Why do I encourage my clients to prioritise their steps on their weight loss journey❓

A person 🧍🏻‍♀️is limited to the amount of time they can exercise a day. The average person is going to be approx 1-2hours and then they wont burn any more calories from exercise for that day❌.


This is why we have to look at neat, non-exercise activity, thermogenesis when wanting to be in a calorie deficit to help us loose weight, which is all physical activity, that’s not exercise. We can incorporate physical activity 🚶‍♀️into considerablly more hours ⏰ in each day.


This is achieved by doing things like parking further away so you have to walk further, taking the stairs over the lift, going on a lunchtime walk, carrying 🎒the shopping inside in two trips, having a small water bottle 💦to get up and refill more regularly.


The way that we quantify this physical activity can be through step counting, and what I mean by this is turning into something that we can measure📏. This way we can set goals, know if we are on track and have a better understanding of how physically active we are being outside of a gym or exercise 🏋🏻‍♀️environment.


Now when on a weightless ⬇️journey, the gym is still so important to ensure the weight that we’re losing is fat mass and not muscle mass. Strength training 💪🏼will help us maintain the muscle to support our joints and continue to help us move safely and effectively whilst giving us the sculpted physique that we are after😍.


Aim for at least 10,000 steps a day!
