I just read a post stating the insulin sensitivity was the most influential factor when working towards fat loss.
I am here to tell you that it is not true and if you hear this, please, for your own sake do not believe it. The most important factor in this regard is energy intake. To lose weight, you need to be consuming less calories than what you burn in a day, consistently over a period of time. This is called a caloric deficit, and it can be created through either an increase in energy expenditure or a decrease in caloric intake. You could also combine the two. When you have this nailed, THEN you can start worrying about the smaller stuff. Energy Balance is king and without measuring what you're putting in, then you're just guessing, and that guess could be very wrong considering a lot of people do not have a good understanding of what foods contain in terms of calories/macronutrients without tracking it. Here are 4 transformations that happened over 20 weeks. Brought to you by a caloric deficit. Track your macros and lift your weights. #TeamHFS
