No mucking around today.

Here are 5 of the biggest fat loss cock-ups I see men and women making everyday.

Fix these and you’ll lose chub.
Simple!

1. Not having back up.

Trying to lose fat without social support is the wrong way to go.

Ideally, you’d have your doctor, a trainer, a workout partner, your spouse, your workmates, and your friends all behind you.

Research shows that you’ll burn more fat with a support team in place.

It’s all about accountability.

2. Not using a structured program

If you ever go into the gym and then wonder what the hell you’re going to do, you’re already wasting your time – even before you choose.

Get a plan, know what you have to do, stick to it, and see it through.

That way, there’s no wasted time staring into the abyss.

3. Not changing your workout after 4 weeks.

That’s the longest you should go on one program.

Chances are you’ve either been doing nothing or the same thing over and over again for the last 6 months.

You’ve gotta change things up, not only to keep your body guessing but to keep your sanity!

You’ll get more results and you’ll have more fun.

4. Thinking that exercise is more important than your diet.

You wanna to lose chubzilla, right?

You have to eat right for fat loss.

You can’t train like an animal and then from McShoddy’s and expect to lose fat.

No program is that good.

None.

Diet beats training every time, like scissors beats paper.

Eat whole, natural foods.

Get lots of fibre, lots of protein, lots of vegetables.

Eat healthy fats, avoid trans fats.

Drink lots of water.

So simple, so effective.

Eat for energy, not for gluttony.

5. Not knowing when to quit.

I get emails from peeps asking if they can add even more cardio or add more lifting to their current workout plans.

After all, if some is good, more training must be better?Listen, you have to draw the line somewhere.

You can’t keep adding more and more exercise.

First, there is diminishing returns from each additional set you do, and from extra cardio.

Second, your body can breakdown from too much work, particularly when you are dieting.

Overtraining and low calories go together like oil and water.

Neither of these combos will make your engine run optimally.

And finally, focus on quality over quantity.

The “volume approach to fat loss” from the 1980’s (lots of cardio and lots of carbs) didn’t work.

Stick to high quality nutrition, and high-quality training.The only thing that matters is results.

Not muscle soreness, not feeling exhausted after each workout, and not feeling deprived of food.

Quality work and quality food for a better body.

That’s all from me!
