A 'must do' for fat loss

This is a quick post on a 'MUST DO' thing if you want to lose fat. Everyone knows that to lose fat, you have to exercise and eat healthy, but most people tend to just change a couple of things.

Today, there are thousands of products out there, thousands of people preaching how to lose fat, and so on, but most of it is utter rubbish,

A 'fat loss pill' is not going to give you the body of your dreams

A specific food that is known to help with fat loss, is not going to give you the body of your dreams

Doing Zumba once a fortnight is not going to give you the body of your dreams

Notice a pattern? its not just one thing that will change your body, you have to put the hard work in and actually change your lifestyle. Are you fed up with being overweight? do you look in the mirror and wish you were slimmer? are you tired of not being able to wear the clothes you want to wear? then use that, use the reasons why you want to lose weight as your motivation, but you HAVE to change your lifestyle.

What do I mean by change your lifestyle? Well, flip your diet around - no more sugary foods, no more processed foods, no more junk food, reduce or stop the booze, and so forth. Start eating lean meats, lots of vegetables, fruits, lots of water. Get exercising! - Whether its joining a gym or going for walks/runs/bike rides/hiking, just get moving! The more you exercise, the more calories you are going to burn. Combine that with a healthier diet, and you WILL lose body fat. But its a combined effort, not just one thing.

If you really want to look and feel better, than you need to kick yourself up the backside and get going, because it IS possible, you CAN do it, and you will thank yourself for the rest of your life. I have had clients say to me some of the most common reasons for not losing weight - 'dieting doesn't work', 'its in my genes to be fat', and I have told them that those are just excuses, not reasons, and you know what? when they lost the weight, they admitted they were excuses. Anyone can lose weight, but it takes hard work and commitment. Do you have to be super strict forever? no, why? because it's a lot easier to maintain a healthy weight than it is to get down to a healthy weight.

I hope this has inspired some people, and anyone reading that doubts themselves or has their own 'reasons' (excuses), you CAN DO IT!!
