We can’t and won’t be all things to all people. We have philosophies we adhere to and they work for us as people and as trainers. This does not mean that others’ philosophies are necessarily wrong; they just don’t work for My1FitLife.
For example, we will never ask a client to eat extremely low calories and/or spend hours doing cardio simply to show dramatic weight loss for a Facebook post or an advertisement. Healthy weight loss is two pounds per week period.
Eating half your caloric expenditure each day is not only foolish, it’s asking for a rebound of huge proportions. You didn’t put the weight on in a week, so why try to take it off in a week? Slower is better in this department, as challenging as it may be.
We believe in real food for weight loss because ultimately you are trying to change your lifestyle for life-long results. If you drink three shakes a day to lose weight, what happens when you begin to eat again? You haven’t changed your habits and chances are you will gain the weight back faster than you lost it (and in greater quantities). Take it day by day, eat real whole foods, and learn to adjust your taste buds to enjoy fresh meals.
