Programs work for those that stick with them and do the work involved
As a women, I relish the simplicity of a thought out strategy, and one that will create results. This is why strength training and food programs work really well. It’s very conveniently outlined for you to follow. Step by step, day by day. I can’t think of a better way to get results of any kind. Perhaps this is just me and my own personality.
What works best for you? Plans or leaving things to chance?
I don’t believe programs only work best for women, they are helpful for people in general, especially those that stick to them. Our nature is to seek answers and strategies to solve problems. When it comes to weight loss, the importance of monitoring what you eat and the activity you perform is imperative to your results. Leaving things to chance or random searches on the internet aren’t going to give you results.
Perhaps women are more inclined to seek advice than men are. Maybe we are more stringent and critical of what we eat on a daily basis. Women are most definitely a lot more concerned about their appearance and what others think of them. Men on the other hand, don’t become bogged down with that chitter chatter.
When a woman wants to lose weight or build muscle, she pushes forward with the work needed to get the results. That also means sticking to a diet, and making sure they are diligent in preparing as much as possible, bringing their friends and family into the picture for support.
Our metabolic systems are different
One key thing about men and women, is that we have a completely different metabolic system, and respond differently to forms of exercise. Women are more efficient at burning fat, men burn carbohydrates. Although both respond well with healthy food and proper exercise, men have the upper hand when it comes to building muscle and become leaner (testosterone obviously). That’s not to say women cant, but we are programmed differently. Because of this, perhaps it leads us to making different decisions than men and possibly experiencing results.
What works and what doesn’t?
The exercise that will work best for you, is most definitely something you are passionate about. If you pursue something of interest, you are more likely to experience results. Diet is key to weight loss, but exercise is a fundamental component in getting us there a lot faster. Use them both to your advantage. Get advice if you need to.
What is your goal? What do you want to achieve and why? These are the questions to ask yourself. Women will do this regularly, and chat to their friends about it. Do you want to lose weight or build muscle – or both!
They key is discipline
Discipline means sticking to your goal and working through the challenges as you meet them. It’s not about giving in, it’s keeping that vision in mind, and doing what’s needed. Some days we can’t be bothered, this is true, but one must breakthrough this thought pattern seeing it for what it is. Just a thought in the moment that’s not going to stop us from getting to where we want to go.
So, don’t set yourself limiting believes that one thing works best for women or men. What works best is something we follow through with and work hard to achieve. There is no doubt that giving something your all will most definitely give you results. Stick to something and see it through, changing when needed. Have that sticking power and keep it up.
