Achieving Weight Loss
At the most simple level, weight gain occurs when we consume more energy (calories) through food and drink than we use up.
Therefore, to lose fat we must burn more calories than we consume.
This is called a “Caloric Deficit” and forces your body to burn your own stored body fat for energy instead, which is a requirement for fat loss.
A combination of both eating and drinking less energy, and being active, will help to achieve weight loss so that you reach a healthy and maintainable weight.
- Try to do weight training 3 or more times a week.
- Try to do cardio 2 or more times a week for 40 - 60 minutes at a time. You can fast walk on an incline, run, step, row, swim - get active!
