This is one of the most frequently asked questions when a person begins their weight-loss journey.
- How do I lose weight?
- How to lose weight?
- How to lose weight fast?
- How to burn fat?
- How to lose 10lbs overnight?
The questions are endless, but the core remains the same within each, ‘lose weight.’
In some sense weight loss should be easy, because all advice (most advice) point to the following:
- Healthy eating
- Follow a fitness plan
- Have the determination to stick to the above.
I’ve found that many sources of information, fail to delve deeper and highlight the following:
- Healthy eating – Changes to diet, Allergies, Portions, how much is too much? Plant-based benefits?
- Follow a fitness plan – What fitness plan? Resistance training for weight loss?
- Have the determination to stick to the above. What is the determination? How to identify motivation? The effects on your mind when you fail?
There are a plethora of key elements that derive from weight loss but most outlets just tell you to focus on one area. When in reality one must work on all three elements to achieve successful weight-loss.
For example: I’ve known someone who solely focused on her diet. Yes, she was successful in losing weight but her muscles were weak and her mind was not prepared for the aftermath of substantial weight-loss, such as loose skin.
Another example: A person that focuses specifically on fitness, fails to address the fact that unhealthy eating got them to become overweight. Thus, what you begin to find with some people, is that they quickly gain weight the moment they lag a bit with either diet or fitness.
A final example: An individual who focuses on fitness and diet, may lose weight, and look fabulous. However, they fail to address the mindset that aided their weight-gain.
In short, to lose weight, you must work on all three elements. This will not only help you to reach and sustain your goals – it will help you to become a healthy version of yourself.
I’ll be sharing free plant-based meal planners, fitness planner and positive mindset documents. However, only you can lose weight!
Information is out that and there’s plenty of it when it comes to health and fitness. It’s your responsibility to sift out what applies to you and it’s your responsibility to apply best practices to achieve all your health goals on time.
