Recipe for Weight Loss…

Terrible title – cringe. Here we go though, straight forward stuff:

EAT: real, whole food.
Meal replacements, quick fixes and fads are nothing but trouble and cause the yo-yo effect in which you become miserable and trapped.
EAT: the right amount of calories for your needs
There is no one-size-fits-all number of calories to eat and for goodness sake stay away from the 1200 marker WTAF!? Why? Because if you aren’t eating enough then your metabolism slows down and then when you eat more you gain weight, again, yo-yo effect.
DRINK: lots and lots of lovely water!!!
You’ll feel fuller, more energetic, your skin will look fresher and less dull: your body will thank you for it.
LIFT: pick up heavy shit and put it down; repeat til tired out.
More muscle mass (this DOES NOT mean you will be “bulky” – fuck right off). More muscle mass = higher metabolism = higher number of calories burnt at rest.
Use the very basics and work from there:
Upper body push (bench press), Upper body pull (bent row)
Lower body push (Squat), Lower body pull (dead lift)
There you go – all that for free. Start out simple; small changes can make big things happen!

I’m Holly, a fitness instructor, personal trainer, massage therapist, assessor, tutor, and pre and post natal exercise specialist. Born and raised in rural Northumberland I am passionate about the outdoors, health, fitness, and general wellness. I believe it is important to look after body through exercise and nutrition, and finding “me-time” to look after your own physical and emotional well-being. Along side providing health and fitness advice, I also offer coaching and lifestyle advice; helping clients work through their stresses and reducing daily pressures through coping mechanisms which are easy to access and perform. As I come to add content to this blog, you will get to know me through everything from the food I eat, the exercise I do (and don’t do), the books I read, how I like to spend my free time (yes, free time!), and probably a lot more along the way. I’ll be sharing more information shortly but for now, I wish you a very enjoyable day!
