4 reasons you’re not shedding those last few kilos

Less filling and easy to over-consume. Smoothies and juices may seem like healthy options, but can be packed with sugar and kilojoules. Cut back on sweetened beverages. Think carefully about long-term alcohol habits and drink less.

2. Portion size

Eat slowly and use smaller plates.
3. Mindless eating

We live in a culture of plenty, and food is easily available. Keep snacks out of sight to avoid temptation and overeating.

4. Inadequate protein

Inadequate fibre and/or protein can lead to overeating. Both these nutrients are filling and should be included at every meal. Protein is important also for maintenance of muscle mass.

So how can we stay on track?

Think about your core values and what you want out of life. What brings you happiness? Perhaps you rank health as a high priority and want to feel good and have more energy? Now look at small steps you can take to live in line with these values.

Find something that suits you. Hate the gym? Then don’t force yourself to go. Instead find something you enjoy (maybe yoga, bushwalking, pole dancing or underwater hockey is more your style?). If you indulge in fitness pursuits that you value and enjoy, you will be happier and more motivated.

Be open to change. Just because running half marathons worked for you five years ago, doesn’t mean that running is still the best option for you now. Listen to the needs of your body and switch to a new fitness routine if necessary.

Have realistic expectations. If you weigh under 100 kg then it’s not safe or realistic to try losing more than 0.5 kg per week. If you weigh between 100 to 150kg, then one kg per week is achievable, and if over 150 kg, then two kg per week is considered healthy.

👉🏼 Don’t make it your goal to be fit....
Make it your goal to be disciplined and being fit will follow. Being fit reflects hard work, you can’t obtain it without patience, passion and practice. You can’t inherit it.. You can’t borrow it.. You can’t hold on to it without constant dedication. Exercise to be the best version of YOU!! Eat to be healthy and nourish your body. Along the way.. Ignore the haters, the doubters, the nay-sayers and the unhealthy examples that were once feeding you. Always remember the same water that softens the potato, hardens the egg. It’s about what you’re made of! Let self motivation run through your veins... Now let’s do this! 😤

For me, my motivation comes from within.
I am a non-stop learner, non-stop experimenter, non-stop quencher of my curiosities, and a non-stop yearner to become better as a person. Life is about finding your passion and living within that dream! My passion is to improve the lives of others, by giving people the tools to boost their self-confidence, to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle and to chase their own dreams without the thought of fear or failure. My motivation comes from within but is boosted by my surroundings. You are who and what you surround yourself with. So hang around people who make you hungry for life, touch your heart and nourish your soul. Ultimately you are who you choose to be. You are not what happened to you in the past.. so let go. YOU ARE NOW! You are in this very moment. What will you do with it.. Who will you choose to become..
