Fat loss isn’t easy. Simple, yes. But not easy. Anyone who’s lost fat will tell you that it requires perseverance, determination, and a lifestyle change. Despite not being easy, fat loss can be extremely rewarding. Not only does it improve your general health, but it also makes you feel great about yourself. Sadly, this loss is short-lived for most. Reaching your fat loss goal might feel like a victory, the light at the end of the tunnel, but it’s only half the battle. The toughest part is keeping it off. The biggest misconception about losing weight is that once it’s off, it’ll stay off forever. It takes as much effort, if not more, to not gain it back. We see more and more people achieve the impossible only to find themselves getting fat again. Why does this happen? Why are you vulnerable to getting fat post weight loss?

So, what’s the deal then?

To lose fat you have two ways – the slow, simple, and long term approach or the quick, hard, and short term approach. Both are fine. But once you lose the fat, make sure you transition to a sustainable way of eating/diet so you can keep the gains/losses. Again, nutrition shouldn’t be just about fat loss. It’s a lot more than that. Nutrition is what nourishes you, sustains life and it’s important for growth and health. Don’t overindulge or deprive yourself. Find the balance and make it a habit for life. Remember, the goal is to build the body you want and sustain it for life.
