Stay Active

Staying active is the most important thing to focus on if your dedicated in keeping the weight off. As science tells us energy in verse energy out will determine if you gain or lose weight at the end of the week. Exercise increases resting metabolic rate which enhances daily energy burn. In addition, physical activity increases endorphins and supports a healthy mind. Stay committed to training five times a week including 2 weight resistance sessions

 

Learn To Say No

Willpower and motivation will be tested the greatest during the maintenance phase of the journey. It is critical to continue working on mind state to build up courage to say no to unhealthy foods and beverage choices. Consuming junk food a few times a week increases calorie intake, impacts energy levels during a workout and weakens willpower. It’s not what we consume in a day that counts but rather over a period of 7 days.

 

Be Conscious of Your Food Portion

Over eating is the quickest way of over consuming calories in a day, so be mindful of how much food is on your plate. To prevent over-eating any of the three macronutrients, half the plate should be non-starchy vegetables, ¼ carbs and ¼ protein with a couple of tablespoons of healthy fats added on the side. In addition, reducing food portion can be controlled by consuming a non-starchy salad before every main meal to load up on filling fibrous rich foods

 

Make Up For It The Next Day

If you have indulged in foods which you shouldn’t have, don’t dwell on it but rather make up for it the next day. We recommend doing a double workout the next day to burn off those additional calories consumed. In addition, eating a low carbohydrate and high protein eating plan 7 days after will prevent fat storage

 

Increase Alkalising Rich Foods

Alkalising foods will help beat the bloat, stimulate metabolism and enhance energy levels. Furthermore, an alkaline predominant diet will assist in reducing an acidic pH in the body, lower inflammation, improve mineral levels and suppresses appetite. Alkalising rich foods include dark green vegetables, lemon, limes, organic grasses, apple cider vinegar, nuts and seeds.
