What is sustainable fat loss?

Sustainable fat loss involves two key factors: being in a calorie deficit and maintaining hormonal balance.

To create a calorie deficit, you need to burn more calories than you consume.

If you're gaining weight, it's likely because you're eating more than you're burning.

On the other hand, if you're losing weight, you're eating less than you're burning.

The goal for sustainable fat loss is to aim for a loss of 1-2 pounds (or 0.5-1 kilogram) per week. This allows you to make small, sustainable changes rather than trying to overhaul your entire diet and exercise routine all at once, which can be overwhelming and ultimately lead to burnout.

To create a calorie deficit, try looking for higher calorie foods in your diet that you can cut back on or try increasing your daily movement.

Pay attention to how your body is responding and adjust accordingly. Remember, any diet can work (such as keto, intermittent fasting, or paleo) as long as it allows you to create a calorie deficit and maintain hormonal balance.

Ultimately, the key to successful fat loss is finding a sustainable approach that works for you.

Ask yourself if you can see yourself following this plan for the next 5 years.

If the answer is no, it's not the right plan for you and it's unlikely that you'll be able to maintain your weight loss long-term.

If the answer is yes and you're seeing results, you've found your perfect formula.

Don't be afraid to experiment and try different approaches until you find what works best for you.

Remember, sustainability is key - focus on making small, sustainable changes rather than trying to lose weight quickly.
