It’s not all about calories nor is it all about insulin, however they both play an important role in fat loss.
Ultimately, a calorie deficit is required to lose fat, but there are ways to make being in that deficit easier for you and more effective. Controlling insulin levels, managing macros as well as things like building muscle and movement are some of those tools.
Insulin doesn’t just dictate fat storage, it also has a role in how hungry you are, your stress levels, your mental state and the list goes on. So it’s important to control these levels for fat loss, but also for overall health.
Eating foods that are high in sugar and carbs without the presence of fibre, fat, protein and other phytonutrients is a sure fire way to sky rocket your insulin.
Stay away from processed foods, refined grains, refined sugar and sugary drinks and focus on eating only whole foods. This is by far the best way to control insulin levels and succeed at losing weight.

😬👏🏼 FIRST WORKOUT VID 😬👏🏼 some clips from mine and @laurenstopp_ s upper body workout today! ➡️SWIPE TO SEE EACH EXERCISE
We done two mini circuits (a great way to train when training with a friend as instead of waiting for the other to finish you can do an exercise each then switch 👏🏼) • circuit one X 15 plate raise rotations X12 (per arm) one arm dumbell row X12 (per arm) front raise in to hammer curl. 🙏🏼 do each exercise back to back and repeat the circuit 3 times 🙏🏼 •circuit two X12 cable straight arm pull downs X12 face pulls 💪🏼 again do each exercise back to back and repeat the circuit 3 times 💪🏼 we finished with the rower for a full body burn 👏🏼. Tag your workout bud and save this video and try next time you’re in the gym 💪🏼
1st run of the week : 10k !
I went outside because the weather is surprisingly good for this time of the year. I was aiming for a faster 🏃♀️. I guess I felt overconfident because of my “success” during my first half. But It’s been 2 weeks, maybe a little more without proper training and I think I am paying it now. I’m still ok with my run, 10k, nonstop and outside so a good start. 2 more run planned for this week ... see you soon ;)
Back in August 2017 i started my diet. I did a solid 4 Months straight of dieting and exercise. 💪🏼🍌🍳 Unfortunately, i stopped and therefore gained weight. It is now October 2018, and i am starting my diet again. However this time, i intend to stick to it. 🤦🏻♀️ This photo is from last year.
