Whether you are trying to drop 10 pounds or 75 pounds, losing weight and keeping it off is tough. There is no one-size-fits-all regimen that works for everyone. The key to successful weight loss is finding a personalized workout regimen that is right for you, learning how to eat right and having someone to hold you accountable.
- The Right Fitness Plan: Not everyone is built to be a marathon runner, but there is an exercise and a starting place for every person. A key to long-term fitness is starting with achievable exercises that challenge you but don’t deter you from continuing to work out. Finding a personalized workout plan that can evolve as your capabilities grow is also important.
- Proper Nutrition: Eating right is HARD! Our busy schedules and nonstop lifestyles make it challenging to eat healthy. Learning how to eat right within your capabilities and schedule is key. Planning your meals makes it easier to stick to your diet. You’re less likely to eat out or go off your track if you already have your meals planned for the week.
- Accountability: Willpower alone often isn’t enough to keep you on track. You’re more likely to meet your fitness goals if you have someone holding you accountable for it. A fitness coach can keep you motivated and help you track your progress. Using a food diary to log everything you eat makes you more aware of what you’re putting in your body and will make you think twice about what you’re eating.
