It is my view that the days of tea and tissues in the therapy room have to go when it comes to helping a fat client lose weight. The vast majority of clients are fat because they have fallen into lazy ways, developed bad habits, and become addicted to food. It is for this reason that a client needs a firm hand.
Now that we're all supposed to be eating 10 portions of fruit and veg a day, it does make me wonder when exactly we're supposed to fit it all in. A quick bowl of sugar snaps before breakfast? A handful of kale with a mid-morning coffee? I think the Australian approach may be a better way to approach the inarguable need to inject fresher, more nutritious food into our lives: Down Under, they promote a 'two and five' slogan - that's two portions of fruit and five of veg a day. Think of it as an upgrade on the UK's five-a-day and it doesn't seem quite such a food mountain to climb.
We all take our joints for granted until or unless we have arthritis and by then unfortunately we are constantly aware of them because of the almost intolerable pain whenever we do anything. This is occurring at younger and younger ages in casual vegetarians because of a lack of quality protein amongst other things.
Fizzy drinks, fruit juice, energy drinks, flavoured lattes, or plain old sugary tea and coffee; drink these regularly and don't be too surprised if you are carrying excess weight. Looking for a painless way to shrink your muffin top? Ditch the liquid calories and start drinking zero energy water (that's the stuff that comes free out of the tap).
My epiphany came when one of the characters in "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" was told that he was "Over fed but under nourished". This man was clearly overweight, had rarely gone hungry in his life and here he was being told that he was malnourished. This is not the kind of malady you'd expect to see outside of the developing world.
The sun is starting to creep it's way back out from behind the clouds and now is when people start to really take notice of their bodies with the layers and layers of Winter clothes starting to come off. Unfortunately people start to look for quick fixes on how to suddenly look amazing for the summer and I am here to tell you that there is no quick fix...
Workouts can sometimes get boring. Gyms, aerobics, running... they work but sometimes you need something to revitalize you and keep you interested in your workout. I know that after buying all of those Christmas presents, parties and outfits, everyone is looking to save some money but exercising needn't be expensive
You know how it goes, it gets to Friday night after a very trying week and instead of the nice clean meal you had planned, you opt for the nearest take away and grab that bottle of wine. After you have eaten it you suddenly start to feel guilty and think that you have wrecked your diet. This then leads onto the thought that if you have already spoiled things then you may as well make a weekend of it.
When you first embark on healthier lifestyle you're not the only one who needs to make adjustments - those around you have to get used to the new you too. Even though eating a more nutritious diet and exercising regularly are clearly positive changes, you may well come up against resistance from other people and it's important to pre-plan how you'll deal with it.
So many fitness enthusiasts tell the same story. They work out for hours in the gym and yet nothing happens to their body shape, it stays the same. There could be any number of possible explanations for that, but to help you narrow down some of the causes, here now are some of the worst fat burning mistakes.
