Click here to chat with us and schedule a session with one of our certified male/female personal fitness trainers in your area.
Very often, you may find that weight loss attempts remain without result. People do everything they can – eat diet foods, go to the gym, try and get activity out of regular chores – and yet, they end up losing weight very slowly, or not at all.
On the other hand, some people lose weight when they begin their new exercise and diet routines, but soon find that their weight has stagnated. Both these cases can be very disheartening.
The cause for this lies in the fact that weight loss is a process that is always changing. When you begin your weight loss journey, your exercise and diet is planned as per your requirements and abilities. As you progress and continue to lose weight, these plans need to be updated. Additionally, as you lose weight, your goals are altered. For instance, you may want to increase muscle mass while losing fat instead of just losing weight. This needs an altered diet plan and exercise routine.
So how do you ensure that you are getting the right guidance and taking the right steps in your weight loss journey so that you continue to see results regularly? The best way is to take support from a personal trainer.

Additionally, you should always think about the following 5 tips which can throw light onto why you may not be losing weight like you’d hoped to.
Be careful about what and how you eat
Most people who are trying to lose weight tend to rely on diet foods. This isn’t a good idea as many diet foods tend to add too much sugar to make up for lost taste. While losing weight, you need to ensure that you are eating in such a way that:
- you are consuming protein in every meal because this is a powerful metabolism booster
- you are not eating too many calories due to underestimation of your calorie intake
- you eat only when hungry and before you get ravenous without sticking to a schedule of eating every two hours even if you’re not hungry
- you consume more whole foods rather than health foods which are often processed
- you don’t end up binge eating even if this is on healthy food, because too much of any item can be harmful
- you enjoy each and every bite so that you get the most taste, health, and nutrients from it
Be careful about what you drink
Liquids are a very important part of a weight loss journey. While it is recommended that you drink more juices, you should always pay attention to the sugar content in juices, added or natural. Too much sugar will be detrimental to your efforts. Furthermore, it is important to increase your water intake while, at the same time, reduce alcohol intake. Water boosts calorie burning while alcohol increases your calorie intake. Hence, it is very important that you remain mindful of what you’re drinking and take informed decisions regarding your fluid intake.
Pay attention to sleep
Most people ignore the role that good sleep plays in weight loss. Less or disturbed sleep has been linked to obesity. When you sleep, your mind and body get refreshed and are able to approach the next day with positivity and energy to keep going. Sleeping less, hence, is very detrimental to weight loss and healthy living. So, pay attention to your sleep patterns and take the steps necessary to get a good night’s sleep of around seven to eight hours.
Get the right mix of cardio and weight training
Many times, people tend to over-estimate the effect of cardio on weight loss and underestimate that of weight training. Other times, it tends to be the opposite. The truth, however, is that you need a combination of weight training and cardio if you want to lose weight. Opting for one over the other will hinder your progress and may even lead to very little change over time. So, find the workout that includes both and that really works for you.
Finding the right support system
Weight loss is about much more than making dietary changes and adding a workout to your schedule. It is about making the healthy choices and doing so consistently and for a prolonged period of time. In fact, maintaining your weight loss is a matter of making lifestyle changes that you continue to maintain. In such a case, the right support system becomes imperative. While your friends and family members can offer support, they may not be able to do so consistently and for a prolonged period of time. What you need, then, is someone who will always provide the right guidance, and remain involved in keeping you motivated and focused, which will help you continue to lose weight.
