Losing fat can be a challenge if you have an endomorph body type. One of the primary reasons is related to nutrition. You must eat right for your body type.
If not you will be spinning your wheels and scratching your head wondering why your last diet didn’t work. This article will reveal endomorph diet and nutrition tips you can put to use right now.
Eat Smaller Meals
This is a tip that many know about but fail to practice. Those with an endomorph body type need to pay even more attention to this. Smaller meals will speed up your metabolism.
One of your biggest challenges will be a slow and sluggish metabolism. Therefore you need to do everything in your power to speed it up. Smaller more frequent meals is one of the most powerful metabolism boosting strategies in your arsenal.
While it can appear to be more inconvenient at first there are tons of ideas to make it work. You can bring quick snacks with you like boiled eggs, tuna and fruit.
You can even put some protein powder inside an empty water bottle and add some cold water when you are ready for a quick meal. That comes in really handy at work or at school.
Be careful not to start running before you learn how to walk. Worrying about which type of multivitamin is better for you is meaningless if you haven’t mastered the basics yet.
As an endomorph you must learn to be more compliant with the things you do know. That is how you will often get ahead.
Choose Slower Absorbing Carbs
Not all carbs are created equal. Picture a pure milk chocolate bar and an apple. Which do think is better?
While that example is a little extreme it is important to pay attention to which foods you are getting your carbs from. Ignorance is not bliss and it does make a difference.
Stay away from processed sources like white rice, white bread, high sugar breakfast cereals etc. Stick to good natural sources like whole wheat bread and pasta, brown rice, oatmeal and vegetables.
Carbs like this are much more beneficial for fat loss because they are absorbed much slower into your system. They will be less likely to be stored as fat because you won’t be getting huge insulin spikes.
A better way to judge food choices is to ask yourself how much they are processed. Generally speaking, the more processed a food is the worse it will be for you.
A little common sense can go a long way. At a grocery store you will notice that most of the outside aisles have healthier choices while the inside aisles contain poorer choices.
Eat a Larger Breakfast
Eating a larger breakfast will also help you to burn fat more efficiently because you burn more energy during the day. As evening draws on your metabolism starts to slow down.
When you first wake up your body hasn’t had food in around 8 hours therefore it is starving for nutrients. The food will be assimilated and used much better than if you were to eat a larger meal in the evening.
However that is what people do. They eat hardly anything for breakfast and then they are starving by lunch or dinnertime. Once you are that hungry it is very hard to stop eating once you have started.
One of the reasons people are not hungry in the morning is because they eat too much at night before bed. If you find that you do not have time try going to bed a little earlier so that you can wake up a little earlier.
You may also eat your meals in order from largest to smallest. Doing so will ensure your body is processing the food the best way it can and you will be burning fat much faster.
I hope that this article has given you some insights into reasons why your efforts might not be working. An endomorph diet must address specific issues and then deal with accordingly.
