Weight Loss Los Angeles

How do I achieve weight loss?

You experience weight loss by creating a calorie deficit. Depending on the size of your calorie deficit, macronutrient intake (protein, fat, and carbohydrate), and exercise technique determines if you will lose weight (muscle, fat, water) or maintain your muscle and lose body fat only.

Depending on your goal, NutritionX Los Angeles designs a program unique to your body type to maximize your fat-weight loss results.

Do I have to workout to lose weight?

No, you do not, but you are 99.999999 percent of the time experiencing weight loss (muscle, fat, and water), which will eventually lower the metabolism. This translates to being a prime candidate for a rebound in weight.

The majority of weight loss programs in Los Angeles and nation wide do not educate you on exact science of weight loss vs. fat loss. NutritionX Los Angeles gives you the information, education, and motivation to guide you through this dynamic process.

What’s the safest way to loss weight?

This is a tough question. If you are over weight, and running the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, or high blood pressure just losing weight, regardless if the weight is some muscle, will help improve your risk factors.

With that said, continuing to cut your calories extremely low for long periods of time, and losing large amount of muscle mass may lower your immunity, and be inept of essential nutrients needed for health. There is a fine line.

Most diets are safe that do not leave out whole food groups. As long as you consume as much fresh foods as possible, fruits, vegetables, tubers,  essential fatty acids, and exercise, you are probably improving your health.

Your body is great at adapting, depending on how lean you want to be, eventually, you will have to adopt a scientific approach in order to continue to see results.

How do I lose only body fat?

You lose only body fat, by consuming the appropriate amount of calories, protein, fat, and carbohydrate for your body type, weight training consistently, performing aerobic/anaerobic exercise and keeping accurate food records.

Plus, monitoring your progress with someone experienced with body fat calipers, hydrostatic weighing, or Dexa body fat testing to accurately track your progress.

And, a never give up attitude.

Why is there so much confusion about weight loss?

Nutrition science primarily has to do with the nutrients that are essential for health, the role of nutrition and disease,  the break down,  assimilation, and elimination of foods.

Exercise physiology is primarily the study of  the role the heart, lungs, nervous, muscular, energy, and skeletal systems respond to exercise.

All diets and exercise programs work to an extent. The weight loss/fat loss industry is a multi billion-dollar industry, which lends to a multitude of choices and opinion.

Much of the confusion is not done purposefully. Strict Fat loss is not taught in school. All diets work on some level, it is the “experts” speaking in absolutes that contribute to the confusion.

What if I want to build muscle and lose fat simultaneously?

This is a question men ask a lot. There are always exceptions, but to experience weight loss/body fat your calories have to be under what it takes to maintain your individual weight. To gain significant amounts of muscle your calories must be over what is takes to maintain your weight.

It is advisable to focus whole-heartedly on one or the other for optimal results.

NutritionX Los Angeles works with you to first help clarify your goals, sets a program in place designed for your body type, then closely monitors and tracks your progress.

Fat loss requires patience. Losing only body fat, will not produce the dramatic numbers on the scale right away.
