Even with the best of intentions, people tend to go about their fat loss journey the wrong way and end up making the process more difficult than it needs to be. If fat loss is your goal but you’re not seeing the progress you were hoping for, here 👇🏻 are some mistakes you might be making ⤵️
When it comes to fat loss, consistency always trumps perfection. Every time you get off track, commit to getting right back on ✅.
The #1 rule of eating 🍽 for fat/weight loss is you must be in a calorie deficit. You can be eating all of the healthiest foods 🥗🍎🥑🍳🍗🐟💦, but if you’re eating more calories than you are burning, the body fat won’t budge.
Exercise doesn’t burn that many calories, so it helps to increase your activity outside the gym. Go for walks, stand instead of sit, do mobility work, clean the house, etc. All of this extra activity can go a long way in helping burn more calories. –
Paleo, keto, low carb, low fat, etc. can all work ✅. But what’s most important is finding 🔎 a way of eating that best suits you. If you hate the way you are eating, you will not ❌ be able to adhere to it consistently. And don’t be too restrictive. Find a way to incorporate foods you enjoy so that you don’t feel deprived 👍🏻. –
Training and dieting are stressors. Unless you give your body time to recover, you’ll have a hard time pushing yourself in the gym, and you’ll elevate stress hormones that can lead to the loss of muscle and make it more difficult to burn 🔥 fat. –
Cardio does nothing to build or maintain muscle. When fat loss is the goal, you want to keep as much muscle, which can only be done by hitting the weights .
Results don’t happen over night. Be patient, stay consistent, trust the process, and the results are sure to come
