6 Simple habits to include for better fat loss results
To get the most out of your results, it’s important to stay consistent. Use these tips below as a guide to help you along your fat-loss journey.
If you’re keeping track of your macro nutrients or not, it’s important to get protein at every meal. As a general rule of thumb try aiming for 20 grams of protein at every meal and snack. However, remember that everyone has different nutrient needs. These protein needs vary based on your age, height, weight, goals and more!

I use the ‘MyFitnessPal’ app, however, there are so many food tracking apps out there! Find one that works best for you. Awareness is important when trying to lose weight. It’s easier to track your progress and know which foods to avoid and which to incorporate when it’s right there in front of you.
Think of food as fuel. Food quality is just as important as food quantity. Eat whole, nutritious foods that fuel your body and help increase your energy throughout the day.
Lift to hold onto and increase your muscle mass. If you’re just doing cardio and not incorporating weights, chances are your muscle mass is diminishing and once you drop that fat you won’t have any muscle tone to show off. One of the most important things you can do when trying to lose fat is incorporating weights into your routine.
Drinking an eight ounce glass of water right before a meal can actually reduce your appetite and help you to not overeat. Listen to your body and eat slowly. The recommended daily intake for water to aid in weight loss is 64 ounces or 2 liters.
Turn off the cell phone and TV an hour before bed. This prepares your body for a night of rest. A consistent sleep pattern can aid in fat loss a great amount. When your body is well rested your energy levels increase, you’re happier overall, and it will help you choose healthier foods throughout the day. Insufficient sleep leads to cravings which we are more likely to give into when cranky and irritable.
