Maybe exercise isn’t as effective for weight loss as you thought

A new study (Careau et al., Energy compensation and adiposity in humans, current biology (2021)) has been doing the rounds on social media this week, so I thought I’d put a quick post together to discuss the findings and implications of this for MOST people. First off, this paper provides some hugely valuable insights into weight loss, and should be a consideration for all coaches working in the weight loss space. In fact, the main concept should be common knowledge for everyone looking to take control of their own health, and that’s the reason for this article.HOWEVER, before we get...

Strength training and Ageing

Strength and strength training If I was to ask you to define what strength is, what would you say? Being able to deadlift 2x your body weight? Being able to squat 100kg? Being able to perform a pull-up? Being able to jump in the air? Being able to walk up the stairs un-aided?I like to think of ‘strength’ as an umbrella term that includes a few different ‘types’ such as:Absolute strength – think the maximum load that you can lift during a specific exercise Strength endurance – repeatedly exerting force against a resistance Power/Explosive strength – the product of force...

Calories and energy balance: It’s simple, right?

Calories in, Calories out. How many times have you seen this on your social media recently as the holy grail of nutrition? The only thing you need to consider. Generally, this is talking fat loss, and although the message is wholly accurate, it can also be pretty misleading- even harmful if not fully understood. So, here’s something for athlete’s, coaches and gym goers to try to cover some of the key considerations when we’re talking energy balance.  First off, what is energy balance? Energy balance is a simple concept. If energy in (Calories we consume) exactly meets energy out (Calories we burn),...

3 steps to your summer body!

Here it is, summer body time! Another year where there’s a rush to the latest fat loss supplements, fads, and pre holiday gym sessions (the only time of the year where this is an important place to be for some people) to hit those weight loss goals.Here’s how it goes….4 weeks from the holiday- PANIC! Start exercising 4-5x per week- as much CV as you can! Over zealous diet- low carb- low sugar- low fat- low nutrition- low everything. If it has calories, its probably bad right? 2 weeks in- look and feel like s*** Massive blip- take away/ alcohol Bad Day- F it wagon....

Why the Perfect Diet OR Awesome Training Programme doesn’t work

How to get in shape… 80% diet, 20% training……Follow this nutrition plan to shred fat…..This training programme is perfect for fat loss….All of these statements are fundamentally flawed, as fat loss CAN ONLY HAPPEN when both energy intake and energy output are accounted for. Let me talk you through how fat loss works, and explain that when it comes to fat loss, energy in should always be considered alongside energy out- not just from the training session, but over the entire day, repeated consistently the majority of the time for sustainable results.“Wait a minute… I lost...

What does it take to achieve a body transformation? I’m talking about getting huge results in a relatively short space of time- build lean muscle, drop large amounts of bodyfat, look and feel great, be happy and healthy, smiling, laughing, and generally having only one regret…. wishing you’d done it sooner!Well, I’m going to let you in on some truths. Yeah, the end result may be this awesome feeling (and trust me, it will be worth it!), but why doesn’t everyone do it?A body transformation is hard, that’s why.So, before you say “this is it! This is my time”, wait...
