Happy New Year with a blog from Leah-Carter- Welch the Miss England Sportswoman!
So, Christmas and New years celebrations have come and gone for another year, finally reality has set in!
As we all go back to work, or school a lot of us may set a resolution to try get back in shape and back to the gym, here is a few helpful tips and reminders to help us get back in our routine.
Let’s begin with some Myth Busters,
- You do not need to be in a calorie deficit to lose weight, this means you do not need to starve yourself!!
- Your body will already burn 1500 calories (if you’re a woman) or 2000 (if you’re a man) just on normal metabolic processes. Therefore, if you are eating the recommended calories and exercising on top of that… you are already going to start to lose those extra pounds.
- Additionally, it is not healthy to lose a lot of weight quickly and can result in complications, it is far better to do it gradually and safely.
- However, if you are really struggling to see a change one big thing that may impact you is your sugar intake. If you limit/reduce the volume of sugar you are consuming it forces your body to use its fat stores for energy.
