Better Understanding about Diet and Weight Loss

Hey, we usually do blogs and reports on the days experiences here on site but for a change I thought I'd do one that covered some of the things we talk about during the course.

In the time I have been working as a trainer either for FitFarms or previously as a personal trainer I have noticed a trend with people trying to get fit, lose weight or become more healthy and that is that there is always added pressure to achieve results and to do so in as short a time as possible, certainly the majority of people that join us on our weight loss and fitness retreats are expecting to be measured at the start and at the end and are expecting to be pushed and worked hard in order to achieve the best results possible.

Imagine if it just didn't work that way! Imagine that there is more to it than that and that the exercise really just helps to accelerate the results but only when the body is in some sort of harmony. How many times do you hear, "I exercise a lot but. It doesn't make any difference" or "I don't eat much but I just can't lose weight!" Or even "I've tried every diet known to man but they don't work!" ..

The truth is diets work! They do exactly what it states in the small print, what they don't do is fix the issues causing the cravings or the poor energy levels or the lack of motivation or the lack of results, diets are a great for those in a good place that need to just spur themselves on or give themselves a boost or shock the system or make a short term change of some sort. But they can not help someone who eats the wrong food or has no interest in exercise or that has stress issues or too much going on in their work or family life, most of us don't need diets, we need to have a better understanding to empower us and enable us to make the right decisions, that is what we want from a week at FitFarms.

That is what we aim for.
