Hiring on a personal trainer as part of an overall fitness and weight loss plan is rapidly becoming a very popular trend. The reasoning behind this is quite simple: encouragement and professional advice helps someone starting out on the path to fitness stay with it longer. A big part of dieting and exercising is psychological and being able to see progress reduces the likelihood that you will give up from a lack of results. Of course, the nutritional planning provided by your trainer will also help the cause by giving you a proper diet and meal plan to follow, all geared towards successful weight loss.

Nutritional Counseling vs. Trendy Diets

One of the biggest and most profitable businesses today is the creation and marketing of trendy diets that guarantee they will help you lose weight quickly. What many people do not realize is that most of those diets are not even remotely healthy and many of them actually do more harm to your body than good. Only solid nutritional planning, backed up with a sensible diet and exercise plan, can help you to lose the weight you want, in a manner that is medically sound.

Trendy diets tend to either ridiculously limit or completely eliminate nutrients and nutritional groups that our bodies need daily to function properly. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are the usual targets. Sure, drastically altering the amount that you take in every day will cause you to lose weight, simply because your body is working overtime trying to adjust to the changes. However, once it does catch up, the weight loss shrinks to hardly anything, while you are continuing to lose vital nutrients and vitamins that your body needs to heal and provide energy. A sound diet that balances out all nutrients from the different food groups, in just the right amounts, is far better and healthier. And when combined with the right exercise program, it will help you burn off excess body fat.
