How Long Does it Take to Lose Weight?
I’ve worked with clients from Lake Mary, Florida; Maitland, Florida; Winter Park, Florida; Windemere, Florida; Oviedo, Florida and everyone asks me the same thing the first day:
How long before I see changes in my physique?
My answer is that everyone’s metabolism is different. Everyone’s body is different. Males tend to lose weight a little quicker due to their testosterone levels than women.
However, if you follow a clean nutrition plan, don’t miss your workouts, drink plenty of water and get a good night’s sleep you will see changes in your physique within the first few weeks.
The No. 1 question is about weight loss.
How long does it take to lose weight?
So all you want to know is how long does it take to lose weight?
The answer is up to you. Are you ready to eat the right foods? Can you eat more of the right foods your body needs? Will you eat small portions? Can you cut down on sugar, salt, fast food, fried, food?
Nutrition fuels your body and it should taste good. You can learn how to prepare food by replacing salts, sauces and gravy with seasonings. You can increase your intake of vegetables, protein while cutting out junk food and lots of fat and sugar.
You have to eat properly and have learn about nutrition so that you know what you can eat to help your body as you work out, do cardio, lift weights. You’ll feel better if you drink lots of water, get your rest and have a healthy diet.
Health Problems? Start Working Out
You may or may not want to lose weight. I work with people who don’t want to lose weight. I work with people who just want to get toned and look and feel fit. I work with a lot of people who have health problems that they’re trying to recover from, or avoid.
Exercise and careful workouts with proper form, customized, restricted workouts after an illness, surgery or injury is what I do. I’ll help you recover and get back to your old self–or your new self.
Losing Weight is a Battle of Will
Will you lose weight when you work out? Will you eat right and cut out fast food? Will you stop eating fried food, candy, desserts for breakfast? Will you stop eating ice cream before bed and donuts on coffee breaks? Your ability to lose weight is up to you because only you can control your appetite. Your ability to lose weight means that you’ll have to give up the foods you know you shouldn’t be eating.
So are you ready to get started? I’m going to be tough on you in the gym and I want you to be honest with me about what you’re eating. You can lie to yourself, but you can’t fool me because your body doesn’t lie. If you’re not sticking to a food plan, your body will tell on you. If you’re still sneaking candy bars every night when you drive home after work or school, and then expect to “work it off at the gym” it’s not going to work.
But if you want to eat badly, it’s your choice. If at the end of the day you want someone to train you because you eat poorly and can’t control your diet then I’ll help you do what you can to workout the right way. We’ll customize a plan for your body type, and target some activities and workouts that will help you burn calories, tone your muscle, increase your strength and stamina.
No matter how hard you workout, no mater how many times or how long you do cardio, your personal nutrition is the key to your success. You can keep a food log. You can tell me what you’re doing differently at the dinner table. But your body will tell on you if you’re still sneaking desserts, eating bad carbs, overdoing it with the sauces, cheeses, dips and gravies.
When your nutrition is right and you’re 100% committed to eating the right foods, working out on schedule, then, you will have your answer to the weight loss question. You will lose weight when you’re eating right. Nutrition is 85% of weight loss and getting physically fit.
When you’re doing cardio, weight-bearing excercises and making healthy changes you’ll be on the path to weight loss. I can train you, I can help you to write down what you eat, but you have to commit to your goals. It’s my job to guide you.
How important is nutrition to reaching my fitness goals?
I believe if you’re trying to lose some body fat that it is 80 to 85% from your nutrition. If you’re trying to get more toned and defined, 80 to 85% is because of nutrition.
You can do all the exercises you want five to seven days a week. But if you don’t follow a good nutrition plan you will not see that body fat go down, losing inches or the scale going down. However you will feel healthier and more energized from doing all the exercises but again, you will not see the change of the weight coming down or the body fat dropping.

Eating Healthy is the First Step
Healthy living is not only my career it’s my way of life. I work out daily, I eat healthy food and cook meals with recipes that replace seasonings and ingredients to make healthy food taste delicious.
What you eat should be your biggest concern. I know how hard it is to find time to eat healthy food or prepare it when you work, have children, school. If you want your workouts to matter, you have to eat the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, vegetables and begin cutting out what you know is bad for you.
It’s not going to happen overnight because change takes time, but the longer you wait, the worse you’re going to feel. When I work you out, you’ll need to have the right nutrition to power up for your training sessions. Get ready by starting today.
