There is a little check list in my head for fat loss.... it's like a cartoon factory I imagine.
Calories go in one door and out another travelling along on a conveyor belt inside the factory. If too many calories go in they get blocked up on the conveyor belt and have to be stored inside the factory in storage areas. Exercise makes the conveyor belt move along, it stops if you don't move much. Fiber is needed for the calories to stick to on the coveyor belt. Water is needed for the conveyor belt to float along on. They conveyor belt also only moves when you are asleep.
So a simple momentary assessment is as easy as checking off the fingers on one hand:
1. Did I consume LESS CALORIES going in than out?
2. Did I EXERCISE to keep them moving?
3. Was there FIBER to bind them to?
4. And WATER to move them along?
5. And enough SLEEP for the processing time?
This little picture has been in my head for years - it's great to see what spark people promotes compares well.
