Why you aren’t losing weight and what you can do about it.

by | Mar 2, 2023 | Uncategorized

When it comes to getting results with your health and fitness being consistent is the key.

Regardless of what your health and fitness goal may be, I can guarantee you won’t get there if you are inconsistent with your exercise and daily eating habits. Over the last 12 years I have trained well over a thousand local people so I have seen what works and what doesn’t. If you are someone who has a goal of losing weight, below are some of my best tips to help you drop those unwanted kilograms and get you in the best shape of your life.

Exercise more days than you don’t

Over the years I have found that most people will generally eat better and have a better all-round routine on the days where they are exercising. So, try to make it your number one habit, to be someone who exercises very regularly.

Find Exercise that you actually enjoy

The best exercise programs are the ones that you can actually stick to, so go do something that you enjoy. That way you will be much more likely to stick to something long term. Think outside the box and make it fun, exercise shouldn’t be a chore. Play a sport, take a dance class, join a group training session or go for a bush walk. Anything will work, just do it consistently!

Short workouts work

In 2021 we are all getting busier and busier, so take the pressure off yourself. If you can only spare 10-20 mins for a workout, that is plenty. Just do something and keep the habit going.

Focus on better nutritional habits

Please don’t get caught up in jumping from diet to diet, the reason you have gained weight in the past or haven’t managed to drop that excess body fat, is not because you haven’t found the miracle diet you are looking for. It is because somewhere along the line, life got in the way and your daily habits got out of whack. Focus on building a healthy routine that fits in with your busy lifestyle.

Get the basics right more often than not

When it comes to nutrition, I am a big believer of getting the basics right. Eating a well-balanced diet does not need to be complicated, try and eat more fresh fruits and vegetables, drink more water, eat foods high in protein and minimise the “treat” type foods.

Above all you are consuming too many calories

At the end of the day you won’t be able to lose body fat if you are eating too many calories. This is why it is important to reduce (not cut out) the “treat” type foods that you may be eating too much of. Instead aim to eat more filling lower calorie options eg. Vegetables, quality sources of carbohydrates for energy and lean cuts of meat.

To sum it all up, try not to overcomplicate things. The best plans are often the simplest, create yourself a workable plan of action so that you can stick to it long term. I guarantee you the results will come, you just need to be patient.
