Running for weight loss

    Tips to weight loss with running
The race is perhaps one of the most effective ways to lose weight, but that does not mean that it is a magic bullet. In fact, you can gain a few pounds when you start to lose fat and gain muscle mass, which is denser and heavier than fat. But if you are consistent with your race and you stick to a healthy diet, you will literally run those excess pounds.

Here are some of the strategies with the most successful for riders who want to lose weight:

1. Do not skip meals
You will not lose weight faster if you skip meals. In fact, it will just make you hungrier, which increases your temptation to eat everything in sight. You also do not burn as many calories during your run if you were well fed.

2. Run several times a week
People who have managed to lose weight and keep it burning about 2,800 calories a week through exercise. Assuming an average of 100 calories per mile, which is about 45km, so make it your goal if you use race as a form of exercise. Do not worry about your pace or intensity of your run - just run those miles will burn those calories.

3. Be patient
We are all looking for a quick fix when it comes to weight loss, but do not expect to succeed just by race. A rate of healthy weight loss is half a pound a week, so do not anticipate losing more than that. Set a reasonable goal for weight loss, like five pounds in two months.

4. Strength training (weight training)
Not only will you burn calories while you do weight training, but increased lean muscle mass will improve your performance, you'll be able to run faster and longer, and burn more calories during your races. Strength training also helps prevent running injuries, you will be able to maintain your driving engagement remaining without injury.

5. Spread your calories
It is better to eat several small meals and snacks throughout the day than eating a huge lunch, and dinner. This will reduce your temptation to binge and you will also gain more flexibility in planning your shopping because you do not have to wait until you digériez your big meal.

Aim for some vegetables - tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, spinach and others, for example - at every meal. They are full of fiber, so you feel satisfied and less likely to eat or be brought to a high calorie dessert too.

7. Follow your diet
Write down everything you eat and drink for at least a few days. You might be surprised at how many calories you take in, but it will help you identify areas for improvement. You can track your foods in your diet diary, so you can see what kind of food affects your performance.
