Lose 20 Pounds In 30 Days

With all the new diet fads out today it is hard to find one that will work for everyone. But most of those diet plans go about weight loss the wrong way. They want you to count calories and everything else. They do not focus on the giving your body the right nutrition it needs. If you are looking to lose 20 pounds in 30 days you don't have to starve yourself to do it. You just need to give your body the proper nutrition it needs.


With the proper protein intake instead of loosing lean tissue it will help you loose that fatty tissue you are looking to get rid of. Taking enough proteins in your diet helps you lose fat by helping to keep your metabolism revved up. Did you know that for every pound of muscle you have you burn 14 calories compared to around 3 calories burned by a pound of fat? That is a pretty big difference if you ask me. So the more lean muscle you have to more calories you can burn when you are at rest. This is called your metabolism.


When you take in more calories than you burn with exercise and your resting metabolic rate those calories with be stored as extra fat in your body. So the higher you get you metabolism the better you will be able to maintain the right balance between your calories in and the calories you burn. By doing exercises to strengthen your lean tissues you will also improve your bodies ability to burn those calories when you are at rest.

One of the biggest issues that people have when trying to lose 20 pound in 30 days is that they are on their own to figure out what will work. That is the biggest reason people go from weight loss program to weight loss program without ever seeing any results. Having someone to help with your weight loss that is trained on the topic can be the biggest asset when you are looking to loose that unwanted body fat.

There are programs out there that have personal wellness coaches that will work with you every step of the way. If you have any questions they are there to answer. They will work with you one on one to meet your weight loss goals and before you know it you will lose 20 pounds in 30 days. Who knows, it is possible to loose more if you would like.
