Weight Loss vs Fat Loss
Crash Diets vs. Correct Nutrition
Brian Roberts, your Central Mass Fat Loss Coach here …
People talk about how they want to lose weight, but the truth is … what they should really want to do is LOSE FAT.
Anyone can lose weight. All you have to do is stop eating (please don’t do that – that is what most of those unhealthy crash diets have you do). The point is that yes, you will lose weight, but the weight you lose will be muscle, fat, bone, water, and every other part of your body in an unhealthy fashion. This is reason why it comes back…
The real goal for your “loss” journey should be to preserve as much muscle as possible, or possibly even gain some muscle mass, all while losing as much fat as possible. That way, you’re going to have a much improved body composition. Central Mass Fat loss will accomplish this and we will share how.
What I tell my clients to do is STOP focusing on weight loss ( that is hard to do when your losing close to a pound a day, depending on commitment and personal health starting point) because that just leads to sabotaging any results you might have. And the scale is not the best and only judge of a healthier body. Instead, I give an individualized nutrition plan where the focus is on eating foods that are good for the body, and teaching them to change their eating and lifestyle routine. Once they have been on the program for a specific amount of time, I tell them to focus on how their clothes fit and feel, their strength, endurance, energy, and confidence levels. If these progress markers are improving over our short time and they’re feeling better about themselves, then that’s all the more reason to continue enthusiastically forward to reach our health and fat loss goals.
Another key focus is on building muscle (and yes, it means that you might stay at the same weight for a short period of time, but that can actually be a sign that you are gaining muscle). Our clients typically lose 10 to 15 pounds in the first 21 days, than our bodies will start their adjustments. Our clients lose a very high percentage of fat during our 43 day program. After our first 43 days, we start on maintenance and we are having a really good time incorporating more activity, more foods and feeling really great.
If you go into your journey with the right perspective and you optimize for fat loss and muscle preservation, your goal will be a lot easier to accomplish.
In the end, your Fat loss experience will be more than you thought it would be… but the better picture is that you’ll be leaner, happier, stronger, more energized, eating better foods and more of it, and in a far better healthier frame of mind.
