The 80/20 Pareto Principle of Losing Body Fat
Have you ever thought you are doing way too much and not getting enough return?
You end up spending too much time and energy focusing on the sh*t that doesn’t matter while attempting to lose body fat.
This is the checklist of dumb sh*t we end up doing with a tiny return
• Meal timing
• Pre and post workout meals
• Eating only organic food
• And much more
These “strategies” will only bring you an extra boost in health and fat loss but will not give you the 80% of the results you want.
Let’s face it. We want to lose fat to see our stomach for a change and change can be exhausting when we focus on the wrong strategies or principles.
The 80/20 principle from Richard Koch found a common theme in the uneven distribution of wealth in the world. 80% of the money belongs to 20% of the world’s population along with 80% of income from a business comes from 20% of the customers.
80% of fat loss comes from 20% of the things you can do to lose body fat which comes down to this one thing.
The calories in have to be less than the calories out.
You are maybe arguing in your head, “Nah-ah!” I’m sensitive to carbs!
I call bullsh*t.
Your macro balance doesn’t matter when you want to lose weight. The sugar doesn’t matter if you want to lose weight or the fats. The fact that your paleo, or shop at Whole Foods every week doesn’t matter either because you can’t beat the Laws of Thermodynamics which states that energy can not be created nor destroyed, but can be re-distributed.
In this case, if you consume more energy than you use for an extended period consistently, the extra fuel is distributed as fat.
That’s it. You can cheat these laws.
Professor Mark Haub performed the Twinkie diet, where he consumed most of his calories from junk food and Twinkies, and he still managed to lose 27 pounds.
It was all about energy balance!
He remained in a caloric deficit, and he lost body fat.
This what you need to concentrate on and focus on.
Save the hours and hard work in the gym if that’s all you want to do is lose body fat. It’s as simple as that.
In my three pillars of successful weight loss, exercise is the third and least important. Mindset is number 1, followed by nutrition, then exercise. Exercise and strength training are great for burning additional calories so you can eat more of what you love and has undeniable health benefits.
Trainers will place the importance of exercise a little too much when it comes to losing body fat because trainers fear that you won’t need them anymore. I used to do it all the time until I realized that the clients want results and the truth.
This truth, once you accept it, will set you free!
