Fat Loss Tips – #6


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.


Today I have found some fantastic new resources for you:


Drink Black Coffee Pre-Workout


Coffee is great. I do think that if you’re on a diet, you’re missing out by not drinking coffee in the mornings. Why mornings? Well, sleep is pretty critical and you don’t want to be risking a good night’s sleep. Drink coffee in the morning however and you can have the best of both worlds.


Specifically, a strong appetite suppressant and a good nights sleep every night. Seeing as diet adherence underpins just about everything you do, we need to be regulating our appetite as best possible for our goals.


Utilise Diet Breaks/Maintenance Periods


Holy shit this is a great article. It fits in very nicely with what I’ve recently found- I will do a blog post on this but I’ll briefly summarise it for now:


When you manage to maintain your fat loss results, by not trying to do anything too extreme and taking your damn time about this stuff, your physiology and psychology both adapt to your new bodyweight.


It’s really important to note that this takes time.


In my case it took about 18 months to fully adapt. Now I struggle to eat enough food to be in a calorie surplus. Being the greedy git I am (naturally), you never would have thought those words would come out of my mouth prior to this 18 month period.


You need to utilise periods of maintenance calories, interspersed with deficits. Accept that this is a journey, it will take time, and that yo-yo dieting is a very common problem that can easily be avoided.


The main goal of this blog is to help people to stop yo-yo-ing; I just see it as such an unnecessary source of pain that can easily be cured.


Pick “Satisfying” Foods


Another great one from T Nation here. It details the importance of choosing¬† wise food choices for you personally, as we all have certain “trigger” foods, and we all have foods that satiate us. There is some variance on a person by person basis.


It also notes how raising your fat consumption to 50-70% plus (cough*keto*cough) may not be the best idea. It’s a great article and I highly recommend you check it out.


There you go; 3 quick but incredibly useful tip for you. Try them and your fat loss results will improve – get to work.
