Ask A Personal Trainer: How to lose fat?



How Do We Lose Fat?

  • Understanding how you actually lose fat is important. In this video, my goal is not to sell you on “the best method”, as there are many. I aim to simply help understand what needs to be present, in any fat loss programme, to maximise efficiency and effectiveness.
  • If you learn and understand these simple principles, you can identify a great fat loss program from a mile away.


Fat Loss Principle #1

Exercise is at least 50% of the battle. Strength training specifically.

Optimal training frequency is approximately 4-hours each week.


Fat Loss Principle #2

Consistent and sufficient protein intake.

Protein is essential in a fat loss program to ensure that it’s fat you lose and not lean muscle tissue.


Fat Loss Principle #3
