walk 2 run support
Have you signed up to Walk 2 Run?
Or are thinking about it?
Is one of the reasons Weight loss?
If it is, here’s the deal.
I’m offering an introductory support package to go with your Walk 2 Run course. If you think I can help, message or call me.
First of all, let’s replace ‘Weight loss’ with ‘Fat loss’,
because it’s not the same thing.
Now read on…..

“But you’re not over weight, no wonder you stay slim with all that running you do”
‘But you’re not overweight, no wonder you stay slim with all that running you do’
I’m often told this, and for the record my size fluctuates depending on how much I follow my own advice.
‘Bet you can eat what you like with all that running you do’
So if running doesn’t maintain my dress size, what does?
YOU CAN’T OUTRUN
A BAD DIET
“Bet you can eat what you like with all that running you do”
So here’s the thing
Calories in calories out. Simple. If you eat more than you need for maintenance, you will increase in size. If you don’t have a deficit you won’t go down a size. Also it’s important not to cut too many calories under your baseline or you may well start to lose muscle mass which will show as loss of lbs on the scales. ‘Great I lost 8lbs this week on the scales’ But how much of that was fat? Scales don’t know the difference. Slowly losing fat is far more beneficial than instant weight loss.
It doesn’t matter how much exercise you’re doing if you still eat more calories than you’re using you will get bigger. Exercise, alongside diet, is a brilliant combination as it helps to build and maintain lean muscle mass and burn fat. Using weights in particular is hugely beneficial.
I don’t calorie count for myself and when I’m exercising heavily I need to eat more to maintain and can be in too much deficit. But if I’m injured or just resting I have to adjust again. You can’t reward yourself with a donut just because you’ve run 5k if you don’t make adjustments to your daily calorie in take else where. Various APPs can really help with tracking calories, My Fitness Pal does a pretty good job.
As a Personal Trainer I ask clients to keep a food diary which can often be quite revealing and shocking to the client when you start writing everything down. Also daily photographic updates. I do it myself every now and again…it’s amazing what you forget!
If all this feels overwhelming but you want to try and make a difference, get in touch. Let’s do this together. I won’t make you run through a muddy skip though, ha ha (unless you want to)
Here’s the package
