It’s no surprise people find fat loss confusing. As a society we’re bombarded with advice from every angle, it becomes hard to know what the best approach is.
You may have heard some of these before:
“My genetics are stopping me from losing weight”
“My metabolism is slow”
“I can’t eat anything after 8pm as I’ll gain weight”
“Carbs make you fat”
“I need to do a juice diet to cleanse”
Exhausted? We know the feeling.
We’re here to cut through the BS and give you the most evidence led approach possible. You won’t find any fad diets or elaborate diet protocols here, just the basics that work.
We strive to find the balance between what’s optimal and what’s actually practical in someones life. Then work with you to find a balance where dieting doesn’t feel too challenging with your busy schedule.
Many of our clients aren’t asking for six-pack abs. They want to drop some fat, feel stronger, be more confident and enjoy life.
Unlike many gyms, were not show casing our top 5% of clients that get a six-pack. We celebrate the real results. We don’t diet you down for a photoshoot for our marketing purposes, only to see you lose the results a few weeks later.
Knowledge is power and our goal is for you to leave with all the information you need to do it yourself.
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee timeframes as everyone is different. There is one thing for sure however, you get out what you put in. The more commitment to the plan we see, the better the results.
You must be in the appropriate stage of change to be able to make the necessary adjustments to your diet and lifestyle needed. If you are not ready then the process will naturally take longer.
Spot reduction is a myth at best. Only through sustaining a calorie deficit for long enough can we expect to see general reductions in body fat.
Yes, the diet or achieving a ‘calorie deficit’, is the primary driver of body weight/fat losses. Without being in a deficit, you will not see any changes. As the old saying goes ‘you can’t out train your diet’.
You can still keep your social life while dieting, but it will take some adjustments to do so. We cannot expect to keep the same habits that have enabled us to gain weight when we diet.
That said, busy social lives and uncontrolled weekends are the biggest issues we encounter with clients who wish to lose weight.
The majority of our clients travel for work and still achieve great results. Is it harder? Yes, but we help to prepare you for the inevitable obstacles that will come your way.
Once you have hit your goals we work together to instil you with the habits and knowledge needed for long term success. At Thrive,we believethat one of the keys to long term weight management lies in education. With a proper understanding of the principles we empower you to be able to make changes by yourself moving forward.
