5 ways to improve your fat loss phase 

Fat loss is simple in theory. Just adhere to a deficit and you'll be fine...right? Well, not exactly. While it's a simple concept in theory, fat loss is much harder in practice. This is because we are not robots, and there are a wide range of things that can make adherence difficult.

We can often make simple mistakes that make our dieting phases harder than they need to be. To help you avoid these, here are 5 things you can do to ensure your fat loss phase is successful!


1.Don't aim for perfection. Ditch the all or nothing mindset, and accept that there will be 'off plan' days/meals. Simply focus on getting back on track as soon as possible after an unplanned meal or a missed session, and don't dwell on it or 'start again Monday'. Consistency over perfection bestie! 


2.Pay attention to your environment. Set yourself up for success by improving your environment. This might look like…

  • meal prepping your food
  • keeping some snacks out of the house
  • letting those around you know what your goals are and how they can support you


3.Don't go to extremes. We know that to lose fat, we need to adhere to a calorie deficit. However, you don't need to jump straight to very low calories, add lots of cardio, and train every day to see results. Start conservatively, and leave room to decrease your calories/increase your energy expenditure further down the track IF you need to.  


4.Be patient. Sustainable fat loss takes time, so it's important to be patient and trust the process. Yes, dieting aggressively and training all the time will lead to faster results initially, but you will likely be unable to sustain this, and will lose muscle as well as fat (and it will be miserable). Play the long game, and remember that healthy and maintainable results will take a little bit longer 


5.Prioritise sleep. Sleep has some major impacts on how we lose weight. Studies have even shown that those with poor sleep lose more muscle mass while in a deficit. Poor sleep also dysregulates our hunger hormones, which will increase hunger and cravings throughout the day. Aim for a solid 7-9 hours of sleep per night where possible.
