Increase protein intake– Protein supports muscle synthesis to increase lean body mass, recovery and improves metabolic rate. This should be implemented as part of a healthy diet overhaul.
Slowly lower daily caloric intake – This will prevent metabolic crashes and weight loss plateauing.
Sleep enough – Sleep deprivation has a system-wide effect on all aspects of health. Fat storage is enhanced as stress hormone rises.
Eliminate alcohol consumption or consume in extreme moderation – Your liver is critical in metabolic processes and booze hits it hard. Not to mention that it is notorious for causing belly fat accumulation, decreasing muscle definition, and delivering empty calories.
