We're constantly bombarded with stories about weight, from size zero to the obesity 'epidemic'. But what is healthy is determined by different factors for each person. Here at Bailey's Health & Fitness we look at what you are currently eating and guide you to make small but powerful changes, that add up to lasting fat loss success.
We make sense of all that information you already know!
The key is to create a plan that provides plenty of enjoyable choices, avoid common eating pitfalls, and learn how to develop a healthier, more satisfying relationship with food. It's never too late to change your habits and by establishing a healthy lifestyle now, you'll continue to reap the rewards in the future.
Physical activity should also be a part of your lifestyle change if it’s not already. Physical activity was once an integral part of our daily lives, but now it is on a fast decline given today’s gadgets and technology.
We have domestic appliances to wash and dry for us, cars to get us from A to B and numerous games and leisure time activities which tie us to our sofas, chairs and desks. With the decline in manual labour, many of us spend our working day in sedentary and, in some cases, very stressful jobs.
Becoming fitter doesn't mean pushing yourself to the limits of your endurance and you don't have to be technically brilliant at a particular sport to enjoy pleasure and health benefits. Whoever you are, there's an activity for you. You may need some help to find it and that’s where my 4 Week Healthy Fat-Loss Programme can help.
In fact, mild to moderate physical activity is, for most people, the best way to better health. However, unless you do something you enjoy – or can at least put up with – you won't stick at it. Similarly, if you start off doing too much too soon, the pain far outweighs the benefits, so you'll get fed up and stop, get injured or even make yourself ill.
So what's the right amount of exercise to get fit and healthy without injuring yourself in the process? This question and many others like it, will be answered with you in mind once you start your 4 Week Healthy Fat-Loss Programme.
Your body composition is regularly monitored - aiming to lose 1 to 2 pounds a week to ensure healthy fat loss. Losing weight too fast can take a toll on your mind and body, making you feel sluggish, drained, and sick. When you drop a lot of weight quickly, you’re actually losing mostly water and possibly muscle rather than fat, which is very detrimental to a healthy successful loss.
Think lifestyle change, not short-term diet. Permanent fat loss is not something that a “quick-fix” diet can achieve. Instead, think about fat loss as a permanent lifestyle change, a commitment to your health for life. Various popular diets can help to jumpstart your weight loss, but permanent changes in your lifestyle and food choices are what will work in the long run.
A major study concluded that it doesn’t matter which eating plan you choose, as long as it is one that reduces your calorie intake and is healthy for your whole body. In other words, the best diet is the one you’ll stick to, not necessarily the one currently topping the bestseller list.
Here at Bailey's Health & Fitness we will support all eating plans so long as they are healthy to your mind and body, and we will gradually help you to change the habits and mental attitudes that have sabotaged your efforts in the past.
