In our pursuit to lose weight and achieve the body we desire, we tend to forget what is actually more important: health.
In the video below I talk about nutrition and exercise mistakes which, although might help us lose weight, compromise our health.
Summary of video
In terms of nutrition, many people have the tendency of jumping from one diet to another simply because one didn’t work within the set time frame, or didn’t work as good as they expected.
As a result we create chaos in the body. It doesn’t have time ti adapt to any diet and, where there is no adaptation, there is no progress.
As a consequence of jumping from one weight loss diet to another, the body doesn’t have time to take in the nutrients that comes from a specific diet, it didn’t have time to adapt to it, provided it is a good diet.
We need nutrients, including fats, for healthy bones, skin, eyes, organs and everything else. We forget that food is fuel, and we focus on food as a weight gain-weight loss game.
Furthermore, losing weight for a few months is nonsense. We must maintain a balanced weight and a lifestyle diet throughout the year. Even if our weight oscillates by a 2-3 kg, that is still a balanced weight.
In terms of exercise, although all forms of exercise have their place at the right time, when we pursue weight loss we tend to forget that burning calories is not the most important. We must ensure we are educated by coaches who are qualified and study movement.
Why? Well, if you lose weight at the expense of a damaged body, you have achieved nothing. Absolutely nothing. If you lose weight but get back pain, knee pain or damage a shoulder, it’s all gone. A damaged body will never fully recover.
Thus, take your time with exercise, and shift your focus from calorie burning to performing movement correct.
