If you want to get the best help for weight loss in Atlanta, consider going to a personal trainer. Their knowledge base is all about getting the body fitter, healthier and yes, thinner. The world of weight loss can be confusing and sometimes dangerous, particularly if you’re speaking of some of the fad diets and drugs that promise weight loss with no change in diet. The only way to lose weight is to eat fewer calories than you consume. That can occur with healthy eating and regular exercise.
A healthy diet is key to weight loss.
There’s a famous saying that you can’t out-exercise a bad diet. It’s very true. That’s why to maximize your weight loss goals we extend beyond basic nutrition. At Midtown Trainers we offer our members a registered dietitian to create customized meal plans and metabolic testing to find the right fuel for your body, and more importantly your goals.
A good weight loss program has another element, regular exercise.
While you can’t out-exercise a bad diet, you can get more results when you add exercise to your program when you eat a healthy diet. Exercise not only burns calories that helps you lose weight, it builds muscle tissue, too. Muscle tissue requires more calories to maintain than fat tissue does, so the more you have, the higher your metabolism. That means you’ll lose weight faster and keep it off easier.
Not all personal trainers have the knowledge to help you with a healthy diet, so make sure you check what each one offers before signing up to work with them.
Personal trainers also can help you learn how to make substitutions, like using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for baked potatoes or eating brown rice instead of white rice for more nutrients and fewer calories.
