2. Find your inner motivation
No one else can make you lose weight. You must undertake diet and exercise changes to please yourself.  Make a list of what's important to you to help stay motivated and focused, whether it's an upcoming beach vacation or better overall health.

3. Set realistic goals
It may seem obvious to set realistic weight-loss goals. But do you really know what's realistic? Over the long term, it's best to aim for losing 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kilogram) a week.

4. Enjoy healthier foods

Adopting a new eating style that promotes weight loss must include lowering your total calorie intake. But decreasing calories need not mean giving up taste, satisfaction or even ease of meal preparation. One way you can lower your calorie intake is by eating more plant-based foods — fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

5. Get active, stay active

Exercise can help burn off the excess calories you can't cut through diet alone. Exercise also offers numerous health benefits, including boosting your mood, strengthening your cardiovascular system and reducing your blood pressure.

6. Change your perspective

It's not enough to eat healthy foods and exercise for only a few weeks or even months if you want long-term, successful weight loss. These habits must become a way of life. Lifestyle changes start with taking an honest look at your eating patterns and daily routine.

Remember that you're planning to change your life. It won't happen all at once. Stick to your healthy lifestyle and the results will be worth it.

6 Reasons You're Not Losing Weight:

1. You Don't Drink Enough Water
H2O helps to suppress appetite, so you're less likely to overeat. But that's not all: When you're dehydrated, your kidneys can't function properly, so the body turns to the liver for additional support. Because the liver is working so hard, more of the fat you consume is stored rather than burned off.

2. You Skimp on Protein
High-protein diets result in more pounds shed, protein enhances the feeling of satiety and prevents you losing muscle as you lose fat. Higher-protein diets make you burn slightly more calories, as your body expends more energy to metabolise protein than carbs or fat.

3. You Sit at a Desk All Day
Sitting for just a few hours causes your body to stop making a fat-inhibiting enzyme called lipase. Getting up and walking for just two minutes during each of those hours burns an additional 59 calories a day.

4. Your Numbers Are Off
Find out your Basal Metabolic Rate - BMR (the amount of calories you need, to maintain my weight), and enter an activity level accordingly. REMEMBER the BMR calculator already factors in the calories you burn with your workouts, so you shouldn't add them in again!!!

5. You Work Out Regularly
People tend to eat more when they work out, either because they feel they've earned it or because they're overestimating how much they've burned — or both.Working out can make you retain water - to ensure that you don't get dehydrated, the plasma in your bloodstream will store an extra 2 to 4 pounds of water. You'll always carry that extra water unless you become inactive; it's not fat or muscle, but simply superhydration - it's a good thing.

6. You're a Stress Case
The stress hormone cortisol triggers the appetite stimulant, increasing cravings for carbohydrates. Too much cortisol also slows metabolism. Even worse, excessive stress causes fat to be stored in the abdominal area! BUT there is a solution (HURRAY) - e>xercise reduces stress! Balanced, nutritious meals can repair the damage that stress does to the body, and a social support network also helps

How to find a good personal trainer in Brighton and Hove?

Have you ever wondered if you need a Personal Trainer?

Well, personal trainers aren't for everyone, BUT a trainer provides certain benefits that you can't find when working out on your own.

PT

Here are some reasons a personal trainer may be right for you:

1. Motivation
Certified PT can provide structure and accountability, and help you develop a lifestyle that encourages health.

2. Individualised programme
Training for a Brighton Half-marathon or Brighton Marathon? No matter what your goal is, a trainer will work with you to plan a safe, efficient programme that considers your needs and enable you to reach your health goals.

3. Efficiency
PT helps you focus on results and stop wasting your time doing inefficient workouts. A PT has a plan and will help you get maximum results in minimum time.

4. Improve technical skills
The right PT will help you improve your skill by showing you new training techniques, and how to do them correctly.

5. You are new to exercise
If you are an absolute beginner, a PT is the ultimate fitness coach. A good trainer will introduce you to a very simple, effective routine.

6. Break through plateaus
Ok, you are already in pretty decent shape, but you've been there for years. If you are stuck in the same routine and want to break out of a rut, a PT is the perfect solution.

7. Workout Safely
A PT watches your form, monitors your vitals and can provide objective feedback about your limits and strengths. Your PT can help to push you or slow you down as necessary.

8. Weight Loss
There is a good reason that the number one reason people hire personal trainers is to lose weight and get into shape AND it works. If you made a resolution to lose the fat and build the muscle, a trainer can keep you on track and help you realise that goal.

What stops people from starting exercising?

Personal_Training_Ladyonball

Overall, most people in the United Kingdom (Brighton and Hove included) are aware that following a healthier lifestyle will lead to a longer healthier life. However, moving to a healthier lifestyle can be more difficult than you think. There are many “barriers” in the modern world some within your control and some not.

Examples include:

In the same way as you would purchase a car, you would get it checked first and make sure it is roadworthy and safe to take to the road.  The same applies to you.  In order to move towards a healthier lifestyle it is advisable to make sure that your current health, exercise and eating behaviours and habits are assessed first before you embark on a training programme.  A consultation encourages dialogue about your current activity and where you want to be.  The results of the consultation will be your compass and regular review will help you stay on track and be modified according to your needs, knowledge and time.  It’s a great motivator to see improvements along the way, these improvements keep you going.

A one hour consultation is offered to every client in Brighton and Hove (and the surrounding areas) that we work with as we want to give each client the best chance of improving health and fitness levels.

So what are the benefits of a FREE  1 hour consultation with a health professional before exercising?

I follow a systematic review of your medical history, injury history, current nutritional habits, past and current exercise habits followed by a discussion of your fitness and nutrition goals matched against your time available to exercise and your exercise knowledge level. Then your trainer will make training recommendations in light of the information raised.

The discussion about the medical and injury history helps the trainer assess your barriers to exercise safely and effectively. Nutritional habits will affect your weight goals whether to put on weight or to lose weight. Past and current exercise habits allow your trainer to assess how much motivation and guidance you require achieving any agreed goals. Some people are new to exercise and require much more help than people who have been exercising for years – each person follows the same process but can often require a very different bespoke programme.

I am confident that I can help anyone from beginner exerciser to hardened pro through a systematic approach that discovers what the individual is REALLY looking for and then deliver a sensible, suitable and safe programme that fits in with their lifestyle and budget.
