Diet and exercise ‘key for those looking to lose weight fast’
Those looking to lose weight fast through their exercise regime must ensure they tailor both their diet and the timing of meals to maximise their benefits, an expert has claimed.
Andrew Haworth, sports nutritionist at healthydoesit.co.uk, has highlighted the importance that this plays in a person's fitness and wellbeing.
He emphasised the importance of recovery, where muscles replenish their glycogen stores, and stressed the need to eat a meal including carbohydrates shortly after the completion of exercise.
Mr Haworth also said: "A balanced diet of carbohydrates, protein and healthy fats – unsaturated fats, omega 3, 6 etc – is the basic platform for a healthy diet that will help to aid fitness and sports performance."
He advised those looking to lose weight fast to eat three meals and three snacks a day in order to get optimum results.
Earlier this month, a study published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine suggested that those looking at how to lose weight fast may want to try cognitive strategies to boost their exercise self-confidence and chances of success.
