How to get Weight Loss and Body Composition Change?

There is a lot of conflicting information to sort through when you are looking to lose weight or change your body composition. It can be really hard to know where to focus your energy to really get results.

Whether your goal is weight loss or muscle gain, understanding how much energy (KCal) your body needs to function is the most important factor for seeing results.

In this weeks Shero Life Podcast episode we explain what the Basal Metabolic Rate is and why you need to know this about yourself to ensure you stay healthy while you are dieting. There are many potential symptoms of being in an extended energy deficit including:

  • Fatigue

  • Weakened immune system

  • Feeling cold all the time

  • Down regulated hormone production - effects reproductive health

  • Digestion down regulated - GI distress, constipation, not absorbing nutrients from food

  • Skin damage - more sensitive to UV exposure

  • Depression

  • Impaired recovery from training

Knowing these potential risks and being able to recognise them in yourself will give you the ability to start fuelling more appropriately.

The priorities are for body composition change are

  1. Calories

  2. Macros

  3. Food Timing

  4. Food Composition

  5. Supplements & Hydration

None of which matter if you aren't adhering to the plan.
