4 Big Fat Loss Mistakes

We sometimes get over zealous when starting a new diet, or weight loss regime and make some critical mistakes. Chances are you’re like most people, you will make mistakes and possibly never reach your fat loss goal.

It doesn’t have to be so hard. We tend to complicate things that are really very simple. The best way to fix this is to learn what those mistakes are and get on track from the “get go.” Better results are imminent.

Here are 4 common mistakes that can be avoided if you’ll take the time to read these facts.

  1. Starvation Diets
  2. Failing To Plan Ahead
  3. Overdoing Cardio Training
  4. Over-complicating The Process

Starvation dieting Never works! If 1400 calories is good, 1100 must be better, right? Not so fast. Your body needs the proper amount of fuel to burn fat properly. We talk about “eating to lose weight” on this blog and have a body mass calculator available.  Strangely enough, if you cut your calories back too far it makes further fat loss feel impossible because your body will just cling onto what fat it does have.

The 3 Week Diet

It is hard to have time to cook a proper meal to coordinate with your fat loss plan if you forget to plan ahead. It does take some pre-planning, but your health and personal goals are certainly worth the effort! We sometimes get too busy with work, or family to think about what our needs are, and to be honest- if you don’t take care of yourself first you have no one to blame but yourself.

If you want to see results, however, you need to plan ahead. The trick is using a weight loss program that doesn’t call for overly complex meals that mean you spend hours each day in the kitchen.

Overdoing Cardio Training is a big mistake, and many of us spend way to much time on the cardio machines. While some smart cardio training (such as sprint training) can be beneficial for fat loss, you really don’t need to chain  yourself to the treadmill, bike, or the elliptical. In fact, doing so can do more harm than good.

Instead, what you need is a basic weight training program that focuses on key lifts that make you stronger.

You would be better off choosing a program that utilizes “over the top” calorie burning exercises that will firm and tighten your body while helping you melt fat quickly.

Overcomplicating The Process is the last big mistake that some of us make. When we find a diet plan that has impossible amounts of rules and regulations that we must follow it can get ridiculous trying to stick with it. That definitely doesn’t work.

With a few smart guidelines that you can easily implement into your life, you can be on track to seeing superior results.

Fat loss isn’t rocket science. It all boils down to fueling your body with the right food choices and amount of energy to encourage the release of energy from body fat cells.

The 3 Week Diet plan will explain how to do this with simplicity!

So keep these mistakes in mind. If you see yourself making any of them, make a few changes and get yourself on track to seeing better results in the future.
