50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss Quotes

“A good diet is one that is based upon whole food, nutrient rich foods. You can tailor this list to suit your preferences, but a good diet should begin with:

- meat/fish/poultry/eggs
- dairy products (if you digest them well. I don't recommend dairy, as most people do not digest it, it has medley of
negative health effects and modern dairy is of low quality. Experiment for yourself and see)
- vegetables and tubers
- fruit
- whole grains
- legumes (if you digest them well)
- nuts
- healthy fat sources, olive oil, walnut oil, macadamia nut oil, coconut oil, avocado oil”

“Be prepared to fail. Not every day is going to be victory.

You can lose daily battles, but still win the overall war. Do not major in the minor.

you is your fault. And you don’t get a second chance when death comes for you.”

“Being overweight/obese changes your genetics for the worse. A large part of your genetic code is malleable (epigenetics), and being obese leads to maladaptive adaptations in your body that then are passed on to the your offspring.

Being healthy and lean is comparatively far cheaper.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“Diets like paleo, carnivore and keto are fundamentally based on changing what you eat, and not focusing much on how much you eat.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“Do not try to lose weight as fast as possible for forever. Metabolism does not like abrupt changes.

Losing weight too fast for too long results in muscle loss and causes hormonal changes that put your body into more of a fat storing, hungry state. Yo-yo dieting never ends for this reason.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“Eat protein at every meal.

Seriously. Protein is highly satiating, highly nutritious, and it prevents overeating and quick energy grabs that constantly sabotage people.”

The reality to fat loss is the place you store the most of it is the last place you fully lose it. So don’t set yourself up for failure with false expectations.

Losing fat is like raising kids, it goes by fast, but day to day it doesn’t seem so. Most people do not notice dramatic changes until the 3 month mark. Take your time.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“Fat Loss versus Weight Loss

Understand the difference. Fat loss refers to specifically losing fat cells. This is what you want to diet for.

Weight loss refers to any combination of losing fat, bodywater, and muscle.

You do not want to lose muscle. To avoid muscle loss, you must eat an adequate amount of protein, and having protein at every meal is a sound strategy.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“Fat loss will require an energy deficit. You will need to eat less food that you currently consume. Period.

This is incontrovertible. You cannot diet forever, but you will need to diet for some period of time.

There are many ways of doing this, some require counting calories, some don’t. Regardless, an energy deficit is happening on some level.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“If you are more than 20 pounds overweight, you likely have high estrogen, skewed leptin levels, lowered testosterone levels, and are insulin resistant.

What’s that all mean? Your hormones are contributing to you being overweight and/or obese, and you need to fix them by way of dietary changes. This is why fat loss is not only calories.

Your biochemistry is what is responsible for how your body metabolizes food, stores fat, and burns fat. I am going to make this point more than once. You need to educate yourself on your own biology, and subsequently make appropriate food choices.

A high protein, moderate to high fat, low carb, zero to very low sugar diet is probably going to be the best strategy for you.

“Everything in moderation” is not going to be a good strategy. You need to fix your hormonal health for the long term.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“Invest in the process. You may be a long time away from optimized health and body, but you will only achieve that
through effort and knowledge learned through practice.

The process is your practice, and you must practice daily. Health has to become your lifestyle or it will not work.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“It is not expensive to change your eating. It is expensive to diet if you think dieting involves special diet foods.

Most people focus on superfoods, health foods, and what they can and can’t eat. That is all bullsh*t, and it obscures that deeper, practical truth that losing bodyfat requires improving metabolic/hormonal health.

Eating healthy is not expensive once you understand what foods are healthy.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“It’s not the food industries fault. Food does not magically jump into your mouth, you voluntarily select it, chew it, eat
it.

It is not fast foods responsibility to fix your health, and your supermarket is not your personal trainer and nutritionist.

Your life, your lifestyle, your choices are all under your domain of control.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“The body of evidence is clear; once you become fat for an extended period of time, your thyroid and brain reset
themselves to that higher weight.

It takes years to reset that back down to a lower weight. You must lift weights and fix your hormonal health to get your body to reset. This is not arguable.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“There is no such thing as a 'perfect' diet. Diets based upon alarmism or food demonization are bad science.

The 'best' diet is the one that covers your protein, fat, and carb needs, and supplies you with sufficient micronutrients.

Different kinds of diets work for different people and different situations. Some are proven to work better and more reliably than others.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“Track your bodyweight daily. So long as your scale gradually trends sown overtime, you are losing fat.

“Use your biofeedback.

Do not eat and multitask. Eat slowly, learn the difference between being full and being stuffed.

Pay attention to how food digests and your energy levels afterwards. Do not eat foods that do not digest well, or that crash your energy.

Do not eat foods that make you feel sluggish and bloated. Do eat foods that make you feel energetic.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“You are fat because you eat too much. Do not buy into the bullsh*t. There are no secrets.

Fat loss is not only your hormones and it is not only your genetics. Does it affect those thing? Yes, it does. Is is affected by them? Absolutely it is.

But the crux of the issue is that you overeat food beyond what your body needs. For as long as you are overweight, this is a self evident truth.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

You are the sum of the 5 people you invest the most energy in. If those people are making you unhealthy, time to make a change and direct it elsewhere.”

50 Facts and Strategies of Fat Loss

“You want to achieve 1lb of weight loss, that means each week, your weight goes down a lb. Some weeks it might be less or more, but 1lb is sustainable and reasonable.

Caveat: The more obese you are, the more you lose each week. At least in the beginning. The closer you get to normal BMI, the slower your weight loss will become.”

Twitter post Quotes

“A lot of people get away with neglecting their health in their 20s, because they are still young enough that you can get 'back into shape' in only 2-3 months. They still think it will be easy in their 30s or 40s, only to be shocked at how much harder everything is.

What took 2-3 months now takes 4-6, or longer. Recovery is slower, body is weaker, metabolism has declined. You're looking at 6 months minimum for a serious health overhaul.”

Twitter post

“According to some estimates, by 2025 2.7 billion adults will be overweight. Don’t be part of that group.”
