The scales are not moving even though I am exercising and eating better. What can I do?
This is a situation that almost every single 4321 member has been in at some point. They are training regularly, eating much better than they did before, yet the scales are not shifting! This can be incredibly frustrating and disheartening as no one wants to be putting in the work and not getting the results that they deserve! So what could be causing this plateau and how do you get over it?
Will going gluten free help me lose weight?
As you can imagine this has become a popular question in the last couple of years with the rise in celiac disease. If for any reason you suspect you may be celiac then the best thing to do is to go and get tested to be sure. Today’s question though is not posed by those that are celiac or suspect they are celiac, it is posed by those that are definitely not celiac but think going gluten free will help them shift the excess pounds. So will cutting out gluten help you lose weight?
Is it better for fat loss to train first thing in the morning?
Is it better for fat loss to train in the morning (after fasting overnight) is not only a frequently asked question by clients but is also a hotly contested topic within the fitness industry itself. There are many people that strongly advocate training in a fasted state and others that argue that training in a fasted state hinders performance and therefore, reduces the amount of calories you will burn during this time. When should you train then, if you want to maximise fat loss?
How do I get rid of fat from a specific area?
Unfortunately, we all have some tough spots where most of our excess weight gathers and as you can imagine these are the exact areas that everyone wants to shift. In fact this may be the question I am asked the very most, “how do I get rid of this excess weight?” as the client almost always pinches the relevant area. Therefore, is it possible to reduce fat from a specific area?
How do I become more disciplined?
Discipline is one of the lesser talked about factors when it comes to health and fitness, but it is a question that I get asked a lot because many people know what they need to do to get the results that they want, but lack the necessary discipline to apply it daily. There are an unlimited resources available for training programmes and nutritional information which are all excellent, but only if we use them! How then do we find the necessary discipline to get the results we want and is it something that we can work on and improve?
