I Just Started Exercising and Dieting – Why Have I GAINED weight!

Over the years I have seen women go gung-ho with a new diet and exercise program only to find a month or so down the road that they have gained weight.

Has that ever happened to you?

If it has, there is a remarkably simple reason.

Most women’s weight loss and exercise programs proclaim that you need to do longer, harder workouts and follow a restrictive diet to lose weight and increase your metabolism.

And you know what?  Often times that does not go well with your hormones.

Instead of speeding up your metabolism, the negative effects from a reduced calorie diet and long, hard workouts confuse your body and your metabolism responds by producing stress hormones.  Those stress hormones slow down your metabolism and your body will then hold on to weight instead of losing it.

What’s a body to do?

Rather than stressing your body and yourself by restricting your caloric intake and exercising long and hard, just eat three nutrient dense meals a day and exercise regularly at a moderate pace.  That will turn your body into a machine that works for you instead of against you.

Sounds simple right? Well, it is!

moderate workout program will get you stronger, you will lose inches and produce those happy hormones called endorphins.  A good nutrition program will help you get healthier, have more energy and lose some weight.

But what about sustaining your weight loss and making your workout routine a habit?

That’s where the challenging work comes in and this is what could really change your results for life.

To keep that weight off and make your workout a habit, you need to train your brain to think differently by reshaping your long-standing ways of thinking that have held you back from creating new behavior patterns.

This is where a coach can help you.  A good coach will not only help you learn to eat healthier and create workouts that will help you lose inches and create happy hormones instead of stress hormones. That coach will also help you create those new behavior patterns so that eating healthier and working out now becomes a healthy habit.

If you are ready to change your beliefs and change your life, I have a limited number of spots open in my private coaching program FEAST Academy.
