Why Fat Loss Becomes Impossible and How To Change?
There are so many reason for not being able to lose fat but I have found some common themes
1. Starvation dieting or dieting in general.
I am not saying that a person should not eat healthy and then at a SLIGHT caloric restricion. A person should do this but food is to build lean muscle, to become stronger and to have more energy.
2. Lack of Trust or Faith
If a person does not believe they succeed, they will be correct. The truth is a person must believe they will reach every goal including fitness.
3. Justification of exercise
There have been times where I have done this. I say I can eat whatever I want because I exercise. The good news is I only do this occassionally. I do believe that exercise is just as important for long term fat loss but people must make lifestyle changes.
4. Patience is a virtue
I am impatient but when it comes to becoming lean and tone it takes time. It could take years depending on your goals. Sorry but it is the truth! It could also take a few months it totally depends on so many variables.
5. Program movers
I think a person should stick to a resistance based program long term. I believe in simplicity with fitness and fat loss. Get stronger, more conditioned, more functional and eat supportively. When it comes to exercise less can be more IF DONE PROPERLY.
6. Work ethic
Sticking with high reps low weight or staying at the same speed on the treadmill is not a good idea to become toned
7. Long duration moderate cardio
You might lose weight but it is not worth the muscle loss and metabolism diminishing returns. For me it is always about high intensity interval training.
8. Comparing to others
I have learned something about competition over my years as an athlete and as an adult. You only compete against your best self!
9. Never give up
We can see this health clubs across America. The two weeks and done syndrome.
10. No accountability
This one is often overlooked. If you have support and accountability results really do sky rocket.
Basically do the oppossite of these 10 and you will see amazing results!
