There are ten vital components when targeting fat loss is your goal! Read on to discover 10 tips to get you get ripped:
Limit your meal size!
Even though the foods on your plate may be healthy, they still have calories that may exceed what your body needs for ultimate leanness on your journey to fat loss.
Get all the R n R that your body need!
Remember that rest and recovery is the time that your muscle is developing. Workouts break the muscle down (which is completely necessary) but the true magic happens all on its own between workouts!
Keep throwing surprises on your dinner plate.
Our bodies are natural adapters and need a variety of fruits veggies and protein sources to keep fat loss progress at its best. Add all the colors of the rainbow to your produce choices. Try new things and thrive!
Eat at consistent intervals.
Keep those meals coming every 2-4 hours to turn up your body’s natural fat burning furnace! Your body will quickly learn that meals are coming in at regular intervals and respond by burning off the current meal quicker in order to make room for the next meals, which is optimal for fat loss.
Eat anyway, even if you are not hungry.
The perfect meal to fuel your system when you do not feel hungry is a scoop of protein blended up with liquefied spinach. You won’t taste the spinach but your body will surely taste the results. Watch your physique thank you for the fat loss progress!
Work out smarter!
Skip the hours of cardio and focus on turning the interval intensity. You will be leaner but have more time to spare. Use this time for meal prep and watch your results increase!
Watch out for foods with calories even if they are healthy!
In our home we eat tons of avocados, olive, coconut and grape seed oil. As vital as these foods are, remember they still contain a lot of calories, so limit them accordingly to insure that you are able to metabolize it all.
Our family time is often spent once or twice a week outside in the sunshine next to our barbeque. We grill large portions of lean meat so that it will be readily available throughout the week when it is needed. If the healthy foods are available you will be more likely to eat them! This will keep you more consistent on your nutrition plan.
Well yes, “believe” is the most overused word in the fitness dictionary but it could not be better advice. Remember that what you’re doing WILL work. Believe that what you are going is the best gift that you can ever give yourself. Tell yourself every day that it is worth it. Fat loss will help to decrease the amount of stress there is on your body to process all of it, PLUS you will feel great about yourself!
Live the lifestyle!
You are not on a diet, you are not on a quick fix. This is life, dear fitness friends! Focus on what is long term. View your activity level and your nutrition practices as the way you will live your life. Fat loss is a process, and then when you meet your goals you have to MAINTAIN it! This is Sparta! (Yes, it was absolutely necessary for me to say that.)
This will take time, this is a process, but if you start today, you will be one day closer to your fat loss goals tomorrow! Now grab your xiphos and join our fitness cavalry!
