Its been said so many times before but it still is the most important thing about staying fit and healthy. watch what you eat. My personal stance on this can be different from the other coaches so if you don’t agree or would like a different opinion please make a time to see one of them and talk to them about it.
If you are at a healthy weight you can indulge over the holiday period or any other period for that matter. Just make sure you do everything in moderation as any unnecessary weight gain will have to be taken care of when you come back to the gym. If you have clear goals it will be a good thing to remind yourself of them to keep you on track. keep up with regular exercise but have a break first and foremost.
If you are trying to get to a healthy weight, any “cheat day” or other excuse you give yourself to eat bad will hurt you more.I don’t believe in cheat days. It might look like they serve a purpose of keeping you on track by getting a small break from following regimented eating but all it does is set you back a week or more. I’m an advocate of finding your “why”, as people with a strong Why don’t need cheat days to stay on track. They are eating healthy for a living. It is not a short term solution to get to a healthy bodyweight, its a life long process to stay at a healthy bodyweight and live a long life and being physically able to enjoy your life. It needs to come from YOU. No amount of stupid motivational quotes are going to do this for you. Only you and a good support network.
If you are trying to lose weight so many things have to go right for you to move the needle. This means you need to try and stay in a positive mindset, eat at the right times during the day and eat the right things and the right amount and try to keep up regular exercise. This is more of a mental exercise than a physical one which means having a strong personal reason for doing it is so important. Merely just wanting to lose weight isn’t always enough because it can be very hard to be so regimented with food intake and exercise. This is also where our coaches come in.
