Top 3 Fat Loss Tips – #13
Fat Loss Tips – #13
Okay, so I appreciate that my weakness is probably that I have too much of a broad, macro-level perspective on fat loss. I have almost become dismissive of the “little things” that add up to success over time.
These things are incredibly important, especially if you’re a relative beginner, or haven’t made progress in a while. Whilst long-term strategic planning is key, you also need day to day success as well.
Here’s today’s 3 top fat loss tips:
This is an interesting way of saying: cut out processed shit. But it is coming from the perspective of your taste buds – they tend to go a bit wild when you start mixing all kinds of flavours (and sugar/salt) in there, and before you know it your normal hunger signals are so inaccurate and so far out of whack, you have no idea how much you should be eating.
This is another reason I HIGHLY RECOMMEND tracking calories if you don’t already have a sugar free (or very low sugar) diet – you just have no idea of how to intuitively eat. It’s not necessarily your fault, it’s just the impact that certain foods/ingredients have on people.
I like to go on and on about freedom and freedom of choice, but there some key assumptions I normally make here:
You already have an idea of:
A) Your calorie intake
B) Your meal timing and scheduling
C) You actually have a tiny bit of willpower and resilience under stress
If you have no plan and no structure, you’re obviously fucked. Now, assuming you have a good plan, a good idea of total calorie consumption and meal scheduling, then it becomes about freedom of choice.
Clearly, freedom of choice for most people makes them fat. BUT, if you give them a “healthy”, disciplined structure, you need to allow them to roam free within those parameters for success.
Now, normally I am not a fan of consuming ridiculous amounts of protein like they often suggest in the magazines. Particularly if you’re trying to gain muscle, and you’re struggling to eat enough food.
However, those who have somewhat of a food addiction will need more protein to act as an appetite suppressant. Now, does this mean you need to go full-blown Keto? No. Definitely not. It’s not sustainable.
But, you will need to throw in more veggies and more protein than others. As Jason states in the video I’ve linked, this means significantly more than the usual 0.8g per pound of bodyweight – just remember that it’s for appetite suppressing effects, not because it will make you any bigger or stronger than a lower protein intake.
There you go; 3 quick but incredibly useful fat loss tips for you. Try them and your fat loss results will improve – get to work.
