Diet seems to be a huge frustration when it comes fat loss. After all, working out is the fun part – and it’s only for a few hours a week. Eating right is a 24 hour per day, 7 day per week focus – and let’s be honest: it can be tough!
At the end of the day, the equation is simple: eat less, move more, and you lose weight. But with that being said, chosing the right foods, combining your foods the right way, and eating the right amount of times per day is very important as well and can have a big impact in getting you to your goals.
Here’s an article I recently published on another site that should help you in chosing the best fat loss diet for you – all sound fat loss plans will have these three things in place:
The Three Essential Components of A Fat Loss Plan
by Forest Vance, MS, CPT, RKC
Fat loss plans are a dime a dozen these days…some are good, and some are bad. So, how to figure out what’s right for you and your goals? Here are three essential components to a sound fat loss plan:
1. A Diet Change For The Long Run
Truly, diet must be the biggest focus of your plan – and it has to be a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. In other words, no grapefruit or cottage cheese diets are going to help you – you gotta change your eating habits and change them for good. That’s the first ticket to getting to your goals and a good, solid weight loss plan.
2. Get into a daily calorie deficit
Burn more calories than you take in, plain and simple. Any successful fat loss plan – whether it’s low carb, high fat, high protein, whatever – will have this in place. Move more, eat less, and you’ll be well on your way to your goals.
3. ‘The Work Out’ Factor
Technically, you don’t have to exercise to lose weight… but especially if your focus is on losing fat, you gotta do some exercise – in particular, you have to include some resistance training. Research has shown over and over that resistance training in particular has a bigger impact on actually changing your body composition – losing inches, fitting into that summer bikini better – than does cardio. This being said, including cardio is important, too – a comprehensive ‘road map’ to your goals is really the ideal strategy.
Those three factors – getting to a daily calorie deficit, a focus on diet, and a solid and individualized exercise plan – are things you can’t get around if fat loss is your goal. Take this advice and take action – and good luck!
Now, based on some informal surveying, a big frustration my clients seem to be having is knowing exactly what to eat. Theory is great, but having an exact plan is even better. Just a simple, easy to follow diet that you know if followed to a ‘T’ will get you where you want to go.
And also based on the great feedback I’ve been getting on the meal plan included with the Ultimate Fitness Resource Toolkit, I’ve put together a special package … it’s the Easiest, Fastest Fat Loss Meal Plan Ever … and it spells out exactly what you need to do to reach your fat loss goals.
You’ll also get a grocery list and a basic fat loss workout – you’ll have all the tools you need to lose fat as fast as humanly possible!
Now, this isn’t a quick fix type of program; it’s based around sound principles of good eating and working out. It’s a diet with a focus on lean meat, lot of vegetables, nuts and seeds, and very limited processed carbs and sugar. But it’s very effective – and I know it because these are principles that have helped hundreds of my training clients lose fat and build muscle.
