Fitness Tips

Life After A Diet: 3 tips to make the transition easier.

Progress does not end because a diet has ended.

Fat loss has only been one facet and not the entire story of my transformation.

Eating, building muscle, and getting stronger has been my primary focus and where I have devoted most of my time and focus.

Not on dieting.

Here are 3 tips for those of you nervous about getting out of a deficit for a reverse diet, maintenance phase, or build.

1. Focus on how you feel each day. Not on how much you weigh. Before you weigh yourself, write down on a scale of 1-10 how your energy is that day. 10 being fantastic. This alternate scale number is an amazing indicator of your progress.

2. Create a performance goal for yourself and create a plan to work towards it. Use your added calories to help you get better at something you find enjoyable.

3. Remember that when it comes down to it, in life, our goals are to feel good, and to feel good, longterm. We want to be able to live a life we love and be there for the people who need us. I also plan to be a jacked and badass grandma one day. That will only happen if I keep working to make it happen NOW.
