Now you know how to track things better than just scale weight don’t get lazy, stick with the measurements from part 1. The percentage of people who lose plenty of fat then gain back even more is insane!
The next most important thing to know is:
“You must go slow”
A huge part of successful fat loss is having the steady patience to lose it slowly. It can take anywhere from 18 to 24 months for your body to acclimatize to a new lower body fat level. Before this “getting use to period” is passed you will gain back the fat at a ferocious pace.
Take the absolute total body fat you would like to lose in a completely ideal scenario and cut it in half. Then divide that fat loss over a full 12 month schedule.
This is sane and sustainable.
