Top Tips For Fat Loss
Number 1 for fat loss is always what you eat, you cannot out-train a bad diet! You need to be in a calorie deficit (burning more calories than you consume) and remember that calories still count on weekends! Most people are perfect Monday to Friday and then eat it all back on over the weekend or more.
Focus on non-processed, whole foods. You will need a good balance of protein, healthy fats and carbohydrates.
Remove any added sugars that you put into tea/coffee, porridge etc.
You should try to track your food for at least a week or two so that you get an idea of exactly how many calories you are having. MyFitnessPal is a good food tracker app, try it out and see how it works for you.
Drink 2-3 litres of water daily.
Exercise regularly, find something that you enjoy doing otherwise it will not be sustainable.
Make the time for your training and food preparation. There will always be something else to do, make it a priority or try getting it done before work so that you cannot put it off.
Take progress photos – the scales are not always ideal, your weight will fluctuate day to day and you may not notice the weight slowly coming off until you check back to your start point.
Get 6-8 hours’ sleep per night and try to reduce your stress levels.
Finally, you will need CONSISTENCY and PATIENCE! This will not happen overnight or if you keep giving in to every temptation. Stay consistent with your training and diet (a little treat is needed every now and again, but learn to say no sometimes too!).
