We all have heard about weight loss, but are you wondering what is fat loss? It’s simple math. Weight loss, as perceived by people, is the reduction of the number on the weighing scale. Yes, it’s just the number and nothing else when my clients come to me and ask for how many kilos will they lose if they take up a 3 months program. On the contrary, fat loss is a complex phenomenon that includes the positive changes in one’s body composition. It takes a number of aspects into consideration, to name a few, fat percentage, muscle mass, metabolism, body age, etc.
Fat loss as I see it, is a comprehensive approach towards weight management and maintenance of the lost fat. It mainly focuses on burning the extra layered fat in your body and making way for muscle mass which results in body toning and a massive inch loss. This does reduce the number on the weight scale BUT gives a lot of added benefits like your shrunk appearance, no saggy skin, firm body parts especially tummy, lower back, thighs and arms. To talk about it in a clinical manner, it helps balancing the hormones, mainly insulin which becomes insensitive when total body fat is higher than required. It also increases the activity of glucose metabolism and keeps the blood glucose stable throughout the day.
Moreover, talking about metabolism takes you back to your childhood days. Your activity levels in your childhood makes and bakes your metabolism which remains nearly the same in your adulthood and starts to fall as and when you start ageing. So, to match up your adulthood energy and enthusiasm to your younger days, eating every 2 hours is necessary. This keeps your body’s mechanism running all day long and you tend to burn more calories even while resting. This adds an extra advantage to your fat loss.
Just a simple approach but so many positive stems linked to it, can you believe it?
Let’s now turn towards how to initiate this approach and take it further!
