Fat loss mistakes
Today, we have 5 more common fat loss mistakes –
Eating too often, even if you are not hungry –
Too many “experts” gave out the advice to eat small meals all day to prevent hunger and a drop in your metabolism .
Even though this works for some, it backfires for most. They end up overeating. Plus it does not fit into your lifestyle. You eat a bunch of small meals that do nothing for you.
This myth really picked up steam when bodybuilders starting giving this advice. As in people who have so much muscle they need a ton of calories just to maintain it. Plus they were trying to sell you on protein shakes to cover 3 of those 6 meals.
If it works for you, great. But do not feel like this is the only or best way.
Too many of Too few calories?
A calorie deficit is required for weight loss. You will have to burn more calories than you consume.
Most people are terrible at estimating how many calories are in a meal. Some people are consuming healthy foods but going overboard. Especially with things like nuts or good fats.
Decreasing your calories too much will backfire. It will lead to muscle loss and slowing down your metabolism. You will put the weight back on.
Not exercising Enough, or too much
If you don’t exercise while dieting, there is a better chance of losing muscle. This will slow down your metabolism.
You should not depend on exercise alone for fat loss. But it will help a lot if you have a regular routine.
Overexercising can cause problems.
We see too many people who start off too fast just to get injured. Or start on a plan they can not sustain. It can also negatively impact fat loss hormones.
No Strength Training –
Doing resistance training will improve fat loss. It will help you hold on to muscle and increase your metabolic rate.
Ever see someone lose a bunch of weight, just to put it back on? These people usually lose muscle because they decide to crash diet along with cardio-only exercise plans.
We have an efficient workout that burns calories with cardio and strength training at the same time.
Overestimating Calories burned through exercise – We talked about this a few weeks ago. You can check is out here =>
