The Secret to Fat Loss

The “secret” to burning fat is that there is no secret. It takes dedication, determination and above all discipline. Of course, this is common knowledge. The main shift in thinking that needs to take place is going from the idea of simply eating less to that of eating more and burning more.

The body has a complex set of metabolic processes that help to regulate internal conditions or homeostasis. This includes things like body temperature, heart rate and body weight / composition. In order to reestablish your “comfort level” you have to work with the body rather than using “shock tactics”.

To lose weight and keep it off you must reestablish your set point. This involves creating a slight calorie deficit. This is most easily attained by focusing on the quality of the foods you eat, making sure to include plenty of lean protein and non-starchy carbohydrates like vegetables. There is also room for naturally sweet “indulgences” like fruit and honey, for example. The real problem with most of the foods we eat is that they’re not really foods at all, but  man-made garbage posing as food.

Increasing your activity levels will also help trick the body into releasing stored fat for energy rather than holding onto it for fear that starvation is imminent. Think of exercise (especially weight training) as the “spark” that sets the fat burning reaction in motion.

I’m really big on the idea of sustainable results. If you make progress only to slip back into your old habits, what’s the point? In order to truly be as healthy as possible you must make healthy habits a part of your lifestyle.

One thought on “The Secret to Fat Loss

  1. Spot on Jason. It’s a reasonably simple concept that does require effort. The first question a person must ask themself is “am I worth the effort and the opportunities they reveal?” If the answer is “YES,” unhealthy foods may continue to be enjoyed, however, they will NEVER be viewed as “rewards” again. A person of self worth doesn’t view destructive habits, behaviors and actions as “rewards.” They incorporate “unhealthy things” into their lives in a manner that does NOT interfere with LONG TERM HEALTH success.They turn to POSITIVE actions, activities and people when rewards are earned. This new mindset reduces hormonal cravings causing aberrant behavior. CONTROL, once again, becomes attainable.
