1. Cut Out The Sugar.
Sugar is one of the main culprits for fat gain. It is a pure source of glucose and most individuals don't need very much of the stuff.
Unfortunately, most people eat way too much and the result is weight gain. Glucose that does not get burned as an energy source will get stored as fat.
your blood is charged with insulin it not only assists in fat storage it inhibits your ability to use your fat reserves as fuel.
2. Reduce Your Starchy Carb Intake.
If your volume of exercise is high you should be able to handle some starchy carbs, although the amount is probably less than you think. For the average sedentary individual looking to drop some lb's, this number should be somewhere in the neighbourhood of 50-100 grams.
3. Eliminate Low Quality Foods.
Replace bread, pasta, cereals, rice with vegetables, fruits (berries, cherries, apples, and pears are best for weight loss), and high quality protein. Doing this will not only reduce your insulin response when you eat, it will provide your body with the much need nutrients it needs to keeping running at full charge.
4. Decrease Your Fat Consumption.
So although it is an essential macro-nutrient for fat loss, and needs to be included in all diet regimes, eating half a jar of almond butter, half a cup of coconut oil, and a pack of bacon a day probably isn't going to give you the results you are looking for. At the end of the day, calories do matter so just watch your consumption.
5. Intermittent Fast.
I find for myself I have the best results following an 16-8 fasting plan. This means that I fast for 16 hours and eat in an 8 hour window (ex. 10am-6pm). There are a tonne of benefits to intermittent fasting including enhanced insulin sensitivity, re-balancing your hormones, and increased fat burning.
