Forget fad diets and weight-loss gimmicks

"...there always seems to be a new fad diet or exercise device that promises to be the ONE that will get you there."

When it comes to weight loss there always seems to be a new fad diet or exercise device that promises to be the ONE that will get you there.

Trendy or fad diets can sound like a newer or easier way with all their hype and promises, but in reality they’re anything but.

You may get excited about the latest diet scheme or (latest exercise device), and often spend a small fortune only to discover after a short time that the excitement fades as you realize its either an unrealistic and/or an unsustainable way to live especially for the long term. Even if you do happen to lose a few pounds, weight comes right back.

I’ve seen all of these come and go, and it can be overwhelming for someone who just wants to lose weight.

There is no magic diet, workout routine, or pill that will give you the weight loss results you want.

If a diet sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

The good news is that with an uncomplicated common sense approach that combines the right nutrition: (feed your body what it needs for a healthy weight loss); incorporates a low to moderate strength training program, and includes your favorite form of cardio exercise, you will guarantee sustainable weight loss success every time.

A qualified personal trainer can design a customized program, provide nutritional guidance and support, and help you stay on track and motivated to reach your goals.

It worked for Michelle Huber who not only completed, but well surpassed the requirements for the RCMP PARE test recently.

All Michelle’s hard work and determination in the gym paid off. Way to go and congratulations!
