Everyone has been there… trying to lose fat!

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.
