For those of you who have been on this Wasp Workout journey with me, working to build some more muscle, but don't feel like you're seeing the results, let's talk about body fat. The key to muscle definition is body fat. Most rock stars and super models don't spend hours pumping iron, but many have very visible muscle definition, even if they don't have enormous muscles. Whether your muscles are large or small, the key to seeing them them is reducing your body fat (hopefully not so far as rock-stars and super models ๐Ÿ˜‰.)
.
When I want to drop a quick few pounds to enhance my muscle definition I have a few, go-to habits I incorporate that are predictable and simple, but very effective.
1. REDUCE MY SUGAR/BOOZE INTAKE. I don't go cold-turkey. I like moderation. But I do cut it back significantly, aiming for at least two-days a week with NO sugar other than the little bit of honey I put in my tea in the morning, and the other days with very small amounts of sugar. (Watch out for hidden sugar! Check your ingredients! It's in everything these days!). When I do eat my little square of dark chocolate or that cookie with my tea, I remember to ENJOY IT. If I worry about it and feel guilty while eating it, I'll miss all the pleasure and just crave another.
2. REDUCE MY PORTION SIZES. One of the hardest things to get in the habit of is only eating until you're satisfied and no more. It takes concerted practice because so much of our eating is unconscious. But slowing down and really paying attention so that I don't eat beyond satisfied, and I don't eat when I'm not hungry, is huge for body fat reduction.
3. ONE MEAL A DAY WITH NO STARCH.
4. INCREASE VEGGIE INTAKE. Without drowning them in sauces, oils and dressing. Again, I use those yummy things, but in moderation. (See #waspworkout #veggies.)
.
I've heard experts say that losing weight is 30% exercise and %70 what you eat. In my life I've seen that to be true. .
So if you've been working hard for a while building up your strength, it might be well worth it to work hard for a while to clean up your food intake and watch your results pop out!

    @jesscolefilms you have ecto and meso wrong... ectomorphs are your tall people that have issues building muscle (they still can gain lean muscle mass or fat but have more issues doing so) meso are the ones that have the easiest time building muscle mass. Endo are the people who are generally shorter and stocky, built more like dwarves in LOTR... regardless, all humans can (and and often do) share these traits, like endomesomorphs or ectomesomorphs.

    Tranny much?

    @jesscolefilms and some people are xenomorphs, which aren't even really people! Their soul drive in life is to adapt their body with each new opportunity to be their best, healthiest self. ๐Ÿ˜‚
