This is one of the fundamental points that people need to understand in order to get the most from their weight loss journey.
The principle of weight loss is being in a calorie deficit, this means that you consume less calories in a day than you burn in a day. Methods of weight loss are all the other things: the diets you go on, keto, paleo, low carb, low fat etc. The methods can be adapted to suit the person but the principle (being in a calorie deficit) has to remain for you to succeed.
It is of course, not as simple as just consuming less calories. Or is it? If weight loss is your goal, and you are not worried about other factors, then yes indeed you can eat whatever you like as long as you don’t go over the calories you need to be in a deficit.
If, however, you are worried about your health and worry about your fat intake and your vitamin and mineral intake, then consider what foods you consume to make up your calories (we can go into this in later posts). So why is this important? Too many people focus on the method thinking that this method must work, and when it doesn’t move onto the next most popular detox coffee or fad diet.
In summary, we don’t diet to lose weight, we don’t exercise to lose weight. We go into a calorie deficit to lose weight, and the methods that we use to achieve this can vary depending on our own preferences and education. So please, before you go diving into a new fad diet or fat loss coffee and tea, educate yourself, look to see if the people telling you about it know their stuff or are they just trying to make a quick buck. #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weights #diet #knowledgeispower #dontbefooled #fitness #fit #switchgym #onlinecoach #liftweights
