What is the best way to lose weight?

The age old question often asked, is what is better to lose weight? Cardiovascular training, or lifting weights or diet. The answer at it’s most basic level is quite simple, to lose weight you need to be in a calorie deficit where you burn more calories per day than what you ingest.

To speed up the weight loss process, we can either perform resistance or cardio training. Both styles of training are beneficial for losing weight. They work hand in hand together, hence neither is better than the other.

Cardio training generally burns more calories during the session and keeps us fit, whilst resistance training creates more lean muscle mass which essentially burns more calories in everyday life.

Work these two styles of training simultaneously and you have the essential weight loss formula. Ideally you should try and aim for two or more strength training sessions per week and move as much as you can maybe aim to reach 10,000 steps per day to increase your non exercise thermogenesis (movement while not precisely exercising).
