Fat Loss Tip - Calorie Reductions
One of the main components in the fat loss equation is calories. You need to be mindful of how many calories you are taking in each day. If you are not showing the results you desire it is likely you need to eat fewer calories but be careful, calorie cuts should be made with a scalpel not a hatchet.
Don't do a dramatic cut all at once or you risk committing metabolic suicide. You need to make your reductions gradual over a period of time. I advise dropping approximately 100-200 calories every 7 to 14 days.
I get into this topic and discuss other nutrition principles in detail in the new DVD I am working on now, including how to structure a good beginning meal plan with smart nutrient ratios for building muscle and burning fat.
