Is it even possible? Of course. By eating more than what you are currently eating, you might be able to lose fat.
This article won't act as a miracle solution. I won't tell you to eat a shit ton of sugar and still lose body fat, that would be amazing wouldn't it? I will only give you few tips on what you can do to lose more fat while eating (maybe) more.
Understanding how the metabolism works is very important. Basically, your metabolism rate is the number of calories you burn in a day by only existing.
Can you increase that number? Absolutely! Easy ways to increase the metabolism : High intensity training, put more muscles mass, eat lots of proteins (especially for breakfast), drink lot of water, etc.
When you train, you mainly use the energy you have stocked in previously. What a lot of people don't know is that calorie rhymes with energy (no seriously : calories means energy for the body). When people are looking to grow their muscles, they are told to eat more calories (especially carbohydrates, so they can store more glucose in their muscles). The big problem is : most of the time, we are too full to eat as much food as we are supposed to. A good way to make place in your belly is to burn calories during your training. By burning lots of calories, you are going to have place for more. So, focus on burning lots of calories in your training.
In the same order of ideas, when someone wants to burn fat, they have to burn more calories than they are eating. That's why they are told to eat less and do high intensity training (HIIT). By emptying their glucose storage, the next carbohydrates they are going to eat will go in the muscles, and will not all be transform in fat.
A very important thing to look for in your diet is your protein and carbohydrates consumption. More than 50% of women would lose fat by increasing their protein consumption (more meat) and reduce their carbohydrates consumption (less pasta).
Stop following the common mistake of eating 60% carbs, 30% proteins and 10% fat. If you don't deserve carbs, you don't eat them. In order to deserve them, your body fat has to be low (not more than 18% for woman and 12% for man). The real quantity should be : 60% proteins, 30%carbs and 10%. Of course, the number can change depending of the goal and the metabolism of the person.
The day you are going to deserve your carbs is the day you are going to be able to eat a lot of food and still lose fat. You are also going to be able to increase your sugar intake! Work hard, it's going to pay later.
