How To Lose Weight

How To Lose Weight

Personal trainers try and simplify how to lose weight by telling you that all you need to do is track your calories, and in some cases your protein too

And while that is true (weight loss is as simple as calories in and calories out) there is so much more to losing weight than simply following this method

And this is one of the reasons at Gym Reb3l why we do not get our clients to track calories and scan and weigh their foods

Here are 3 simple steps to help you to lose weight and understand what it really takes to lose weight and keep it off

Step 1: Understand Your Goal

People want to lose weight because of how it makes the feel

If we didn't feel overweight, uncomfortable in our clothes and/or low levels of fitness

Then we wouldn't want to lose weight

And this is the case whether you want to lose 5lbs or 50+lbs

We lose weight because of how we feel

But all of this comes down to one thing

We all want to lose weight because nothing beats how feeling healthy FEELS

Imagine being able to walk, run or do any activity knowing you can cope Cardiovascular HEALTH)

Imagine being able to pick anything out of the wardrobe and just throw it on without having to find different angles to see how you look (Positive Mental HEALTH)

Let me share with you a secret that if you follow it will make weight loss easy

If You Focus On Health... Weight Loss Is Easy

Step 2: Understanding How To Lose Weight

As mentioned before, from the outset losing weight is simply about eating less calories than you need

But like I also said, there is so much more to it than that

Very few people will be able to change their eating and exercise habits and lose weight easily

For most it is a journey of set backs, mistakes, days/weeks off but eventually getting to your goal

That is the reality of losing weight for most people

So understanding how to lose weight is important

understand that you will make mistakes, that you will skip days, that you will miss workouts, that you will have days where you don't feel like it

This is all part of the process of losing weight and the quicker you understand that through the process, the new habits you are trying to install are going to take time then the better it will be for you

Never let one mistake or one bad meal dictate the rest of the outcome and just accept it and make sure the next is the best

Step 3: Why You Need To Focus on Habits

We gain weight because of habits.... which means we also lose weight because of habits

Your goal when trying to lose weight is to identify the habits needed to get to the body shape that you want

And then make changes to your current habits

What people don't tell you about this though is that our bad habits are still there

As mentioned above you will have days where you might binge or times when you might slip back in to the habit of having extra alcohol through the week

You need to identify the habits that you currently have and which ones are stopping you from getting the results that you want

Once you have done this then you can start to work on new habits and build these in to your lifestyle
