When it comes to fat loss nutrition, there are only a few things you need to think about.
Don’t be put off by confusing advice, expensive meal replacement schemes or slimming clubs that keep you dependent on them. You need to learn how to control your own diet, gradually lose body fat and keep it off for good! No more rebound weight gain. EVER!

1st – to lose fat, gradually DECREASE total calories.
Start by eating less. Here are some easy strategies to make it happen.
Next time you have a meal, try one of these options to reduce your overall calories by about 20%.
Use slightly smaller plates, leave a little food on your plate, stop eating when you feel satisfied rather than tummy busting full, stick with one serving – no second helpings. The idea is to get used to having a little less food each meal.
Don’t think that low fat or low sugar options are a good idea – they are highly processed and full of substitutes that will sap your energy and usually taste dreadful. Better to have foods you love, just a little less of them.

#2 STOP Cheating At The WRONG Times

#2 STOP Cheating At The WRONG Times

Even though eating all your favourite cheat foods can make losing belly fat way more fun than traditional “crash dieting”, they can only work their “magic” if you eat them at the right times. Otherwise you’re completely defeating the purpose and you’ll make zero progress.

So first of all, never cheat just because you’re bored with bland diet foods. Newsflash: You’re trying to burn fat, look younger, and feel great. You’re not the quality control department for the Food Network…If you want results, you have to be willing to make some sacrifices a few days a week so you can “prime” your metabolic pump to accelerate your results during the cheat.

And if you’re stressed out and think you need an emotional food “high” you’ll kill your fat-loss efforts in less than a week. It’s called “life” and we’re all going to deal with stress while we live it – so get used to it. Food can be just like a drug, so don’t let yourself get addicted or emotionally attached to it. In other words, BE CAREFUL, and time your cheat foods the right way.

And if you lack discipline – you’re not alone. But when it comes to eating cheat foods it’s either the pain of discipline OR the pain of regret. In other words, cheating is a reward – not an escape.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to eat your favorite foods, GUILT FREE, when aggressively trying to burn belly fat. Just plan out when your cheat days are, plan ahead and go after your reward!
