1.How do I not binge eat?
Life’s biggest mystery.Personally, binge eating is a huge issue for me. I really really struggle with binge eating. I always have and is something I still struggle with today I find there is really nothing that anyone can tell you that’s gonna be a quick fix when it comes to binge eating. So one thing that I have found has helped me though is literally not having the food to binge on. So a big question I get all the time is how do I not eat the whole block of chocolate? Don’t buy the whole block of chocolate like that is literally what I do.
If I feel like a treat if I feel like some chocolate but I know I’m gonna eat the whole damn block. I don’t buy the block by like a little bar something small that’s portion control, which is still a good treat but you’re not going to go overboard if you have a pantry full of biscuits and chocolate and sweets cheeses whatever it might be which is the binge food you are going to binge on it. If it’s there so don’t have it in the house, that is the one thing that works for me.
If I don’t have it in the house I can’t binge on it and it’s just self-control. So you need to keep reminding yourself of your goals why am I not binging on that food, how is that gonna make me feel, keep reminding yourself how you’re gonna feel after you binge on that food. You’re gonna feel lousy, bloated, tired, your digestive is gonna be poor, you don’t feel really really crap if you resist it and you don’t binge, you’ll, later on, fill awesome because you’re still got energy. But you will also be like a damn girl, I smashed that I didn’t binge and your mental power will get stronger every single time.
So my number one tip when it comes to binge eating is don’t buy the food. You know you’re gonna binge on and number two focus on your self-control.
2.Weights or cardio which ones that we do?
Do I do weights? do I do cardio? do I do both? That totally depends on your goals. If you like a balanced routine, you might want to do a bit of both. I personally for myself and the majority of my clients of course depending on their goals will prescribe a mix of cardio and weights or resistance training home workouts. You can use your body weight if you don’t have weights.
If you are focusing on predominantly weight loss cardio is an important aspect hit training specifically is incredible for cardio but also do not underestimate the power of a good walk and just getting your body moving so like less cardio which some of you might be familiar with low intensity steady-state so lift and hit cardio great for people that want to lose weight.
But also resistance training is fantastic. So subscribes and some push-ups and things like that are going to go such a long way in helping you build a little bit of muscle which is gonna burn body fat as well and you’ll feel stronger. For people that are really looking to try and gain a serious amount of muscle, you may want to back off on your cardio a little bit.
If you were trying to gain lots of muscle you should back off on your cardio a little bit because you do compromise your muscle when you do too much cardiovascular exercise.
3.How many workouts should we be doing every week?
One two six seven, should I be training twice a day? Again this is goal dependent depends on the individual what are you hoping for. Is it weight loss? I would definitely be recommending at least three to four sessions a week. I would be aiming for four if you have a lot of weight to lose or if you’re really serious, if you’re looking for a serious muscle gain I would be looking at at least five sessions a week hitting those muscles from every angle and really really work hard in the gym or from home.
But overall I definitely think with a healthy body healthy mind at least three to four sessions a week. Is the way to go and yet build on that see how you feel. If you personally love training every day in the gym go for it but make sure you give yourself rest days, as well as rest, is where the magic happens. okay!
4.What qualifications do you need to be a personal trainer?
5.Will I get bulky if I lift weights?
I once upon a time didn’t know anything about exercise or weights anything at all but whenever I saw an advertisement for a gym or anything to do with weights it was always a really muscly person promoting them or in a photo. So I understand why people have the perception that if you pick up weights you’re going to get bulky! but the reality is that’s just not the case girls let’s say 99% of females do not have the testosterone levels that it would take to build bulky muscle.
Now, this, of course, depends on your definition of bulky but if you’re talking bodybuilder style you are not going to get bulky ladies just by lifting some weights in the gym unless you are taking supplements or eating 3,000 calories a day. To grow that type of muscle lifting weights is going to make your bones stronger, it’s going to make everything stronger.
It’s gonna make you feel amazing you’re gonna build beautiful muscle tone and you will build a little bit of muscle, but you are not going to have guns the size of your head unless you are training specifically for that. It is a lot harder to build muscle than you think, so please don’t stress about trying some weights in the gym give it a go and if it’s not for you if you try it and you hate it you can come back and go out I tried it, I hate it, I’m never doing it, again that’s all right just try.
