Fat Loss Tips – #3
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.
Without further ado, here are my top 3 fat loss tips:
Continue To Lift Heavy Weights
The vast, vast majority of your fat loss is going to come from your nutrition, not training. This means making changes to your carb intake, eating more vegetables etc.
Now, although daily activity is still important as it boosts your TDEE and therefore the number of calories you can get away with eating, I still don’t classify that as training.
The goal of your training is to maintain your muscle. Maintain. Thsi requires proper lifting, adequate volume and workload, not reps of 20+. Continue lifting heavy weights.
Throw Out All Junk Food
And don’t buy anymore in your next weekly shop. I appreciate this is an emotionally difficult one, but it’s an action you MUST perform nevertheless. If you want to be frustrated with shitty fat loss results for the rest of your life, keep doing what you’re doing.
Otherwise, something needs to change. This thing is: Eliminating sugar and junk food. “Fail To Prepare, Prepare To Fail”
Honestly, having junk food and sweets and shit sat around in your cupboards is begging to shoot yourself in your own foot further down the line. It’s begging to screw your diet progression up. Guys, let’s get serious. The only purpose they serve is to make you fat, and you know it. Grow some balls and stop buying crappy food.
Progress is difficult. Nobody said it was going to be easy. But if you want to make genuine, life-changing progress, these foods are going to have to disappear.
Your waistline will thank you for them.
As will your wife. And kids. And future grandkids.
This all comes down to having a plan for when you return from the gym, but it’s crucial that you get adequate protein in you.
When muscle gain is the goal, carbs are the focus, especially post-workout. However, when fat loss is the primary goal, you need to ensure you are getting enough protein, as it can sometimes be difficult to do so. Especially when you start to get really lean.
Any protein shakes will do. You want to be shooting for around 30g of protein (or more), depending upon how many meals you eat. For IF’ers, it’s going to be more than 30g.
There you have it. 3 more great tips to improve your fat loss results. Follow them and see.
