Lifestyle changes+ Exersise+Proper Nutrition= Success !

       The evidence is indisputable. The most effective way to achieve short term and long term fat loss comes from a lifestyle that combines behaviour modification, balanced nutrition and exercise.            

     There are six stages to Behaviour Modification 

1.    Precontemplation: Denial or not acknowledging there is a problem  

     2.    Contemplation: acknowledging there is a problem but not ready to change

     3.    Preparation: getting ready to change

     4.    Action: changing the behaviour

     5.    Maintenance: maintaining the positive behaviour

     6.    Relapse: returning to the old destructive behaviour.

    At what stage are you at? Simply put, you need to change what you’re doing. Weight management isn’t something you simply try to do; it’s a lifestyle you develop. It takes time and patience to lose fat and become a healthier person.
     New eating habits must develop and mature into a way of life. Numerous studies have shown the highest success rates of people who lose fat and keep it off are people who participate in behaviour modification. The New England Journal of Medicine reported the single most important step in regards to fat loss is to get one on one guidance with a professional personal trainer.
   Optimum health and fat lose comes when we supply our body with sufficient nutrients to maintain blood sugar and energy levels. Immune system, hormones and numerous other things while losing weight.
         If fat loss was simply a matter of burning more calories than you take in, the problem of obesity would have been solved long ago. Your body is constantly self-adjusting. Your body temperature rises, it perspires to cool down. The body will adapt to anything you throw at it. So how does this self-regulating affect your weight loss? Answer: if you are continually underfed, your body will self-adjust by slowing its metabolism. Being underfed results in bone loss and muscle loss and you become trapped in what is called a catabolic syndrome.
        You must maintain a balance between an anabolic and a catabolic metabolism. Anabolic means building up or repairing of healthy tissue,(that’s a good thing) and catabolic refers to the breaking down healthy of tissue (that’s a bad thing). This is the most common reason diets fail and people become trapped in this never ending cycle of losing fat and regaining fat. Over and over again.  We know that protein repairs and rebuild the body, carbohydrates give you energy and fats provide hormonal foundation for cells. To drastically cut back on these foods is ludicrous.   

Bottom Line: Cutting back on calories and not exercising in an attempt to lose fat is a lose,lose situation. In the end you will always end up worse off than when you started. It’s no secret. Proper nutrition with exercise and some simple changes to your lifestyle will get you where you have always wanted to be and keep you there !
