Hey guys, Stefan from Fitness Room here, hope you guys have had an amazing day so far! We’re going to be talking about the secrets to fat loss today, these are things you should be doing in order to maximise the results you see from your diets and reach your goals.
This is the heart of all of your fat loss, it doesn’t seem like much of a secret that you need to be eating less, but most people don’t do this at a steady pace! The common practice is to start slashing calories in order to lose fat faster, but your body will quickly adapt to this and start fighting back at you. This also makes dieting extremely difficult and unsustainable, meaning it’s unlikely you’ll be able to stay consistent.
Nutrient Dense Food
Your calories should be made up of foods that give you energy, help rebuild muscle from training and provide you with all the vitamins and minerals to keep your body functioning at an optimal level. Foods such as oats, broccoli, flax and chia seeds, blueberries and beans are all food choices you should be including.
Water is a natural appetite suppressant, so drinking water is a must throughout the day in order to keep you from snacking. It also makes you feel healthier in general and flushes out waste products
Guys, we’ve also got a bonus secret for you. As you gradually lower calories, your need for nutrient rich food will increase in order to keep your hormones stable and retain your muscle mass. Alcohol is also a diuretic, dehydrating you and even making you feel hungry. Alcohol is absolutely useless as it is just empty calories that don’t provide you with any protein, fibre, vitamins or minerals. Most of the time it just causes you to spill over your normal daily caloric intake and kill your progress.
