Weight Loss Takes Diet and Exercise - Canton

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Weight Loss Takes Diet and ExerciseWeight loss is a two-way street. If you want to lose weight this spring, you need to be able and willing to help yourself and commit. Don’t  expect to take a pill and wait for the weight to melt off. It just doesn’t happen that way. Weight loss takes lifestyle changes.

Changing the way you eat — and the way you live — is the key to dropping weight. In order to keep it off, it is not a temporary change, it’s a new lifestyle.

Dietary changes are the primary focus for weight loss. You don’t need to count calories or track carbs, but choose to use healthy eating guidelines like cutting out soda or fast food. Also decreasing portion sizes, and increasing fresh fruit and vegetables is important too.

In addition to improving your diet, you also need to start or increase the amount you exercise. In order to lose weight you need to burn more calories than you take in. You can only do this though diet and exercise.

You need to create the right fitness goals that are small, incremental, and measurable. As you reach each goal, you stay motivated and interested to reach the next one. Weight loss does not happen fast, but as you change your lifestyle, you will notice that you feel better, your mood is better and that you have more energy. Expect to lose 5 pounds a month or so.

When you start to work in exercise into your routine, start small if you are used to a sedentary lifestyle. As time goes on, as you work with a personal trainer, or get help at a fitness club, you will learn how to maintain your weight loss through exercise.

Weight loss is 90 percent diet. Weight maintenance is 90 percent exercise.

Springtime Weight Loss Tips – Canton, Stoughton

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 03, 2014

Springtime Weight Loss TipsSpringtime is often when people really try to focus on losing winter weight and getting ready for the summer and bathing suits. If you have decided to lose weight by summer, make the most of your work-out by avoiding the following missteps.

Don’t do the same exercise all the time. Your body gets used to the same exercise if you do it every day. Meeting weight loss goals can be much more effective when you surprise your body once in a while. Change up your workout and the intensity or duration of your exercise. If you really want to lose fat, try some high intensity interval training. This means shorter cardio workouts at a higher intensity. Getting your heart rate up in bursts increases your metabolism and burns more calories.

Pay attention to the math. For every pound you want to lose, you need to burn an extra 3,500 calories. Create the deficit by reducing the calories you eat, and increasing the calories you burn from exercise. Generally, people overestimate the amount of calories they are burning and underestimate the calories they are eating. You need to do the math. The only way to lose weight is through a combined effort of healthy eating and exercise.

Don't ignore strength training. You should be excited when you are exercising regularly. But, usually that exercise is some type of cardio workout. Don’t forget about building and maintaining muscle. The more muscle you have, the higher your metabolism rate. For weight loss you need to do some form of strength training. You don’t have to use weights necessarily; you can use your own body weight and do planks, push-ups, and squats or lunges.

Pass Your Weight Loss Plateau – Canton, Stoughton

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 27, 2014

Pass Your Weight Loss PlateauHas your weight loss come to a grinding halt? Are you still eating well and exercising but pulling your hair out because you can’t seem to lose the next little bit? Often, personal trainers are approached by frustrated trainees complaining that they are doing everything right, yet still not seeing results.

Maybe you have lost a few pounds; you exercise, and healthy eating is now a part of your life. You never miss a session, and your food is consistent. You saw great results initially but are now struggling to lose the last few pounds. What’s going on?

One of the possible reasons for this very frustrating yet surprisingly common occurrence: exercise progression and the results plateau.

We are creatures of habit. Once we start doing something, our body adapts quite quickly, making us more efficient at whatever we are doing.

After some time of doing any program, your body will adapt to the intensity, duration, frequency, and even the type of exercise you are doing. Doing the same workout again and again will only produce desirable results for a limited amount of time.

Regularly, people walk into the gym, day after day for months and months, doing the same thing over and over. They usually begin with a 20-minute run and then go straight into three sets of 10 on the bench, a bit of lat pull-down, and perhaps some dumbbell curls. They might even throw in a class here and there.

Initially, this gets great results; losing weight and have added some lean muscle, but now perhaps you look exactly the same as you did six months ago, and your fitness and strength levels are probably fairly similar.

When was the last time you felt those jelly legs when walking out of the gym? Or that cold feeling in your chest and subsequent endorphin rush to your brain after putting in 110 percent in your cardio session? When was the last time you did your personal best for any exercise?

If the answer to any of these questions isn’t “in the last fortnight,” then you are wasting your time in the gym.

Consider these questions: When was the last time you dropped a dress size, noticed a “new” muscle, or caught a glimpse of your changing body shape in the mirror? Again, if your answer isn’t “in the last fortnight,” perhaps it’s time to change your training.

Without real intensity, the best program, performed with the best trainer on the planet, will only deliver average results at best. Once you are sure that you are bringing the desired level of intensity to your workouts, personal training force you to progress your exercise and bust through plateaus!

Stay Motivated to Lose Weight – Canton, Stoughton

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 21, 2014

Stay Motivated to Lose WeightFitness is about being healthy and not about great abs and big muscles. Health and well-being is about eating right and exercising. But it is also about making the right choices and the right decisions. It is easy to decide you want to exercise. But it is just as easy to lose your motivation or your interest; especially if you have not made attainable, or realistic fitness goals or if your goals are too general.

Too often, when people want to lose weight, get in-shape and become physically fit, they think they need to start running. Those who like and enjoy running can do this; to others it is too much work and too challenging, perhaps too boring. You don’t need to become a runner to get in-shape. If you don’t know how to start, join a gym and get the support you need.

Running can have a lot of impact on one’s body especially knees, and lower back. It is not an exercise for everyone. Cardio equipment and group exercise classes can be used to save on the wear and tear on your body, giving you full-body results with the least amount of impact on your joints.

Oftentimes, when people attempt to work out on their own without a gym or equipment, they can get bored, and their workouts suffer or stop altogether. The secret is in changing your workout, keep doing different things.

Getting started on a workout regimen is hard enough; too many people struggle to stay motivated. To begin exercising is a decision for most people, but the easiest decision is to stay home and skip it. It comes down to making a choice. Deciding to work out can be the hard choice, but it will pay off.

Most people want to start exercising and lose weight because of how they look, but it should also be a matter of how you feel. Once you begin to workout, you will feel it in your attitude, feel it in your bones, feel it in your muscles and feel it in your energy level.

When you are losing your motivation to workout, look for new challenges and new ways to get results; personal training can help. Also, think about the progress you have made or the goals you want to achieve.
