Top 5 Unusually Fast Fat Loss Tips

TIP 2: FOCUS ON MICRONUTRIENTS FIRST

Perhaps the most important tip I can give anyone trying to get and stay lean is to look at food from a micronutrient standpoint.

This is not something you’ll hear from most nutrition experts, in fact they’ll tell you just the opposite, to look at your food from a macronutrient view (protein, carbs, fats)…

…this is what most people end up doing, and it is still important for fat loss, but the big turning point in my personal fat loss journey happened when I started to focus on eating most of my calories from foods that are super loaded with nutrients instead of stressing out over my protein, fat, and carb ratios.

The foods I’m talking about are vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds.

Now don’t mistake this for a vegetarian or vegan diet, that’s not what I’m talking about, but a diet that supplies the body with the nutrients it requires to burn fat optimally.

Now, you’ll notice that I didn’t include lean animal meats on this list. Well, that doesn’t mean these foods won’t help you burn fat, they will, but what I’m saying is you need to take your focus off of the whole protein first mindset and instead go with a “nutrient first” mindset.

I was raised, as I’m sure a lot of people are, that any good meal needs to start with a big portion of beef or poultry, and that the nutrient rich foods (like vegetables, fruits, beans, etc.) are a small part of that meal, if at all.

I’m saying you have to flip that equation entirely and that most of your meal should be based in the nutrient loaded foods, with a smaller bit of the animal proteins.

The fact is that these foods have the most nutrients, and when you give your body the required nutrients without overloading it with foods that have little nutrients, fat loss become so much easier because the hunger and cravings that plague dieters almost disappears.
