𝐅𝐚𝐭 𝐋𝐨𝐬𝐬 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐋𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐬 𝐈𝐒𝐍'𝐓:
✖️ being strict for 30 days followed by a back to real life attitude
✖️ deprivation-based diets you can barely adhere to
✖️ eliminating an entire nutrient category (e.g. NO carbs)
✖️ detox teas/skinny drinks and supplements
✖️ anything you can't stick with for a lifetime
These tactics can help you lose fat BUT your results won't stick around very long. Because if you can't adhere to the behaviors that produced the results, you won't keep the results the behaviors produced either.
🙅🏼♀️ I'm not about that.
Because unless you are extremely advanced and can apply these aggressive, deprivation-based Fat Loss strategies as short-term tools in your periodized fat loss strategy with the help of an educated and experienced coach, deprivation does more detriment than benefit. Not to mention, you lose all hope in the fact that you can reach your fat loss goal without hating your life in the process.
𝐅𝐚𝐭 𝐋𝐨𝐬𝐬 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐋𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐬 𝐈𝐒:
➕ committing to healthy habits you feel confident sustaining
➕ slow progress over time that you can maintain
➕ ensuring a well-balanced nutrient-dense diet that leaves you feeling nourished (not punished)
➕ something you feel good about continuing for years - decades even
These tactics help you lose fat AND keep your results. Because when you can adhere to the behaviors that produced the results, you get to keep the results that those behaviors produced (and continue to produce!)
Recently, my husband, Patrick, and I set out to shed some fat for summer. Are we confident we can sustain our progress? You bet. Because we made room for our favorite things and avoided feelings of deprivation, restriction and wanting to ring each others necks because we 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘭𝘥𝘯'𝘵 eat X, Y, or Z. That's not how we want to live our lives.
