How can I get rid of my fat? This one of the most common questions my clients ask me. Everyone has a trouble area or extra pounds in unwanted places. Most people try to detox the fat away or start a new diet of low carbs. Although these methods will help you retain less fat they will also make you lose muscle mass. How many times have you lost 10 pounds only to gain it back after a vacation? The reason for this is you don’t have enough muscle mass to burn the excess calories after you stop dieting. Weight loss strictly through dieting does not work!
If your goal is to get lean, you need to take in more fuel. If you’re looking to lose weight, you have to take in the right kind of fuel. If you don’t eat enough of the right stuff, your body will have to take energy from your muscles, which hurts your metabolism. Don’t waste time crash dieting, instead lets create a balanced eating plan that compliments your body. The truth is you have to look in the mirror and be honest with yourself. You have to dig deep and decide to do it the right way. It takes a consistent exercise program along with healthy eating to achieve your body goals.
The first thing to determine is your starting point. Your workout should be designed to not only burn calories but also build muscle. Whether you are sedentary or do moderate exercise it helps to be reevaluated by a professional. Personal training gives you the consistency and accountability for those moments when life gets crazy. I have seen huge success teaching people the basics of resistance training and making it fun! The techniques can be used for a lifetime to maintain the body type you want for yourself. Results can be seen in the first 30 days. While you move toward your goal you will celebrate the little achievements and be proud of yourself for being proactive about your health. When you feel great and your pants start to fit looser it becomes easier to stay the course.
