EXERCISE – Exercise is the spark, good food is the fuel, without both there can be no flame and thus no results. Ideally we should be doing a moderate amount of exercise 3-5 times a week MINIMUM, however people normally manage to find an excuse to only use the gym twice a week………A healthy lifestyle is not just about turning up at the gym twice a week though, at WhiteWay Fitness we treat our clients as individuals and offer bespoke programmes suited to their needs and desired goals, achieving realistic results in minimal time.
NUTRITION – One of the most important things to keep in mind when your aiming to achieve your ‘weight loss’ goal is not to spike your insulin levels. Insulin is a hormone produced in the pancreas which regulates the amount of glucose in the blood, your body uses sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates in the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. Meaning more carbohydrates = more sugar = more insulin (more glucose stored for future use, normally as fat). Note: carbohydrates are not the only source of food that creates this effect.
GOAL SETTING – This is massively important in weight loss as we need to make sure we are getting closer to our desired goal. Our target should be set before changing our diet and lifestyle, making sure we set monthly goals so we can start to see results. With goal setting we need to make sure our goals are ‘SMART‘ Specific – target a specific area for improvement. Measurable –suggest an indicator of progress. Assignable – specify who will do it. Realistic – state what results can realistically be achieved. Time-related – specify when the result(s) can be achieved.
