We have been in the weight loss/ weight gain profession for over 10 years and the ideas presented here are not a ‘magic pill’. We will help you manage your nutritional intake, calorie burning, & fitness plan.
We are going to keep this simple, so here are three things that need to be accomplished...
1. Plan of attack
Remember that making healthy food choices goes a long way in maintaining your fitness plan. Do not deprive yourself of the pies, cakes or whatever it is you most enjoy; just remember to have a small portion in combination with healthy foods. Portioning is important. Sometimes just a taste is satisfying.
2. Anticipate setbacks
Remember you cannot always be as strong as you would like all of the time. You need to anticipate this. Do not get down on yourself and give up if (or, more likely, when) you overindulge. Just know this may happen and get back to the plan of eating healthy and controlling your portions. If it is Monday, and you remember that Friday is a party, you may want to make an extra effort to eat healthy the whole week.
3. Maintaining progress
You do this by continuing your workouts. You may want to put more time in for cardio. That means if you usually bike three times a week for 30 minutes, you may want to increase the bike time to 40 minutes and add a fourth day. You can also add to that by parking farther away during shopping.
These are just a few simple things to think about. Remember, enjoyment not engorgement.
And remember when it comes to weight loss, or any other healthy endeavor, there is no other place to be but here at Active Body & Health.
