How can I lose body fat? This is a question I am asked frequently, so I thought I’d share a little more on this topic!
So, let’s talk about what body fat is. Fat is stored in the body when the number of calories consumed is higher than the number of calories burned. It doesn’t matter if it’s protein calories or fat calories or carbohydrate calories - if more energy is entering the body than leaving, the body stores extra energy as body fat. And we need body fat! If you want to improve your body composition, know that loosing body fat and being able to sustain that new body fat percent takes time and consistency - but it's possible!
Incorporating healthy habits into your every day is the key to a healthy lifestyle. Start slow, reach out for support, and give yourself time during the process. Check out my tips to lose body fat in an effective way.
