All About Fat Loss

What is Fat Loss?

We store most of our fat under the skin, around the organs, and in the muscles. We need fat to give our bodies energy and to help us absorb important nutrients. However, too much of it is harmful to the body. Losing fat helps our bodies run more smoothly.

What You Should Know. Not everyone can eat a lot and not gain weight. We are all unique in how our bodies work. It depends on what we eat and how our bodies use the food’s energy. If you try to eat very little, your body conserves as much fat as possible. But once you go back to eating normal, you will gain weight quickly and lose muscle. Eating too much and not exercising will also make you gain weight. Thus, it is very important to eat healthy, balanced meals, and exercise.

Recommendations. To maintain a healthy body:

  • Exercise at least 5 days/week
  • Eat whole/unprocessed foods regularly
  • Be aware when you are hungry and full
  • Sleep 7-9 hours per night (very important!)
  • Do not go on extreme diets
  • Stay consistent with your habits

Above all, if you want to feel and look great, nutrition is most important. Without good nutrition, you will not get the results you want!
