A little Advice From Our Clients
Whether you’re new to fat loss and fitness or aiming to continue with your fat loss and fitness progression, it can seem like a daunting task. However, it is achievable and it can most certainly be done no matter what your age or experience level.
Here are nine top tips from nine successful members at The Performance Project:
1. Seb Probert-Broster: Avoid being too restrictive with nutrition
Don’t restrict yourself (too much) – the moment you stop seeing certain foods or drinks as treats you will understand the importance of portion control “.
2. Helen Hedlund: Make it fun
It can be really tough to cut your calories and consistently go to the gym, so it’s important that you make the journey as enjoyable as possible. Food doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Use lots of spices and perhaps dress up when going to the gym (when appropriate of course) “.
3. Samuel Beach: Trust the process
Be consistent and trust the process. One good day is not going to make you fit and one bad day is not going to make you fat “.
4. Ellee Sanders: Be honest with yourself
If you haven’t lost weight or made progress, could you honestly say, hand on heart, that you’ve ticked all your boxes? Did you do your daily steps? Cardio? Training? Did you stick to your target calories before claiming that you’re not losing weight?
You can lie to myfitnesspal, but you can’t lie to your body “.
5. Kat Henderson: Being OK with ‘bad days’
If you’ve had a bad day, you go off plan, or the present time is just not right (to make progress), don’t see it as failing, just continue doing what you can and understand that periods of maintenance are OK.
Also – aim to make small changes and opt for healthier options but still enjoy social situations. Example: An easy way to enjoy the social side of having a curry with friends, but still staying on track with your fat loss goals, is to simply remove the chicken or meat out of the sauce, as opposed to pouring the entire dish over your rice or naan. And of course, fill yourself up with lots of salad “.
6. Molly Went: Always remember your end goal.
Think about this when you’re ready to cave, feeling fed up, tired, etc, remember the hard work you’ve put in so far (look at progress pics, weight lost) and know you can continue to do this, because you’ve had the ability to do it so far. By the time you’ve gone through the thought process, looked at a progress pic, visualised the end result you want, you may have a bit more willpower for whatever specific trigger is getting to you that day.
7. Nick Shoesmith: Plan ahead
Figure out where you have opportunities to reduce your calories in advance. This will ensure that you still have room for the foods that you enjoy whilst still sticking to your calorie targets.
8. Jess Hancock:
Avoid banning foods or extreme “clean eating” – you’ll likely end up with huge cravings and then binge eat the foods that you’ve been restricting. It’s more sustainable to allow for the odd treat within your set calorie goals. Oh, and there is no way you can out exercise overeating.
9. Becky Durrant: Routine
For me it’s all about routine. Most of the week I eat the same foods at around the same times. It keeps me on track. And spice, lots and lots of spice. Healthy food often lacks the lovely taste that carbs and fat create, so I just make it hot instead.
