We always hear about exercise when it comes to fat loss, but what about food? Losing weight is done mainly in the kitchen, so that’s the best place to start to see fast changes.

The idea of counting calories isn’t a task that typically appeals to any of us, and more often than not it leads to poor long-term results. However, there is some gold dust in knowing what your food contains and whether or not you’re eating more than you need to. Ultimately, fat loss is about creating a calorie deficit, i.e. feeding your body less calories (energy) than it’s burning. At a basic level, there are 3,500 calories in one pound of fat, so if you create a 500-calorie deficit a day, then you can expect to lose around one pound a week. The quality of the calories is equally important and that’s what our suggested fat-burning food swaps take into account.

Start by incorporating these healthy substitutions into your everyday life and the balance will start to tip very favorably towards your toned, beach-bod scale.
