Food for Thought Friday – The Hierarchy of Weight Loss & Body Composition
Way too often, people think that, because they work out 4-6 times per week, that they will magically lose weight and get the body of their dreams. I wish that were true!
The #1 determinant of weight loss is DIET. It takes a looooong time to burn calories and just seconds to pack them on. You must be in a caloric deficit (with high-quality foods) to lose weight.
Next, STRENGTH TRAINING will help you lose weight. It’s more effective than cardio. You build muscle, you burn more fat, you look good. So, prioritize weights over cardio.
In terms of cardio, do what you enjoy. There isn’t one type of cardio that’s more superior to another for shedding fat. And gets lots of activity during the day – park farther in the parking lot, take the stairs, walk your dogs, play with your kids. Our bodies like to move.
Lastly, get plenty of sleep (7 hours minimum per night) and create habits to combat stress (medication, breathing, etc.). Also, if you’re in the 40+ crowd, make sure to get your hormones tested to get a picture of what’s going on.
And my parting thought: BE CONSISTENT. One good week isn’t going to make a huge change, but weeks and weeks of consistency will.
