EAT & DRINK FEWER CALORIES EVERY DAY FOR FAT LOSS. (This is a repost from last year). The message is still important. Don’t overthink fat-loss. Do realize it’s mostly about consuming too many calories. There are other factors but this point is critical. The majority of Americans are overweight or obese. This now includes children. Most adults admit they want to lose body fat. If this is you, listen carefully. The simplest way to lose body fat is to consume FEWER calories each day than you do now. Don’t go too low. DO NOT STARVE YOURSELF. Too few calories may be as bad as too many. Be reasonable. How much less? I’d say between 250-500 calories less each day. If you don’t want to count calories, then don’t. Just eat less at each meal by around a 1/4 (or half). If you drink calories, that would be the easiest place to trim back. Of course, the long term goal is to eat and drink BETTER food (less processed, more plants) but for now just try eating (AND DRINKING) less calories each day. You should probably consult with a medical professional if you have any serious issues or concerns. Yes, exercise matters… but much less than you might think. Eventually, a great goal is 1-3 weekly Strength Training sessions and ample Daily Walking. Both are important but will never be more important than NOT OVER-CONSUMING calories on a regular basis. It makes very little sense to over-consume calories then try to burn it off with exercise. The smart thing to do is not consume the excess calories in the first place. Most Americans are considered “sedentary”, even if they exercise an hour each day. Sedentary people do lot need a lot calories. End of story. #healthyfatloss #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltraining #blueskystrongbox
