Stefi Cohen Daily Nutrition Tips for Cutting
- Caloric deficit is a must
Stefi Cohen starts the video by explaining the most basic understanding of losing weight: caloric deficit.
To lose weight, you need to spend more energy (calories) than you are consuming.
Reference back to the scale to know if what you’re doing is working. “If not, if the scale is not moving, you have to reduce your calorie intake or increase the amount of exercise that you do in a day,” Stefi Cohen says.
- Choose a diet that fits your lifestyle and food preferences
It is better to make a diet suit you than the other way around. Maintaining consistency on your diet will get you a long way and it would be easier than simply choosing randomly a diet that will force you to drastically change what you like.
- What can you do to stay in a calorie deficit?
“Walk more, eat protein with all of your meals, drink enough water, be okay with being hungry,” Stefi Cohen explains. “And change the way that your kitchen is arranged so that you don’t have the temptation or the easiness of reaching out to those things that are likely to tip you off and take you out of being in a calorie deficit.”

Shredded chicken with soy sauce, zucchini. “And for carbs, we’re gonna have some sweet potatoes.” She also added a couple of hard-boiled eggs to increase the amount of fat in the meal “because the chicken breast doesn’t have much.”
She consumes between 20-30 per cent of her daily calorie intake in the form of fats for performance and health benefits.
