The main ingredient for fat loss is to ensure you are in a calorie deficit. Simply put – we need to burn more calories than we consume. And while there are many factors that can inhibit fat loss such as stress, hormones and exercise choice – the number one determining factor is a calorie deficit.
You can work towards achieving this by moving more. Take the stairs instead of the elevator or parking further away to increase your energy expenditure. Track your daily steps and slightly increase the target weekly to allow for progression.
Ensure your diet consists of lean protein sources along with fruits and vegetables and added grains. Add unsaturated fats like avocados, salmon and almonds in moderation.
It’s always beneficial to have an idea of your daily food intake because if your weight is not shifting, you likely need to eat less. Kitchen scales and weight loss apps are great tools to help with this.
Always aim for progression, not perfection and be consistent and patient to ensure best results are attained and then maintained.
