4 Ways to Hit Your Fat Loss Targets

Here are four weight-loss strategies that will help you get moving in the right direction.

1. Play The Numbers Game

If you are confused as to where to start, start with this strategy. It is pretty simple and to the point. Start with calculating 0.75 grams-1g of protein per pound of body weight, and set your caloric number at a point where you are losing at least 1 lb a week. Consistent journaling of your food, in the beginning, is important, as is setting your caloric number. Online food apps like MyFitnessPal work well here because all of the numbers are laid out for you.

2. Plan and Prep

When it comes to weight loss strategies for nutrition, most people fail before they even get started by not setting themselves up for success. We all have a limited reserve of willpower. Especially at the end of the day after dealing with crying babies (or bosses), traffic, or whatever else life has to throw at you. You are much more likely at these points of high stress to fall off the deep end nutritionally.

3. Wage the One Meal Battle

For many, going cold turkey and switching everything all up at once can be pretty difficult. With this eating strategy, you change one meal at a time. You can start with a meal that gives you the most problems: breakfast, lunch, or dinner. At first, focusing on changing one meal a day can seem insignificant, but I want you to look at it in a different light.

4. Mindful Eating

Instead of focusing on macronutrient numbers, this weight loss strategy focuses mainly on food quality and your relationship with food. The focus is shifted from weight to health, but you still must track what you eat. Not doing so is like paying your bills without knowing what’s in your bank account. It just doesn’t work if you are looking for positive results with your health.

Stay Simple and Consistent

It doesn’t need to be a crazy uphill battle if you find weight loss strategies that work for you. The strategy that works best can also change based on where you are in your journey. No matter what you choose, make sure you find something that is simple and that you can be consistent with.
