3 Pillars of Fat Loss.
“I am the type of person that wants to be strong, lean, and athletic looking without sacrificing my social life.”
Fat loss is a $72 billion dollar industry in the US alone.
You likely don’t need to transform your entire life, but losing 10 pounds would make you feel awesome.
With that much money being spent on helping people lose weight, the process shouldn’t be so overwhelming.
Here’s my take on fat loss and my journey.
I opened Hustle One Fitness probably at the peak of my competitive CrossFit career.
I went from working out 6 days a week for 1-2 hours, to now working out when I could!
And even when I decided to workout, motivation was low- it was always easier to put the workout on the backburner.
Months of this, and guess what? I put on a lot of unwanted body fat in the first 6 months.
I felt awful all the time.
Energy was down, sleep was terrible, and my mood switched over to not enjoying what I had once enjoyed most.
I knew I had to make a change, so here’s what I did to improve my body composition.
I broke down fat loss into 3 things that I could focus on and control the most.
The 3 Pillars of Fat Loss:
- Total Calories: Calories are king and a good place to start is taking your bodyweight and multiplying it by 12. That is your daily, caloric intake to achieve fat loss.
- Protein: Losing weight is only cool if you’re burning fat and keeping muscle. Aim for 0.7-1.0 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.
- Water: You must drink to lose the unwanted body fat. Not drinking alcohol, but drinking water. Aim to drink a cup of water every hour throughout the day.
Combined with effective and efficient strength training, fat loss is simple, sustainable, and ENJOYABLE.
Eating plain chicken breasts and rice cakes is not the answer.
Strong, lean, and athletic is attainable, enjoyable, and you are going to feel like a total savage on the beach this summer.
