About a year ago I had a woman named Anne come see me because she wanted to know how to lose fat.
She was a mom with a busy family-life and career and didn’t have much time to spend working
She wasn’t out to hire me as her personal trainer, rather she wanted me to design a fat loss
program where she could do all the workouts from home and that didn’t take much time.
She was in luck because this was my favorite type of fat loss workout program to
However, before Anne left my office, we also talked some more about how to lose fat and how that differed for a busy mom as opposed
to a dad or someone without kids or someone who had more time to devote to fat loss workouts.
Not many people realize this, but answering the ‘how to lose fat’ question does differ for busy moms and
Moms need to schedule some alone time. It doesn’t need to be a lot
of alone time, just enough to get your workout done and get a little sanity break. I understand that you have
things to do or that you want to spend time with your family, but when it comes to how to lose fat and succeeding
with losing fat, you need to get that alone time in, otherwise your fat loss workout won’t get done.
So, shut your bedroom or home gym door, turn on some music or your favorite TV show and get
your fat loss workout done.
The next step you need to focus on when it comes to ‘how to lose fat’ is you
need to steer clear of the needless exercises. By that I mean you should stay away from
the isolation moves like triceps kickbacks, hip abductor/adductor moves (thigh master movements) and endless
amounts of crunches and cardio.
Those exercises are fine, but they really don’t help you lose weight and get a toned, sexy
body because they require a lot of workout time in order to really and truly work and there are better, more
time-efficient ways to spend your workout time. They’re largely wastes of time when time is of the
You also need to spend some time and focus on healthy, on-the-go snacks that will help you lose
fat rather than gain it.
You’re on the go a lot and that often means you either forgo eating until you get so hungry
you splurge on something, or you graze on unhealthy snacks that are there for the taking.
Get over both of those situations by preparing portable snacks that will help you lose fat.
Snacks like almonds, apples, pears, peanuts, protein bars, etc. Things that travel easily and don’t make much of a
mess, and most importantly help you lose fat.
Fat loss for moms really comes down to maximizing the time you have and doing the most you
can with it.
As you can see, what I recommended to Anne wasn’t Rocket Science, or some whacko fad diet. It
was common sense advice that could be implemented by any mom, all she needed to do was do it.
And she did and she lost over 15 pounds in the first 6
