|On your mission to lose weight, understanding how fat itself works is important. Sure, we know it as the thing we hate the most about our bodies but hating our excess fat won’t get rid of it – exercise and a healthy diet will. The more you know about how to lose fat, the more successful you’ll be in transforming your body. That’s why we’ve put together five facts you may not have known about fat loss and incorporate them into your fitness routine.
1. Products that guarantee fat loss may just be guaranteeing you money loss
Weight loss shakes, tablets, juices are known for short-term results and most of the time they only supress your appetite for a short while. These fad products are not only ineffective, but they also could be harmful! The best way to lose fat safely and to keep it off is a healthy diet and regular exercise.
2. Eat less food than you currently consume in order to create a deficit
Simply put, putting fewer calories in than the amount you’re exerting burns fat. About a 500 calorie deficit is a good place to start when putting together a caloric plan! Tailor your caloric plan to suit you and your body’s needs, for the safest weight loss results.
3. Lowering your sugar intake could change more than just your body
Sugar causes metabolic issues, hormone problems and even diabetes. Eliminating sugar is not only a great way to lose weight but also a great way to change your eating habits and improve your energy levels & quality of life.
4. Burning fat is cheaper than gaining it
Overeating can not only be harmful, it can also be expensive. Keeping up an unhealthy eating habit can cost you more than you realise – especially if you eat out a lot. Eating smaller portion sizes of healthy food doesn’t have to be costly; stick to protein, veggies and good fats (avocado oil, coconut oil, etc.) and you can help your body, as well as your wallet.
5. Visualizing what you eat each day is a great way to find areas of improvement
Try a fitness app or even use the notepad feature on your phone to keep track of what you eat in a day. You could even take pictures of your meals each day to visualise the amount you are eating. Documenting each and every calorie is impossible and confusing, so don’t beat yourself up if you forget every now and then!
