Eating to lose fat means eating clean, whole foods that nourish your bod and watching those pesky portion sizes. You can still over eat on healthy foods, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a little treat while shedding the pounds!

2. Strength Train
No your legs won’t get bigger and bulkier! Strength training increases your metabolism and shapes your muscles so once the fat is burned you will be left with lean, toned gams. Need some strength training ideas beyond your typical squats and lunges?

3. Get out there and walk, run, hike or just plain move!
You don’t have to be doing hours of cardio, but you need to be moving more than going to class twice a week. Being active burns extra calories and can really ramp up your weight loss efforts! 10,000 steps a day is what experts recommend – so get steppin’!
