Lifting Weights, Eating Right, But Still No Results?
You've probably already learned that in order to speed up the metabolism and lose body fat, we need to build muscle instead of relying on cardio. We talked about it HERE.
You also know that just counting calories likely won't get you the body you want, if your macros aren't right. And I hope you're not falling for the other fat loss mistakes either — the ones we talked about HERE.
In today's episode, I'm sharing with you a few things that you may still be overlooking, but that play an important role in your fat loss efforts. These things are:
- Sleep. Did you know that those people who sleep 8 or more hours, are able to build about 55% more muscle than those who sleep 5 hours? So, give yourself plenty of time to wind down and get to bed at the right time. I recommend no phones in the bedroom, keeping the lights low, and avoiding any light or noise stimulation before bed. I personally am really sensitive to these things, so I follow this advice myself too. It might we the key for you as well!
- Insufficient Water Intake. It's true that dehydration can cause you to gain weight, so make sure to drink about 1/2 of your bodyweight in ounces. If you weigh 160 lbs, then aim for 80 oz of water. And no, coffee doesn't count!
- Stress. How are you mananging your stress? Is your cortisol sky high all the time? If it is, there's one reason why you're not able to lose fat. If your fat likes to accumulate especially around your belly, this is a pretty good indicator that you might be dealing with high cortisol.
