A woman on a diet has many suitors. The weight loss world is full of companies and self-appointed experts competing for her attention, often spreading misinformation and making impossible promises.
It’s so predictable. They just want to get into her….pocket.
If you’re a woman struggling with weight loss, there’s a good chance you have heard some unreliable information, causing you to make a mistake or two. Just a bit of misinformation can make weight loss seem like a code to crack.
It doesn’t need to be as complicated as it seems. By learning these mistakes, you can quickly unlock your potential and get back to getting results.
Let’s look at four need-to-know weight loss mistakes.
If 1400 calories is good, 1000 must be better, right? Wrong. Your body needs fuel to burn fat properly. As strange as it may sound, if you cut your calories back too far, your body will actually begin conserving its store of fat.
Think about wild animals in winter. When they eat less and less each day, the body gets “worried” and prepares itself for continued scarcity of food. Your body is the same. Too little food, and it will preserve its energy stores (i.e. fat) as long as possible. You may experience initial success, but it will quickly plateau.
You want to use a moderate calorie deficit, like the one detailed in the SHRED in SIX Challenge. This plan ensures your metabolism stays highly active for optimised fat loss.
Overdoing Cardio Training
If there’s one mistake that most women make in common, it’s hours spent on cardio machines. While some smart cardio training (such as sprint training) can be beneficial for fat loss, there’s no need to chain yourself to the treadmill, bike, or elliptical. In fact, doing so can do more harm than good.
Alternatively, what you need is an easy-to-follow weight training program that focuses on key lifts that make you stronger.
Check out the SHRED in SIX workout program if you need assistance in this area. This program will streamline the top calorie burning exercises that firm and tone your body while helping you drop fat quickly.
Overcomplicating The Process
Finally, the last big mistake that many women fall prey to is overcomplicated programs. Diet plans with a million rules and regulations only lead to confusion, demotivation, and eventually giving up.
Simplicity is best. A few smart, easy-to-follow guidelines are most effective for superior results.
Fat loss isn’t rocket science. It boils down to fueling your body with the right food choices and amount of energy. That encourages the body to burn fat cells for energy.
For a complete break down, consider using SHRED in SIX Challenge diet plan, which has produced amazing results for thousands without making you feel like you need a Ph.D. in nutrition to succeed.
If you see yourself making any of these mistakes, then forgive yourself, make a change, and get on track to a healthier, more energetic future.
