SO here is the scenario, you have your workout routines, you are putting in a huge effort. You are mixing up your classes so that you are getting a good combination of cardio and resistance training, and you are pushing yourself to 80-90 per cent effort level every time.
So why aren’t you getting results with your weight loss goals?
One of the most common problems I encounter with new clients is that often they are misguided about food, confused about healthy food options, how much they should eat, and most importantly how often they should eat. The truth of the matter is, if you are expecting your body to perform and function like a finely tuned machine, you have to treat it like one.
How many meals in a day?
You should be aiming for five/six, broken down into three meals and two/three snacks.
Do you skip breakfast?
One of the biggest and most common mistakes, as breakfast is probably the most important meal of the day.
Are you eating a heavy meal late in the evening?
Where possible, you should aim to eat your main meal at lunchtime and have a lighter meal in the evening. You should avoid going to bed with a full stomach. Your metabolism naturally slows down as you rest. You need at least two to three hours to digest your food before sleep. It is never too late to improve your eating habits if you find you are not losing weight with your current routine, it is maybe time to look at other methods.
Remember Rome was not built in a day, it takes up to three weeks to break a habit and sometimes a little longer to get used to a new routine.
