Your Diet

The key to any healthy diet is to monitor the amount and type of calories you consume on a daily basis. From a volume perspective, consuming more calories than you burn off will ultimately result in weight gain. Unfortunately, those on a weight control diet tend to use the logic that missing a meal altogether is the best way to reduce calorie intake. Denying your body of a regular calorie intake can slow down your metabolism resulting in fewer calories burned throughout the day. Also, as your body is desperate for energy and you are refusing to supply it, you will go into survival mode where your body will actually store more calories from yournext meal, which can actually lead to weight gain.

From a type of calorie perspective, it is important to supply your body with a variety of nutrients to make up your daily calorie allowance. Eat small meals on a regular basis to keep your metabolism active and make sure you consume protein, low GI carbohydrates, fibrous vegetables and healthy fats.

Training

The aim of this programme is to help you burn off excess body fat and promote the growth or maintenance of lean body tissue. Training should combine resistance exercise and cardiovascular exercise. The more lean tissue your body is made up of, the more calories youwill burn during exercise. One thing to avoid is the concept that working a certain muscle, abdominals being a perfect example, will not result in reduced body fat around this muscle. You need to work all muscles evenly at the correct intensity.

This training programme is based on a frequency of 3-4 sessions per week. Attempt to have at least one day of rest in between each exercise session. Please seek the advice of a fitness professional regarding the correct form and technique of all the following exercises and ensure a thorough warm-up is performed before you start the programme and a thorough cool down is performed after the programme.

The intensity to which you work during this programme should be based on your current level of fitness. Resistance exercises should be moderate and should not elicit complete muscular fatigue upon completion of the specified sets and repetitions.

 

Cardiovascular Exercise

Any cardiovascular exercise can be performed for a total of 45 minutes. Your cardiovascular exercise may be a single exercise or combination of exercises and can include running, swimming, cycling, rowing or any other rhythmic cardiovascular exercise. Work should be performed at around 50-70% maximum heart rate. Try and vary your cardiovascular exercise as much as possible in order to avoid reaching early plateaus in your fitness levels.

 

Resistance Exercise

Chest Press: 2 sets of 10-15 reps

Lat Pulldown: 2 sets of 10-15 reps

Squats: 2 sets of10-15 reps

Shoulder Press: 2 sets of 10-15 reps

Lunges: 2 sets of 10-15 reps

Abdominal Crunches: 2 sets of10-15 reps

We highly recommend seeking the advice of a medical expert before commencing any exercise routine. This training programme should be viewed as a guide only and should be adapted to meet your individual requirements and current level of fitness.
