Losing body fat is not the easiest of propositions; just ask anyone trying to lose that last ten pounds. It often seems as if the more persistent a person is, the harder this stubborn body fat is to lose. Whether your goal is to get into top shape for a bodybuilding contest or to look good for the beach, fat loss is arguably the biggest incentive to train.
Reducing your body fat is an admirable goal and an eminently achievable one, but it takes a fair bit of commitment. There isn’t a quick and simple trick to it: you’ve got to eat a healthy diet, get moving, sleep well and look after your mental health too.
When trying to reduce your body fat, you don’t have to focus directly on it. Making healthy lifestyle changes in general will help you lower your body fat.
Your diet should adapt to how active you are each day, rather than eating the same amount no matter what you’re doing.
Breaking sedentary behavior is the best thing you can do. Even if you can just do a 20-minute walk in the evening before your dinner each night, that would be a positive thing.
Calories that sneak in through beverages are usually forgotten. This is especially true when we are talking about alcoholic or sugary drinks, including fruit juices and soda. These drinks can be found anywhere, tempting you at gas stations, schools, movie theaters, airports, your workplace, even at the gym. The average American drinks 400 calories on a daily basis!
Our bodies are most efficient when drinking water. You will definitely feel much more satisfied and “full” if you eat your calories rather than drink them. “Don’t Drink Your Calories” is an easy and quick mantra to help you make good nutrition choices.
