Uh-oh, Five Fat Loss Mistakes
By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS
Straight to it. Here are five of the biggest fat loss mess-ups that I see men and women doing everyday, fix these, and you’ll lose fat.
Not having back up.
Trying to lose fat without social support is the wrong way to go about this. Ideally, you’d have your doctor, an RD, a trainer, your workout partner, your spouse, your workmates, and your friends all behind you.
Research shows that you’ll benefit most from a health professional (i.e. a trainer) and a workout partner that is also successful.
Get those two people on your team first, and then work on the rest of the group.
Not using a structured program.
If you ever go into the gym and wonder what you are going to do first, you’re already wasting your time – even before you choose.
Get a plan, know what you have to do, stick to it, and see it through. That way, no wasted time wandering around the gym deciding where to start.
Not changing your workout after 4 weeks.
That’s the longest you should go on one program.
If it’s been 6-months, give your head a shake. If it hasn’t worked yet, why do you think it’s magically going to start now.
Change it up frequently. You’ll get more results and you’ll have more fun.
Not realizing your results will come from nutrition more than they will from training.
You want to lose fat?
You have to eat right for fat loss. You can’t train like an animal and then eat junk and expect to lose fat.
No program is that good. None.
Diet beats training every time, like scissors beats paper. Eat whole, natural foods in 6 smaller meals each day.
Get lots of fiber, lots of protein, lots of vegetables. Eat healthy fats, avoid trans fats. Drink lots of water and tea.
So simple, so effective. Eat for energy, not for gluttony.
Not knowing when to quit.
I get emails everyday from readers asking if they can add even more cardio and more lifting to their current workout plans.
After all, if some is good, more training must be better?
Listen, you have to draw the line somewhere. You can’t keep adding more and more exercise.
First, there is diminishing returns from each additional set you do, and from extra cardio.
Second, your body can breakdown fast from too much work, particularly when you are dieting.
Over training and low calories go together like oil and water. Neither of these combos will make your engine run optimally.
And finally, focus on quality over quantity.
The “volume approach to fat loss” from the 1980’s (characterized by lots of cardio and lots of carbs) didn’t work.
For good reason. Stick to high quality nutrition, and high-quality training.
The only thing that matters is results.
Not muscle soreness, not feeling exhausted after each workout, and not feeling deprived of food.
Quality work and quality food for a better body.
