Are you tired of doing your very best to lose fat with crash diets, rolling in and out of fads, going hard at the gym, watching the scales go up & down, trying, buying, trying again and failing? Forget the information overload in the 'diet industry' and let's keep it really simple.
When it comes to fat loss - it just boils down to ONE major thing, combined with a number of accessory factors. Primarily, you need to be in a CALORIE DEFICIT, so consuming less energy than expenditure
Once you know your magic numbers - the science is that straight forward. Good nutrition is about looking and feeling good as well as being healthy. So with that, nutrient intake should also be met within your diet plan, allowing you to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Key take home points on the science of nutrition: - Whether you lose weight or gain weight is dependent upon calories in vs calories out! No crash diet fads or supplements needed! - Optimal body composition can be achieved by consuming adequate protein, fats and carbs (your macros)
- You shouldn’t restrict macronutrients as they all serve a fundamental purpose (so NO carb cutting or low fat diets)
- No food will directly cause fat gain, nor are there any ‘superfoods’ that will result in fat loss - You simply can't out-train a bad diet. Exercise is a great accessory, but don't use it as a band-aid to perpetuate a poor relationship with food
- Rest, sleep, hydration, attitude & overall wellbeing are also all very important elements of your fat loss journey, whilst they might not be the main driver of results they are important building blocks for establishing good health & a better relationship with food. So don't forget to look after your body AND mind! .
