What is healthy weight loss | Portland Personal Trainer

So what is healthy weight loss? Is it like the biggest loser and reducing your weight each week by a massive amount? I think we all know the answer, but social media, television, reality shows, etc., have been mesmerizing us that we need results quick, fast and easy. When it comes down to it, you need to do the work. Yes, there are some individuals who are blessed with great genetics, and I hope they realize it and really take advantage of it, but like most of us, we need to put the time, effort and sweat into it. It takes hard work and determination, but also one major component, shutterstock_174706280consistency.When it all comes down to it, you can have the best app on your phone, the best diet that you are reading and even the best personal trainer, but it comes down to being consistent with your habits and staying clear with your goals. If you are to speak with any successful entrepreneur, business owner, athlete, technology maven and a rock/pop star they all say the same thing. How bad do you want it, how clear is your path to get there and are you willing to do what it takes to make that goal a reality. If you can say yes and really create a plan of determination and consistency, then you will have the advantage edge to create that positive result.There was an excellent article that was published a few months back about the individuals who went through drastic weight loss through rigorous fitness programs, and the results were pretty amazing, but also sad for the individuals who participated. To sum it up, the resting metabolic rates (BMR) after a few years of losing all of this weight, slowed down. This is crazy to see, because you would think that the BMR would be super high, but with the intensity of the exercise and the shocking caloric deficits these individuals were enduring, you can’t but that their bodies were going into starvation mode and holding on to what they could. There is more science that goes into this, but I just wanted to give you a bare bones explanation on what was happening.There are exceptions to every rule, but when this researcher followed these contestant’s years after they were on their shows, the results spoke for themselves. Not everyone can exercise 6+ hours per day, have a chef to cook your meals and have medical on site in case something goes wrong. Yes, we have access to the best apps, doctors, Portland personal trainers and experts, but when it comes down to it, slow and easy is the trick. You can still train hard, sweat it out, but too much and too little is not the trick, moderation and consistency is!The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington StreetSuite 137Portland, Oregon 97214503-953-0241
