Does this scenario sound familiar?
You commit to a healthy lifestyle. You get all organised, are super positive and raring to go. But before you know it, you’ve reverted to your old habits – the diet slips and the gym attendance falls behind.
The good news?
There is a better way. Swap this all or nothing mentality for my top 8 tips for fat loss. Trust me they work!
If you follow 5-7 of these tips you’ll be well on your way to hitting your target goal. Follow ’em all and your results will be off the scale!
Here goes …
1. Avoid Faddy Diets
Faddy diets are a pet peeve of mine.
They don’t work, aren’t sustainable, and mess up your health and hormones.
Fat loss shouldn’t just be about getting into smaller jeans or looking good in a bikini, it’s about looking and feeling healthier for life.
It may sound cliche, but there are no shortcuts to losing weight – a balanced diet and regular exercise will achieve far more than a week on the latest craze.
2. Smaller Portions
At mealtimes, try putting your food on a smaller plate. Studies show that we’ll finish off the plate in front of us whatever it’s size – and we’ll feel full afterwards.
3. Mix Up Exercise
If you find exercise a chore to stick to try mixing it up. The key is choosing a form of exercise you enjoy such as a run outdoors, swimming, bodyweight exercises, a dance class and so on. The choices are endless!
Whatever you choose, just make sure it cranks up your heart rate so you burn calories in real time and also up to 24 hours afterwards.
4. Go Lean
Choose leaner cuts of meat and replace creamy sauces with vegetable alternatives. It’ll still taste great whilst absorbing less fat.
5. Buddy Up
Why not get a friend to train and get healthy with you? You can both motivate and help each other. Also, my B-FIT SMALL GROUP PT COURSE is perfect for extra support from a lovely group of like-minded ladies.
6. Crank Up Your Music
I’m a big believer in the power of music to help you push harder whilst exercising. So load up your playlist with your fav upbeat tracks.
7. Take Baby Steps
Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither is achieving long lasting changes in your health and fitness. So be patient. Losing weight doesn’t mean cutting out life’s pleasures altogether and being extreme.
Simple swaps make a huge difference and add up over time. For example, instead of ice cream, have a coyo coconut yoghurt. You’ll barely notice the difference. And when food tastes good, it doesn’t even feel like you’re dieting.
8. Detox & Purge Your Pantry
Clear out your cupboards of all junk food and replace with healthier choices. Controlling your environment as best you can is key to achieving your goals.
