This is an issue that everyone struggles with at some time in life. Some people have an easier time losing weight than others. The common questions are: What do I need to eat? When do I eat? How much exercise should I take?
It isn’t easy to fully grasp and understand all the different ideas and techniques available. What is for sure is that unfortunately, there is no quick fix. Although some fad diets do expel weight fast, more often that not, when normal habits resume, the fat and weight resume with it!
After extensive study of the subject, I have concluded that the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) have hit the nail on the head with regard to physical activity :
“30 minutes, 5 days a week of moderate to intense activity will prevent significant weight gain and reduce the chance of chronic diseases such as heart attacks, diabetes and strokes.”
So, what happens if you do 60 minutes? Well, you gain even higher weight loss, less chance of weight regain and an even lower chance of developing chronic disease.
This, teamed up with a healthy balanced diet. is key!
We help fit this into your busy day and schedule, understanding that if it doesn’t. then it’s not going to work. The exercise also needs to be appropriate, with a mix of both aerobic and anaerobic work. The diet is developed through an initial food log of current habits and then gradual changes are introduced to ensure that the new habits formed and don’t just last two or three weeks but for a lifetime!
Weight and fat loss programs can be done through personal training or by attending boot camps.
