Most of us, at one time or another, have a goal to lose some body fat. It might just be that we want to feel better in our clothes, perform better in our sport or simply improve our overall health.
To lose body fat/weight, we must consume less energy (food/drink) than we are burning. In turn, it forces our body to begin using the stored up unwanted body fat as fuel.
Building a deficit slowly, in a safe and manageable way, will allow our body to adapt in a controlled manner. By exercising an average of 3 times per week at an intensity that your current health / fitness will allow for, will ultimately start the process of weight/fat loss.
Here are some tips to help move the needle, so-to-speak.
Eating a well-balanced healthy diet will provide you with enough calories and nourishment to get the most out of what you put into your body. Choosing low-calorie, high-volume foods will also improve your digestive system, thus increasing the energy needed to digest (more) food.
Drinking plenty of water will not only keep you well-hydrated, but it also helps to carry all those healthy nutrients around your body. Keeps your joints moving easily and again, increase the energy your body needs to process the extra hydration.
Eating protein at every mealtime will ensure your body has what it needs to recover and rebuild after each training session/class, so you can continue to put in your best effort every time you come to CrossFit Anam.
Making small changes to your daily habits, overtime, will build to a significant improvement to your end-goal.
