It's hard enough to burn off those calories, but with Zumba exercise ... a typical workout burns almost 1000 calories.
Here are some helpful tips From Zumba to keep those fat calories burning and to shed fat :
1. Eat 6 small meals- Eating every few hour's pumps your metabolism for faster fat loss
2. Combine lean protein and complex carbs ONLY.
3. Drink 2 to 3 liters of water per day (depending on your caloric output).
4. Don't skip meals.
5. Pack your food for the day every morning or the night before, if you plan it out, you will stick to healthier eating.
6. Natural foods are best, fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, lean cuts of meat... avoid processed and refined foods, white flour and sugar.
7. Replace unhealthy trans fats with healthy fats, olive, canola, flax oil and nut butters.
8. Avoid alcohol on a regular basis.
9. Practice portion control.
10. Snack healthy- Almonds, some fruit are great choices
Here is a lean and healthy sample menu as recommended by Zumba
1/4 cup steel cut oats cooked in 1 cup rice milk, toss in a few raisins & cinnamon or...
a protein shake, scoop your favorite vanilla protein powder, 4 frozen strawberries, 1 cup milk or...
4 egg whites cooked with slice of low fat cheese and veggies of your choice.
AM Snack: Low fat yogurt
Lunch: 6 oz lean protein + veggie of your choice (you can add a whole grain bred here too). Condiments ok, no full fat mayo.
Afternoon Snack: 1-2 oz low fat cheese or cottage cheese, or sweet potato, or piece of fruit.
Dinner: 6 oz lean protein + veggie, + salad, oil and vinegar or oil and lemon juice...add grated Parmesan cheese, nuts or beans for added protein (just watch you portions). I don't recommend carbs after the 4PM hour as you body generally does not have enough time to burn it off.
PM Snack: 1/2 cup low fat ice cream or fruit or 6 almonds, 1 table spoon of nut butter.
Stick closely to this meal plan and do your ZUMBA exercise and you will see amazing body changing results quicker than you could imagine. Depending on what foods you add and subtract from this sample menu... this is between 1500 & 2000 calories per day. Have fun with Zumba exercise.Zumba Exercise - Top 10 Tips to Lose Weight Fast
