Q: I’ve been training hard and eating well but I haven’t lost any weight, what might be happening?

A: There are currently lots of people now trying to get fit and healthy and to do that are training hard in the gym or out on the roads while eating a nutritionally balanced diet. This is great! However, some of us are so fixated on the number on the weighing scales that we get disheartened when the number don’t drop. But don’t throw all your good work away too hastily – some weeks your body might be building up some lean muscle mass and at the same time you could be losing body fat. This is often happening when we don’t see the numbers changing on the scales. Try using your clothes as a guide of changes happening instead of just the number on the weighing scales. Eating well and keeping fit will also results in health gain so keep up the good work!
