The fundamentals of fat loss
Without going into too much detail The fundamentals of fat loss keeping it simple is eat less and move more!
Again without going into too much detail and we know each person is specific to the other but Basically your body needs to be in a calorie deficit to lose weight/fat
Now you’ve got 2 options decrease calorie intake or increase activity which one do you choose ? there is no right or wrong answer it all depends on the person and what fits in better with your life and schedule
Some would prefer to take food away from their diet but once you get to a certain amount of calories you don’t really want to go any lower right?
Then on the other hand Some would prefer to increase activity and keep their food intake this doesn’t necessarily have to be doing more cardio on the treadmill or a piece of kit you don’t enjoy
If you hate the treadmill don’t use it, use the bike/ropes/boxing/sled the list goes on, Do something you enjoy there is plenty of kit in the gym to get your heart rate up and burn calories
Maybe even just add an extra 5000 steps onto your daily step target
Or Walk to work instead of taking the car
Get your bike fixed that’s been in the shed collecting dust
Make phone calls on the move instead of sitting down
If you’re from a bodybuilding background you may enjoy sticking to one piece of cardio and doing low intensity training, but if your plan and goals are different everything doesn’t have to be set in stone the goal is to burn calories and move more than you usually would
However you do that is up to you don’t be a slave to your exercise regime ENJOY IT
Morale of the story there are plenty of ways to burn calories and you should enjoy your training
