How many people in Heanor and Ripley are unhappy with how they look and want to either lose weight, get fit or do both?
There are so many fad diets and so called miracle weight loss scams out there - I know from my own Facebook newsfeed that there are loads of people out there pushing the likes of Body by Vi, Weight Watchers, Slimming World, acai berry, sea kelp and countless other products, all claiming to be the panacea to all our weight issues.
The actual results from many of them are doubtful at best and blatantly untrue at worst. Whilst some of these products may work in the short term, helpING you slim down initially, more often than not the results are unsustainable and you end up putting more weight back on once the 'diet' is over and you resume normal eating.
There is only one calculation that really works when it comes to long term, sustainable health, fitness and weight loss - burn more calories than you eat!
Quite simply, a good, nutritious diet and a sensible amount of regular exercise is the best way to maintain a healthy weight and physique. If you want to lose a bit of weight and get much fitter, the best thing to do is reduce your intake of calories slightly and increase the amount of exercise you do.
Here in Heanor and Ripley we've got some great options to help you. Our highly recommended local fitness experts can help you by devising a great nutrition and diet plan, and a fun, effective exercise programme to suit your own personal needs.
Some people prefer to exercise alone, or with the individual attention of a personal trainer, whilst others love the camaraderie and team motivation of a brilliant bootcamp. Some like to be in the gym pumping the weights and others out in the open air using a variety of equipment. Some even prefer to mix it up with a variety of different sessions over time.
Whatever your preference, the important thing is that you're doing something, and taking your health and wellbeing seriously.
