Fitness coaches are often told ‘I lost a lot of weight in the past when I use to workout and diet but now, I have gain all it back’. One of the major fights of people who lose weight, is to keep the lost weight off. Even after losing leading amount of body fat (Weight Loss), keeping it low becomes a fight for the most. If this is you, here’s your way out of this vicious circle.
Why do you gain the lost weight back? (Weight Loss)
This happens because most people look at weight loss and fitness as a short time fix. People have a mind-set that they’ll go to the gym for two to three months. And lose all the surplus body fat and reverse the health issues that have plagued them. Not only is this approach naïve, but to be honest, it is just silly. Your body is not an inorganic construct that once put together, will stay as it is without putting in an effort. i.e. nutritional plus regular physical activity to be in optimal physical condition.
What exactly needed here is habit formation. Take a one step at one time -pick a simple thing and do it constantly. Do it until it become part of your routine. Go a step further then. Keep picking things that will make you fit and make them your habit. It might be a slower process but is sure is a permanent one. it is important to be consistent.
Don’t go back to your old habits
The mistakes most people make is going back to their old habits. Once they feel that they achieved some weight loss. They inflate up again and start looking for new motivation to get fit. Yet, again this non-habit or non-satisfaction formation fitness plans are self-inflicted. Torture that people bring on themselves and ultimately fail.

Plus, it makes you look good what else can you ask for! So yourself a gym membership and start working out. Don’t be under the impression that weight won’t help.
Apart from working out on regular basis, try and be active throughout the day. Sit as an alternative of lying down, stand as a substitute of sitting and take five minutes break every hour and take a walk. Being active helps you burn calories than being sedentary. Which in turn will help you stay learner without cutting down on calories too much.
