Vikki added on her Instagram: ‘The easiest way to lose fat is through NEAT – Non-Sport Activity Thermogenesis.
This means that energy is spent on everything we do not sleep, eat or exercise.
Normal daily movement requires energy, so without endless intense bouts of exercise we can still move and burn calories without exhausting ourselves.
“It’s strange that people don’t prioritize their steps in their fat loss journey.”
The fitness trainer (pictured) also shared her other tips for reaching your weight loss goal, including being in the 10-25% calorie range with your food, or eating less than you burn.
The fitness instructor said there are five more things that will help you reach your weight loss goals quickly, and the first of them is related to what you eat.
“Be in a calorie deficit of 10-25 percent with your food, which means eating fewer calories than you burn,” Vicki said.
You should also eat between 100 and 120 grams of protein each day. Good sources of protein include lean meats, eggs, fish, yogurt and dairy products.
Finally, Vicki said it’s a good idea to do some resistance training — which involves using your own body weight or dumbbells — between three and five times a week.
“Prioritize consistency,” Vicki added.
Complete a consistent training routine each week to increase muscle, improve posture and stability, and reduce chances of injury.
Vikki (pictured) previously revealed what she eats in a day to meet her protein goals, including high-protein yogurt, scrambled eggs and avocado on toast.
Vikki has built a large following on social media for her fitness tips and tricks.
Previously, she revealed what she eats in a day to meet her protein goals, including high-protein yogurt, scrambled eggs, avocado on toast, smoked salmon, rice, beans, and chicken burger with corn on the cob.
“Before a workout, I always eat carbohydrates to fuel this workout, which gives me the raw energy to perform good reps with a good weight,” Vicki writes.
“After your workout, carbohydrates will ensure that your expended glycogen stores are replenished within your muscles.”
The PT also always includes protein before a workout to make sure her muscles are primed and “ready for action.”
“After a workout, protein is good because it will help grow and repair your trained muscles,” Vicki said.
“Try to consume protein within 30-60 minutes of your workout for an extra growth aid.”
