If you have been training hard, yet you fail to see the results – it is your nutrition that needs to be regulated. If you are wanting to see a result yet do it in a healthy and sustainable manner – this is for you.
This is the most thorough plan and I usually suggest it for:
- a) clients that are new to tracking and
- b) those who like to see a strict plan on paper, that they need to follow, as this increases their adherence level.
I always suggest going for at least 12 weeks, since developing new healthy habits does take a bit of time and it requires consistency for longer than the initial 8 weeks.
Furthermore, many people come to me because they have been ‘dieting’ wrongly for a while, so often times you will need to go through the reverse diet process and or couple of dieting phases; so a longer period of time is needed.
However, if you are on a budget or feel like you need just that initial guideline as to how to eat correctly for your goal, 8 weeks will suffice.
