Priorities - Weight training for FAT LOSS!

When losing body fat it’s important you retain as much muscle mass as possible, this is so you:

A. Do not lose any muscle you have built and

B. You do not end up looking the same but smaller. Instead you'll create a firmer, more defined physique. (Lean and toned as some would call it)

Weight training will contribute to this as well as building a better metabolism ( helping you to keep your gains for life 😉) and of course, you'll burn way more calories!!!

Reasons you gained weight overnight!

 

1. You ate out last night.  

2. You had a stressful/ bad night's sleep. 

3. You ate something different last night.  

4. You ate or drank something with lots of artificial flavouring or seasoning.  

5. You are dehydrated.  

6. Hormones. (For the Females) 

7. You ate loads of carbohydrates.  

8. You ate significantly more calories than normal.  

9. Your digestion isn’t optimal.  

10. You are using different scales at a different time of the day (this actually does happen!)  

Your weight will fluctuate... and it’s important to remember that you are not necessarily gaining fat, but just weight (usually from water/food).  

If your goal is to drop weight on the scales, make sure to make a weekly average. This will take into account the random heavy and lower weigh ins.  

Also make sure to take progress pictures as the scales are not always going to show your complete fat loss progress.

STOP YOUR WEEKEND FROM BEING A HUGE FAIL!!!!

 This weekend rather than call it a write off because it may not be perfect due to sociable commitments, how about you just try a little harder to stay on track.

Be more mindful... maybe park you car a little further away for extra activity, get a green shake in to over compensate the lack of veggies you may have and have a protein shake before bed if you didn’t get enough protein in that day!

LOW CARB MEAL ALTERNATIVES!

  What are you having for dinner or lunch today?? 🍛 🍝

 

Here’s two easy ways to keep your meal the same but change up your carb sources to lower your carb/calorie intake if this is a goal of yours.

It’s a great way if you would rather have a few extra carbs/calories  before bed or as a snack so you can save them for that AND it also means you can eat with everyone else and stay on track  😉

NOTE: if you then go and add lots of extra calorific sauces, side dishes or protein sources you may defeat the lower calories purpose of these alternatives.

Calling all Nut Butter Lovers!!!!

Are you obsessed with Nut Butter or know some who is? Do you describe your portion as ‘a tea spoon’ of nut butter?? This picture shows how important it is to be accountable for your daily food intake if you have a physique goal... 'a tea spoon' of peanut butter isn't always good enough.
