Nutritional counselling is a big part of what I do as a trainer. Constantly monitoring food diaries and tweaking your nutrition is what I need to do to help you make the changes you desire in your body composition.
DIET is a 4 letter word!
I truly believe that eating restrictive calorie diets just shuts down your metabolism making it harder and harder for you to lose weight. Most ‘diets’ are too calorie prohibitive and are not sustainable over a lifetime. If the diet is temporary, so too is the weight loss!
What we all need to do is make gradual improvements and changes in our daily nutrition. Be good 80% of the time. Our bodies can’t afford ‘cheats’ every day. We lie when we convince ourselves that ‘we deserve’ that treat or that ‘we burnt the calories’ in our workouts. The truth of the matter is those small ‘cheats’ add up to many pounds over the years and must be stopped!
