    Real Results Fitness- Personal Training in Rockford Michigan- Are You Eating Enough To Lose Weight??

    ~Want to lose weight? Not losing weight? Then keep reading..... Did you ever think you might not be eating enough? I am amazed how many assessments I do and I determine someone is trying to lose fat and eating somewhere between 800-1200 calories per day. They think this is plenty however it's usually way below what their body needs just to function at rest. This means metabolism, thyroid, liver, kidneys, etc are not going to function consistently and properly if you're ea ting 800-1200 calories per day. If you are exercising daily you will need even more calories to function! If you are not getting the minimum amount of calories your body needs ....

    Reason 9) Poor Attitude and Believe System
    A big reason people struggle to lose weight is they have a poor attitude and belief system. Have you ever caught yourself saying the following phrase “I can’t?” ‘I can’t lose weight” “I can’t exercise.” Most who say “I can’t” really believe they can’t. But the reality is they can, they just choose not to. To lose weight and keep it off you really need to believe in your self and say “I can and I will!” Never underestimate the power of positive thinking. If you really want to exercise ....

    Reason 7) Looking For the Magic Pill or Potion
    As a personal trainer I get questions all the time about what are the best supplements, drugs or pills to help lose weight and burn fat. My answer is always the same “A supplement, drug or pill will never be the solution.” Any pill, powder, or supplement is a lie that says, “This will burn fat”, or “This will make you lose weight.” Why? No pill or powder or potion will burn fat by itself without some effort from you. There are some supplements that can help/aid you in burning fat but it will take some effort from you. If you are exercising ....

    Reason 5) Eating Too Much
    Eating excessive calories is probably the number one reason people are not losing weight. With the rise of fast foods and unhealthy foods everywhere we turn its no wonder that obesity has effected our population so much. It is said that Americans today eat 30% more than they did 20 year ago. Food is sold in bigger containers, and portions in restaurants have increased as well. When you eat more than your body burns these calories will most likely be stored as fat. The most effective way to treat overeating is to focus on eating less food but not starving your self. Focus on eating ....

    10 Reasons Why You’re Not Losing Weight- Part-2

    Yesterday we discussed the first 2 reasons why most are not losing weight. if you missed it you can find it here: 10 Reasons You’re Not Losing Weight-Part-1 Below are the Reasons 3 and 4. Reason 3) Not Exercising Enough
    To truly lose weight we have to create a calorie deficit. Therefore we have to focus on burning enough calories each day and week to drop weight. One pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories. So to lose one pound of fat a week you must burn 500 calories per day. To burn calories, I tell clients that you can do this in multiple ways. One way is by having an active lifestyle. This is important and it does count in the calorie burning equation, ....

    10 Reasons Why You’re Not Losing Weight- Part-1

    As a personal trainer, fitness and nutrition coach, I have worked with hundreds of clients over the years. It seems almost every client I have worked with comes in with some form of misinformation or they believe they already have an idea of what they need to do to lose weight and keep it off. Unfortunately, many of these individuals have been told by our society to believe that there is only one way to lose weight and that is by “eating less food and exercising more.” This statement is true to some degree; you do have to create a calorie deficit each day and week to lose weight on the scale. I would also agree exercise is a very important factor in losing weight. However, ....

    Top Nutritional Mistakes People Make Outside the Workout- Mistake #2-Cutting Out Carbs

    2) Cutting Out Carbs with no strategy in place. The low carb diet craze has been in effect for over decade. Some of the more popular diets like Atkins and South Beach were two of the better known diets where you eliminate the majority of starchy carbohydrates in your diet and some things like fruit as well. This is a major mistake as an effective solution to long term fat loss. Why are carbs so important? Carbohydrates are your bodies preferred source of energy. Meaning for you to have steady energy and blood sugar throughout the day you need to have carbohydrates in our diet. Why have the low carb diets worked so well for people to lose weight in the short term? When you eat ....

    The 5 Biggest Mistakes People Make In the Gym- Mistake #5- Not Using Proper Form and Resting Too Much.

    One of the biggest mistakes I see and have seen in the gym is people working out and not using proper form when they lift weights. These mistakes are usually made using free weights but I see them made on cable machines, and stationary weight machines as well Proper exercise execution and form is crucial for not only safety but seeing the best possible results from your workout. The biggest form mistakes I see are: 1) Swinging and using momentum during the lifting and lowering of the weight
    . Though this will allow you to handle more weight but this type of form will get you no where as far as the results go. 2) The tempo of the movement is too fast and momentum takes ....
