Lastly, there are a lot of little things that can significantly influence your ability to lose body fat!
Here are a few to watch out for->
1️⃣Eat enough vegetables.
Lower carb vegetables are a “free for all food” and you can eat as much of them as you want, which is helpful in reducing hunger and filling up your stomach 😋
They also provide water and indigestible fiber, which will make you less hungry so you eat less👌🏼
Plants also provide key nutrients involved in metabolism like potassium and magnesium, both of which are reduced on lower carb diets.
2️⃣Drink enough water.
Staying hydrated is extremely important for fat loss because water is necessary for beta-oxidation, which is how the body burns fat as an energy source ✅. In addition, if you’re eating a lower carb, higher protein diet adequate water will help reduce carbohydrate cravings because you automatically lose a significant amount of storage water as your body sheds its muscle glycogen stores😊
3️⃣Be honest with yourself.
This applies to all your habits including how much you eat, how much sleep you get, and how hard you train.
It will make things easier because you will finally be able to troubleshoot what’s really going wrong.
Lunges, squats, half straight leg deadlift.
These allow you to not put as much weight on your back compared to using a regular barbell, so it is great for people with injuries. These landmines also let you go heavier than doing excercises with dumbbells. Win win

Dear Straightstand, why are you so very hard? Never mind, don’t answer, the reasons don’t really matter anyway... but practice does🙌🏻 When I can’t seem to find airtime, I go back to basics and prop assists to find the airtime with form. This’s one of my favorites and the first time I was able to repeat comfortably on my weak side. After a few rounds, was able to find that elusive hang time... #handstand365 Day 419

No diet, even prep, is worth your health and sanity. I swore off competing after my first show because of how unbalanced it was. It mentally confined me and I was miserable. Today, I don’t even feel like I’m on a diet, never mind prep. I’m not going to act like I don’t miss pizza and fries, but in the long run you make sacrifices for a goal. Just don’t let it doesn’t hinder your well-being. The best body in the world isn’t worth it if you’re not happy in it. #5weeksdown#14weeksout
