Are they the same thing? 🤷♂️
No. They are 2 very different things let me explain as simple as possible…
→ Weight Loss = Seeing the weight go down on the scale
→ Inch Loss = Seeing inches lost on the body.
Both can intertwine but more often than not, inches go down and the scales don’t.
A LOT of people associate looking good or being in shape with being light on the scales.
Typically, people want to fit into their clothes better, feel more confident naked in front of their partners and be able to look in the mirror without hating themselves.
None of those things come down to what the scales say.
We should be aiming for inches lost.
So how do we do that?
- Be in a calorie deficit – you can work yours out here: https://agf-fitness.stridist.com/agfmacro-calculator-7329
- Weight train 2-4 times per week. (focus workouts around Deadlifts, Squats, Bench Press, Shoulder press, Lunges, RDL’s)
- Increase your daily steps – start by increasing your currently daily steps by 1000 to 2000.
- Increase your protein intake (this helps you recover from sessions faster, keeps you fuller for longer so you don’t feel hungry all the time)
Try these steps.
Don’t focus on the scales, the only time you need to focus on the scale is if you’re competing for a competition or you need to be a certain weight for something.
