• Exercise is Not Punishment for Food!

    Hay guys, remember health camp and all that chat about feeding the beast? You know, eat for the exercise not to lose weight?  Well here I am trawling the internet after the Christmas party and I found this we gem.  Please read it as we go into the Christmas holidays.  I’m a firm believer in not putting too much pressure on yourself when it comes to weight goals.  I remember training hard and eating any kind of protein to put some weight on for rugby (if only it was a struggle now!).  I should have been focused on eating right, performance and rest.  This article takes on a slightly different subject, but a similar view on how you should approach exercise and diet, while keeping that healthy eye on your mind!

    It was written in the approach to the American Thanks Giving holidays by Nia Shanks of Lift Like a Girl.

    I hope you enjoy.

    The best way to lose weight is to accept that calories count. Many people believe that if they eat healthy and exercise, they will lose weight. Unfortunately, eating healthy foods is not enough. Creating a calorie deficit is an essential part of losing weight. http://www.dietmythsandfacts.com

      The only way to lose weight is to go into a negative calorie count. But, destroying yourself or eating powder products and not much else is not the answer. Like everything in life, do things properly and with a little balance will see your gains or losses last longer and be more sustainable. Jase
