Your ex­pert-ap­proved road map to weight loss suc­cess

Whether you’re at the tail end of a long weight-loss jour­ney or just want to drop a jeans size, a small num­ber of ki­los can be harder to shake than seag­ulls around fries. “If you’ve been do­ing the same thing day in, day out for months, your body can just stop re­spond­ing,” says celebrity trainer Te­gan Hain­ing. “Or if a few ki­los is all you have to lose, you may need to look at out­side-the-norm fac­tors, like sleep and hor­mones.” Di­eti­cian Chloe McLeod adds that at this stage, “it’s of­ten just small [life­style] ad­just­ments needed, so it can feel dif­fi­cult be­cause it’s harder to iden­tify them.” Also on the list of po­ten­tial ob­sta­cles? A mo­ti­va­tion nose­dive when you’re busy, stressed or have hit a plateau. Or per­haps you’ve seen re­sults from your ef­forts, en­joyed the feed­back, but then re­laxed a bit too much. What­ever’s go­ing on, “con­sis­tency in healthy choices day to day is go­ing to get the best re­sults long term,” says McLeod. As en­thu­si­as­tic all-staff emails of­ten pro­claim, team­work makes the dream work. That’s why we’ve en­listed an ex­pert sup­port squad to get you back on track. Here’s how they help clients shift those last few stub­born ki­los – and stay healthy and happy for life.
