You can thank Daylight Savings Time.

There are plenty of tips, hacks, and of course supplements that supposedly help with fat loss.

Unfortunately, the vast majority don’t do a damn thing—at least compared to the basics of calorie control, eating enough protein, resistance and cardiovascular exercise, sleep, and stress management.

Yet even the brilliant basics only work if you’re consistent with them, which is impossible if your lifestyle is a chaotic grease fire.

It all starts with a consistent lifestyle, specifically in terms of meal times, training times, AND sleep and wake times. These all make hitting the key targets easier cause it allows you to settle into a rhythm.

Step one is treating the weekends like an extension of the workweek, if possible. Those who do report feeling more rested Monday morning but also as having more stable energy levels, fewer cravings, and just sharper overall — which brings this ramble back to the Zombie thing.

If ever there was a weekend to be vigilant with sleep, it’s THIS weekend, where an hour of precious sleep will be taken from you for no good reason.

“Whats one hour?” Yeah right. Most say they feel the effects of this lost hour for weeks in terms of brain fog, mood, productivity and just otherwise feeling like a bag of smashed ass.

So don’t be like the millions who will stay up past 2am Saturday night, then get an extra kick to the junk and lose another hour of sleep due to Daylight Savings Time.

For sustainable, healthy fat loss, it’s always the basic lifestyle tweaks that are most effective.
