Weight loss guide.

The desire to be lean and muscular

Everyone would like to be lean and muscular. But nobody likes to diet. Yet every year dozens of magazines offer us the "ideal diet" 1 month before the holidays. Their slogan: "lose weight"!

And with the help of the marketing phenomenon, many people set themselves the challenge of following this miracle diet, which is supposed to give us a slimmer figure over 1 month. The emphasis is on "losing weight before the summer". Yet what everyone wants is not to be light, but to look good in the mirror. But losing weight is not synonymous with looking good in the mirror.

The difficulty of cutting

Looking good in the mirror is more about losing those unsightly bulges, losing a bit of belly fat, in short, losing fat - in other words, drying out. And drying out is harder than losing weight.

When you commit to going on cutting, you often commit to becoming a bit antisocial. You don't eat at the same time as everyone else, you don't go to restaurants or order diet food from the waiter. You don't drink, even when your friends are partying.

So you're likely to have a lot of people around you who will try to discourage you or tempt you with an all-too-frequently heard phrase: "This isn't a one-off!"

Well, it is! If you're start seriously a cutting, a gap can be important. It can make you want to do things differently again, and it can also make you feel guilty. So in the long term, it's easier not to go overboard than to allow yourself a little "reward" from time to time. A little tip, if you don't want to hear all the criticism that's likely to come your way if you decide to go on a diet, is to surround yourself with sportsmen and women who are in a position not to criticise your decision, who understand you better and who will even encourage you.

The diversity of body types in the weight loss diet

Just like in a mass diet, we're not all the same when it comes to a weight loss diet. Everyone has their own body type.

If you're a ectomorph, it's not certain that it will be difficult to lose fat. It's even possible that you don't have any.

If you're more of an endomorph, you won't be able to tolerate any deviations or your diet will drag on forever.

If you're mesomorph, you'll have the muscle you need to burn body fat and the results will be there.

But whatever the case, everyone will have to make an effort and sometimes give up certain tasty pleasures. That's why cutting isn't entirely synonymous with losing weight, but above all with imposing discipline on yourself.

When you decide to gain weight, a little deviation won't do too much damage. If you decide to embark on a weight loss programme, you'll have to be stricter with yourself.

So prepare yourself mentally! Visualise your goal. If your goal seems too difficult to reach, find something that will give you the strength to go all the way. A challenge such as a photo shoot or a competition. A concrete goal where you have to show off your body will help you to resist temptation as you prepare for your cutting.

Don't hesitate to aim high! It's better to aim for the moon and reach the top of the mountain than to aim for the next hill and miss it.
