Secrets to losing weight without gaining it back

This model is leaner and tighter.
Who cares what the scale says!!!

It's THAT time of year again. New Year's resolutions are the topic and the one I hear the most is
" I want to FINALLY lose weight this year".

A couple of things come to mind when I hear clients say this. Chances are this person has had a history of yo-yo dieting and they don't want to start over again and again.

Sadly, many peope use the scale to judge their self image. Weight loss= good day. Being up a pound or two could mean a bad day.

It really that cut and dried? Nope.. not at all. Our weight can fluctuate several times a day depending on water/food intake, depletion, hormones, or illness. This is no way to live. When the scale goes up or down it's a mental roller coaster that crushses self esteem and sets the pace for a never ending fight.

The number that is important is body fat percentage or pounds of body fat lost.

Muscle is dense and much more efficient than body fat. Muscle takes up less space and makes you look sexy and lean. Building lean muscle is critical to the overall goal of being lean and staying lean.

Dieting alone without strength training, can cause you to lose muscle. Yo-yo dieters typically will gain more fat and get bigger each time they diet.

Add strength training and cardio to burn body fat. Start a clean eating journey and watch your body become lean, strong and sexy.
Oh.. this years resolution.. change your mindset and vow to stay off the scale!
