metabolism slows down and this, in turn, helps in weight gain.
Diet plans often remove certain important food products which are actually necessary for us in order to remain chemically balanced. My advice: don’t be extreme with your diet, everything in moderation.
A big diet pitfall is to motivate yourself to go to the gym and then give yourself carte-blanche to eat whatever you want afterwards. After all, you just put in a great workout, you ran, jumped, pushed, pressed, and sweat out of every pore. AVOID the mistake of thinking that the time you invest in the gym gives you a pass to slack off in other areas. Your diet is just as important as your exercise programme. It’s the complete package.
Gradually losing focus
So you have made a pact with yourself – you are going to do this. This time around, it is different. But then a few weeks in, what happens? You get tired and lose sight of the goal and why you started in the first place. Suddenly you stop counting calories and find excuses to skip the gym, and there are justifications to eat that serving of fries. Be very cautious about this type of thinking. It is very easy to fall asleep at the wheel of your weight-loss goals. Try to do whatever it takes to renew your focus on your weight-loss goals each day. Set new goals to keep focused.
There is so much bad weight-loss information out there that some people are just doomed, no fault of their own. Let’s cut to the core of what weight loss is all about once and for all: burning more calories than you take in. That’s it! That’s what weight loss boils down to.
Making short-term change
Some people think that making a pact with yourself to behave for a few weeks is sufficient to reach one’s ideal weight-loss goal. Then they are surprised, confused, and upset a month later when they’re right back where they started. Weight loss requires a permanent lifestyle change. Until you realise this and accept this, you may be like a hamster running in a wheel. You will basically use a lot of energy and never really get anywhere.
Setting unrealistic goals
In order to succeed, we must set ourselves up for success. Many people who want to lose weight want to lose it right away. That can be good motivation but also counterproductive. Wanting to lose weight quickly is an unrealistic approach to success. You want to lose 50 pounds as fast as possible – that’s great. But what happens when you realise it’s going to take a lot longer than just a few weeks to achieve this? You get demotivated. Having realistic goals isn’t fun. It’s much more fun to have pie-in-thesky goals like “I want to look good in a bikini in one week”. This is why so many fad diets exist. Ultimately, this approach does not lead to success.
Doing it alone
Let’s face it, we need a little help sometimes. As a trainer, I sometimes struggle through the same flux of motivation and feelings of unfulfilled fruitless efforts as the average gym goer. And it is for this reason that I capitalise on the tremendous benefits of working with a personal trainer.
