1-Count your calories-While it helps you be mindful of the amount of food you eat and can be a good kick starter to eating properly it’s just not something that is necessary for most people and doesn’t equate to fat loss like you’d think. You’re better off eating Whole Foods such as organic / grass fed meats, wild caught fish, eggs, fruits and vegetables, nuts, legumes and beans, and potatoes. 

Better strategy- Eat when you’re hungry, stop when you’re satisfied. 

2-Increase meal frequency=more fat loss- Don’t stress yourself out if you miss a meal and don’t eat every 2-3 hours. There’s no hard data that proves eating every 2-3 hours boosts fat loss.

Better strategy- Keep drinking enough water throughout the day, eat whole food when you’re hungry and can eat. Stay away from the junk! 

3-More cardio=more weight loss– steady state cardio is great but isn’t necessarily best and more isn’t better.  In order to burn more than you have been do intervals and use weight training. 

Better strategy-Use nigh intensity cardio with exercises that challenge your body.

4-Fats are bad– Fat got a bad rap years ago now Keto (high fat) is prob the most popular diet now. Interesting how things change. Studies have proven higher fat diet leads to increase brain function, decrease in health issues, reduce inflammation, and body fat loss. 

Better strategy- Eat healthy fats such as avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, nuts, fish and eggs to help your health. 

5- Lift lighter weights for higher reps- Light weights are ok but heavier weights are better for fat loss in general. You need to increase stress on the body to help produce the fat burning and muscle building hormones for ideal fat loss. Using light weight doesn’t get your heart rate up as much as heavy and would be equivalent to steady state cardio vs interval intensity cardio. Both are good but make sure you use both methods.
