Laws of Fat Loss: 1
Not too many things in life are guaranteed. Often times we put a lot of work into something without knowing whether our efforts will pay off in the end. This is just part of life, but with fat loss, we know we will be successful as long as we have a solid plan in place and we stick to that plan. The sticking to it is usually the part we have the most trouble with.
1) Create a Calorie Deficit
You must create a slight calorie deficit in order to lose body fat. The most effective way to do this is to exercise and control the number of calories you ingest each day. Get use to knowing the number of calories that are contained in everything you eat. This is made easy for us with nutrition labels on store bought food and nutritional information sheets available at most fast food restaurants.
2) Eat Every 2-3 Hours
You must feed your body smaller meals every 2-3 hours throughout the day. Eating this way compared to the normal 3 meals a day increases your metabolic rate significantly. It also prevents you from ever getting too hungry, which is when you are most likely to go off of your nutrition plan and consume too many calories.
3) Balance Your Meals
Every one of your small meals throughout the day should contain a source of high quality protein, carbohydrates, and “good” fat, with the exception of post workout meals, which should consist of fast digesting carbohydrates and proteins and very little or no fat. High quality meal replacements are a great way to supplement several of your meals during the day.
4) Drink Water
Drink enough water every single day. Having adequate water enables your body to function properly, including its ability to burn fat. Water also flushes toxins and impurities from the body.
5) ExerciseAlways incorporate weight training and cardiovascular exercise into your fat loss nutrition plan.
