In order for fat loss to happen, you must be in a calorie deficit. It really is that simple.
Find out your daily energy needs (there's good calculators available online) and reduce energy consumed daily from your food intake and increase the energy you burn. That will put you in a negative energy balance meaning you'll start to burn fat to fuel your body.
You don't need any silly diets, certainly no ridiculous supplements, detoxes, herbal teas or celeb endorsed products ( @khloekardashian 🙄 honestly wtf were you thinking) that are useless and a waste of money.
In an ideal world, you'd track your calories using a fitness app. It's a great tool for consistency but also making you more aware of the calories contained in the food you eat.
Failing to do that, it's obviously possible to lose fat without tracking calories.
Focus on getting better quality, nutrient dense foods in you and lean protein sources. Not only will they provide your body with essential nutrition, they'll also fill you up for a lot less calories consumed.
Also, focus on increasing your energy you burn. Walk more, sex more 😜, take the stairs etc
At the end of the day, these things really add up and help with fat loss.
As a chef and @macnutrition certified nutritionist, I design my recipes to be as low calorie and nutrient dense as possible so they not only nourish your body, but save you loads of calories too which can be spent on other things..... Like cheesecake and snickers (ok, I enjoyed myslef this week eating a little "junk") 😂
I hope this post is helpful. Be less Horatio, stop looking for the next quick fat loss trick or program and focus on gathering your information from credible sources and from people that are looking out for you, not their own pockets.
