Is Your Willpower Withering? Ways to Stay Strong – Not Just in the Gym, but More Importantly, in the Kitchen.

You’re dripping with sweat. You can’t move another muscle. You just killed your workout, and feel great about it. Sure, getting to the gym is a challenge in and of itself. At least your gym partner, friend, or personal trainer can keep you accountable. What our personal trainers and others around you can’t help you with are the decisions you choose to make outside of the gym – and these are the ones that really count.
You can run as much as you want, lift as heavy as you can, but until you dial in your nutrition, don’t expect too much to change. So how do you find the right meal plan and actually stick with it?
1. Avoid fad diets – we shouldn’t even have to tell you twice, but fad diets are always a terrible idea.
2. Avoid calling it a diet – position it as a lifestyle.
3. Don’t fall for the ‘lose weight fast’ claims supplement companies make – there isn’t a magical pill to help you lose weight and actually keep it off.
Most importantly, make sure you find the best ways to help keep yourself on track. Ways that work for others may not work for you – and that’s okay! Try keeping a food journal, either written or digital.
If you go the digital route, we recommend getting a Fitbit, which is a small device you can clip onto your shoe, bra, or clothing. It tracks the amount of steps taken, calories, burned, miles walked. The device also allows you to login online and enter what you’ve eaten for the day, allowing you to stay on track and make sure you’r burning more calories than you take in. If you don’t want to spend any money on a FitBit, there is a free app called MyFitnessPal; which essentially allows you to track the same things but doesn’t show what you’ve burned for the day. Regardless of what you choose – make sure it’s what is best for you!
