It’s common for new clients to hire a personal trainer wanting to lose weight (fat loss). While I understand the desire to do this, we can and will get there..
We usually have to enter a different kind of approach before we can actually “diet” for fat loss because our first intention must be to achieve optimal psychological & physiological baselines.
Most clients have struggled with yo-yo dieting, binge eating, poor relationship with food, negative body image and sporadic consistency with their workouts.
When we first discuss the concept of dieting in reverse, they are naturally hesitant because it’s quite different than what they are used to. 😲
The amazing part throughout this process they realize that achieving maintenance is a massive progress flex! 💪🏻 It still requires lots of effort and consistency.
In maintenance phase you experience:
🔘Not 🤔 about 🥘 all the time
🔘Less mood swings😃
🔘Ability to be social🥂
🔘Restore hormone balance
It’s important to spend enough time optimizing your metabolism, building muscle, and enjoying your life, so that when & if the time does come to enter a diet phase, things will be easier, an the progress will be sustainable.
