Yes yes yes you know this already. However, there are a few things you may not know about nutrition that can make all the difference on your fat loss journey.
In the beginning of January I launched a course called Long Term Fat Loss for Busy People that dealt with this exact problem and now 500+ people are enrolled! One of the 57 lectures shows you nutrition tips you can use for maximal fat loss and today I wanted to share them with you.
These nutrition tips will give you a great start, but this is only the beginning. To learn more, check out the course I created just for you.
Nutrition Tips for Maximal Fat Loss
- Track your habits. To have the most success you’ll need to keep track of your habits. You’ll choose one at a time, but keep track of whether you are actually following through with it or not. It’s easy to say that your nutrition has been “Pretty good” but what does that actually mean? How good have you really been?
- Think damage control. Out to eat or in a sticky situation? Damage control will help. Enjoy, but by not over-indulging as much, you’ll help yourself in the long term.
- Don’t drink your calories. This is an easy way to consume less calories. By only drinking water you’ll help yourself out a great deal. Even drinking 100 calories extra per week day can eventually add up to around a pound in a month (3,500 calories is roughly a pound).
- Eat whole, minimally processed foods as much as possible. This will help you consume more nutrient dense foods and eliminate much of the added sugar that is in many foods.
- Plan your week. Take a few minutes to look at what events you have going on during the week and plan your nutrition accordingly. If you know that Thursday will be a late night at work, then pack additional snacks to ensure you won’t be hungry. If you are going out to eat on Friday, then try to be more strict before then.
- Prepare food ahead of time. Take 1-2 days to prepare food ahead of time – bake fish, grill chicken, make a big stir-fry – by preparing food ahead of time you’ll ensure that you have plenty of food for the week. I tend to use Sunday to bake a bunch of chicken breasts of fish. Choose whatever day will work best for you and get to cooking!
- Eat a wide variety healthy foods. If you are eating a small variety of foods you may be missing out on certain nutrients. To manage this, just try to eat a wide variety of healthy foods. For example, try different types of vegetables you may not have had before.
- Break the rules sometimes. This is one of the most important success tips for nutrition. You don’t have to be perfect 100% of the time. In fact, you should plan on breaking the rules 10-20% of the time. For example, if you are eating 4 meals per day that is 28 meals per week, so around 3-5 of these meals can be whatever you want. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should overeat during these meals and completely stuff yourself, but you should be able to enjoy some of the foods you love.
- Match behaviors w/ goals. Ultimately, if you want to achieve success in anything your behaviors have to match your goals – nutrition is no exception. If you want to lose body fat then everything you do should be geared towards that – fitness, nutrition, sleep and so on.
- Progress. If you eat healthy 30% of the time and in two weeks you’re up to 50% of the time this is progress and you should be happy about this. Yes, you’re trying to get to the 80-90% of the time eating healthy, but wherever you are at the most important thing is to focus on improving.
