Tips for a successful calorie deficit

Wanting to lose some body fat but you have trouble adhering to the fewer calories, in order to create a calorie deficit? Here are some tips that may help.

Meal timing

Aiming to eat your main meals and snack at the same time every day. This helps with managing your hunger cues and aligning them to your meal times. This helps with adhering to your meals as you know your next meal is due soon. It will help you from reaching for snacks outside your meal times, which lead to over eating. For example: breakfast 10am, lunch 1:30pm, snack 3:30pm and dinner at 6:30pm etc

Put meals on repeat

Alternate between two or three different breakfasts, lunches and dinners. That include a source of protein, low GI carbs and fats. Keeping it simple. Meals on repeat help take the guesswork out and manages decision fatigue, especially when we’re hungry. Studies have also shown that, the more varied the meals the more we overeat.

Increase Protein

Try to include a palm sized portion of lean protein to every main meal and one protein snack. Protein helps to keep you satiated for longer. It also helps minimise the loss of muscle mass when in a calorie deficit.

When you are in a true calorie deficit (eating less calories than you burn) you will be hungry. This we can’t change. But the tips above will help make the hunger more manageable.
