Hey there…I hope your new year has been going great and if you made a resolution to work out, you have been.
You’ve scoured the internet and book stores for fitness plans, maybe even contracted with a personal trainer to help get on track at the gym….just remember though, it’s 80% diet and 20% exercise. You can NOT exercise away a bad diet.
And not everything you read applies to YOU…
So what to do? You think you should eat less but you’re hungry because you’re spending so much time on the treadmill and doing cardio…because that’s what you read would help with weight loss.
Yes, cardio is good for you…in moderation. However, cardio WILL make you hungry.
Lifting weights will build muscle, which will improve your metabolism, which will burn more fat…and you will be hungry but not ravenous like you will be with cardio.
But you’ve read all that before, right?
So what’s up with all this information available to you??? What they aren’t telling you is that these are generalized comments and suggestions. Generalized for a healthy individual who doesn’t have more than 10 – 20 pounds to lose.
If you are like the majority of us out there, a 20lb loss is just the beginning of your journey….and some of these plans simply will not work long term for you.
YOU are unique. your metabolism is yours and yours alone. Carbs might rev it up…they might also slow it to a crawl.
YOU are unique as an individual…there is a reason you’re over eating or not exercising. You might know the reason, or you may not. But until that reason is addressed and old habits are changed, YOU will not change, regardless of the plan you decide to follow.
