I’m starting this with a bit of rant. I’m sick and tired of reading garbage about diets and how to lose fat or get fit.
Most writers have zero background in food, nutrition, or fitness yet feel entitled to write about the subjects with authority and advise others on what to do.
It’s a total joke, folks. Please be careful what you read, listen to, and believe.
Instead, do the research and educate yourself on the natural and healthy options that are logically good for your body.
In the article I read, it was clear the author did a few google searches and then tried to back up her nonsense by saying, “science confirms.”
Then she says you must eat a “healthy balanced diet” (what’s that?) of meat, fish, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and so on — 80% of the time.
For the remaining 20%, you can eat whatever you want, i.e., snacks, fast foods, processed foods, junk food, and presumably candy!
You must only stay under a specific calorie count per day to stay caloric deficient. You can do this by weighing your food and making online tool calculations.
Whereas caloric deficiency is advantageous to achieve weight or fat loss, it’s not going to be particularly helpful for you if you’re a carbohydrate sugar burner.
Going with the above-suggested method is a sure-fire way to feel hungry constantly, deprived, stressed, and pissed off!
And it will lead to you quitting after a week or two and going back to how you ate before.
In other words, terrible uneducated advice.
I’d love to call out the writer, but I won’t; instead, I’ll focus on what works, what doesn’t, and why.
There are 4 Elements to Successful Fat Loss.
- Eating the Right Food
- The Right Type of Fitness
- Frequent Movement
- Intermittent Fasting
What Food Can I Eat to Be Lean and Fit?
And this is where the logic part comes into play.
If you’re consuming a lot of “Whole Foods” that contain grains and gluten, which are carbs and are converted into glucose in your bloodstream, you’re not going to win!
Therefore, the number one rule, folks, is staying away from carbs and sugar as much as you possibly can.
Focus on eating natural, real, unprocessed food that nature provides, which are:
Meat, seafood, fish, vegetables, eggs, salad, and avocodos, as well as healthy oils.
If anyone wants to tell me that eating nature’s food (sorry, that includes meat, as we are born hunters and gatherers), I’ll call it what it is — Bullshit.
What Type of Fitness Training?
Hitting the gym and lifting weights in excess daily is not a good way to go. By doing so, you’re stressing your heart and releasing cortisol into your bloodstream — your stress hormone, and this can cause heart disease.
Further, this type of exercise mostly pushes you into the anaerobic zone where you’ll burn zero fat!
Train this way:
- Walking or slow jogging, remaining aerobic
- Strength train for 30 minutes 2 to 3 times per week
- Sprint in a pool, track or field 1 to 2 times per week
By adopting this training method, your fat loss will accelerate tremendously, in combination with the right food.
The majority of people don’t move anywhere near enough throughout their day.
Instead, they sit around all and drive the car around the block to fetch some groceries, take escalators instead of stairs, and elevators to go up one floor!
That’s what we call the sedentary life!
Make a conscious effort to move several times a day, be that walking, short runs, a couple of 5-minute micro workouts banging out a few push-ups, squats, and planks.
That extra movement works wonders.
IF means you have a 6-hour eating window, the rest of the time, you only drink water.
And that means you cut out your breakfast feast and move it to lunchtime, where you can eat a good breakfast or lunch, and dinner around 7 pm or 8 pm.
What do you achieve by utilizing this easy-to-follow method? A Caloric deficiency by eating fewer meals in a day.
In addition, when in a fasted state, after waking up in the morning, your body takes its fuel from your internal fat source, thus burning more fat instead of ingested food and calories.
Then, add some exercise and extra movement while in a fasted state, and you’ll burn even more fat, naturally.
All of this results in what? The elimination of the fat belly syndrome and all other fatty areas you may have.
It takes some time and dedication, but if you stick to it, it works every time.
Please look around you — most folks are overweight, sporting bellies, fat legs, arms, and even faces.
Wherever I walk, I spot endless kids, teens, young adults, and older people with way too much fat. None of this is healthy for their hearts and other organs.
Then, as I walk past, I see what they’re eating. It’s always the same; pasta, bread, pizzas, fries, sandwiches, smoothies, and other junk food, and oh, ice cream.
There’s a trendy ice cream shop where I live in Bali. Whenever I drive by, the line is enormous, and almost everyone in that line is way overweight. I hope that tells you something.
If you’re serious about losing your belly fat or any other fat deposits, please give my suggestions a try for a month. You’ll see it works.
And please be careful what you read and believe. This article is no-nonsense, and I’m the living proof of it.
