Building Up to Fat Loss – [3 Practical Weight Loss Tips]

You know the saying “Rome wasn’t built in a day”?

I think that quote is very relevant as it pertains to you and your health-related new years goals. Often we take on too much, attempting an “all or nothing” approach that often ends in failure.

Diving head first into any one-size-fits-all diet may not be the best approach, as it doesn’t teach you the habits needed for long-term success. For the typical overweight or sedentary person, it’s been a lifetime in the making. That’s why I suggest adopting an individualized plan that caters to your unique needs and goals.

Keep in mind that any effective weight loss or exercise plan involves just that; planning, structure, progression, and individual modifications as needed to continue to facilitate progress.

Getting Started:

1) Did you know that for many people, simply increasing meal frequency (eating more often) has been shown to facilitate weight-loss? We’re led to believe that excessive exercise and caloric deficit is the key to weight loss, and while possibly effective in the short-term, may promote serious health issues and weight gain when used long-term.

Practical Tip: Try and eat 4-5 smaller meals throughout the day rather than skimping on breakfast and lunch and having a massive dinner plus dessert.

2) Simply getting enough protein at every meal can help better balance blood sugar, improve detoxification, and improve body composition. Good sources of protein are eggs, chicken, beef, fish (and other wild game sources) and some higher protein dairy products like Greek yogurt or cottage cheese.

Practical Tip: Try including a palm size serving(men should have two) of protein at every meal including breakfast

3) Just get started!!! Don’t worry about the perfect plan, because it doesn’t exist. Just put one foot in front of the next and start moving, every day. For those that are inactive and overweight, it’s taken years for you to get to that point, so don’t expcect things to change overnight.

Practical Tip: Start with a 15-20 minute walk in the morning or after dinner. Be consistent. When you’re ready, walk longer, farther or even start jogging. Just keep progressing little by little.

If you’re interested in weight loss, improved energy, better sleep, or just want to feel better, let us help you establish an appropriate exercise and nutritional program that will give you the tools necessary to be successful long-term. Think about it this way, if you lose just ½ of a pound each week, after 1 year, you will have lost 25 pounds. Fantastic life-changing results, no radical diets necessary.
