice as likely to get depressed in the first place -- making them four times more likely than men to emotionally eat! Take a breath. Try to determine whether you're eating your emotions or you're actually hungry
- He makes time for himself. Women often find their only refuge in food. Instead, make time just for you every day, and plan semi-regular treats -- like a spa day -- so that you always have something to look forward to.
- He doesn't give up favorite foods. Guys usually cut back rather than eliminate their favorite foods. Women often go all or nothing -- then end up binging when their willpower breaks. Try allowing a small portion of your favorites every other day, so that you never feel deprived.
Just Asking ... Have you ever gone on a diet with your guy? What was the most frustrating thing about it?
