OK so you’re exercising like crazy, at first you saw results but now you don’t seem to be losing any body fat…
What is going on? Why can someone else lose it so easily but you struggle? First and foremost don’t complicate matters, fat loss is not rocket science and if you do too much research you may very well get lost and confused in the contradictory world of nutrition and health.
Do not give up, I’ve listed a few tips below to help get you back on track and if you need additional assistance that is what I’m here for! Remember this should be a way of life, not a short term fix!
Be a food detective, and investigate what you choose to put into your body. Check labels, and avoid ingredients such as sugar, trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, and long “chemical names” that are hard to pronounce. The healthiest foods are those found just as nature intended – whole and unprocessed. When was the last time you saw an ingredient list on a stalk of broccoli or a fresh fillet of salmon?
It’s imperative for you to keep exercising!
Exercise has enormous benefits for your mind and body with research boasting decreased body weight, smaller waist circumference, lower resting heart rate and blood pressure, AND it boosts your mood! Strive to be active at least 30 minutes every day to help keep your body strong and lean. It doesn’t have to be expensive – any movement is better than none. And guess what!? Your metabolism stays boosted for up to 15 hours after you exercise, turning you into a fuel burning furnace.
Remember that there is no secret to weight loss; it’s about sticking to your plan, knowing what a healthy plan consists of, being motivated and being held accountable for your goals! It is important to recognize the concept of bio-individuality, the idea that each of us has unique food and lifestyle needs. One person’s food is another person’s poison. It’s crucial to explore and learn what works best for you.
The above steps will help get you back on track! Sweat hard, and watch it come off.
