So, how do you lose body fat?

Here are 6 simple habits that will help you successfully embark on your fat loss journey.

First, DO MORE of these 4 things:

šŸŸ” Do more #1: Include 1-2 servings of protein-dense foods in 2-3 meals per day

Many people underestimate the power of protein. Protein helps you stay full longer, supports muscle maintenance, and even boosts calorie burn through digestion. 

Protein-dense foods examples:

  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Chicken
  • Lean beef
  • Tofu
  • Tempeh
  • Lentils & beans
  • Protein powders

šŸŸ” Do more #2: Include 1-2 servings of vegetables in 2-3 meals per day

Filling half your plate with veggies not only adds volume to your meals (making you feel fuller) but also provides essential vitamins and minerals šŸ„¬

Get creative with salads, stews, stir-fries, or even veggie-packed smoothies.

šŸŸ” Do more #3: Eat slowly until satisfied

Slowing down your eating pace gives your body time to register satiety, thus preventing overeating. 

Try setting down your utensils between bites šŸ“ chewing thoroughly, and really savoring your food.

You might be surprised at how satisfying meals can be when you're fully present.

šŸŸ” Do more #4: Exercise 3-5 times per week

Staying active is crucial for fat loss, and the best exercise is the one you enjoy and can stick to. 

Try a 30-60-minute walk in the park, a yoga session, a bike ride, or even a swim.

Any intensity level will do. The key is consistency and enjoyment.

2nd, DO LESS of these two things:

šŸ›‘ Do less #1: Eat fewer desserts and processed foods

While these foods might be tasty, they're often packed with sugars and unhealthy fats that can sabotage your fat loss efforts šŸ¦

Try to gradually reduce your intake and opt for natural, unprocessed foods instead šŸ“

šŸ›‘ Do less #2: Drink fewer caloric drinks

Sugary drinks like sodas, lattes, and even fruit juices can pack a surprising calorie punch šŸ§ƒ

Did you know?

can of Coca-Cola contains approximately 39 grams of sugar, which is equivalent to about 9.75 teaspoons of sugar!

Swap them for water, herbal teas, or flavored waters (recipes below) to keep your hydration up without the extra calories.

How to make your own flavored water? Easy!

Grab a bottle/craft, fill it with cold water, and add:

  • option #1: peppermint leaves
  • option #2: thin cucumber slices
  • option #3: few slices of lemon/lime
  • option #4: get creative

Remember, fat loss doesn't have to be a grueling journey of deprivation. With the right approach, you can shed fat while still enjoying food and life. 

Start implementing these steps, one at a time, and see the transformation happen. You've got this!
