MAINTAINING WEIGHT LOSS
When transforming your life, you may find that weight loss has come along with your new lifestyle! Something that people find difficult, is maintaining the weight that they have already lost. Today we’ll be discussing how to maintain weight loss in a healthy way!
CONTINUE HEALTHY LIVING
Once weight loss is achieved, it’s easy to get into the mindset that you no longer need to work on staying healthy. This way of thinking is one of the easiest ways to reverse everything you’ve worked on! While you don’t have to continue the same meal plan or exercise regime, it’s still important to ensure that you are eating healthy and still moving. Otherwise, those bad habits will slowly make their way back into your lifestyle.
A great example of this is our Lifestyle Kits! When you have finished your initial 28 days with the Better Body System, you can maintain your progress with one of these kits. You can continue to follow the same meal plan you used during the Transformation Kit, or you switch things up! It’s up to you and what you feel your body needs, but make sure you continue those healthy habits.
EAT ENOUGH CALORIES
When you are following a low-calorie diet, you are in danger of changing the rate at which your body burns those calories. If you follow it for an extended amount of time, then go back to eating a normal amount, your metabolism will have slowed down since it is used to burning lower amounts. Because of this, going back to a regular diet regardless of how healthy it is, you have the potential to gain that weight back since your body will hold on to those extra calories.
Maintaining a good eating plan is essential to both losing weight, and maintaining any weight you have already lost. Diets that provide a lot of vitamins and minerals that your body needs are great! High-protein diets are also helpful for both losing and maintaining weight, as they will help you develop lean muscle, as well as help you stay fuller for longer.
Quick Fix vs Lifestyle Change
Often times when people start diets, they do so with the mindset that it’s a quick, temporary fix. When it comes to long-term weight loss maintenance, this ideal is harmful! There’s no such thing as a quick fix when it comes to weight loss. Once your diet is done, you’ll go back to old habits and gain back all the weight you lost. That’s why it’s important to transform your entire lifestyle, not just your diet.
