    124: Fat Loss: The WHAT, the HOW, and the WHY. You’re asking the wrong questions.

    When it comes to fat loss, most of what’s discussed on social media or asked in Q&As are these “WHAT” questions
    What are your calories?
    What calculator should you use?
    What is your protein target?
    What is your goal weight?
    A lot of the questions are about numbers…
    And I’m not saying those questions don’t matter. They absolutely do. If you’re gonna track your calories you do need to pick where you’re gonna start. I get it. It’s just that these questions are getting more attention than they deserve.
    This podcast discusses these “WHAT” questions and how it is probably more important to spend time on the HOW and the WHY if you want to make real, lasting behavior change (which is what is required).
