I always get asked:
1️⃣ How do I lose fat from my hips/stomach/arms ect?
Firstly, if you want to lose fat you have to, above all else:
✅ Eat in a calorie deficit.
Boring, but true. There’s no magic pill or secret exercise that people are doing, they are mostly eating less food.
💡 Did you know how important it is to manage stress levels when you’re trying to lose fat? So many people focus on the nutrition and the exercise aspect, that we forget just how important it is to reduce our stress levels. It’s because talking about managing stress levels are kinda boring 🙄 There’s no sexy glute kickback exercise I can show you, I can’t show you cute meal prep options and you won’t feel like you are losing fat when you reduce your stress levels.
It’s so important to remember that health is so much more than counting calories and exercising 5x a week.
Prioritise you to start with. If you can’t go on a diet because this causes ED thoughts or if restricting your food takes you to a really bad place mentally than don’t do it. Health is so much more than a number and what we see on the outside. I know people that look amazing on the outside but are actually really sad, lonely, unhealthy people on the inside. But because they look
great, they are congratulated. Whereas if you look “fat and unhealthy” than whatever positive way you are feeling inside, people don’t care. You are shamed for being unhealthy. I’m lucky. I’m healthy on the inside. When I cut my processed foods or workout more, I feel better. I don’t feel worse. I promote an active lifestyle, but it’s what works for YOU. Remember that. You do you. If it makes you feel like shit when you workout because you pick your body apart, or when you start dieting because you start every morning staring in the mirror, hating it for not being thin, that is not healthy. Healthy is feeling good on the inside. Part of the challenge I’m running this month includes working out and making better food choices, but you don’t have to do that. You can do a yoga class. Or buy some essential oils. Or do some grounding. Sage your house. Or have a slumber party with a gf. Whatever makes you feel good, happy and alive 💕
