6 Barriers to Body Fat Loss

There's no denying it. A weight loss journey can feel like a formidable undertaking.

It shuttles us through an often surprising process of emotional, behavioral and physical change.

We take on the tasks of learning more about our bodies' needs for optimal health, of implementing new habits that support our metabolic functioning, of exploring what influences (or even people!) both help and hinder our goals.

As complex as the physical picture of fat loss can be, however, the fulcrum of our success is oftentimes our psychological experience.

Understanding our personal challenges means identifying what trips us up and applying the best strategies to address each concern. Below are 6 of the most common "behavioral" barriers that hamper body fat loss.

8 Reasons You’re Regaining Weight

I see it all the time - individuals who experience wonderfully successful weight loss transformations who, in turn, regain some (or even all) of their lost weight back. 

It’s a topic every weight loss coach and his/her client should have, yet most individuals I’ve connected with who’ve lost weight in the past confess they never had a plan for what to do after they reached their goal.  

With this in mind, let me share a cardinal truth: behind every great weight loss plan is an even better weight maintenance plan. 

Why is weight regain so common? Check out these eight reasons I see most often, along with tips for sustaining your success.

8 Ways to Maximize Your Membership

You're paying for a Life Time membership, but have you considered all it gives you access to? It's part of defining what YOUR Life Time will mean for your journey.

Maybe when you registered, you were simply focused on getting back to the "gym." In actuality that day, you joined a healthy way of life destination! What could this mean for your personal goals and interests?

I think of my own trips to the gym (many days I'm there multiple times a day!), and it could mean everything from workouts and tri-training sessions to healthy lunches and hair appointments, from chiropractor visits to hot tub sessions at the end of a long day. 

How are you maximizing your member benefits, and what other Life Time offerings could be serving your experience today? Learn 8 ways you can make that membership work harder for your healthy life!

6 Unexpected Outcomes of Metabolic Testing

Everyone wants their own “perfect plan” for personal health and fitness goals. Wouldn’t it be helpful, after all, to have in hand a plan that easily and succinctly dictates how often you should exercise, which exercises you should do, how much food you should eat, and what types of foods are best for you, etc.?

The difficult part? You won’t have these answers or a “more perfect plan” until you understand your metabolism. Everyone’s metabolism is remarkably different, and what works for one individual may be detrimental to another. 

In order to have certainty that a plan is right for you versus guessing it might be, you need to know more about your metabolism. Until you’re truly healthy on the inside, you can’t look or feel your healthiest on the outside. Because you can’t see those inner dimensions of health, they must be measured. By knowing more about how your body functions, you’ll be able to more perfectly nourish and move your body to get the results you seek, making the most of your time and efforts.
