Diets don’t work long term

There are lots of misconceptions about losing weight, and social media is full of fad diets and magic weight loss potions endorsed by celebrities and supported by personal success stories.

While many of these diets may help you to lose weight while you’re following them, as soon as you resume your usual lifestyle, the weight starts to creep back on.

That’s because losing weight isn’t necessarily the problem, it’s keeping it off longer term that is difficult.

Managing weight is a life-long commitment – not just following a diet for a few weeks to drop kilograms.

Remember, if the strategies you’re putting into place to lose weight are not strategies that you’ll be able to follow for the rest of your life, chances are you’ll regain any weight you lose.

That’s why it’s more important to be able to maintain weight loss. Weight loss of about ½ to 1kg per week is considered reasonable and more likely to be maintained.

Make small, achievable changes to your lifestyle

There are many unhealthy misconceptions about weight loss but to reduce your weight, and keep it off, you need to make small, achievable changes to your lifestyle.

If you are carrying excess weight, changing the way you eat and increasing your physical activity, in a way that you can continue over the longer term, is the best way to lose weight.

My online client shared her before and after pictures, I was shocked but pleased about her achievement. She worked very hard and my only advice for her “ Health should be your first priority, Nothing in life is more important than yourself”
