Without doubt the greatest amount of enquiries I receive are for weight loss.
New year, approaching that sunshine holiday, summer, approaching the Christmas party season it seems theres always something on its way that sends a flurry of messages into my inbox. Its no surprise given the sheer volume of conflicting advice regarding weight loss, and the amount of options available at any one time – an amount easily running onto the millions. Massive, amazing claims are made routinely in an effort to attract you to a particular system, usually focusing on the speed a result was achieved, “I lost 2 stone in 10 weeks” says the celeb in the red bikini. Chances are she did as well, but show me the celeb who happily maintained that without effort afterwards. Ah, theres not so many of them is there?
Usually, by the time someone reaches my website, they have tried (in their own words) everything there is for weight loss. Slimming groups, low fat diet, low carb diet, the 5-2, starvation……. and they are thoroughly disheartened with the yoyo effect on their weight, usually landing up with more weight than they started with and convinced that nothing works for them. Self esteem has taken a battering, confidence is thoroughly dented and it seems like a never ending, and never to be won battle.
So how come these weight loss solutions seem to work for so many, but not you? Why are the results, if any, so short lived?
The answer is complex. Firstly, there are false successes. The quick fix eat very little for as long as you result, that can shift a few pounds relatively quickly. But starvation doesn’t work for anyone. Your body will adapt to that method of ‘weight loss’, out of need and it will begin to store all the fat it can for your bodies survival – and we all know how that ends, more fat than you started with, hormones (and moods) all over the place, and the unavoidable self doubt of not being able to ‘keep it up’. The reality is you must consume enough calories for all your energy needs to avoid this reaction, but less than what is currently maintaining (or increasing) your overweight. Also known as a calorie deficit.
Thats absolutely what these plans are, a suggested lifestyle method, which has been found to facilitate weight loss, by guiding you into a calorie deficit, one way or another. They do work while you maintain ‘the plan’ or ‘way’ set out, but they are so far removed from your normal or involve so much more effort to keep up, that the effort soon outweighs your motivation. This causes you to take yourself ‘off plan’, go all the way back to your original eating and exercise behaviours, and all the way back to the weight you were. With it come all the feelings of failure not hitting your goal brings, and the comparison to those who get better results. But those who find the longest success on the same plan? That plan fitted them more. Whether the fit was because it was close to their normal way of doing things, or they were happy to fully adopt the new way doesn’t matter so much as it matters that herein lies the key to your success. Permanent success.
A plan is needed when you want to lose weight, and without doubt, the best plan, is obviously the one designed around you. someone else’s plan will always be just that – what worked for someone else.
