Here are 6 steps to make sure you stay on track and have a healthy, progress filled 2018:
1. Adherence is essential
If you can’t adhere to a way a training and eating then you will become inconsistent and not be successful in your journey. I could give you the perfect training and nutrition program to get you the best physique in the shortest possible time, but if that program is not enjoyable to you, doesn’t fit round your current lifestyle and requires too many major sacrifices then we will see not be successful.
2. Don’t Jump straight in the deep end
We want to make sure we keep all the various weight loss tools in your tool box until we need them. Changing lifestyle habits one at a time so you have time to adapt to each one individually will the best way forward. There are no quick fixes, simple as that. Be patient and realise it should be lifestyle changes and creating new habits over a prolonged, consistent period that will get results.
3. Avoid any “diets”
A diet implies a way of eating in the short term. We want to change our relationship with food in a timely manner so it becomes second nature to pick out the best choices when doing our shopping.
4. Don’t compare yourself to others
Looking through Instagram or magazines to find the perfect body to look like when in fact that person is not you can be self-destructive. Yes, be inspired by these people, but be inspired by their work ethic and the way they approach health and fitness and not to aim to look like them. You are trying to be the best version of yourself, and getting caught up with comparing yourself to others can sometimes be a recipe for failure.
5. Don’t try what you tried last year and failed at
Year after year we see people doing the same thing with their training and nutrition and expecting different results! There is a reason people fail, so why take the same steps to most likely end up failing again…? And that leads me nicely to the last point….
6. Go get help
If you have no idea where to start then go seek advice from someone who will consider all these factors when designing a training and nutrition program for you. It is not one size fits all!
