What matters when losing fat?
Here is your Fat Loss Pyramid!
1. The base of the pyramid has to be a caloric deficit.
Think 500 calories a day below your basic metabolic rate. That alone is 30 % of your success.
2. Your macros.
For fat loss, you can cut either fats or carbs. Never cut protein 25%
3. Weight training.
Why? In a deficit, the body itches to drop muscle, not fat. The reason is simply : Muscles cost energy to sustain, fat does not. You must give the body a reason to hang on to the muscle aka use it. 25%
Hold on to your seat: cardio is not a great fat loss tool. But it does matter for overall health. Think 90 minutes a week any cardio will do. Worth15%
5. Meal frequency, Supplements, Superfoods
These things matter little if at all. 5%
