Diet tips to get your perfect body

One of the reasons people find it so hard to lose weight is because they still subscribe to common weight loss myths that are actually preventing them from losing weight. At Xercise4Less, we are committed to helping you get the results you want from your gym membership, so we’ve debunked some of the biggest misconceptions that people have about weight loss.

 

Myth 1: You need to exercise for hours every day to achieve results

Not true. Optimise your training. You can easily get the results you need by exercising for as little as 4 hours a week. Of course this all depends on your goals. If it's to shed excess body fat, then looking at your nutrition, calorie intake and macro levels are key to success. We're talking about realistic dieting coupled with cardio exercise. However, if your goal is to build and maintain muscle whilst losing fat, you will have to spend these 4 hours lifting weights at a fair intensity. A far more effective way to lose weight is to participate in a structured exercise regime that steadily builds you up to your optimum level.

Our 8 Week Body Transformation Camps can help you do that. The format of the camps have been devised using a combination of principles. Some originate from various forms of high intensity interval training. These are proven vigorous fat burners designed to create the calorie deficit required to shed excess fat, tone and get stronger. The camps are held 2 or 3 times a week.

  

Myth 2: Low fat foods are always the healthier choice

Be cautious of ‘low fat’ labels because many food companies add extra sugar and salt to compensate for the reduced fat. Sugar actually contributes to weight gain, so this is definitely not the best strategy. Legally, the amount of ‘fat’ in a product only needs to be slightly less than normal in order for it to be labelled ‘low fat'. Instead you need to tailor your diet to suit your individual metabolism and body type. Our upcoming transformation camps include nutritional advice that has been collated from some of the best dietary experts in the country. At Xercise4Less we also have a PRO app that gives you access to dozens of nutrition plans. 

  

Myth 3: Going on a diet will help you lose weight and keep it off

This might seem like bizarre advice when all the hearsay out there say "go on a diet to lose weight". So let’s break it down. If you go on a cabbage soup diet for 3 months and then lose weight, what happens once you come off the diet? That’s right. The weight will pile back on again. For a diet to keep working - it has to be a consistent one, basically a lifestyle. The great news is that making lifestyle changes to your diet is easier than you think. Want to know more?
