Whether you’re looking to improve your overall health or simply slim down for summer, burning off excess fat can be quite challenging.⠀

There is so much more to losing weight than spending countless hours at the gym 🏃🏻‍♀️ First thing is first – You need to be in a calorie deficit in order top lose weight. You need -to burn more calories / energy than you consume. There is no short cut around that. ⠀
Every diet out there has one thing in common. CALORIE DEFICIT… ⠀
Ditch ❌ the fad diets! These quick detoxes and juice cleanses arent sustainable. Your body is smart and designed to withstand famine. That means it will compensate for restriction by driving up your hunger levels. “If you go on a regimented food plan that does not take into consideration your individual calorie needs or food likes or dislikes, it cannot last forever,” It will become unsustainable and that’s were the dieting yo-yo effect comes in. You lose 5kg and gain it back… Which than causes you to stress – which may lead to elevated cortisol levels that stimulate your appetite, with the end result being weight gain or difficulty losing weight.⠀

Heres what you need to do to lose weight. ✅ Get on top of your nutrition. Be in a calorie deficit.⠀
Eat real, whole foods and less processed foods. ✅ Reduce stress. This is so important as I explained what happens when your stress levels elevate. ✅ Strength train 🏋🏻‍♀️ / exercise 3 – 5 x per week. ⠀
Strength training is so important for weight loss because muscle helps you burn more calories. The more muscle you have the more calories you are going to burn. The best thing is it doesn’t end after you leave the gym. Your body is still torching calories for the next 24 to 48 hours as it works to repair stressed muscle tissues. That’s known as the after burn effect. ✅ Exercising promotes the release of feel-good chemicals in the brain like endorphins and serotonin. So when you feel good you are more than likely to make better food choices that will help you stay on track.⠀
