In the world of wellness, you’ve likely encountered countless weight loss strategies, leaving you overwhelmed and unsure of the best path to take. But here’s the reality: shedding those extra pounds doesn’t have to be complicated. By embracing a few key principles, we can transform our bodies, melting away fat and sculpting lean muscle.
Why is sustainable weight loss such a challenging goal despite it being such a common pursuit. Could it be due to the overconsumption of hyperpalatable foods, inadequate protein intake, underestimating calorie intake, or simply neglecting calorie awareness altogether? Today’s episode has the answers you’ve been looking for.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Max Lugavere to discuss all things weight loss and what Max did to lose 10 lbs of fat in just two months while continuing to build lean muscle. Dhru and Max talk about prioritizing protein at every meal, especially breakfast and how overeating ultra-processed foods (even “healthy” junk foods) can easily lead to weight gain.
They also discuss the importance of emphasizing leaner cuts of animal protein, the importance of fiber, satiety-per-calorie, cooking at home, and how to honor your weight loss goals even when you’re on the road with few options.
