Losing weight may seem like an uphill battle. After all, changing your lifestyle and implementing discipline takes work and forces you outside of your comfort zone. But if shedding fat seems overwhelming, health coach Sarah Duff explained that you really only need these five essentials for fat loss.
Sarah posted on Instagram her five key elements to losing fat. According to her, they are:
- Eating in a calorie deficit (with lots of nutrient-dense foods).
- A willingness to take responsibility.
- Knowing your real why (usually more than just aesthetics).
- Consistency, consistency, consistency.
She explained there's no magical formula for finding your calorie deficit, but this formula is a good place to start and then adjust according to your results. As far as compromise, it could be a matter of choosing between wine or dessert or making sure you stick to just one doughnut. You also need to take responsibility for your actions and behaviors and not blame them on anyone else. Furthermore, finding your "why" will keep you motivated to keep going. And finally, you won't see any changes unless you stay consistent with your healthy habits.
If you can stick to these five things, you'll be able to reach your goals. It may not happen overnight, but with patience and consistency, you'll finally get the results you're looking for.
