There is a HIGH chance that this might just end up being my most popular BLOG post eveeerrrr!!
Because everyone wants to know the fucking secret.
The fastest and easiest way to drop the three stone that you took five long years achieving!
The BEST results with the LEAST amount of time and effort.
Listen, if I knew the secret then I'd be a really rich woman and living in Palm Springs right now.
But now that I have your attention, AND because I'm really grateful you stopped by and took time out of your busy day to ready the GYM G5 BLOG - let's cover my TOP 6 tips to successful Fat Loss.
#1 : Successful 'dieters' or LEAN machines tend to eat very similar foods MOST of the time. The reason being is because it makes life simpler, its easier to be consistent when you know your meals and what works for you and your lifestyle. And the simpler you can make you diet and exercise habits, the more lily you are to stick to them in the long term. And don't forget that Success comes from consistency and sustainable habits.
#2 : Successful 'dieters' or LEAN machines will eat PROTEIN with the majority of their meals. Why? Because protein makes you feel full & satisfies hunger, and its essential to build AND maintain lean muscle mass, which is essential for Fat Loss. Plus as a bonus the more muscle the less fat, the hotter you look, in clothes & naked. Period.
#3 : Successful 'dieters' or LEAN machines will eat a shit ton of green veggies, veggies & fruits with the majority of their meals. Because its no secret that eating real, whole foods makes you feel great, keeps your gut & digestion tip top and makes you look badass. And although good health is the number one reason to eat more veggies & fruit, like protein you get a lot of bang for your buck on your plate, in comparison to calorie dense & low nutrient junk.
#4 : Successful 'dieters' or LEAN machines won't drink their calories from liquids or alcohol. Probably because they like their food (Yup Im a self confessed GRUBBER), because they value their health so they keep alcohol to special occasions and because fizzy juice contain little or no nutrient value. So don't waste your money.
#5 : Successful 'dieters' or LEAN machines will never miss a healthy meal twice. What I mean is cheat DAYS or WEEKENDS don't exist and just mean you end up on a mega binge. Instead they tend to eat intuitvely and if they go for a pizza or a meal out with friends, then they get back on track the next morning and adjust their calorie intake for the rest of the day/week. Likewise if I chose to enjoy pancakes or french toast for brunch, then dinner is back on track with my regular routine. Don't be too fucking good to yourself people. Chose consistency & only treat yourself to LESS HEALTHY FOOD on occasion. The majority of your meals are real, whole, nutrient dense food.
#6 : Successful 'dieters' or LEAN machines will be active in some way every single day. They will be conscious of their NEAT (if you don't know what it is, read the earlier BLOG post!), move in a non gym way as much as possible, take stairs not elevators, walk fast not slow and aim to train at intensity inc lifting weights at least 5 times a week. Move more, don't think you can look your best if you are a lazy assed, couch potato. Move, Often.
Take home message. And listen I'm making NO APOLOGIES if that isn't what you wanted to hear. At the end of the day, the science behind losing fat is pretty straight forward. Structure your diet & exercise in a way that creates a consistent calorie deficit and BOOM - you'll start to lose the chub. In my experience most people know 'how' to lose weight and be healthier, but actually putting it into action is where most people screw up. They prefer to waste YEARS and money (so much water money) looking for the next best detox, diet, gym, smoothie, or magic machine that melts fat. When if they just accept it isn't about how FAST you can lose it, or going to EXTREME measures, it's about having patience, and creating good habits that last forever. Never focus on short term results at the expense of long term, health & lifestyle. There are lots of tips I can help you with, loads of great habits to make your journey to lean a bit less painful, and make fat loss simpler. Like I said, I guarantee the simple approach is the one you will stick to. So the next time you find yourself considering a 60 day no carb, gluten free apple cider vinegar detox.
