‘Set realistic goals’ to lose weight fast
People hoping to lose weight and keep it off should not set unrealistic goals for themselves, it has been advised.
According to celebrity personal trainer Matt Roberts, who counts Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha among his clients, setting achievable goals is the first step on the road to slimming success.
He told the Daily Mail that one proven tip is to set small targets that can be achieved on a weekly basis and then be ticked off regularly, which helps to maintain motivation.
“For example, this week decide you’re going to go for a brisk walk every other day, or that you’ll cut down on alcohol. Next week, aim to drink less coffee, eat fewer biscuits, or eat green vegetables with every meal,” he suggested.
Within one month, Mr Roberts said that people will have made six small changes that can make a “huge difference” to their body.
He told the newspaper that setting unrealistic goals means people will nearly always fail and feel de-motivated, while “small, manageable changes” help them to stay focused.
