I know that with busy schedules and overall stress levels at a high you might say, If someone tells me exactly what to do then I’ll do it. The thought of not having to think about what to do and worry if it’s the most effective and best way to lose weight for you is a relief.
In the back of your mind you know that you could change things around on your own. But your relationship and mindset with weight loss is that it feels exhausting to tackle. I always say that you know enough to lose weight in a sustainable and rewarding way. But sometimes we need to retrain our mindset about what weight loss looks like.
If your answer is no to the above question then it would not be a healthy, easy and rewarding way to loose weight. Even though its getting better but its such a common mindset that you need to do formal exercise to burn of the kcal we eat. This is not true at all. The % of kcal burned from formal exercise is very little. The most kcal burned comes from Basal Metabolic Rate = The energy required to keep us alive. There are also proven with several studies that when we overcompensate one thing it will swing back even further. So, if you restrict food or exercise because you think you have to compensate for the food you eat it wont set you up for sustainable and easy weight loss.
The best way to lose weight is to find a balance between.
Then with this you should shose habist that you can answer YES to form the above questions.
Another common mistake I see hapend is the we often only focus on nutrition and formal exercise to lose weight and not thinking at all about sleep and stress management. If you are not getting the recomended 7-9 hour then majority of the time then there is almost no point. It sound harsh I know, but weight loss should be done in a healthy way. Without sleep we are not truly prioritising our health.
