“Hey Shorti …”
It’s absolutely possible to burn fat and build muscle at the same time, but it takes conscious nutrition and training.
You’ll ideally want to be
- in a small calorie deficit (minus ca. 200-300 kCal per day)
- weight training with challenging weights
- eating sufficient protein. (Aim for 0.8 – 1.2g per kilogram of body weight, depending on your goals and preferred eating style. e.g. vegans should aim for a little less.)
Focus for at least 4-6 weeks on :
≫ getting enough protein and fresh produce throughout the day
≫ drinking plenty of water
≫ trying to always eat slowly and mindfully. (This will give your stomach time to send those all-important satiety signals, so you won’t accidentally overeat.)
To lose body fat, consume a majority of your carb-dense foods (like wholewheat pasta or rice) before and after exercise.
Outside of the 3-hour window following exercise, shift your focus to mostly protein, veggies, and healthy fats.
For your workouts, add in new stressors/variations (like a barbell instead of dumbbells, unilateral exercises, heavier resistance bands, med ball work) and follow a well-structured plan based on proven strategies.
