Do I need to cut out all the foods I enjoy?

Absolutely not!

All you need to do is use one of the methods to monitor/ track your food / drinks intake, be in some form of moderation and then anything you want to have can still be enjoyed. Check out my cook books for some tasty treats. These are all included with each training plan.

Remember your Cycle

Your menstrual cycle over the month would not effect your actual body weight changes but it can effect your cravings for certain foods. water balance and general energy levels that may cause changes to how you perform during your weight loss period.

It is important to monitor your calorie consumption to some degree, as you need to maintain a healthy amount of calories to provide energy to the body for daily activities, along side working out. If you go into the territory of very low daily calorie diets that you see on social media, there can be other unhealthy side effects like, not losing weight, moodiness as a result changes to hormonal levels, deficient in certain vitamins and nutrients and even effecting your ovulation cycle.

Once you are working out effectively, having a balanced diet that is nutrient rich, filling and enjoyable, you will be on track to loosing your first few pounds.

If you are approaching the menopause, then it is completely normal for some weight gain as your hormonal changes create a different balance in your body, but this can be worked with, through your training.
