The Top 3 Mistakes People Make When Trying To Lose Fat and How To Stop Them
When it comes to fat loss I see these mistakes time and time again.
So, I thought it would be in your best interest to learn what these mistakes are so that you can stop yourself from making them and continue to progress.
This one went first because it’s the king.
Consistency is the most important thing when it comes to fat loss.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve heard
“I eat healthy Monday to Friday and then have some treats on the weekend”
I’m all for moderation but when these so called treats roll into
2 bottles of wine, half a cheese board at pre drinks, a kebab and chips to finish the night out and what ever greasy food you can get your hands on the next morning I start to have my doubts.
The thing about restriction during the week and binge during the weekend is that you down regulate all of your metabolic functions
And then you dump a whole heap of food onto that downregulated system
And now your poor body can’t metabolise it at that point in time so it stores it as fat.
Furthermore, this usually leads to binge eating like behaviour, but, that’s a topic for another blog.
Take home point: Consistency is king. You need to follow a plan 7 days a week. Not 4, not 5 but 7 days a week if your goal is fat loss.
- They keep doing the same workouts over and over again.
Again, this is from experience, but the amount of ladies that have told me that they’ve been doing a pump, attack or other cardio based group fitness class for the last 6 or so months and haven’t seen any changes is somewhat astounding.
The reason for this is that you’ve adapted to the stimulus, and as such, your body doesn’t need to change anymore as the stimulus is not new.
The way that we combat that is by increasing the stimulus. That is very easy in resistance training.
You can increase:
- The weights lifted
- Sets of exercises
- Reps per set
To create a new training stimulus and continue to ride that beautiful fat loss train.
Take home point – whatever type of training you choose to do make sure that you’re constantly increasing the stimulus so that your body doesn’t adapt.

- They don’t ask for help.
This one is also very common. People will always tell me that they saw ‘X Diet’ in a magazine.
This concept kind of baffles me in all honesty.
You’re going to let a $10 magazine dictate every single part of your dietary intake because some celebrity that was paid exuberant amounts to make these claims tell you to do so.
But it’s true, and we’re all guilty of it, me inclusive.
The way I see it’s like trying to diagnose yourself from a google search.
When you put it into perspective like that it’s rather silly, isn’t it.
It gives you some certainty that they can help you do the same instead of spinning your wheels aimlessly hoping for the best.
