Struggling With Weight Loss? Here's What I Told My Client...

Are you struggling with weight loss despite hitting the gym regularly?


Do you feel exhausted, listless, and sad after working out? If so, you might be overtraining or experiencing post-exercise malaise. These conditions can take a toll on your overall well-being and prevent you from reaching your fitness goals.

Overtraining can cause fatigue, decreased performance, and even increase the risk of injury. It's important to gradually increase the intensity and duration of your exercise routine to avoid overtraining. Incorporating a variety of activities like walking, strength training, and yoga can also help boost your endorphins and make you feel good.

If you're experiencing post-exercise malaise, it's best to talk to your healthcare provider to rule out any underlying health conditions. They can help you develop a plan to manage your symptoms and optimize your overall health and well-being. It's also important to listen to your body and take rest days when you're feeling tired or fatigued.

If you're concerned that exercise will increase your appetite and prevent weight loss, don't worry. Regular physical activity can help regulate appetite and speed up your metabolism, especially if you focus on putting on lean muscle. Unlike regular muscle, lean muscle doesn't carry fat around it, which means an increase in lean muscle can increase your metabolism and help you decrease your body fat.

One pound of lean muscle burns 50 calories at rest, and it takes 4 to 6 weeks to develop. Incorporating strength training into your workout routine can help you build lean muscle and increase your metabolism.

But what about feeling too exhausted to prepare a healthy meal after a workout? Finding the energy and motivation to cook a nutritious meal after a physically demanding workout can be challenging. One solution is to plan ahead and prepare healthy meals in advance. This way, you have a healthy meal waiting for you when you get home, without having to worry about cooking.

In conclusion, exercise should improve your overall well-being and make you feel good. If you're feeling tired, listless, and sad after returning to the gym, it may be time to reassess your exercise routine and make some changes. Remember to listen to your body and take rest days when needed. With the right approach, you can overcome overtraining, post-exercise malaise, and other obstacles to achieve your fitness goals.
