Fat Loss Tips – #24
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:
Pick Your Snacks Wisely
There is no link for this, but it’s important and I thought I should mention it. Most people when they try to lose weight either don’t have enough structure (so they have no chance progressing) or they don’t allow any treats whatsoever and go insane as a result.
Or they screw both up.
Remember that the goal of snacks (within the context of a structured weekly meal plan) is to prevent cravings from rising to excess. But at the same time, you don’t want to send yourself into a frenzied feeding session. Balance is key. Some sweetness, but not things like ice cream and cake. This will take a little trial and error and common sense.
This article has a good overall message that I agree with – your fitness journey gets easier once you start gaining some consistent momentum. Same with most pursuits actually. Momentum is a very real thing that seems to build upon itself and accumulate.
His main advice is to focus on what you want (i.e. your goals) and I agree that this is the first step, but you also need to build the correct positive habits and act on them every day for at least a couple of weeks. This is guaranteed positive momentum and builds the correct (i.e. sustainable) dieting foundations.
I don’t recommend sprinting as the injury risk is too high. But you can do HIIT on just about any machine in the gym with lower risk. Start off with just one session per week, or if you’re already doing cardio, you could just substitute one of your LISS sessions for HIIT.
They tend to be more motivating, exciting and time efficient.
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.
