The thing with losing fat
The thing with losing fat and why it can be difficult for some people
Long story cut short, I think one of the reasons why some people find it difficult to lose fat is due to the consistency and willingness to make the change in their lifestyle to be more physically active and eating better.
It's easy to feel sorry about oneself and self talking into working out very hard for a brief period of time before giving up when not seeing the results and progression they want in that short time frame.
The key factors to losing fat are simple. But for it to be put into action is another story. To lose fat, you need to burn more calories than you consume - Which boils down to getting more physically active and eating lesser calories. Physical activities can be in any form. On top of that, addressing the important and core aspects of fitness and not neglecting too much of any. For example, playing a sport, and going to the gym to complete your physical workout with aspects that have not been covered sufficiently (Playing badminton, and going to the gym to balance out your workout with holistic strength training). For diet, cutting back on calories whilst going for mostly healthy and nutritious food. Eating a diet with 100% junk food for a miserable portion can still cause one to lose weight if there's a calorie deficit.
So with these key factors in place, you should lose fat right? So what's happening? Why am I still not losing fat? One of the main things these individual overlook is that they have failed to become consistent and honest enough. If you honestly address all these key factors, you will lose fat, naturally and in a pretty holistic manner. I can guarantee that - provided you are a regular healthy individual with no health ailments. If not - Maybe you need to be more honest with yourself and keep things more consistent.
Yours in fitness,
