Okay ladies, let’s look at something different to standard weight loss.

The concept of being fat or having fat implies being overweight but that isn’t always true.

You might have a healthy BMI (Body Mass Index) and you might be in the right weight range for your height and bone structure, but you might also have areas of fat you want to lose.

Losing fat usually means losing weight but not if that is not your overall goal.

If you want to lose fat without changing the overall composition of your body, this is what you need to know:2

1. Understand What It is

Understand What It is

The first thing to get straight is to understand exactly what body fat is and what its purpose is.

Though the word fat has become a negative word, body fat is actually a tissue in our bodies that we do need, just not as excess of it.

Our bodies need fat for cushioning and insulation;

the recommended amount is around 25% to 28%.2

2. Calorie Deficit

Calorie Deficit

Cutting calories is the first basic step towards getting rid of excess body fat, as in simple terms, the less fat that you are putting into your body, the more your body is going to have to turn to consuming the reserves that you already have stored within yourself.

3. Avoid β€˜Low Fat’

Avoid β€˜Low Fat’

Like I said, our bodies do actually need fats in moderation.

In order to stick to a diet that is going to satisfy and full you up enough to actually stick to it, it is recommended that you include about 30% β€˜good fats’ in your routine, things like peanut butter, avocado etc.

4. Fewer Carbs

Fewer Carbs

Carbs are really important and give us the energy that we need to make it through a day.2

Carbs give the body something called glycogen for energy, and if there is a lack of glycogen within your body, it will turn to your fat reserves to get some energy instead.

It is important to reduce your carb intake to stimulate use of fat reserves.2
