Fat Loss Tips: Calorie Restrictions

To achieve any fat loss results we DO have to have a calorie restriction. How much of a calorie restriction really comes down to how quickly you want to see those results.
 
As a rule of thumb, I think you need to have a minimum of 100 calorie deficit to achieve any goals in a substantial amount of time, all the way up to a maximum of 1000 calorie deficit. Can some people get away with even larger deficits then that, yes. However, I’m not sure how much of those calories are really FAT LOSS. At some point, they body starts to break down muscle tissue as well and the farther your calorie deficit gets the great chance you reduce muscle tissue.
 
The two main negatives of this: you’ll work hard in the gym to get defined but if you are breaking down the tissue the muscle won’t look more denied and the other is your body will also take tissue from things like heart, liver, etc. It doesn’t just pull from skeletal muscles.
 
In a future blog we’ll talk about the how to restrict calories.
