Do you want to “lose “weight” ??
I put the “weight” part in quotation marks for a reason. When you step on the scales and the number has changed, it could be because of a variety of factors. Body fat, lean muscle, fluid. Remember what you really should be focussing on is losing excess body fat (visualise some fluffy whipped cream). Ideally this should happen whilst preserving lean muscle mass (visualise hard and small batteries).
Losing 10 kg of weight on the scales is not ideal if…
On the other hand…
Tips to help you lose excess body fat whilst preserving muscle
- Burn more calories than you consume each day or each week (this is the only way that weight loss happens).
- Consume adequate protein
- Perform resistance training 3 x week (short effective sessions are fine).
