Weight

We understand how hard it is to lose weight and keep it off for good. At Lose Weight Feel Great we’ve partnered with specialists to give you the best chance of success.

If you’re trying to lose weight, it is important to aim for steady weight loss rather than losing a lot of weight quickly.

You may lose more in the first couple of weeks but this is normal as your diet changes. Losing weight slowly is the best way to reduce your body fat; if you lose weight too quickly you may start to lose muscle mass or fluid instead.

Weight loss isn’t always going to be one continual downward slope. Some weeks you may lose a lot of weight and others (no matter how hard you try) it doesn’t seem to shift. Don’t worry; as your body adjusts, the speed you lose weight will change. Keep at it and the rewards will be amazing.

If you try to lose weight too quickly you could feel tired, irritable, light headed and very hungry. It is unlikely that you’ll be able to continue like this for the long-term which means that you’ll be more likely to go back to your old eating habits.

Lose Weight Feel Great have lots of people on hand to try to help you to manage the changes in your diet. That way you’ll lose weight and keep it off for good.

Top Tip: Don’t weigh yourself everyday, this can be demoralising as you don’t lose the same amount of weight each day – try to keep it to once a week, so you can really see the difference.
