💥 Fat loss occurs when your body is in a calorific deficit enabling your body to burn fat as fuel
💥 Weight loss occurs when you drop your carbs, are dehydrated, go to the toilet or haven’t eaten yet!
💥 Rapid weight gain can be seen in the days leading up to menstruation as the body prepares to have a period. It is still possible for this to happen without an actual period too.
💥Weight gain can also be seen when weight training. Building muscle means adding mass and that means adding weight! But the good kind! Adding shape and muscle in the right places will make you look slimmer!
So evidently we want to be focusing on FAT LOSS not WEIGHT LOSS! Controversial right?
Basically as you can see the scales aren’t everything. This is why I always encourage anyone on a plan with me to use a piece of clothing, measurements and photos to track progress rather than just the scales!
The scales can show a drop in fat loss as when you do you will lose weight but they will also fluctuate back up if you eat a higher carb meal before bed, are menstruating or haven’t had a bowel movement.
A bit like a doctor that gives a prognosis on symptoms rather than just test results – do the same with tracking your progress – use all of the tools to measure where you’re at rather than just the number on the scales.
