Before you panic try things in this order:

Step 1. Hold food constant and exercise more. Measure. If down keep doing what you are doing. If not move to step 2.
Step 2. Reduce calories consumed by 200-350 calories per day and keep new higher level of exercise. Measure. If down keep doing what you are doing. If not move to step 3.
Step 3. Increase exercise more and reduce calories a little more. Measure. If down keep doing what you are doing. If not move to next step.
Step 4. Estimate Base Metabolic rate using standard equation (find this on the internet easily) and add on estimated calories expended with your exercise routine using widely available calcuators, add up calories consumed on a daily basis. If you are not getting a calorie deficit of about 500 cals per day make that happen and measure. If you are down keep doing what you are doing. If not go to next step.
Step 5. Enlist professional help (from suitable qualified personal trainer) where actual BMR is measured. Do another 7 days of recording food intake and submit for further analysis. Often this focus of enlisting help, i.e. investing money makes things a little more accurate! Measure. If down, keep doing what you are doing. If not go to the next step.
Step 6. See nutritional medicine practitioner to see if there are food allergies and or likely thyroid issues. This type of issue would normally be identified at this point and appropriate action taken.

However, think simple first folks. The solution will usually be found there.

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
