14 Eating Tips to Improve Fat Loss



Filed under Truth About Abs


How has your fat loss been going? What have you been eating this week? You know, it always comes back to what you eat and how much. It doesn’t help to burn 600 calories during a great workout and then eat 6 Snickers Bars! So, check on your fat loss “training table” and see if you need improvements.

Use food to fuel your healthy lifestyle and reach your weight loss/fat loss goals. Eating 6 Snickers Bars (or something similar) after a workout just “cancels out” what you are trying to accomplish.

Here are 14 Tips to Improve Your Fat Loss:


1. Eat breakfast. A good, healthy breakfast gets your metabolism kicked off for the day. Also, eat small meals every 3-4 hours to keep up your energy and to keep your metabolism humming along.

2. Plan and pack your meals for the day. This way, you are more likely to stay with your nutrition plan.

3. Carbs are not your enemy! They are your body’s preferred source of energy during an intense workout. Just eat the right kind—like fruits, veggies and whole grains.

4. Eat protein with every meal. Protein helps you feel fuller for a longer period of time and repairs your muscles after a tough workout.

5. Research has proven that you will have a better chance of succeeding with your meal plan and fat loss if you keep a food journal.

By logging your actual food choices, you are holding yourself accountable throughout the day. You will also be forced to plan your meals better. It will also help protect you from binge eating and emotional eating if you write down why you eat what you eat. Do a food journal until you have a good idea of what and when you need to eat.

6. Find an accountability partner like a friend, spouse or personal trainer. Don’t try to do your exercise program alone!

7. Find out your basal metabolic rate–BMR (amount of calories you would burn if you did nothing all day). You will use this rate, your activity level and goals to set the amount of calories you need each day to maintain a caloric deficit (burn more calories than you consume). You also need your BMR so you don’t eat too little and encourage your body to store fat!

8. Drink water and unsweetened drinks (like tea) most of the time.

9. Forget the quick weight loss gimmicks (they lead to yo-yo dieting and even more weight gain)! There are no quick solutions to permanent fat loss and weight loss. Change your eating habits.

10. Eat foods as close to their natural state as possible. So, a baked potato is more healthy than french fries. And, we could add foods like whole grains, nuts, brown rice, fish, lean meats, etc.

11. Try not to eat foods stored in a box or bag. These foods are usually loaded with trans fats.

12. Don’t assume that LOW-FAT means LOW-CAL—Read the Label.

13. Try to stay on your normal diet during the holidays as much as possible! Don’t make Thanksgiving through January 1 one long eating binge!

14. Stick to your meal plan at least 90% of the time and you should be just fine (provided you are sticking to your exercise plan).

Eat enough to build muscle and burn fat for a healthy body!
