Do you ‘REALLY’ want to lose fat?

Lots of people say they want to lose fat but some don’t really understand what it requires.

The majority of us personal trainers try to accommodate clients with enjoyable and exciting dietary information and guidance, more so now than ever before. Rice, chicken and broccoli isn’t the top meal we offer clients these days (although nothing wrong with it).

Saying that, just because there is more information about nutrition and more variety in diets, it doesn’t mean that you can half a#$ it. If you do, then you can expect half a#$ results. 

You still need to commit to the programme you are following and adhere to it. 

You should expect there to be difficult times during your fat loss journey. You will have to give up certain foods you enjoy and reduce others. You will have to try new foods and break bad habits while creating new ones.

Don’t be scared of change!

No one in the world can make you lose fat if you don’t want to.

It’s your choice, your health, your life!!

What holds you back from fat loss?

There are a number of aspects that can hold you back from fat loss but here are 3 common struggles: 

1) Environment – If the house is full of junk food then you are more likely to give into temptation. Likewise, if you work in an office, Friday might be the day for ordering in takeaway – this can be challenging.

Solutions: Create a better environment. This could be throwing out all junk food or eating with colleagues who are also on a diet. Word of warning though, not everyone who is on a ‘diet’ will be as committed as you, so be wary. 

2) Friends / Family – This is a tricky one to tell people. Not all people close to you will have your best interests at heart. If your friends are always eating out, you are more likely to. The mentality of ‘just have a wee bit’ really triggers me.

Solutions: Tell the people around you how important the goal is to you. Distance yourself from negative people and surround yourself with people more like minded and supportive.

3) Lack of Confidence- A lot of people lack confidence and are scared of getting judged. The truth is you will get judged no matter what you do. Health is the most important thing in life, you have nothing without it. 

Solutions: Create really small goals to help build confidence. Read self help books. Get a professional to help you i.e. personal trainer or try to start training with a friend.
