????FAT LOSS MYTHS????

Read below to find out what really makes YOU lose fat! ????????

When it comes to the topic of fat loss which is very different to weight loss, we will find so much information out there on what you ‘should’ be doing, and we all know that most of that is a whole lot of bullsh*t. ????

Fat loss is actually a fairly simple process. You are only able to lose fat, when you manage to put your body in a caloric deficit, meaning you exert/use more energy than you consume. Actually simple maths right? ????

Fasted Cardio may burn more calories in the session than normal cardio but taken as day as a whole normal cardio burns the same amount of calories, if you hate it you will not be able to sustain it. Cardio is simply a TOOL to help put you in a larger deficit, but not essential for fat loss.

 

Meal Timing also does not matter. What matters is how much calories and macronutrients you consume throughout the day in total. Intermittent Fasting for example, is an effective fat loss aid which only allows you to eat in a certain window. So we see it is really not necessary.

Cutting out or lowering carb intake will definitely lower calories, but in no way is it a factor that contributes to fat loss. –

Hopefully the whole concept of fat loss can be easier to understand now.

Caloric deficit WILL make you lose fat. There is no need to try out other fat loss scams.????????????

WHY YOUR METABOLISM IS SLOW

Read below to for more details!

Do you have a slow metabolism?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Listen, so do many people⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There are a few possibilities here so please consider all of them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1) Metabolic adaptations- You have been dieting for a long time or dieting drastically or just under-eating which has resulted in your metabolism slowing down. That is why “diets” should not be chronic. Include things such as diet Breaks or change up your diet by including regular intervals higher calorie days.

2) NEAT- You may just not be very active. If you have a desk job or have low spontaneous activity like fidgeting, then you are burning fewer calories. Fix this by having a step goal and staying on your feet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

3) You are eating more than you think- Sorry. Most people just eat more than they think. That could be oil you cook with, that could be inaccurate portioning, it could be sauces and condiments you add, etc. Try tracking everything you eat on a food scale and MyFitnessPal for 1 week. That will teach you about what and how much you actually are eating.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It is technically possible to have a slow metabolism. But most people’s genetic variation is actually quite minor. There are other factors, like the ones mentioned above, which actually explain your “slow metabolism”.
