Sleep more: If you think about losing your weight you must maintain a specific nutrition plan but did you think about you bedtime too?  Adequate sleep is also a part of your life style, it effects your health, weight, mind and psychology.

Try to have proper amounts of good and deep sleep (between 7 to 9 hours per night). When your body get its proper rest more calories and fats will be lost in contrast lack of sleep will push you to the direction of food and non stop eating. As a result, for a better health you should prioritize sleep.

Workouts: You can fail so many times not because it  was difficult or hard but because you didn’t do it the right way. Here is three common mistakes that beginners make in order to get a shaped body: 

Working out for too long:  when you start working out your body is not used to support that much of stress. You can begin with 30 to 60 min per day. starting with compound exercises  and ending with isolation movements.

Adopt your own workout routine: Do not copy someone else routine, although you think it is a good start but remember you want to move on your week points and shed your weight and not to be your partner.

Not feeding your muscle after workouts due to fear of gaining fat is a common mistake. Remember it is really important to eat fast assimilating protein food after exercising and don’t let yourself starving.
