If fat loss is your goal and I can tell you it is with about 90% of our clients then you just have to track what you do and here is a study that heavily supports this assertion.

“Researchers from Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research kept tabs on 1,685 overweight and obese adults (men and women), whose average weight was 212 pounds.

So if you are a client of ours we provide an online fitness journal for this express purpose. We would like to see you use it!  We have always said, if it isn’t written down it didn’t happen. But keep in mind, when we say this we are referring to exercise. We are definitely NOT referring to food. Because, whether you write it down or not, or whether someone saw you eat it or not, or it was only a broken piece of biscuit not an actual biscuit etc etc. That event DID happen and your body will not lie!

We will soon have a new system available  that can help you  plan your meals, put together a shopping list and track your progress! Prepare to be impressed and stay tuned for more info. In the mean time awareness = successful behaviour modification when it comes to forming good habits of eating and exercise.

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’.

If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
