Cherry Hill Personal Trainer Quick Tip

How Do You Know If You’re Losing Fat?


Almost everyone would like to lose some weight, but is it the number on the scale you want to lose or body fat?

How do you know if you’re actually losing body fat?

Cherry Hill Personal Trainer Tip #1

You’re consistently losing a pound or two a week – It’s physically impossible to lose or gain 5 pounds of fat or muscle in a day. To lose one pound of fat you should be in a 3500 calories deficit each week. This will ensure optimal fat burning without sacrificing lean muscle.

Cherry Hill Personal Trainer Tip #2

Take Measurements – taking body girth measurements each month can really show your fat burning progress. If your biggest losses are in the areas with the most body fat (ex. Abdomen, hips, waist, thighs) then you know you’re on the right track.

Cherry Hill Personal Trainer Tip #3

Electronic Body Fat or Caliper Testing – the best way to ensure your primarily losing body fat is testing electronically or with calipers. These tools will give you the most cost effective body fat readings and keep you on the right track. If you’re unfamiliar with these tools your best choice is to have a professional personal trainer test your body fat for you and ensure the readings are accurate!
