Focus On Fat Loss - Not Weight Loss

What you weigh is really important, but it's definitely not all and ends when it comes to health and fitness. You can have ideal weight in relation to your height, but if you also smoke 40 cigarettes a day then you may not be healthy. Don't get me wrong, if you are overweight or obese, then you need to lose weight, but many people can benefit from replacing fat with muscle (you will still be slimmer).

Do not be disappointed

Many people become very frustrated that their healthy new lifestyle does not cause them to lose weight feeling their efforts are worth it. This may be due to the fact that their fat turns into muscle when they are full. It is helpful to know the difference between losing fat and losing weight, before assessing how successful your new healthy lifestyle is. If you really do well, you need to know about it.

The Difference Between Fat Loss and Weight Loss

When people are on an accidental diet, they can lose a lot of weight quickly, but this is mainly for the loss of body fluids and not being fat. This is why weight loss is rare and weight loss is inevitable. Scale does not tell you how much weight your body consists of and how much fat. Weight loss can be temporary as your weight fluctuates from day to day, but changing the composition between fat and muscle in your body will result in more lasting results.

Another way to measure progress

It is important that you realize the success you have achieved to stay focused and motivated. Using scale should not be the only way you measure your progress. How your clothes, watches and rings now suit you is a great guide to how well you are growing, if they are loose then you are on the right track. You should also record your measurements (BMI, waist, hips, chest and thighs) regularly to see if they are inches away. Remember that muscle weighs more than fat, so don't just rely on scale. There are also ways you can check your body fat and body composition (ratio of lean body fat to fat).

Don't be a martyr to your scale, they can only drive you crazy. Understand the difference between weight loss and fat loss, using healthy eating habits along with regular exercise. Use many methods to record your progress and measure the success of your weight loss. You can lose inches without losing weight.
