Part 2: How to Lose Body Fat

How to Lose Body Fat

Nutritional value

Nutrients also plays an important role in body fat loss. For example, if you follow a get-up-and-go (energy restricted) diet, you can become both undernourished and overfed by the wrong diet construction. Therefore, it is important to opt for high-quality, nutritious food items. But even still, you can create too much fat by eating too much ‘healthy’ food when you get take in more calories than you burn.

Strength training

There are several ways to become caloric deficit. One way is eating fewer calories. Also, eating the same amount of calories and also exercising to burn more calories. Focusing on fat loss without muscle loss, your activity should primarily focus on strength training. Then, to a lesser extent, on cardio training. In contrast to what many think, according to different studies, strength training leads to more fat loss without muscle loss. As opposed to just an energy-restricted diet.


Muscle building and strength training

Recent studies looked at two groups of obese subjects on identical, very low-calorie diets. One group received cardio training (walking, cycling, jogging). The other group received only strength training. After 12 weeks, both groups lost weight. The cardio training group lost 30% fat mass and 70% muscle mass. The strength training group lost 100% fat mass. The results show that the group with strength training lost significantly more fat. Also, the resting metabolism (how quickly you burn calories without effort) of the ‘cardio group’ was less than the ‘strength training group’. Building muscle ensures that more fat mass is burned. In order to lose fat mass without losing muscle mass, the best method is to combine a caloric-restricted diet with strength training.


Responsible diets

Finally, calorie-restricted diets do not mean that you have to starve yourself or eat extremely few calories. Large calorie deficits always causes the loss of muscle. Whenever your body gets too little energy and begins to burn proteins, means that you will break down muscle even with strength training and necessary protein in your diet.
