The topic of “eating clean for fat loss” always seems to come up. Yes if you eat clean (and by that I mean 100% quality food choices and also consistently for a lengthy period of time), fat loss can be a byproduct of your food selection.
For starters how do you know you’re not overeating your “clean” food choices? By simply choosing quality food sources, there is still no way to measure it in a quantitative manner. What about macros? How do you know if you’re eating enough protein sources? What about training output? That equation also comes into play. And then we can dig deeper to glycogen (carbs) replenishment. What about fats? This, too, is vital when it comes to hair, skin, neurological function and, YES, YOU NEED FATS FOR FAT LOSS.
In a perfect world, having an abundance of quality food sources COMBINED with calculated food measurements based on your present weight, your goals, your activity levels, and your dieting history is still the best (and most accurate) way to trigger fat loss.
So in a nutshell, by eating the RIGHT FOODS (in the CORRECT AMOUNTS) and combining it with EFFECTIVE and EFFICIENT WORKOUTS, you will be on your way to a tighter body.
