Weight loss is indeed a lifestyle and the earlier that information registers the better. A consistent healthy lifestyle will do more for us than any short term weight loss plan. The idea most fitness coach is want to incorporate in us is to build a relationship with being conscious of our health, fitness plans and eating lifestyle. Everything counts. Here is how to avoid the common mistakes and fix this! Here we go;
1. Don’t cut down your food intake
Incorporate a method. The issue here is we tend to want to change our lifestyle by eradicating every food types we’ve being eating. This will affect us in the long run and we might end up going back worse than before. To fix this; incorporate a method, a time table. You should plan for your weight loss a month or 2 back. This will give you time to consult with your doctor or nutritionist foods that you should take in or eliminate depending on the type of individual you are.
Then form a time table to know which food to eat for which day and stock your fridge so you are never out of supplies and that it will not cause you to run to the nearest fast food point to squander on calories. Plan your meals and eat accordingly. This will help you and you will have all the necessary nutrient your body requires.
2. Don’t go to the gym everyday
Another common mistake is the idea of going to the gym every day. This is not an effective way to lose weight, rather you will burn out and you will not perform well. It is better you arrange plans to work out, so have reserved energy.
You want your body to be repairing for every workout you do that is, giving it more time to restructure itself. If you wear it out with over training, you won’t perform better than you already have. Putting your body under intense pressure is not the right way to go. Plan with your trainer or yourself and structure times to head to the gym and stick to it.
3. Incorporate Leisure Periods
Most people are so busy that they don’t have time to do anything else apart from their work and rushing home to sleep. That circle is unhealthy. You have to apportion your time appropriately. Most of the time we rush through things is because we failed to finish up on time or were distracted by other thing to do our work effectively.
To have more leisure time that your body needs manage your time well, and have time to go for spa treatment, a walk by the beach, a dancing class, paint, photography sessions etc. anything that helps you unwind. Having this daily will help your mental state. If you succeed up there, the rest is history.
4. No Goals
A mistake most people make in the journey of weight loss is having no goals or setting unrealistic goals. Set goals that will match your time frame for losing weight and if you are not sure about it, ask your personal trainer or any gym instructor around your residence area to help you coordinate a time frame that they believe will be achievable and work hard towards it. If not, you would be one losing weight with no vision heading everywhere but nowhere in particular.
5. Lack of Motivation
The secret to effective weight loss is having motivation. Without it your weight loss process is futile. Why do you want to lose weight? Most people lose weight for the wrong reasons and when something happens to counter that shallow reason of theirs, they stop and go back to square 1.
The reason for wanting to lose weight should propel your entire weight loss process and wanting you to live a healthier lifestyle. Your reason or source of motivation is what will prompt or challenge you to live better. What is your reason for wanting to lose weight? Find it and stick to it.
