Fitness tips to jump start your week!

Did you know that 80% of Americans who HAVE a gym membership don't use it 

I have some fitness tips for you that you might not know or think of when you are starting your weight loss journey ! So let's get started :

-Muscle and fat weigh the same BUT they do not take up the same space in your body. Muscle is a lot more condense than fat. In my personal experience, if people are not losing weight on the scale but losing inches all over, that is the better path to be on than just weight loss.

-Eating more to lose more is one concept that I know many people struggle with. You may think eating a 100-calorie snack pack of cookies or pretzels is a good idea but it’s more likely to make you hungrier than if you ate something more substantial Always think quality first. Ask yourself if this food you are consuming is giving you nutrients vs. comfort.

-Drink water! A lot of water in fact, because it helps you to look smaller and will decrease bloating. So many clients I speak with limit water intake on days they want to look smaller but they could just be dehydrating themselves and appear puffy.

-You can't outsmart your body. Once you are getting comfortable with your training or nutrition your body adapts to that. What happens next is that you don't burn as many calories as before to do the same amount of workload. You need to always be changing things up from increasing intensity or making sure you are not sitting in a plateau for your nutrition.
