Get Plenty of Sleep
"The easiest thing women can do to lose body fat is get adequate sleep," Dre Delos Santos, CSCS, told POPSUGAR. "Admittedly, it's not a sexy answer, but lack of sleep is prevalent in women who struggle with fat loss."
Not getting enough sleep can make you crave unhealthy food the next day and cause you to overeat. Adequate sleep also lets your body rest and recover, which is when you are more likely to put on all that muscle you've been working hard to build at the gym. Aim for at least seven hours a night.
