Top 5 Reasons You Can't Keep The Weight Off (it's not the Easter eggs!)

Losing weight and reaching your body goals is a two-step process. You need to lose weight AND keep it off. And that second part can be especially frustrating.

I know lots of people go on these crazy diets and get so excited because they dropped some pounds. But the diets aren’t sustainable. And when they go back to eating like a normal human, the weight comes right back.

The good news is that I’ve got all the tips to help you lose weight and keep it off. And that really comes down to avoiding some of the most common mistakes out there when trying to lose weight. 

So here are the top five reasons you can’t keep the weight off. 

1) Your nutrition is off

If you’re wondering how to lose weight, exercise is definitely part of it... but nutrition is VITAL. That’s why what you eat is so key to help you both lose weight and keep it off. 

If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you have to get your nutrition dialed in. 

On our 6 Week Transformation Programme we give you a personalised nutritional programme and educate you on how to manage your nutrition, to guarantee you lose weight. 

2) You're not moving enough

Nutrition is definitely step one when you want to lose weight and keep it off, but exercise is important too. Not only does it get you fitter and stronger, but it also causes you to burn more calories which in turn will help you lose weight. 

Also, when your body’s working harder, it starts to want nutrients to fuel it instead of junk. I swear, it’s twenty times easier to say no to that cupcake when you’re in a regular workout routine.

If you need a little push ot get moving, don't hesitate to get involved with our 6 Week Transformation Programme where you will be trained 3-4 times a week by our personal trainers!

3) Your diet is too hard

Circling back to what you’re eating because it really crucial to losing weight. Even if you know how to lose weight with a crash diet, there’s a difference between that and keeping it off. 

And that’s because the only way to maintain your results is to keep your calories under control. Now, I’m NOT talking about some crazy restrictive way of eating. Quite the opposite, actually! 

The thing is: when you’re doing a crazy hard diet, it feels that way. You crave a ton of stuff. You’re hungry all the time. It’s just not realistic for you to stay in that state of wanting.

That’s why on our 6 Week Programme we teach you how to eat and drink all the foods and drinks you enjoy and STILL ensure you get the results you're after. 

4) You're starving yourself

Similar to dieting too hard... if missing breakfast in the morning leaves you totally famished by lunch, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Going into lunch feeling starved probably means you’ll eat too much and too fast. It also means you’ll be more tempted by less nutritious food. Who wants to spend time putting together and cooking a meal when you’re just trying to fill the pit in in your stomach ASAP?!

Listen to your body. You should NOT be hungry all the time. Restricting your eating too much can lead to overeating and bad food choices, so it’s your enemy if you’re trying to lose weight and keep it off. 

5) You don't have enough support

I’ve figured out how to lose weight and keep it off - but I'm the same as everyone else, I still get tempted to go for junk or skip my workouts. However, one bad meal can lead to another, one missed workout can lead to another... which is why accountability, support and motivation is CRUCIAL!
