PowerPoint Presentation:

We all want to look better and feel healthier than we do--we want to lose those extra pounds and develop those muscles. At the same time, anyone who’s attempted to lastingly improve their body composition knows it can be very, very difficult. You have to create a well-designed plan with useful and realistic goals, and you have to commit to them.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sticking to the plan takes a lot of determination. But sometimes, even as you accomplish all your goals without fail, you find you’re still not getting the results you’re looking for, and this can be very frustrating.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The bad news is there is a whole host of not so simple mistakes you can be making even when you think you’re acing the program. The good news is this presentation can help you identify and avoid those mistakes before they hold you back .

Mistake #1: Starting Too Late:

It’s best to err on the side of caution and give yourself more than enough time, rather than not enough time to accomplish your goal, especially if you’re aiming to get your body more fit and more toned than it’s ever been before. And after all, there’s nothing wrong with being in shape too early. So how fast can you lose weight? Obviously it’s different for everyone—in general, the higher your body fat percentage is, the faster you can lose it. On average, you can bet on losing about 1-2 pounds of fat per week. But remember: everyone’s different, and fat loss will almost never be perfectly linear. Mistake #1: Starting Too Late

Mistake #2: Not Knowing How Much You’re Eating:

It’s all about caloric intake. D oesn’t matter how much mass you eat or where it’s from—if you’re consuming more energy than you need in a day, you’re not going to lose fat. You need a healthy caloric deficit, a ratio tailored to your specific body. If you’re not keeping a detailed record of what you’re eating and all the metrics involved, you won’t succeed. Mistake #2: Not Knowing How Much You’re Eating

Mistake #3: Undereating:

When it comes to training and cardio, more isn’t always better. And when it comes to nutrition, less isn’t always better either. Maintenance calories can generally be assumed to fall in the 14-15x total bodyweight ballpark. A 20% deficit is usually a good place to start—that puts you around 12x TBW for your starting caloric intake. Mistake #3: Undereating

Mistake #4: Not Using an Outcome Based Approach:

What you do should always be based on the results of what you’ve done. If you’re not getting the results you’re after, make changes. Reassess every two weeks and make sure you’re on track. If not, do something about it! Mistake #4: Not Using an Outcome Based Approach

Mistake #5: Putting Quality Before Quantity:

When it comes to weight loss, as I’ve mentioned, it’s all about creating a deficit. S imply eating nutritious foods and avoiding processed junk might help in other areas of health, but if you’re eating too much, you’re eating too much. We’ve already covered caloric intake, but let’s look at another important metric: protein intake. This should be set to anywhere between 1.0 and 1.5 g/ lb of bodyweight.
