How to keep it off (5 Hot Body Secrets)

It takes dedicated hard work to drop a significant number of pounds. But afterwards it’s incredibly easy (and frustrating!) to find those pounds creeping back on.

 

Maintaining fat loss is certainly possible, however it does require that you remain vigilant with your healthy routine. Fads and crash diets don’t work, because as soon as you go back to your regular routine your body rebounds - and then some.

 

Here are 5 secrets to maintaining your amazing body transformation for life. Think of these as your own personal lifestyle rules and stick with them at least 90% of the time to keep your body healthy and thriving.

 

Hot Body Secret #1: Don’t Eat Just To Eat

There is no place in your healthy lifestyle for mindless snacking. I’m talking about a tub of popcorn at the movies or a bag of chips in front of the TV. All the calories ingested from mindless snacking have to end up somewhere…and it’s rarely where you want them to go.

 

Snacks are fine when you are aware of how much you’re eating in order to balance it with the rest of your meals for the day. (If you’re stuck on what to eat, we can help!)

 

Hot Body Secret #2: Stand (And Walk) When Possible

Have you heard the saying sitting is the new smoking? The idea is that a lifetime of sitting all-day-every-day is as harmful to your body as smoking. Think for a moment about how much of your day is spent sitting.

 

You wake up and sit down for breakfast. You sit on the drive to work. You take the elevator up. You sit for most of 8 hours at work. You take the elevator down. You sit on the drive home. You sit to eat dinner. You sit to watch TV.

 

That’s quite a bit of time spent sitting! Now imagine if you consciously stood for some of this time each day and took the stairs instead of the elevator. Over weeks, and months, it really adds up in calories burned, muscles engaged, and overall fitness and health.

 

Hot Body Secret #3: Avoid Sugar

I might sound like a broken record about this one, but that’s OK, I’ll keep harping on this point until more people listen. Our bodies weren’t designed to ingest large amounts of sugar on a daily basis. When you regularly take in excess sugar the results are always the same. You gain weight, you have less energy, your health deteriorates.

 

(Fun fact: your immune system is suppressed by as much as 50 percent after you eat sugar!)

 

The tricky part is that sugar is all around us, so avoiding it takes real vigilance - it’s okay to start small.

 

Start with your morning beverage of choice. Does it have sugar in it? Most of the beverages that are blended and brewed at coffee shops are simply vehicles for ingesting sugar. Find a beverage that you enjoy without any added sugar and stick with the rule of not drinking sugary beverages throughout your day.

 

Hot Body Secret #4: Keep Dinner Light

Who says that dinner should be the biggest and heartiest meal of the day? Instead, focus on enjoying light dinners that are centered around protein and veggies and avoid starches and carbs in the evening (unless, of course, you’re in your window).

 

We have a ton of great recipes that fit this profile. Check them out on our blog!

 

Hot Body Secret #5: Do More Than Exercise

How often do you brush your teeth? Do you sometimes take a few weeks or months off brushing your teeth? Um, no. That’s gross. You brush your teeth everyday as an ongoing habit because you know that the benefits outweigh the slight inconvenience.

 

The same applies to exercise - but keep in mind that “activity” doesn’t change the body.

 

Exercise only works when you do it as an ongoing habit and it’s the kind that actually changes your body. Simply moving or doing the same routine isn’t going to cut it.

 

If you’re struggling to stay consistent or feeling like your routine isn’t making the difference you want, we’re here to make your daily exercise habit fun and effective. Our workouts are designed specifically to change your body and help you sustain those changes for life, without having to cut more and more calories and add more and more exercise.
