⠀ #repost @saltylifts⠀ • • •⠀ 🌟Golden Pyramid of Fat Loss🌟
🕺🏼Have you been spinning your wheels trying to lose fat?
🤯For so long, I focused on the wrong thing. I wasn’t tuned into my diet, I was doing boatloads of cardio, not lifting weights, drinking skinny teas and taking fat burners. If it said “lose weight fast”, I probably tried it!
🖐🏼Fast forward five years... and lots of mistakes later, I created this little pyramid for you guys so you know what to focus on when you are trying to tone up and lose fat.
⚠️Here’s the golden pyramid of fat loss for you guys!
1️⃣Calorie Deficit: Eating less calories than your body needs is the only way to lose fat!
2️⃣Eat Enough Protein: to maintain muscle mass, to recover from workouts, to keep you full and satiated when you’re dieting and so you get toned aka you don’t turn “skinny fat”
3️⃣Lift Weights: 2-5x a week! (usually 3-4 is a sweet spot for most people) don’t be afraid to go heavy, it WON’T make you bulky unless you eat too many calories
4️⃣Sleep: 7-9 hours a night to recover, rest and keep your hunger levels in check. when you don’t sleep enough, your body will be hungrier. so get those Zzzs!
5️⃣Cardio, Movement, and 10k steps/day. Finding active hobbies you enjoy will keep you consistent and make it a lot more fun.
☝🏼Find what works for you, your lifestyle, habits, and preferences. Focus on the BIG stuff and don’t let the little things distract you from the big picture. Hope you have a kickass Friday! 💪🏼🤙🏼
mucho love to you all!! 💙salty
Because it's Tuesday! We all get to sit at the Cool Kids' Table 😅
#Healthy meals in great abundance are found at the Tuesday Kitchen ❤️ Culinary genius Chef @Mon_Cardenas once again showcases his passion for delicious, worthwhile food by putting a heartier spin on beloved favorites.
Notice how the burgers are bereft of cheese! Cheffie aims to let the #WagyuBeef patties impress the palate on their own. Juicy, chewy beefy goodness without the milky-buttery taste of cheese to compete with it.
The pasta isn't swimming in sauce either, but rather elegantly blended with freshly-cooked chicken and choice #organic herbs and spices.
#Bruschetta made with farm fresh tomatoes, and lox salmon for the perfect #appetizers .
The #FrenchMacarons of course, are the perfect ending to this robust and filling meal.
If we're able to control ourselves and eat accordingly, then this meal set is genuinely healthy. Perfect for #caloriecounting#macros .
We really ought to pay attention to all the additives and condiments we put in our food. A good majority of unhealthy and unwanted calories are found there. Be mindful of dipping sauces, as well as the extra cheese, extra mayo, etc.
It really is okay for us to eat anything as long as we don't go overboard. We should be strong enough to not let food get the best of us.
Good food is meant to be enjoyed properly; and not scarfed down out of sheer desperation. Even better if the food is shared with the People you love. 😃
Everyone else can have the #macarons , I'm focusing on the lox and cream cheese 😄
Local friends, check out the Tuesday Kitchen on Facebook and place your orders, you won't regret it ❤️
