There is ONE VITAL ELEMENT we need to incorporate daily into our schedule when looking to lose fat.
This vital element has THE BIGGEST IMPACT on fat loss. That is…
“Walking EVERY SINGLE DAY to get steps in.”
If you’re not willing to commit and hit your steps daily, then you’re not ready to commit to a diet to lose lots of fat.
It is pointless to diet, calorie restrict, without hitting a daily step count and moving as much as possible each day.
I know this from data collected over the years from clients and myself.
Any research paper that looks into the effects of dieting successfully all conclude that walking is fundamental and has a huge impact.
Stage athletes will walk miles every singly day when in prep for a show because it works.
Aside from that, it’s hugely beneficial for mental health and it is an opportunity to learn.
Use walking to burn fat and grow your mind
I use my daily walks to listen to podcasts or educational content.
It gets to the point where I look forward to the walk as I’m excited to listen to the next piece of content.
Even an audiobook is a good option. Burn the fat and grow the mind.
The daily step count we aim to hit each day is 10,000.
Now I know it’s not always possible to hit 10,000 on a workday. Perhaps we can only hit 5,000 – 7,000 steps.
We then clock up the extra steps on a weekend.
So long as at the end of the week, we’re hitting a minimum of 70,000 steps. Then. that’s great! If you can do weekend days of 20,000 steps.
You will see huge fat loss progression.
I aim to hit 20,000 steps at least one day of the weekend when doing this two-month diet.
Two days later after the 20,000 step walk, it’s like WOW, that shifted things on the scales.
The second thing to try and do every single day is to…
Fidget and move as much as you can.
Take every opportunity to move your body:
- hoover the house
- stand instead of sitting at your desk each day,
- drinks LOTS of water so you’re constantly walking to the toilet (ideally up and downstairs)
- walks to the grocery store, etc…
We call this – keeping your NEAT levels high:
It makes scientific sense to keep this high.
When you reduce calories, you will feel more lethargic. If you then relax and sit more because of this lethargy in the diet phase.
Then you are cancelling out the 250 cals you have removed from your daily intake.
Because you are moving less and thus burning less calories.
As a minimum, you have to move as much as you were when you were eating at maintenance or in a surplus.
Ideally, we want to take advantage and lock our efforts in for these 2 months to maximise our results by walking and fidgeting lots
Reset the body and mind
A diet isn’t just about losing fat.
It’s also a great opportunity to reset the body and maintain a strict healthy lifestyle and diet.
You will come out the other end feeling like a new human and ready to tackle life head-on.
It’s more motivational to think:
“I’m losing fat and taking the opportunity to reset my body and mind”
