Slimming World told me not to exercise 🤷‍♀️

So, this one popped up the other day as a few ladies had been told by Slimming World that exercise isn’t good for weight loss and it will ‘only make you feel good’.

And – to a point- they are correct.

Exercise ALONE is a pretty rubbish way to LOSE weight. In fact, in some cases it can make you gain weight. We often overcompensate by eating more and ‘rewarding’ ourselves.

But what about when it comes to keeping the weight you lose off (which is what you want…I’m assuming)?

Well, in a study that followed people that had lost AT LEAST a stone and kept it off for more than a year, one of the most COMMON things they did?

Exercised!

^^^ I’m not saying Slimming World won’t work (because it clearly does for some people​​)​​

And this is the same when it comes to those who keep the most weight off in programmes like the Biggest Loser (where they often put most of it back on) 

Why could help exercise help?

3 reasons:

1- it helps you tone up (fit your clothes better) and muscle helps you burn a few more calories

2- Being stronger and fitter makes everyday tasks easier so you subconsciously do more and burn more calories (without really knowing) just like one of the ladies I work with mentioned the other day when gardening for hours without being sore and stiff the next day, not to mention chasing the grandkids without be AS out of breath as she once was haha

3- you FEEL good, and – well – what do you do when you feel good? Eat better, right? Treat yourself better. 

And it’s why although 80% of this weight loss and toning up stuff is nutrition, I give you short, simple workouts to do which allow you progress, get fit and feel better about yourself.

Julie has just started her journey now and here’s what she said:

“Great programme, Matt. Exactly what’s needed. Accountability, easy app with pre planned training , let’s see what next week brings”

the best part of this?

Julie is super busy, works away a lot is very much an all or nothing person…until now..

After all, getting a B or C grade is still a lot better than an F, right?

So why is that if we go off track a little bit, we think F it?

I’ve kind of gone off on a tangent here.

But if you want to keep the weight off for good and are READY to find a sustainable plan?

I’ll 100% say that you won’t find more accountability and support to help you do this (and if you do please let me know…) than with my Fit For Life Kickstart.
