Fat Loss Tips – #17

 

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:

 

Drink More Coffee

 

I don’t recommend this to most people as a long-term strategy, as I don’t think it’s best for your long-term health to be drinking gallons of coffee per day.

 

However, I think that if you’ve been struggling to lose weight for a long time, and you need to lose weight for health purposes, drinking more coffee will only do good things for you. You can always back off later when you’ve lost the weight.

 

Coffee is such a useful appetite suppressant – you’re seriously missing out on the benefits if you’re someone who has been struggling for a long time.

 

Funnily enough, it also helps with IF and the myth of breakfast – i.e you won’t drop dead by lunchtime if you skip breakfast. Coffee is great, and I highly encourage you to check out the article above. Again, if you want to get rid of it when you’re leaner, do that, it’s not difficult.

 

Stop Mental Masturbating And Take Some Bloody Action!

 

Nobody else is going to sort your health out. Only you can. Knowledge is potential power, yes, but the keyword is potential. You can gain all the information you want from various awesome resources, but if you never take any action towards your long-term (and short-term, crucially) fitness goals, you ain’t goin’ nowhere.

 

If you’re not in a calorie deficit, you’re not losing fat. If you’re not progressive overloading in the gym, you’re not gaining muscle. By the way, unless you’re a beginner, I don’t recommend doing both of these two fundamental rules at the same time – pick one. But once you’ve picked one, you must stick to it, otherwise you’re going nowhere.

 

Only you have your best interests at heart – take action.

 

What Gets Measured Gets Done

 

The obvious benefit of this is that you have more information, and you know how to act to get moving in the right direction towards your goals. Now, the not so obvious part of this is to do with attention. Huh?

 

Simply the act of tracking certain things means you are paying attention to them. I believe attention is very powerful and you should be very careful where you choose to pay attention (may do a post on this), but if you are good at this and pay attention to the right areas, you will be more aware of everything in that area.

 

For example, the simple act of tracking calories makes you more careful of what you put in your mouth. This is yet another reason why I encourage tracking calories. Don’t care if your irrational mind doesn’t want to. Your irrational mind doesn’t want to improve – it wants to stay fat due to multiple biological impulses. Need I say any more?

 

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.
