How to lose body fat and why being strict with your meal plan your coach has given you is so important.
Every person has a maintenance level of calories where if they eat this amount of calories they will maintain their current weight.
To lose body fat they must create a calorie deficit from this amount of calories.
There are 2 ways to do this:
1. Increase their activity levels.
2. Eat less calories.
But there are some pit falls to this, so controlling how big a calorie deficit you create is really important! Many people often make the mistake of creating too big of a calorie deficit during the week and binge at the weekend. Then they end up consuming their maintenance calories or more and end up staying the same weight or increasing weight.
Thats why it is really important to stick to your plan consistently over time and you will get the results you deserve and have worked so hard for!!
That does not mean you can’t have a drink at the weekend or go out for dinner, life is all about balance If you plan with your coach at the start or the week and let them know what you plan on doing at the weekend they can tailor your nutrition plan and training accordingly to keep you in a calorie deficit and be guilt free enjoying your weekend 😀
