Why Does Weight Loss Slow Down?

It all starts so well doesn’t it?

10lbs down in the first 8 weeks then for some reason, it slows down or in some cases, stops.

Yet you are doing exactly the same thing as when you first started.

Which leaves you scratching your head trying to understand why.

I am going to try and explain why this is and what you can do about it to continue to get results.

7 Things you MUST know in order to LOSE WEIGHT

1. The calorie deficit should be your number one priority

The undeniable truth is that energy balance dictates whether or not you will lose weight or not. If you are not in-taking less calories than what you burn, you will not lose weight. There are literally no outliers. Before you say it, yes it is harder for some people, yes people with thyroid issues or P.C.O.S find it more difficult but the energy balance equation remains the most important thing to conquer.

Basically, you must ingest fewer calories than the amount you expend for weight loss.

Weight Loss – Is now the right time?

Before you continue to read this blog, please be aware that I am not saying you have to act on this, I am not saying you should be losing weight right now or any time for that matter. I know that everyone is in a different head-space and I fully understand and respect that, I have clients that are focusing on health right now. However, if you feel that you want to, this might be the best possible time to achieve some incredible results.

As I mentioned a lot of my clients initially wanted to pause their weight loss aspirations because their world had been turned upside down and that was absolutely understandable and so we adapted their goals.

As this situation has become the new normal my clients started to settle down, get into a new routine and push on again for their weight loss goals and this rings true because I’ve also taken on a bunch of new clients who want the same too.

The key to unlocking long-term results is habit change – EVERY SINGLE TIME –

Something I like to say to my clients is…

“Only with action can you change the habits of a lifetime”

I’ve covered weight loss a few times now but I want to give you some insight into how you can still achieve this during the lock-down. Before I go on, I want you to know that it is ok to still work toward weight loss, it is ok to work toward maintaining weight and it is even ok if you gain weight. This is a tough time for us and therefore there are some people that will find it more difficult than others to adapt.

For those that do still seek weight loss however I want you to know it is absolutely possible and in this blog I will discuss how I believe this to be the case. The important thing to remember is that we have to manage all three of the main principles in order to lose weight. Number one is nutrition/calories, number two is overall movement/NEAT and number three is exercise. In this blog I want to specifically address the exercise principle behind weight loss.

Weight Loss – The Worst Kept Secrets

I hear it all the time…

“ I wish I could have a body like ‘Insert Name Here’. “

Now, I am talking here about comparisons to ‘normal’ people, people in the gym that others look at and say the above comment. They say it though with no real understanding or appreciation for what that person has done to look that way. Let’s forget genetics and age etc for a second. Here I want to share with you the characteristics and the things that these people do to look the way they do, to have people say things like the comment above about them.

So let’s start with the ‘diet’, now I have put this in inverted commas because the first question people ask is “Which diet are you on?” Maybe you are thinking you should try intermittent fasting or the ketogenic diet, or maybe Slimming World is for you. You might even have considered the Skinny Coffee’s of the world of Boom Bod because after all you want a quick fix and that’s what they SELL you on. The truth is, you don’t need to do any of these. What you need to do is the thing that all of these ‘diets’ have as the main principle, the reason why they work – THE CALORIE DEFICIT.
